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.

Fascinating Fish: a kid’s meditation and story

Fascinating Fish: a kid’s meditation and story

Five fascinating fish explore the night time sea away from their coral beds. What will they find tonight in the star lit waters?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 9:21

Narrator: Female

Fascinating Fish Excerpt:

The five little fish swam away from their colorful coral beds. Fish One led the way through a maze of softly swaying sea plants. The five little fish peeked through the gentle leaves, curious to see who or what they would find today. A shadow floated over the five little fish and they looked up. The mysterious shape glided across the water without any flippers. Fish Two decided to get a closer look and zipped up towards the gentle shadow. Fish Two noticed the shadow had a ridge traveling along the underside of the shape, then zipped back to share the discovery with the others. “I’m not sure what it is yet. It might be a big fish. There’s a fin underneath.” Fish Two said.

Today’s Meditation: Feel calm and relaxed as you send kind energy to your heart.

Narrator: Female

Bug Party Excerpt:

Sunshine streamed down and tickled the petals on the red rose.  Leticia Ladybug yawned and stretched her wings as she rested on the velvety red petals.  What a beautiful morning!  The ladybug smiled as cozy sunlight warmed her from the tips of her delicate wings to her tiny little feet.  She took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath) enjoying the fresh morning air.  Leticia wondered whether her friends would visit today.  It had been awhile since she had seen Bert Bumblebee and Holly Honeybee.

Before long a small shadow drifted across the rose’s petals.  Then the little ladybug heard a buzzzz and smiled.  Holly was on her way!

Today’s Meditation: Deep dragon breaths are a key part of this guided meditation as you relax your body from your toes up to the top of your head.

Narrator: Female

A Grand Sight Excerpt:

She stretched her wings as sunlight spilled into her cozy cave, warming the condor’s nest.  Now, it was time to soar!  And so, Caitie the condor smiled and climbed outside.  She spread her wings to catch the thermals, air rising up from the canyon floor. Those thermals helped carry Caitie up, up, up, so she could soar properly.  As Caitie’s giant wings extended to their full length, a majestic shadow drifted across the land, and the condor soared.  The finger-like feathers stretched out into the air, as the condor enjoyed the warmth of the sun on her back.

Today’s Meditation: Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.

Kitten Love: a relaxing bedtime story

Kitten Love: a relaxing bedtime story

Zara the cat carefully guides her adopted duckling, Dylan, to breakfast. She shows the duckling her most sincere kitten love throughout the day.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:20

Narrator: Male

Kitten Love Excerpt:

Sunlight spilled through the drapes right onto Zara the kitten’s bed. The little kitten stretched her paws out as far as she could. She purred, grateful for the warmth of the morning sun. As Zara purred, Dylan the duckling began to coo. Zara smiled and gently licked the fluffy yellow duckling’s head, grooming his feathers. Dylan hopped up and wobbled out of the cozy cat bed. Zara followed the duckling, grooming Dylan as he waddled away. Then the little kitten stopped grooming. Her little pink tongue stuck out of her mouth as she listened intently to sounds coming from the kitchen. Then Zara heard the little girl call, “Zara, breakfast!”

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

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.
