Dragon Tales

Feliz Cumpleanos, Enrique/On Thin Ice

Season 3, Episode 13 of 29

FELIZ CUMPLEANOS, ENRIQUE Max, Emmy, and their dragon friends throw Enrique a surprise birthday party. He's thrilled, but he can't help but feel sad, missing his friends and the traditions that are part of birthday celebrations in Colombia. The gang tries to cheer him up, but his sadness keeps brimming to the surface. After a talk with Quetzal, Enrique learns that sometimes you need to have a good cry to let the sadness out. Enrique takes Quetzal's advice and then rejoins the party ready to celebrate. EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: Coping with sadness ON THIN ICE It's Willie the Snow Seal's birthday, and there's going to be a big party . It's a good thing that Emmy and Max brought their skates, because Willy lives in a huge icy cave next to a frozen pond. Zak and Wheezie are excited about the party, too, except for one thing-they don't know how to ice skate! Their friends are happy to help them learn. Although Wheezie is eager to get started, Zak isn't so sure. On their first attempt, they immediately fall on the ice. Emmy explains that they need to lace their skates tighter so their feet aren't so wobbly. Much better! But after a few steps, down they go! The gang advises them to hold onto the branches at first and then try holding their arms out to the side to help keep their balance. Emmy shows them the best way to fall - a very important safety tip. As they practice, they improve, and are finally confident enough (even Zak!) to skate into Willie's cave for the surprise celebration. EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: Persevering while learning to ice skate
