THE LITTLE RED LIGHTHOUSE AND THE GREAT GRAY BRIDGE

by | Read by David de Vries

Children Ages 4-6 • 10 min. • Unabridged • © 1942

For years the little red lighthouse has been mistress of the waters at the mouth of the Hudson River. Vessels of all sizes, from small canoes to large ships, have had kind words as they passed. The keeper has tended the light with great care. But when the bustle of bridge construction gives the lighthouse consternation, she loses her belief in her importance. Then one dark and foggy night all this changes. David de Vries is an enthusiastic narrator. His characterization of the lighthouse is highly animated, and his "flash, flash, flash" transports listeners into the scene. Sound effects and the musical score heighten the storm and provide background for the dramatic finale. Best of all, we can go see the bridge and the lighthouse still!
