764. Silent Statue: a calming kids’ story

Betty Bunny is pretty curious when a new Bunny arrives at her house and it doesn’t hop around.

Narrator: Male

Story Begins: 5:12

Silent Statue Excerpt:

On a quiet day in the little house where Betty Bunny lived, the sunbeams slanted through the windows, painting warm, golden patches on the floor. Betty Bunny was having a perfectly lazy afternoon, basking in the sunlight and absorbing its rays with her fluffy tan and white fur.

Before this tranquil moment, she had been quite busy. Betty had hopped around the living room, her long ears flopping playfully, and nibbled on her favorite carrot greens until her tummy was content. But now, it was time to relax.

With a big yawn, Betty settled into the coziest sunbeam she could find. She stretched out her back legs, her bunny toes wiggling with delight. The sunlight made her fur glisten, and Betty felt like a little queen of her domain.
