It’s a lovely day! After tying her shoes for the first time Anora goes with Alice to the enchanted forest to switch the old island sign with their brand new one to welcome visitors.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:04
Narrator: Female
Island Sign Story Excerpt:

Then Anora slipped the shoes onto her feet. As she concentrated on tying the laces she grew quiet. Next, Anora tugged her laces tightly and they slipped right back apart. She sighed and took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath). Now, feeling confident, Anora took the laces in her hands, again, and pictured each step. With that vision fresh in her mind Anora tried again. She tugged at the laces to tighten them. This time they stayed tight!

Anora moved on to her other shoe. Once more, she reminded herself that she knew how to tie her shoes. Anora took the laces in her hands and now both shoes were tied. In celebration, Anora hopped up and began to dance and sing. As a result, her dad peaked around the corner to see what the celebration was about. “I tied my shoes by myself!” Anora sang as she gave him a great big hug.
