Pup Games: a story and meditation for your bedtime routine

Cody coyote is eager to join his siblings in their pup games. What will they play today? Will Cody play his favorite game.

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new stories “Connor’s Conundrum” and “Snow Statues” this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Pup Games,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 11:03

Narrator: Male

Pup Games Excerpt:

The night sky twinkled with the light of stars, while a sliver of the moon smiled down on the earth.  In their cozy den the furry pile of coyote pups began to stir.  One after another, each little pup stretched and yawned. Cody woke with his brother’s outstretched paw touching his nose. The little pup batted Cade’s paw away and stretched too.  Soon all the coyote pups were wide awake and ready to play.  The pups bounced and rolled around the den until their mom encouraged them to go outside. Cody bounded outside the cave and howled hello to the moon.  His brothers and sisters followed him. Cody ran over to his brother Cade and the two bounced up, their paws meeting in the air.  Casey, Claire, and Clyde came running over to join them.

Snow Fun Excerpt:

Dragon swept a clear aisle with strong pushes from Dragon’s tail moving right and left of the cave’s entrance. As Dragon pushed the snow, it compacted together forming walls. Dragon smiled.

Dragon Adventure: a short story and meditation

Dragon Adventure: a short story and meditation

Ready for a Dragon adventure? Today Dragon follows the sparkling train to the beach and meets some new friends in the soft warm sand.

Welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Dragon Adventure,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:59

Narrator: Female

Dragon Adventure Story Excerpt:

Wondering if the train would come back, the dragon decided to relax on the beach and wait.    Landing on the soft warm sand, the dragon sighed happily.  This would be a wonderful spot to rest.  The dragon, tucking toes into the cozy sand, settled in.  In the meantime, the dragon listened to the waves crashing on the sand, and looked around at the peaceful beach.  There was something blue in the sand.  Puzzled, the dragon reached over and pulled it out.  It was a sand bucket, great for making castles.  The bucket smiled at the dragon and said, “Thanks! I thought I would be stuck there all night!  I’m Benji.  I haven’t seen you around before.”

Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating in a tranquil pool, safe and relaxed, as the water rocks you gently.

Best Babysitter: a mindful children’s story

Best Babysitter: a mindful children’s story

Tonight, James and Julia will have a babysitter. They hope the babysitter will follow their bedtime routine? Maybe they’ll even have a little fun.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:48

Narrator: Male

Best Babysitter Story Excerpt:

Fully absorbed in the suspense of his book it took a while for James to realize that his parents were acting a bit differently. Julia sat down next to him and asked. “Do you know what’s going on with mom and dad?” James looked up from his book and watched as their mom zipped from the kitchen, wrote a note on the counter, and then went back to the bedroom. Their dad ran into the laundry room and came out with a pair of socks.

“I don’t know. They seem like they’re in a hurry.” James said. Then he looked at Julia as they realized together, “They must be going out tonight!”

“Oh no!” James added as Julia said, “We must be getting a babysitter.”

“I don’t know why. I’m not a baby.” James said. He hopped off the couch and ran to see if he could convince their parents to change their minds. Julia followed right behind.

Today’s Meditation: Today, notice loving energy flowing through your body, from your feet up to your head.

A Cheerful Family: a mindful children’s tale

A Cheerful Family: a mindful children’s tale

Mia and Max are part of a cheerful family on a road trip to visit their grandparents. How will they pass the time in the car?

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Surprise Gift” on Monday. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “A Cheerful Family,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:05

Narrator: Male

A Cheerful Family Excerpt:

It would be a long drive, so Max tried to think of something to do.  “Why don’t we play the alphabet game?” he said.

“That sounds like fun!”  Mia replied.  And Max, Mia, their mom and dad, began looking for things that began with the letter A.  Mia found an airplane flying overhead, mom found an apple tree,  Max saw animals outside, and dad counted eight arms inside the car.  Once everyone had found something beginning with A, they went on to find something beginning with B.

Mom was first this time.  She found a bright red barn.  Mia proudly spotted a bicycle.  Dad saw a boat, as they crossed a long bridge over the water, and Max was excited when he saw a buffalo. Now it was time to find C things.  Dad quickly spotted cows in a field.  Max found a camp.  Mom pointed out all the cars on the road, and Mia managed to spot a cat sitting in the grassy field.  Max felt happy he had suggested a game that everyone was enjoying.
