Brianna, Helen, and Rogelio excitedly brainstorm their ideas for a play. With all the creativity, it’s like an imagination soup!

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Dragon Fire” on Monday. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Imagination Soup,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 10:45

Narrator: Female

Doctor Mia Excerpt:

Rogelio, Helen, and Brianna played tag for a while.  Each of them had a chance to be “it.”  Then they decided to have a drink of water and rest for a little bit.  As they rested, they chatted.  Helen and Brianna learned about Rogelio, and Rogelio learned about Helen and Brianna.  One of the things they learned about each other is that they all enjoyed being part of a play.  So they decided to put on a play.  First they needed to figure out what their play would be about.  Helen loved being outside so she thought the story should be about the forest, and the forest animals.  Brianna loved things that sparkled and shined, so she though the play should be about finding a precious jewel.  Rogelio liked imagining new and fantastic worlds so he wanted a play about a dragon.  The trio talked, each one explaining why their idea was the best.
