Today’s cardboard box adventure sends Chance and the kids time traveling ahead for future fun.

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 “Future Fun,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Narrator: Female

Story Begins: 10:58

Future Fun Excerpt:

Sunlight spilled into the room filling Chance the cardboard box with light and warming the belly of the little kitty napping inside. The kitty sat up and listened intently. Chance wondered what the kitty had found so fascinating. Then the kitty gracefully leapt out of the box and scampered down the hall.

Chance smiled. The kitty always knew when it was time for another adventure.

As if on cue, he heard the girl ask, “Where should we go today? It’s your turn to choose.”

The boy smiled mischievously, “What do you think about going to the future this time?”

His sister asked, “Can we do that?”
