I will never forget the first time I did this story in Story Time. As this story is longer than the others, I wanted to test how long it would keep the children's attention. To my surprise, they sat and listened for the whole length of the story and remembered many of the scenes. They enjoyed the sounds of the farm animals and clapped along with Jimi's song. But the funniest thing happened! As soon as the fire scene kicked in, they all started screaming!!! I wasn't prepared for this at all and I didn't actually know what to do! The manager came in to see what was going on. I was thinking, Oh no, she's going to tell me off. But instead she started to laugh! The children absolutely love this story and their reactions to it are priceless.
