Dorktales Podcast: Episode 26

The Great Acorn Incident

When an acorn strikes a blow onto Henny Penny’s head, she mistakenly fears the worst – that the whole sky is falling! As she waddles off to warn the farmyard, her fine-feathered friends join in the cautioning crusade. Will Henny ultimately lead them afoul? Or will her heightened sense for true danger save her bird buddies from a fiendish fox?

PARENTS, TEACHERS AND HOMESCHOOLERS: This episode talks about anxiety, the feelings that can lead to worry, uncertainty and fear. The story also defines the kind of “good worry” where trusting your instincts keeps you safe from dangerous situations.
