The Dragon Rock ๐Ÿฒ written by Ellena Ashley

Written by Ellena Ashley and narrated by Amy Hays

๐Ÿ‰ Once Upon A Time, there was a town that had, in its best-loved spot, a large, long, scaly rock that looked amazingly similar to a sleeping dragon. Along with this dragon-shaped rock came a tale: โ€˜In times of trouble, the dragon will wake, and free the village, by making a lakeโ€™.

Well, trouble did come to that town, in the form of one very, very hot and dry summer. The townsfolk were desperate for rain, but it just did not come.

Would the tale about the dragon prove to be true?ย 

Would it wake and save them from this drought, or was it just a made-up story? Listen to this exciting short story by Ellena Ashley to find out!๐Ÿ‰

Written and narrated by Nicole Esquino

Sarah is a Scientist in Training asking questions weโ€™ve all been curious about. She performs experiments that will make you giggle and want to dash off to your own science laboratory.ย 

Are you ready to experiment with glitter and germs? ๐Ÿ”ฌโœจ

This story is recommended for children ages 5+

Glitter Germs: Hand Washing Experiment

The use of plastic based glitter may have a bad effect on the environment. It's advised to find a biodegradable alternative or to use a fine couscous dyed with bright colours. Using wet hands and dirt is an okay alternative but you'll have to sprinkle on the dirt on rather than have them look like they just came out of a swamp.

Objective

Kids learn the importance of washing their hands with a concrete example.

Tools Needed

    GlitterHand LotionBowlPaper Towel

Procedure

    Ask your kids: Why do we need to wash our hands? What are germs? When should we wash our hands?Apply a small amount of lotion to each childโ€™s hands.Sprinkle glitter onto each childโ€™s hand over a bowl to catch excess glitter.First, give each child a dry paper towel to try to clean one hand. Discuss their observations of how effective the dry paper towel is.Then, have each child wash both hands with cold water. Discuss their observations of how effective the cold water is.Next, have each child wash both hands using soap and warm water. Discuss their observations of how effective the soap and warm water is.Last, discuss why is it important to wash our hands? Ask kids to give several examples of when they should wash hands. (ex.

Brad doesn't believe in Father Christmas, and he doesn't want anyone else to believe that nonsense either. He's happiest when he's making everyone else miserable. His parents aren't bothered about Christmas either, so on Christmas Eve there's no decorations in the house, no tree downstairs, no stocking hung up. But, whether Brad believes it or not, soon he'll have to decide whether to stay being Bad Brad, or whether he'll get on his bike and save Christmas. Is it worth the effort for one person? For sure! And is it better to fix badness with kindness? For sure!ย 

This story is suitable for children aged between 4 - 10.Bad Brad and Joeโ€™s other books are available to download for free here.
