Today’s bedtime story excerpt:

Tanya sighed. She would have to wait. The little sea turtle was ready for an adventure. Now knowing it was too warm, she settled back down and waited. After some time had passed, Tanya noticed her egg had cooled. That meant the sand, and the beach, was cooler. It wouldn’t be long now. Finally, she heard the others grunting, “It’s time!”
