Bedtime Stories (read aloud some with illustrations)

I hope you enjoy these stories. To get a sample of what they are like click the "Play video" links, these are streamed versions and should start playing in a minute or so. Normally it is better to be patient and click the "Download Video" links, then you will have the story on your computer to play again and again or share with friends! If you would like a higher quality version on disk please email Tim (tim@carey.ac.nz). Please also email me if you have trouble with the Windows Media Player files and try the Real Player ones - making these available as well is an experiment, so I need feedback whether people can see them or not!
