Fri, Aug 5 12:30 P.M. NHPBS KIDS      

I am Mary Shelley Xavier and the gang are excited for a Nature Troop campout, where Xavier has volunteered to tell the first campfire story. There's just one problem: everyone is expecting a spooky story, but Xavier only knows how to tell silly stories. What's he going to do? He doesn't want to disappoint everyone. To the Secret Museum! Our heroes are sent back in time to meet an expert spooky storyteller: Mary Shelley. Mary takes our trio on an imaginative playdate where she spins the leaves and wind into a very spooky tale, which Xavier can't help but turn funny. Is all hope lost?? Mary helps Xavier see that he can tell a story that's both spooky AND silly. The most important thing is to tell stories your own way. Curriculum: "Tell stories you own way." I am Harry Houdini The time has come from Brad to spend his very first night in the museum, and he couldn't be more excited. Except, when the lights go out, Brad realizes it's kind of... gulp... scary there at night. Too afraid to stay put in his sleeping bag, there's only one thing left to do... to the Secret Museum! Our heroes travel back in time to meet someone who knew how to face a scary situation: Harry Houdini. Harry wants nothing more than to be a brave performer, just like his hero, tightrope walker Fearless Jean. But, it turns out tightrope walking is scarier than he thought! Good thing Harry has a trick to help himself, and Brad, make it through to the end: when you're scared, take a deep breath to calm down and feel better. Curriculum: "When you're scared, you can take a deep breath to calm down and feel better."
