Home Spun comic strip #148
I have completely forgotten the words to Dinosaur Roar!
The very first storytime the children did, Chase begged to read a story. He was five. I was doubtful. He was barely reading, and I hardly heard him speak above a mumble. He was insistent. I discussed it with my daughter and her two friends, who had practiced hard for this first ever story time. We decided to let the girls read one book each, then let my son read before they did their second selection.
Each girl quietly read their first book. I stood at the edge of the circle and mouthed the word "Louder!" but their nerves had the best of them. Then Chase took the storytelling seat. From his first ROAR! something incredible happened. The children relaxed and started to enjoy themselves. All the girls raised their voices for their second books. They all found their Inner Dinosaur.
