Tim Seston: Wake the Imagination

Tim Seston: Wake the Imagination
Title: Wake the Imagination
Label: CD Baby

Each story on Wake the Imagination captures the innocence of childhood and the creative way little boys and girls explore the world. Each character on the CD was inspired by someone in Tim's personal or professional storytelling life. Upon becoming a father in March of 2005, Tim began writing and performing stories about common childhood experiences that resonate both with children and the adults who care for them. Tim's clever stories written in verse are perfect for a car ride, bedtime, or listening with your family in the living room. Here is a quick synopsis of each of the sixteen stories. The full text of each can be found on Tim's website: From Page To Play. 'Chilly Little Charlie' tells the story of a boy who finds himself too cold in bed. With each successive visit by his parents he gets warmer and warmer until at last he is comfortable and silly enough to go to sleep. 'Peter's Fire Suit' simulates the fast paced changes of a first responder from a little boy's point of view. With the help of Smokey his puppy, Peter breaks the record and is ready to put out fires. On his way up to bed Oliver finds a a handful of common household items. He then uses his imagination to create and build 'Oliver's Elephant' in his very own room. Tori is new in town. She brings her ball to the 'Neighborhood Rock' only to find Emlen sitting on top and reading her book. Fortunately for both of them there is lots of common ground and much to pretend as they form a life long friendship. When Sophie and Ben start pretending at the park there is no stopping this set of twin's imaginations. They gain steam as they feed off each other's ideas in creating 'Sophie and Ben's Dragon.' Do you want to know what 'Daria's Cats' do when she is away? They don't just eat and sleep the day away. Instead they call all their friends and have a great party. 'Ryan and Daniel's Foxtail' gets caught up in a tree. Neither shouting nor pouting seems to do much good but teamwork and a little bit of fun are just what these two boys need to get their toy unstuck. Sam loads up his wagon, grabs his wand and heads to the pond near his house. There he assembles the four elements: Earth, Water, Fire and Air and amazes his friends with the creation of 'Sam's Dragon'. At it again, this time the twins are out in the rain creating 'Sophie and Ben's Pirate Ship.' They battle the elements and finally call it a day after plenty of laughter and a bit of adventure. Two siblings have been stuck indoors for five straight days as the rains come pouring down. But on that sixth day the sun is shining and the river has absorbed it all. The two children take off on 'Henry and Ella's Canoe Ride' to explore the wildlife in Concord, MA. He is up again and ready for the day but his parents need him to take his nap. Little Charlie at the Park slides, and climbs and swings until finally he is ready to sleep. Winter is in full swing but in New England no season is sacred and spring could be right around the corner. Jack can't wait to try out his new scooter. After a night filled with a bit of magic the following day is just perfect for 'Jack's Scooter Ride.' The girls are all over for 'Violet's Slumber Party' when out pops a little creature to liven up the party and put forth a clever little test. He is not even old enough to walk yet, but 'Nicholas's Morning Routine' includes getting out of bed by himself and getting his hands on any widget, gadget or gizmo he can find. 'Duncan's Surprise' has to wait 7 more days until his birthday next Friday. Each day he wakes up and makes his parents laugh with requests for cake, ice cream, presents, etc. But news of a new baby catches him quite off guard. What should she do on Sunday? Skiing? Ballet? Gymnastics? Swimming? 'Sydney's Cats' weigh in on the idea and think a game of soccer would be just right for Sydney and her sister Samantha.
