SOAP! SOAP! DON'T FORGET THE SOAP!

by | Read by Tom Stechschulte

Children Ages 4-8 • 15 min. • Unabridged • © 1993

Birdseye's retelling of this Appalachian folktale centers upon a young boy's quest to remember to buy soap and the ridiculous events associated with fulfilling the assignment. Stechschulte's narration sounds pleasingly smooth and American, like a media broadcaster's. He switches into stereotypical Appalachian accents, with a slight nasal twang and controlled delivery, as he gives each character's part vocal intonation. As Plu, the boy hero of the tale, Stechschulte adds just the right mix of innocence and ignorance. Keeping the accents from becoming outlandish or overdramatized, Stechschulte remains clearly understandable, presenting no listening difficulty even for the youngest listener.
