Today’s Story (EP325): Beautiful Butterfly: a calming bedtime and nap time story for children

This story idea was given to us by a listener!!  Thank you, Alice, for sharing your idea. We hope you and all our listeners enjoy your story!

After thanking the sun, Rosie the beautiful butterfly plays a game of hide-and-seek with her friend Rabi. She notices how much she has to feel grateful for.

Short Story Excerpt:

The colorful rays of the sun tickled the wings of the little butterfly. As the morning light spilled across the little butterfly’s wings, Rosy’s wings began to sparkle. The sunlight was just what she needed to show off her bright blue shimmer. Rosy opened her wings, absorbing the sun’s warm energy. Rosy smiled, thankful for her beautiful wings. The little. butterfly had so much to feel grateful for. Rosy stretched her wings and said, “Thank you sun, for your warmth!”
