Who is the story about? Spunky the Skunk
Description Spunky is a skunk who is very excited about a race taking place for field day.
Who else is in the story? Myrtle Turtle, Rufus Kangaroo and Casey Cat.
Where are they? On field day, Spunky and his friends are getting ready for their favorite events.
What are they doing? Spunky is running everywhere and not caring about his friends or how they feel as they also prepare themselves for field day.
Why are they doing that? Spunky forgets in his excitement that he isn't the only one who has feelings. His friends have all worked equally hard for their special events and don't like being treated badly by Spunky. They start to feel hurt by his actions and avoid him.
What happens to everyone? Spunky wins the race, but finds none of his friends want to cheer for him because of how they were treated. Spunky begins to see how his actions caused his friends to feel bad and then apologizes for being so mean.
What's your favorite part of the story? My son has experienced something similar to this and he helped to build the storyline that told how hurtful it can be when friends are inconsiderate. Expressing his thoughts and feelings helped him to deal with the situation and understand how sometimes people act in ways without thinking.
What would you build out of LEGO® DUPLO® blocks to bring your story to life? We would create a race track with Spunky, Rufus, Myrtle and Casey at the finish line together.
