Storytelling • 58 min. • Abridged • © 1990

On the first day of school Miss Daisy caught a mouse and squashed it in front of her speechless class--there was never a discipline problem after that. Similarly, when Miss Daisy revealed that in the original Olympics they ran without clothing, the classroom was as quiet as when the mouse died. North Carolina storyteller Davis's pacing and tone are perfect as he delivers these gems. Later, when Davis's mother needed a babysitter, she found a woman "who was old, she could have been 50, she was up there." Davis's emphasis on the words "old" and "up there" perfectly captures a kid's view of age. Most beautiful is his recitation of Kipling's poetry as the babysitter entertains the children.
