333. Bridge Building: a meditation and story for kids
The construction crew is back for their second day of bridge building and they have another new friend to help them. Who is the newest member?
Hello everyone! We hope you enjoyed our new story this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Bridge Building” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!
Story Begins: 9:12
Bridge Building Excerpt:
Ronald the roller heard the sound of rain pitter pattering on his roof. The steam roller hoped that today he would join the construction crew at the bridge site. Ronald’s garage door rolled up and he rolled out to wait for the contractor with the other vehicles. Danny and Dory laughed as they splashed each other wiping the rain from their windshields. Ronald rolled up next to Dizzy the concrete mixer. She was already spinning. “Good morning Ronald! Are you coming with us today? I hope so, I’m having so much fun making this bridge I can’t wait for you to help out too.”
Ronald replied, “I hope so too. I’d really like to help.”
Ellie the excavator smiled at Ronald and said, “It must be difficult to wait.”
Connor the crane added, “Don’t worry Ronald. I’m sure you’ll be joining us soon. Even if it’s not today.”
