  1. I am a father of two preschoolers and from time to time I make toddler apps – am working on an idea of making small interactive story book app and was looking for someone to record the audio (in English) for small stories that I want to use. I came across your profile on Storytelling Institute website and thought of contacting you – can you do something like this i.e. record high quality audio and send it to me – or do you know of some good storytellers in Kolkata whom I can connect to (I can arrange for recording myself here).

    Please let me know
    Just out of interest – if you have excerpts of any of your stories, then please send the link to me – my sons are 2 and 4 and every night I tell them stories with a lot of animation and try to change my pitch and voice as well – am keen on listening to professional storytellers myself even though the stories are for kids only 🙂
