All 26 Episodes of “The Cinnamon Bear” are Available for FREE Download

THANK YOU TO LIVING BOOKS FOR THE EARS FOR MAKING AVAILABLE THIS FREE DOWNLOAD!

Here is an excerpt from Living Books for the Ears about The Cinnamon Bear series:

“The CINNAMON BEAR is the classic story of Judy and Jimmy Barton who search for the family’s Silver Star which goes on top of their Christmas tree.  They discover the star has disappeared from the attic.  Then they meet The Cinnamon Bear, and fly to Maybeland in his Soda Pop Airplane in pursuit of the Crazy Quilt Dragon, whom they believe took the ornament.  They meet a host of characters, including Crazy Quilt Dragon, The Wintergreen Witch, Fe Fo the Giant, and even Santa Claus.

Each 15 minute adventure in this 26 episode radio series is a cliffhanger.  Several times they recover the star, only to lose it again.  Eventually the star is found for good and they return home just in time for Christmas.

This classic story was written by Glan Heisch, inspired by the stuffed bear of his boyhood, for his daughter, Catherine.  Radio historians differ on the year of the first broadcast.  Some say 1937, others say 1943.  It would seem that it was “heard” several years before it was transcribed for broadcast.  Airplay would start just after Thanksgiving and run until Christmas Eve. But you can listen to these at your own pace all through the holiday season! (Warning: Your kids WILL beg for more, so use ’em as an incentive reward to get things like schoolwork and chores done around the house! ha ha)

Content Note: In this 26 part series, the characters do encounter a witch and some magical creatures. These are not “Harry Potter” type realistic characters, but old fashioned cartoony 1930’s versions. However, because some parents wish us to let them know if there are elements of magic in a program in any shape or form, we’re letting you know that now.”

CLICKING THE LINK BELOW WILL TAKE YOU TO THE WEB SITE PAGE WHERE ALL 26 EPISODES ARE AVAILABLE.  PLUS, THERE IS A BONUS DOWNLOAD OF A FREE COLORING BOOK TO GO ALONG WITH THE SERIES!

Jacquie Lawson eCards

Jacquie Lawson has gorgeous animated musical eCards available for a low-cost annual subscription.  They are the best I’ve ever come across! She has also turned some of her cards into screensavers.  I became a subscriber last November and did not hesitate to renew when the time came.  Today, I happened to get a forward from a friend.  Honestly, my first thought was, “Another one?”  But, this time, I decided to check it out and was delighted to find a cute little Christmas-themed matching game with a “surprise” card underneath.  You guessed it!  It was a Jacquie Lawson card! That reminded me to tell you all about the site.

Click the link below to play the card game.  I confess, I played it 5 times. And my boys played it several times each.  The matches reset each time the game is played.  So, have fun!  And, if you like what you see, click on the About This Card link below the card to go to the Jacquie Lawson site and check out more of her cards.  Are you behind on getting out your Christmas cards, or just don’t have the money to buy and mail a bunch of them?  With one subscription, you can send as many beautiful cards as you want!
