DASHER How a Brave Little Doe Changed Christmas Forever

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Laural Merlington

Children Ages 4-6 • 13 mins. • Unabridged • © 2019

Enchanting. Laurel Merlington transports listeners to a time they might not remember--the time before Santa Claus had his "eight tiny reindeer" to guide his sleigh each Christmas Eve. Enter a storytelling doe and her curious fawn, Dasher, who delights in the stories of a long-ago home under the North Star, where the cold and white snow blanketed the land. Dasher wonders whether she'll ever see this land, how the deer family will escape the hardships of Finnegan's Traveling Circus and Menagerie, and how he will help Santa and Silverbell. Merlington speaks in ethereal and mysterious tones that welcome the magic of this story. She brings kindness to Mama Deer and a warm, mellow richness to Santa Claus. Dasher is childlike and full of wonder as her journey unfolds. What a delight it is when a story, its narration, and its musical score all meld into a seamless production. A.R.
