Eric B. Hare

When I was just a little boy we use to get these 45 records with stories on them by Eric B. Hare. I understand he also wrote a number of books. Does anyone still have any of his records or books?

Ah, yes, who can forget Pip Pip, the naughty chicken?

I think you should inquire in the book section, Shane...

I told the story of Pip pip to the Salvadoran students in the academy when I met my wife and they couldn't hear it enough times. I don't think Elder Hare's stories were ever translated or if they were they were not distributed well. There are thousands of Adventists in Latin America that have never heard any of his stories although they know Uncle Author well.

I would love to get copies of some of his stories - especially audio.

Due to Eric B. Hare, every time I see someone with big hands, I think, "great big finguhs like bahNAHnahs!"

The PUC college station, back in the late 70s, used to play Eric B. Hare stories on Sabbath mornings during their children's program. It seems like those records ought to exist in multiple locations. In fact, I think I have some myself, but I don't know where I've stored them.

I remember him coming to the Primary division at a campmeeting in Ohio and telling a story to us kids. He sat while he told the story, instead of standing up like everyone else. He was a super story teller. I think my favorite book of his was Clever Queen. I also enjoyed the devotional he wrote which detailed his experiences when the war impacted Burma.

My most memorable Eric B. Hare phrase in his books (also scriptural): "Don't you know? Haven't you heard? Hasn't anyone ever told you?" Those little repetitions breed familiarity and enjoyment in the ears of a child.

OH, yes, and my grandchildren still play that story of Pip Pip! My first grandchild started the craze. I told him that his mummy used to love the story. Everytime we went for a ride in the car his first request was, "Pip-pip!" -- of course, he knew it off by heart! What memories!

Some of the stories are available on audio cassette through your local ABC (there are five cassettes to the set)

I have one of those tapes. But my favorite story was retold by Dick O'Fill at campmeeting, the one about the elephant. So I forget the details. <img src="http://www.clubadventist.com/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" /> But I've always enjoyed mission stories when I was a kid. And to have them come in the costumes of the countries they served in--awesome. Think that might be one reason that I feel restless at times. <img src="http://www.clubadventist.com/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" /> And geography was my all time favorite subject when I was in elementary. <img src="http://www.clubadventist.com/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

We have the 5 cassettes, as well as some of the old records at my parents' house. My all-time favorite (and my boys' as well) is the Little Engine with the Bright Shiny Eye Right in the Middle of his Forehead. My 4-year old can do the whole routine--I don't want to go want to go want to go every day every day every day, etc. It's a scream!

Also, you can get Packy, Pokey, and Sally all on one tape at the local ABC. That is the absolute favorite!

We used to have the tapes when my children were small, I think they probably got worn out. I do still have quite a few of his books, and still enjoy looking thru them from time to time. Dr Rabbit is a good one, and Clever Queen the ultimate classic. But I suspect you need to hear his voice to get maximum benefit !

We have certainly been blessed with a wealth of story tellers. I remember hearing Josephine Cunningham Edwards and listening to Eric B. Hare's tapes about the monkey and the elephant.

Brings a tear of nostalgia to my eye.

Who is Eric B. Hare?? am i missing out on something?

He was way before your time agewise. Not being SDA as many years, you may not have heard of him.

Ask Stephanie if she has any of his books for you to read to Hannah.

I remember the story about the girl who stuck her hand in to touch the little birdies and got bit by a snake instead, and all the things her mother did to get the poisen out.

Thank you. I had forgotten the girl's name and could only remember her sister's name. We had the story on a small record. I don't know whatever happened to it now.

I remember that the nationals called Eric Hare Doctor Rabbit. I believe there was a book by that name.

When I was much younger (about 45 years ago) Elder Hare came to visit our small (25 members) church. He came to the children's Sabbath School and told us a story. I don't remember what it was about. All that I noticed was his accent. I thought something was wrong with him, and that he should learn to talk properly. But I really enjoyed "Clever Queen," and listening to him at other times when I realized that people from different parts of the world talk differently from little girl who thought she knew everything!

I too remember stories by Eric B. Hare. I attended a Adventist school in the country in the Okanagan Valley and another writer that really caught our imagination with his books was Sam Campbell. Our teachers would read them to us each afternoon after lunch during our story time. We felt like we were right there with the characters in his books. Some of his books were Tippy Canoe and Canada, Too , Moose Country and The Seven Secrets of Somewhere Lake . One of the characters in some of his books was Hi-Bub and we really got to know him well. Sam Campbell was a naturalist, lecturer, photographer and philosopher and today his books are still sold by Pacific Press. We were thrilled to have Sam Campbell come and visit our little community and show some of his movies. Great man! His books will always hold a special place in my heart!

Like you I have read and enjoyed Sam Campbell's books many times. Recently I decided to do a Google search on him and came across a guy who has put out a CD of Sam's film clips . They are silent and not always of the best quality and sometimes repetitive - but wonderfully enjoyable.

Nan--cool! I grew up after the era when he'd come to schools and show his movies (my parents saw them), and have always been intrigued. I may have to look that up myself. One of my favorite stories is in The Seven Secrets of Somewhere Lake when he and Ginny go to the Grand Canyon and he shoots rolls and rolls of film of the mountain lion family and discovers, after falling down the mountain and scaring them away, that his lens cap was on the whole time. (In fact, I think that's my all-time favorite book of all of them.)

Nan, thanks. I'll have to see if I can find that site. I'd love to see some of Sam's films again. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />
