Libby & Dish's Good-Deed-a-Day Club!
Just like with all of our "Audio Advent Calendars", this collection offers a story-a-day for you to enjoy all the way from December 1 to December 25.
However this audio calendar is a bit different! We're calling it a "Holiday Calendar" as the children enjoy exploring holiday celebrations across cultures and faiths, all with the intent to "do some good" each day.

On the first day of December, Libby receives some holiday wisdom from her cat, Dish, and her neighbor’s dog, Chad. They teach her what comes to be known as the “dog trick,” or the powerfully positive effect of doing nice things for others. When Libby describes this to her friends, Morgan and Juan Paco, suddenly a new adventure is born: a Good-Deed-a-Day Club! They decide that for every day in December, they will do something nice for someone else. The result is not only pure holiday delight, but also a chance to learn about how others celebrate during this time of year.
Twenty-five stories for December 1 to 25.
You'll get to enjoy:
- a Christmas leaf boat parade in the park
- Bear's creative kitty Christmas carols
- lighting of the menorah with Mrs. Klein
- window shopping with Mr. Bhachu
- jumping over the solstice "fire" with the Socolovs
- an evening carriage ride with Granny and Gramps
- and of course so many Good-Deed-a-Day missions with her best friends Morgan, Juan Paco (and new friends Roman and Misty!)
- and more!

FAQ for Libby & Dish's Good-Deed-a-Day Club
Are the stories religious?
In this collection, we wanted to create a delightful exploration of December celebrations across religions and cultures.
These stories include references to not only Christmas but Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Winter solstice, as well as the many different ways that different cultures celebrate all of them. There is reference to Christ's birth in one story, and a reference to the 'rededicating of the temple' in the Hanukkah story, as well as a celebration of culture in the Kwanzaa story.
The primary focus of these stories is on helping others during a potentially busy, overwhelming and self-focused time of year.
How long are the stories?
The 25 stories are between 10 and 20 minutes each - totaling over six full hours of content.
Can we download these stories?
Yes! You can purchase the entire collection in the Sparkle Store!
Would you like more stories for the holiday season?
We have over 100 stories just for the December holidays! This includes five Audio Advent Calendars and multiple Christmas collections, plus stories for Hanukkah and Kwanza.
