3: Friday was a special day. It was Show and Tell day at preschool! Ray was looking forward to bringing his Komodo Dragon to show to his friends and teachers. But there was a problem. When Ray woke up in the morning, he couldn't find his Komodo Dragon anywhere.
4: First, Ray looked in his room.
5: Then, Ray looked in his toy box.

7: Ray looked in the tub.
8: Ray even asked Laura if she had seen it!
9: Mommy said it was time to go to preschool, but Ray still hadn't found his Komodo Dragon! Mommy said "Ray, do you want to take a different toy instead?"
10: You could take your big shark!
11: Or your fire truck?
12: Maybe your Parasaurolophus?
13: Do you want to take a special book?
14: How about your wolf?
15: Or you could take your yellow dump truck!
16: I've got it - take Diesel!
17: Ray didn't want to take any of those toys to preschool. He just wanted his Komodo Dragon. But it was time to go, so he got his coat on and climbed into his carseat.
18: When Mommy and Ray got to preschool, they walked down the hallway to put Ray's coat and backpack in his locker.
20: When Ray opened the door he was very surprised and happy! His Komodo Dragon was on the top shelf. It had been there all along. He said goodbye to Mommy and took it into the classroom to show his friends!
