Use the following format:
Lynn: (flapping wings and saying “who who”) “Helloooooo Robbie, I’m an owl. Thank you for being kind to all living things!”
Robbie: “You’re welcome Lynn (turning to Maggie and walking like a penguin). Hello Maggie, I’m a penguin Thank you for being kind to all living things!”
