Children Ages 4-6 • 7 mins. • Unabridged • © 2013

Toe-tapping music opens this production, followed by narrator Jesse Bernstein bellowing, "HEAD LICE!" The music and sound effects provide a dramatic backdrop as the young hero explains much about lice--where they come from and how to treat them. Bernstein is animated--his voice anguished at his initial realization of his condition, Dracula-like when he mentions that lice suck blood, reassuring and even factual when he shares the meanings of lice-related words such as "lousy" and "nit-picking." His use of emphasis works well to capture the emotional component of the lice episode--especially the reactions of the hero's mother and the other kids at school. Young listeners will appreciate both the humor and the factual information about this common childhood experience. A.R. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2015]
