Episode 23: The Ooga Boogas


Click here to listen to: The Ooga Boogas

Hi All,
Our newest story is called “The Ooga Boogas.”  This story has been in the works since our son was two years old when one of his many admirers brought him some new toys. It was a set of three dinosaur figures and on them sat three cavemen.  When you pressed on the cavemen, the dinosaurs roared. Since the cavemen did not make any noise, Mr. Chris improvised. He gave them a voice and started calling them the Ooga Boogas. Oh the adventures they would have! Our son would laugh so hard whenever he did the voice. To this day he’ll come out of his room and say “Do you want to play Ooga Boogas with me? Recently, we took one of the many adventures they had and put it into this story.  We hope you enjoy it!
