Fresh: Nap-ster

Preschool teacher Judy Rundell of Highland Park couldn’t find a CD that would occupy the children who couldn’t nap during rest time.

So she started recording her own—she now has two volumes of Quiet Time Stories, each with more than an hour of contemporary fairytale adaptations set to music by Chicago composer Derrick Procell. Many parents say the CDs soothe their children to sleep at night.
