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.

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.

Where’s My Blanket: a guided meditation and story

Where’s My Blanket: a guided meditation and story

Bliss the blanket gets a bath in the washing machine while the little girl plays. “Where’s my blanket?” she wonders at bedtime. Will Bliss be dry in time?

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Sensory Delight” on Monday. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Where’s My Blanket,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:29

Narrator: Female

Where’s My Blanket? Excerpt:

Sunlight warmed the little girl’s bed.  A grayish looking blanket, folded with love, was nestled up to a fluffy pillow.  It would be a while before the little girl returned from her first day at camp, so Bliss blanket had plenty of time to relax.  Just as she settled in, the little girl’s dad came in the room holding a laundry basket.

He picked the little blanket up and said, “We should have just enough time to get you clean.” The little blanket was usually with the little girl, whether she was sleeping or playing.  So Bliss had gotten a bit dingy.  She didn’t even know what color she had once been.  The blanket’s lace edges had been worn off long ago.  Now that the little girl was away, her dad had decided it was time for her blanket to be washed.  So Bliss rode along in the laundry basket, wondering what it would be like in the washing machine.

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

Sensory Delight: a guided meditation and story

Sensory Delight: a guided meditation and story

Winfield the Wheelchair and Brian experience sensory delight as they share beautiful colors, scents, and sounds with Javier.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:48

Narrator: Male

Sensory Delight Excerpt:

Brian and Winfield rolled forward onto the wide path towards the source of the soothing sounds. The families made their way down the path, taking their time and enjoying the beauty of all the plants. Up ahead Winfield spotted a dot of red zipping around the raised beds. As he rolled closer the wheelchair discovered that the zippy red dot was a hummingbird sipping nectar from some bright orange trumpet flowers. Their grass like leaves flowed over the edges of their raised bed. Winfield stopped so that Brian would have the opportunity to touch their leaves. As he held the leaves of the trumpet flowers, the little red hummingbird hovered directly in front of Brian. Javier gasped, impressed that the bird had flown so close to Brian. Brian giggled, happy to interact with the cheerful little hummingbird.

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

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.

Doctor Mia: a kid’s bedtime, nap time story and relaxation

Doctor Mia: a kid’s bedtime, nap time story and relaxation

Today’s story was written to fulfill an Ahway Islander’s request for a story about a pediatrician. Mia and Max are feeling tired and stuffy today. Feeling worried mom and dad call the doctor.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:46

Narrator: Female

Doctor Mia Excerpt:

Dad came into the room with a cheerful, “Good morning!” He took a look at his usually upbeat children, and saw they were slouched and bundled up. They both looked at him and replied, “good morning,” with a couple of weak smiles followed by a chorus of sneezing and coughing. Feeling a little worried, he walked over to Mia and gently felt her forehead. Then he put the back of his hand on Max’s forehead. Both kids felt hot.

Dad picked up his phone and began dialing. “Who are you calling?” Max asked.

“Your pediatrician.” Dad replied. “I think you are sick.”

“Oh no.” Mia said, eyes wide. “I don’t need the doctor I’m fine.” She stood up quickly, and then, feeling a little dizzy, sat right back down.

“I’m fine too.” Max said.

Mom popped into the room and said, “You both need to go to the doctor. I’m calling your school to tell them you’re sick.”

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