Going Down Home with Daddy
The audiobook version of Going Down Home with Daddy, written by Kelly Starling Lyons and illustrated by Daniel Minter, underscores the importance of family and the traditions they keep. From the happy humming of packing the car to drive to Granny’s, to the preparations for the multi-generational reunion, the church service, and the individual commemorations of the celebration itself, listeners are treated to a story of hard work, dreams, ingenuity and love.
Daxton Edwards’ narration is soft, kind, and genuine; the minimal sound effects are well done and well placed. It’s like sitting on a porch listening to an affectionately told story.
