The Stable that Stayed by Josephine Balfour Payne and Joan Balfour Payne

Once the barn was beautiful and red and very fine, but now it is rundown and lonely. Who will come and live in the lonely old barn? This narrated book for elementary-aged children teaches the lesson that we are happiest when we are useful, grateful, and loved.


What children read at an early age molds and shapes not only their minds but their hearts. The Good and the Beautiful is on a mission to bring back beautiful, high-quality literature for children. The Good and the Beautiful Storytime and the included free audio books for kids were created to give children and parents a place to find rich literature presented in an engaging way. It is our hope that as children read and listen to these books, it will fill their hearts and minds with beauty and goodness.
