FATHER WAS A WISE OLD MAN

by | Read by Donald Davis

Biography & Memoir • 1 hr. • Abridged • © 2001

Lively fiddle music is interspersed throughout these historical snippets as storyteller Donald Davis and his father visit the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, DC. The displays of Americana remind the senior Davis of events in his life, which are relayed through Davis's matchless performance. When Davis sees a huge hypodermic needle, he recalls his bout of pneumonia. The buildup to the doctor's slapping him on the back and using the needle to pull the pneumonia from his lungs is perfect--listeners will find themselves breathless. The warm description of excited children seeing their stockings, each filled with an orange, a peppermint stick, and one penny for each year of the child's age, is ideal for today's kids.
