Dancing Shoes


A young dancer was getting ready for her first time dancing in a show.  She lost her shoe. She couldn’t dance without it. She looked everywhere in the cupboards in her room. She looked behind the trees and under the rivers.  When she dances, she can fly, and things grow.

She tried to dance with one shoe, but it didn’t work so everything stopped growing. 

There were no flowers, apple trees, or even food for insects and no food for us! ‘Someone must have taken the shoe,’ she said. 

She asked the animals to look for the shoe. One bird, a hawk found the shoe, he was given a block of magic gold. The gold builds anything you ask it to. 

The dancer started to dance, and everything grew again.
