I have memories, just on the edge of where memories begin, of sitting listening to stories on the radio with my older sister and being terrified - I think it was Nancy Drew Mysteries. With no television the boys have their own ways of entertaining themselves - books, drawing, music, games and of course stories on CD. William is totally engrossed in his Doctor Who CD and luckily has Scooby Doo there to hide behind if it all gets a bit much. Listening to a story allows the imagination greater flexibility. It's also a great activity to do on a damp January afternoon, curled up on the sofa with hot chocolate and Jammie Dodgers (Dr Who's favourite) in your tummy.
