Where to Listen



>> RACHEL: Good morning! It’s time for Chompers! Your morning and night toothbrushing show!

It’s Senses Week and today we have a story. Our story is about Sherlock the dog. And Because he’s a dog he has a very good sense of smell.

Before we start, pick a side on the top of your mouth, and start brushing in small circles all the way around each tooth. 

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1, BRUSH!


>> RACHEL: It was a lovely day in the magical land of Animalville…


>> RACHEL: -and Sherlock the dog was out on a walk and suddenly he smelled something delicious. 


>> RACHEL: It smelled like … warm soup on a snowy day! and Snuggling up with his favorite human! And like a tasty treat after a long hike.  Sherlock followed his nose, sniffing through the grass, behind a tree, and into a yard.  And there he found a WONDERFUL BONE. 


Switch to the other side of the top of your mouth…


>> RACHEL: -and don’t forget those front teeth. 

Sherlock sat down to enjoy the wonderful bone.

>> SHERLOCK: Oh boy! 

>> RACHEL: But then he smelled something else -- something MUCH LESS DELICIOUS.  A group of HYENAS had appeared. And they looked like a bunch of bullies.


>> BIG MEAN HYENA: Hey you, what you have there.

>> SHERLOCK: This is my bone! I found it.

>> TINY MEAN HYENA: Hand it over or we’ll TAKE IT!

>> RACHEL: Sherlock didn’t know what to do.  He wanted to keep his bone but he was outnumbered!

Time to switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth. 


>> RACHEL: And give your tongue a brush too.

Sherlock’s ears drooped. 


>> RACHEL: He put his tail between his legs. 


>> RACHEL: And he gave the bully dogs his bone.  The bullies ran off howling with laughter. 


>> RACHEL: But just as Sherlock was feeling SO SAD…


>> RACHEL: -his friends Fanzy the Elephant…


>> RACHEL: -and Carmen the Eagle arrived. 


>> RACHEL: Right away, Fanzy noticed something was wrong:

>> FANZY: Oh no, what happened Sherlock?

>> SHERLOCK: This morning, I found the most wonderful bone. But then these bullies took it away from me!


>> RACHEL: Switch your brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth … but don’t brush TOO hard.

Fanzy and Carmen looked at each other -- Suddenly, Carmen knew what to do!

>> CARMEN: If we find those bad dogs, we find your bone!

>> SHERLOCK: Yes, but how?

>> FANZY: Sherlock, you have the best possible team on your side. You’ve got me -  an elephant, who can sense vibrations from miles around with his feet. 

>> CARMEN: And you’ve got me - an eagle, who can see the smallest thing from the highest place in the sky. We’ll track those dogs and find your bone!


>> RACHEL: Come back tonight when Sherlock the dog, Fanzy the elephant and Carmen the eagle find Sherlock’s bone. Until then…

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 Spit!
