From the delightfully entertaining delivery to the works themselves, nostalgia permeates these charming stories of bygone Christmases in the American South. Adding to the atmosphere are lovely piano interludes between each short work. Storyteller Donald Davis's accent and delivery enhance his fine writing. The word "squeak" is most satisfactorily pronounced, just as we imagine it should be. Listeners will laugh out loud when a child playing a sheep in the Nativity play utters "waa, waa, waa" so convincingly that his proud grandma brags that little Junior got his lines down perfectly. Add this sweet confection to your Christmas listening plans.
