RABBIT EARS TREASURY OF HEROINES Annie Oakley, Song of Sacajawea, Finn McCoul, Princess Scargo and the Birthday Pumpkin

by | Read by Keith Carradine, Laura Dern, Catherine O'Hara, Geena Davis

Children Ages 6+ • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1996

This reissued collection contains tales of two legendary women, Oonagh McCoul of Ireland and Princess Scargo of Cape Cod, and two historical figures, Annie Oakley and Sacajawea. Four accomplished narrators, whose styles range from measured to sprightly, use engaging but unobtrusive regional accents where appropriate. Original music in the style of the period or culture accompanies each story. Unfortunately "Princess Scargo..." is marred by repeated use of the derogatory term "squaw." The box notes vaguely suggest historical context for "Annie Oakley" and "The Song of Sacajawea," but there is very little in the actual material to help a child distinguish historical from legendary figures.
