Grandma and the Ankole Bull (Younger Elementary School Readers)
Readers Theater Scripts
The bull's ear-shattering moo frightens the boy and keeps him awake at night. Grandma has a solution. She'll put the desert tortoise in bed with the boy so he "won't be alone and he won't be afraid." When this plan doesn't work, a warthog, spotted hyena, and camel are added to the mix. But it's the meerkat who finally solves the problem and allows everyone in the village to fall fast asleep.
