Bilingual storyteller Joe Hayes tells two of the scariest stories on one CD! La Llorona / The Weeping Woman & El Cucuy: a bogeyman cuento, both told in English & Spanish.

This is one scary CD! Nobody tells these two cautionary tales quite like master bilingual storyteller Joe Hayes. Every Hispanic kid has heard these stories growing up. If the story of El Cucuy, with his big red ear that hears everything, doesn’t send chills down your kids’ spines, then the tale of the weeping woman who searches the riverbanks for wandering kids will surely do it. And, as Joe Hayes knows only too well, kids love to be scared! And they love to hear stories of bad kids—much worse than they are—who finally get the comeuppance they deserve! Joe tells these beloved tales in both English and Spanish, making for a fun and frightening way to get acquainted with a second language.
