Junkyard Tales Audio Advent Calendar Printable Coloring Page: Day 19 - Mr. Flinch

The Junkyard Tales Audio Advent Calendar Day 19. It is a cold night in the Junkyard and all the animals gather in the House of Chairs for some warm tea and a story from Mr. Flinch. He tells them a story that he heard when he was a little joey — one that his mother told him every Christmas — and it shows the value of dedication and service to those who need it.

In Mr. Flinch’s story, we learn that the possums’ action transforms the King by giving him the gift of Dedication to those in need. Who can you help in your community? Family? Friends? Neighbors? What would it look like if you drew yourself and your community as animals?

About Junkyard Tales Audio Advent Calendar

This Christmas the Junkyard Warden has a challenge he doesn't know how to face - something that could change the Junkyard for good. Sergeant, the steadfast Junkyard watchdog alerts the other animals, and they immediately take it up. “We take care of each other,” they say, “Even though the Warden doesn’t know about us - he still needs our help.” All 25 stories in this Audio Calendar are about how a community faces a difficult situation. By including everyone with their strengths and quirks, they not only solve what faces them, but they get closer in the process. These stories are funny and delightful, and they demonstrate courage, authenticity, compassion, empathy and most of all - service.
