A Garden for All Excerpt:

“Are you ready for another great day!” Brian’s dad said as he peeked through the doorway.

Brian grinned even wider as he responded, “Yes! Let’s get going!” Brian’s dad walked over to Brian’s dresser and asked, “What do you want to wear today?”

“I was thinking I would wear my orange train shirt. I think Javier is going to wear his green train shirt.” As Brian and his dad completed their morning routine Winfield wondered what they were going to do. Once Brian was buckled in, Winfield steered while Brian pushed the wheels around, working together to get to the kitchen for breakfast. After breakfast Brian’s mom and dad followed as Brian and Winfield wheeled out the door and onto the sidewalk. The morning sun lit the sidewalk with a warm glow and the group began their walk to the garden.

Hello! a relaxing short story and meditation

Hello! a relaxing short story and meditation

Tanner toad greets a new friend with the customary “Hello!” Since the other toad doesn’t respond, Tanner tries a different approach.

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Batty Dragon” on Monday. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Hello!” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!
Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:36

Narrator: Male

Hello! Excerpt:

It was time for a break in the shade. Tanner knew where to go, his favorite spot under the ferns.  There was enough shade there to cool off, with a little bit of sunlight filtering through the airy leaves.  So, off Tanner hop, hop, hopped over to the ferns.  When he got there, he saw another toad in his spot, facing away.  Tanner hadn’t seen this toad before, and became excited.  Maybe he would make a new friend!  Eagerly the little toad hopped over to the fern and said, “Hi! I’m Tanner!”  The other toad stayed in place with his back to Tanner.  Tanner felt sad the toad was ignoring him and then annoyed.  Why did this toad think he could sit in Tanner’s favorite spot and then ignore him.  That was just rude.  Tanner decided he would tell the other toad how he felt, when suddenly there was a big rumbling sound.

A truck drove by on the street. It was so loud, that it hurt Tanner’s head.  He held a big leaf over his head to block the noise and watched the truck go by.  Tanner felt relieved after the loud noise rumbled away, and sighed.  Then he looked back at the other toad, who was still facing the other direction.  Now Tanner was puzzled.  That was a really loud noise, why hadn’t the other toad even looked?  Could the other toad hear it?

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

A Parade: a meditation and soothing child’s tale

A Parade: a meditation and soothing child’s tale

Today James and Julia are going to a parade! Julia is a little worried that it will be too loud for her brother. How will James handle the excitement?

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our newest story on Monday, “Buried Treasure.” Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “A Parade!” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!
Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:26

Narrator: Male

A Parade Excerpt:

A warm breeze ruffled the curtain in James’ bedroom, allowing sunlight to flutter into the room.  James opened his eyes and stretched.  Then he remembered, today was the parade!  He hopped out of bed and got dressed.  His sister Julia was already eating her breakfast.  She was excited too.   James smiled and said, “I can’t wait to see the parade!”

“Me too!” Julia exclaimed!  “Do you have earplugs?  It might get kind of loud.”

“No, I’ll be fine.  I don’t want to look weird.” James said.

“I think you should bring them just in case.”  His big sister said gently.

James pretended he hadn’t heard her and asked, “What is your favorite part of the parade?”

Julia stopped mentioning earplugs, and responded. “I love seeing all the people waving from the colorful floats.  What’s you’re favorite part?”

James smiled and said. “I love all the different vehicles.  Do you think there will be fire trucks?”

“I’m sure there will be some.”  Julia said.  She decided to pack some extra earplugs just in case her brother became really uncomfortable. They finished their breakfast and walked with their parents to the parade route.  As their mom and dad set up their folding chairs in the shade, James found a spot on the curb in front of them. He waved for Julia to join him.

“This is a good spot!” she said grinning ear to ear.

Clumsy Kitty: a relaxing bedtime story for children

Clumsy Kitty: a relaxing bedtime story for children

Grubby is a sweet but clumsy kitty. As he checks on everyone’s activities, Grubby makes a bit of a mess. It’s a relief to all when he settles in for a nap.

Hello everyone!  We have a bonus for you this week! For international cat day we have a new calming kitty story “Clumsy Kitty.” Enjoy this extra episode about one of our friendly furballs. And don’t worry dog lovers. We’ll have a special Dog story for National Dog Day later this month!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:58

Narrator: Female

Clumsy Kitty Excerpt:

Grubby ran into the hall stopping outside the family room. The soft sound of pages turning drifted into the hall. The curious cat hurried into the room and leapt onto the bookcase. The bookcase wobbled a little as Grubby landed. The clumsy kitten took a second to balance then looked around. He saw Mom reading a book on the couch. Eager for some more petting the kitten took a step towards Mom. His paw landed on a loose book, and with that step Grubby, and the book, slid off the bookcase. Mom jumped, surprised by the sudden noise and turned to see the cream-colored kitty. Books cascaded down all around him.

Cuddly Dragon: a relaxing bedtime story

Cuddly Dragon: a relaxing bedtime story

A birds’ song wakes our cuddly dragon from a nap, reminding Dragon to return the cuddly yellow blanket to the kids. Dragon decides the playground is best.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:31
Narrator: Female
Cuddly Dragon Story Excerpt:

The dancing melody tickled Dragon’s ears. And so, with a smile, Dragon woke. It was always wonderful to hear the joyful music of the birds.  So, Dragon blinked, eyes fluttering open to see the source of the song. Vibrant flowers softly swayed with the breeze releasing their refreshing scent.  Dragon took a deep breath, in and out (deep breath), enjoying the floral fragrance. Then Dragon nuzzled the soft yellow blanket, still clutched in Dragon’s paws. There was a nervous fluttering in Dragon’s tummy. It was time to return the blanket to the kids.

Meditation Description: Rest among the twinkling stars with today’s meditation.

Creative Cars: a mindful story and meditation for kids

Creative Cars: a mindful story and meditation for kids

Creative cars Bozz and Rozz make a new friend, Mozz. The toy cars share the story of how their friends, the blocks helped them get back on their track.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:44
Narrator: Male
Creative Cars Story Excerpt:

Now that they were relaxed Rozz began the story. “One day Bozz and I were feeling a bit curious and decided to explore beyond this table. We drove right up to the edge and peered over it.  A puppy dog pillow grinned up at us from the floor.
Knowing the pillow would give us a soft landing we decided to zip right off the table and onto the squishy pillow.”

Bozz added, “So, we launched off the table. The puppy pillow caught us easily. We giggled and giggled, excited by our big jump. Our gas tanks were sore from laughing as we sank into the big pillow and relaxed. Once we settled down Rozz said, ‘OK. let’s get back up to the table.’ I tried to roll forward, but the pillow was too soft. ‘Rozz do you see a way back up?’ I asked.

Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating on a cloud, and relax into the feeling of lightness.
