Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 9:01

Narrator: Male

The Enchanting Woods Excerpt:

“Now what do we do?” Rogelio asked.

“We should set up the campfire.  Would you help me carry the wood we got at the ranger’s station?” his dad asked.  Rogelio replied “OK.” as he helped his dad carry the firewood from the fire to the campsite.

Once Rogelio and his dad had carried the firewood to the campsite, his mom and dad started arranging it.  Now, Rogelio decided, it would be a good time to use his tablet.  He opened his bag, and pulled the tablet out.  Rogelio pressed the button.  It was still dark.  Rogelio pushed the button again and it flickered to life… just long enough to tell him that it needed to be recharged.  He had forgotten to charge it, and there was nowhere to plug it in out in the woods.
