A Sparkly HolidayLibby & Dish's Good-Deed-A-Day Club
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. Join Libby and Dish with this festive audio advent calendar!Listen Now
