677. Lost and Found: a relaxation & calming story

Anora takes her stuffed toy bunny Blanka on a hike…and Blanka has an unexpected adventure!

Narrator: Male

Story Begins: 4:58

Lost and Found Excerpt:

A bright beam of morning sunlight crept through a gap in the curtains of Anora’s bedroom. As the cheery sunbeam peeked around the fabric of the curtains, light fell on the little bed, warming both Anora and her stuffed toy bunny, Blanka. The little toy woke up right away, but it took a few minutes before the sunbeam’s brightness began to wake up the little girl. But finally, Anora started to wake up. She yawned (yawn).

Blanka smiled to herself. She knew that it was difficult to get Anora out of bed sometimes. Anora was always so active all day long that she slept very deeply.

But eventually, Anora stretched, slowly coming fully awake. And suddenly, the little girl’s eyes popped open. She was wide awake now and had remembered what today was.
