606: Hat Adventure: a relaxation and story for your nap time routine

When Britney and Alma Raincoat walk to Grammy’s house in the rain and wind, Halima Hat has an adventure of her own.

Narrator: Male

Hat Adventure Excerpt:

Halima Hat nestled cozily in her spot on her favorite shelf. The little yellow rain hat lived with her little girl, Britney, and usually stayed in Britney’s bedroom when she wasn’t being worn on Britney’s head. Britney was generally supposed to put Halima away in the bedroom closet, but sometimes she was in a hurry and put Halima in the drawer full of gloves or hung Britney on the hook on the back of the bedroom door. One time, Britney put Halima away in the hall closet with Alma Raincoat and the winter coats. That had been an interesting day for the little rain hat, and she had enjoyed chatting with Alma. But usually, Halima was happy to stay in her cozy top shelf in Britney’s bedroom closet, and that’s where she was today.

The top shelf was Halima’s favorite place because she could look down and see everything below her, and because it kept her near the roof of the house. Being near the roof helped Halima hear if it was raining outside. And if it was raining, Halima knew there was a chance that she could go outside and help protect Britney’s hair from wind and rain.

Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating on a cloud, and relax into the feeling of lightness.
