Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 11:27

Narrator: Female

Laughter in the Sun Story Excerpt:

The twisty slide was happy to see the children.  They ran right to Sara, and climbed right up to the top of the slide.  They giggled as they slid down the slide, one at a time.  When both children reached the bottom, they climbed up to the top of the slide again.  Sara was so happy to have the children playing around her.
After the third time sliding down the twists and turns, the children ran over to Savannah Swing set.  Savannah was just as excited as Sara to see the children, and was happy that, now, they were swinging with her.

The swings zipped back and forth, higher and higher.  As the twisty slide watched the children play with the swing set, she felt a little sad.  Sara wanted more time to play with the children.  She sighed and took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath). The twisty slide realized that she was happy for her friend Savannah.  The swing set enjoyed playing with the children too.  After breathing and thinking, Sara the twisty slide was sure that the children would come back and play with her again.  She just needed to wait.
