Narrator 1: Little Blue Penguin By: Sharon Fear

Narrator 2: It is evening on the bay. The sun sits low on the horizon. Riding on a wave is a little bird.

Doug: Hey, Sal! What are you doing?

Narrator 1: Sal waddles over to Doug.

Sal: I'm waiting to surf on these waves! Come over so we can chat!

Narrator 2: Doug waddles over to Sal

Sound Effects: Waddle, Waddle, Quack, Quack!

Narrator 1: Meanwhile, Joy and Jasmine are watching their penguin nests. They wave their flippers in greeting.

Joy: Hey, what's up Jasmine!

Jasmine: Not much. . ..I just seem to have this cold.

Sound Effects: Ahh. . ..Ahhhh. . .Ahhhh! CHOOO!

Everyone: Ewww!

Narrator 2: Most penguins are black and white but not these guys. They are little and blue.

Sound Effects: (Sing It!) Blue, Blue, Blue. . .. . .

Joy: Boy you do look sick Jasmine. Your blue looks faded and you look smaller than yesterday.

Joy: You didn't try to swim or fly did you?

Doug: You know that we are penguins but we can't do that.

Sal: We use our wings as flippers to help us swim.

Sound Effects: Gurrgle. . .gurgle. . .swim. . .. Swim. . .. . .

Joy: Hey, I know maybe you have eaten some bad krill. Maybe that's why you're sick.

Jasmine: I don't think so. I think I need to move to Florida where it is warm.

Sound Effects: FLORIDA! Are you crazy! Cookooo, coookooo. . ...

Narrator 1: What Jasmine doesn't know is that Antarctica could have never made her sick.

Narrator 2: That's right, penguins love the South Pole! They love to play on slippery ice slides.

Narrator 1: She would be miserable in Florida!

Doug: Here, I have just the thing for your cold. Try this it always helps me when I'm sick.

Jasmine: A rotten tuna fish!!!!???? How is this supposed to help me get better?

Sound Effects: haaaa. . .. . .haaaaaa. Haaaaaaa. Chhoooooo!

Joy: Just trust him. It worked for me!

Narrator 1: Jasmine looked at the rotten stinky fish and tried to keep her lunch down.

Jasmine: I don't know, this looks and smells really gross. . .. . ..

Narrator 2: Jasmine grabs the fish, pinches her nose. . .. . ...and. . .. . .. . .
