when dragon shrank

Dragon and Red Squirrel were good friends. They visited each other often. Dragon enjoyed gazing through the windows of Squirrel’s tree house at rooms far too little for him. He would say, “Squirrel, how I wish I could relax in your squooshy armchair.” Squirrel delighted in scampering through Dragon’s cave, exploring rooms far too big for him. He would say, “Dragon, how I wish I could reach the table when I sit in your carved Viking chair.” One morning, Dragon had an idea. Away he flapped to the wizard’s cottage. “Sir Wizard, may I please ask a favor? I long to lounge in Squirrel’s amazing armchair. Will you shrink me for an hour?” “Well, just this once,” said the wizard. Waving his wand, he chanted, “Dragon, Dragon, change your size. See the world through tiny…

a sweet spring strawberry day

We go strawberry picking every June, just Mom and Emmy and me. “Bye-bye!” Emmy waves as we leave the city behind. I watch out my window for the blue-green mountains. “We’re almost there!” At the strawberry patch, we each get our own box to fill. “Only pick the ripe red ones,” Mom reminds us. “Not the white ones or the pink ones.” Emmy grabs my hand. “Look!” she shouts. “Berry!” Water droplets shine on bright berries. Bees buzz on the white blossoms. I tug my first strawberry free— snap! It takes a long time to fill our boxes. I’m carrying mine to the table when— oof! Emmy stumbles and her box tumbles. Strawberries fly EVERYWHERE! I help Emmy up and wipe away her tears. We clean up her strawberries, together. When our boxes are full again, a woman…

the secret airport

Jacob sat on the grass outside Nana’s house. He held a piece of paper. He folded the paper this way and made a point, then he folded it that way and this way and made wings. Jacob threw his paper airplane high into the air. It twisted. It turned. It fell to the ground. Nana looked up from her gardening as Jacob folded another piece of paper. He threw the new plane into the air. It went up . . . then it came down and bounced off the ground, its point bent like a hook. “You know,” said Nana, “there’s a secret airport just through those trees. Want to see?” “An airport!” Jacob jumped up. “Near your house?” Jacob took Nana’s hand, and they followed a path through the trees. They stopped…

fantastic fliers

What You’ll Need : paper What to Do: 1. With a grownup, fold the paper in half the long way. Crease the paper down the middle and then open it again. 2. Fold the top corners down to the crease in the center, making an arrow shape. 3. Fold the top of the arrow down. 4. Fold the top corners down to the center again. This time, don’t make a perfect arrow shape. A little bit of the top should look flat, not pointed, after you fold the paper. 5. You will see a little triangle in the middle of your flier. Fold it up. 6. Turn the flier over. 7. Lift up the right half of the flier, and fold it over the left half. 8. Fold down the sides to make wings. Now it’s time to fly!…

high fliers

What You’ll Need: scissors string What to Do: 1. With a grownup, cut out all the pieces of the mobile on the gray dotted lines. 2. Fold the cloud in half on the blue dotted line. 3. Punch a hole in each black dot. (You might place the pieces on a towel and poke them with a sharp pencil.) The holes in the cloud should go through both sides. 4. To balance the mobile, cut strings of the same length for the two planes. Use a longer string for the red-and-white blimp, and hang ● it in the middle. Thread the strings through the holes in the aircraft and tie them. 5. Now thread the other ends of the strings through the holes ● ● in the cloud and tie them. Thread another string through the hole…
