What’s the difference between “Martin & Sylvia” and “At Home with Martin & Sylvia”?

“At Home with Martin & Sylvia” is crafted for the youngest listeners.  The storylines are simpler and follow the sweet adventures the two children take together in their day to day life.  (For example, in one wintertime “At Home with Martin & Sylvia” story, Martin and Sylvia have a snowy adventure following animal tracks in their yard.)

The original “Martin & Sylvia” includes the same, while adding a layer of gentle complexity, often in the form of a small challenge that brother and sister meet.  (For example, in one wintertime  “Martin & Sylvia” story, Martin and Sylvia both have excellent ideas for First Day snow sculptures, but only one idea will be chosen.)  These original stories follow children’s experience of meeting the small challenge, growing in relation to that challenge, and finding a delightful and satisfying resolution.
