My Hat - Jailia McCoy and Vinny Green
Josh stepped outside to begin a fun-filled day, surprised at how chilly and gusty it was to be the beginning of May. It seemed like the Bullying Nature sisters wanted to get in another bullying day, with school about to close and summer on the way.
Tenzin and Tsering Conquer the Covid Dragon
During a time, long ago, when Kingdoms thrived throughout the land, there existed a tiny but happy kingdom just outside of the land of Bod. It was a country so high in the mountains that it became known as the roof of the world.
This tiny kingdom that we are about to visit is known as Taymore. Some called it “Little-Bod.” Tsering and Tenzin Dhundup call it home. It is here where they have been called upon to defend the family honor and defeat the despicable Covid dragon wreaking havoc throughout the land..
You Don't Get To Bully Me!
“My name is J’Sean McCoy, and this is my story of standing up to bullies in my own unique way.” The day began like most any summer day, with the sun shining bright. The school was closed, and all of us were looking forward to a day of delight.
As the day moved by, with little warning, and to my dismay, Samantha Seahorse once again decided to sprinkle the day with her bullying ways. As I was sitting down to recline for my daily rock-a-bye nap, Samantha swam by, disturbing the flow of what I had hoped to be a peaceful day.
As she swam past, I could not help but reflect on our past and her bullying ways, day after day. I was unable to remember any day where Samantha was pleasant in any way. With her, it seemed to be a generational thing, bringing frowns to many of us around the deep blue sea. Bullies can never win..
The Porkie Yorkie
It was no secret in Yorkie-Ville that the Yorkie clan ruled when it came to keeping the ravenous wolves away from the rich and robust farmland. Yorkie-Ville is a blessed land inhabited by animals of all kinds. No humans live in Yorkie-Ville. The town is not designed for humankind.
It is not well known, but the Yorkie breed of dog was originally bred to hunt rats. Yes, that is what I said, RATS!
Rats are one of the few species not welcomed in Yorkie-Ville, mainly because they travel in menacing, unhealthy packs. To some, hunting rats may not seem to be a great job, but when first bred, the Yorky clan did it well. As time progressed, the Yorkies of Yorkie-Ville developed a new hunting plan. The Yorkies of today’s Yorkie-Ville stand tall and are more than ready to meet all challenges facing the inhabitants of Yorkie-Ville; taking on anyone with a plan to inflict harm on any of the inhabitants in Yorkie-Ville. These K9 sentinels are full of spunk and spirit, fearing none, and 11 happy to stand eye to eye to any being foolish enough to think they may best any Yorkie from Yorkie-Ville.

Lulu and the Swamp Mamba
Lulu was born in Dar es Salaam. Even as a toddler, she knew what she wanted to grow up to be. Whenever she was asked what that would be, Lulu would always leap into the air and announce with a great big cheer: “I want to grow up to be a Superhero. The first girl in Tanzania to grow up to be a protector of the people. How cool is that going to be?”
In English, the name Lulu means pearl. Because of that, Lulu’s family and friends always called her the Pearl of Dar, the Queen superhero to be.
