I imagined all this told to the children in Peter Cullen’s voice. For bonus marks!
subadventures:

I’m a substitute teacher and a Transformers fan. Today I substituted for a kindergarten class. The instructions said to read ‘Wheels on the Bus,’ but the kids wailed angrily because they’d read it yesterday. So instead I told them the story of the War for Cybertron, based on Transformers Exodus.
“Once upon a time, on the planet Cybertron, there lived a librarian…”
I’ve had to resort to this story before, and they always get a kick out of it when I tell them Optimus Prime worked in a library. I also tell them Megatron was a wrestler, since I can’t tell them he was a gladiator. But whenever I tell the story, the biggest surprise to them is that Optimus and Megatron used to be friends.
Moving on, something astounded me when I got to the part where Optimus and Megatron approached the ‘Cybertron government’ about the fact that they wanted to choose their own jobs. A little girl raised her hand and asked, “What’s the government?”
I was like, “Whoa, pause story time. The government?”
“Yeah! What is it?” she asked.
“Well… it’s the people who make the rules for a country.”
“Rules that keep us safe?”
“Yes, like keeping everyone driving on the same side of the road.”
“And no hitting?”
“Yes. That’s not allowed.”
“So what did Optimus do next?” a boy asked.
“And what was Bumblebee’s job?” asked another.
The story of the war continued, and we had the best Story Time ever.
