Description

In this programme, na Dódaí explore feelings of happiness and sadness – Nóra uses music and story to help explain different emotions to Naoise. We visit Scoil Éadáin Mhóir in Derry, where we see a lot of happy children playing at break time. Like the children in Derry, Na Dódaí play hopscotch together – but teddy is in a bad mood and won’t play. Naoise cheers him up with a hug and Na Dódaí say a poem about being happy as they play.
