WDA Classics

The classics: those literary works which have withstood the test of time and became preserved to share with generations for decades to come.  Check back often as "new" titles will be added over time to give you the opportunity to enrich your personal library with tales from the masters.

The works included here are some of W.B. Ward's personal favorites and are stories he read as a young child.   These are tales which you can enjoy for yourself, and the share with your children for years to come.

From here you can select between the audio or print version of some of the best tales composed by literary masters.  Enjoy them as individual creations or order both - read the book while listening to the audio to enable the words to seemingly leap from the page and come to life in your very hands!
