After a little nap Dragon discovers a simple smile can brighten up anyone’s day. Before long all of Ahway Island is smiling.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:44

Narrator: Female

All Smiles Excerpt:

Dragon wondered whether smiling at others always worked that way and decided to try the theory out. Dragon landed on the forest floor. Carrie Cardinal rested in a nearby bush. The bright red bird looked over at Dragon just in time to see Dragon smile at her. Carrie grinned in response. Encouraged by the second smile Dragon began to walk further down the path to share a smile with another animal. Before long Dragon found Odin the owl. Though the owl was sleeping, at the sound of rustling leaves Odin opened his eyes. Dragon smiled at the drowsy owl. Odin returned the grin and drifted back to sleep. Now Dragon felt certain that the birds would respond with a smile. Next Dragon would see if other animals would respond the same way.
