Let’s play as Danny and Dory, the dump trucks, race to see who is the fastest. Ellie the excavator gives the signal and they’re off!

Let’s Play Story Excerpt:

Dory grinned at Danny. “Do you want to race to see who can move the rocks faster?”

“Great idea!” Danny said. He was up for a challenge. Both dump trucks were sure that they would win the race.

Ellie smiled and said. “Alright then, go line up by the gravel pile. I’ll count down, so you know when to start.”

“OK!” Danny and Dory said together, and they rolled over to the pile, ready for Ellie to start filling their beds. Why don’t you two take some deep dragon breaths while load you up.

“That’s a great idea.” Dory said.

The dump trucks took a deep breath, in and out (deep breath). Ellie rumbled up to the pile of gravel and scooped up the little rocks. Danny and Dory took another deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath). Ellie positioned her scoop over Dory’s bed. Rocks flowed into her bed rolling like thunder. The two dump trucks took one more, deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath). Ellie rolled over to Danny. A soothing rumble filled the air, as the little rocks cascaded into Danny’s bed.

Before long both dump trucks were full. Danny and Dory rumbled, eagerly waiting for Ellie to signal the start of their race.

“OK,” Ellie said, “Ready? Set? Go!”
