Listen to the Lights
Spring is coming and the Willowbee children are filled with excitement and energy. Unfortunately for their mother, this excitement is expressed with very loud voices. She encourages them to use their 'inside voices', but only after the willow tree takes them to the far north — and a Moose shows them how to listen to the magical 'northern lights' — do the children understand how to be both excited and quiet.
