543. A Mountain of Snow!: a meditation and calming story

Sidney Snowplow creates a mountain of snow so the kids can go sledding.

Narrator: Male

Story Begins: 5:23

A Mountain of Snow Excerpt:

It was a windy and snowy morning on Ahway Island. Sidney Snowplow had just woken up in his cozy garage. He felt well rested and ready to start a busy day of snowplowing! Sidney revved his engine as he waited patiently for his driver to hop in and start their fun snow day together. As his engine warmed up, Sidney enjoyed taking a few minutes by himself to enjoy the quiet morning.

 

Sidney loved to work in the snow, especially when it was freshly fallen. It was like playing in a pile of sugar all day long! Sidney loved how soft and fluffy snow could be, but he also loved how strong it could be when people built forts or figures out of snow.

 

After a few minutes Sidney’s driver came out to the garage carrying a hot cup of coffee. The driver opened up the big garage door and took a seat in the driver’s seat. Now they were ready to head out into the snow!

526. Pizza Delivery!: a mindful story and meditation for kids

526. Pizza Delivery!: a mindful story and meditation for kids

Vinnie Scooter helps out a new friend as he delivers pizza to people on Ahway Island.

Narrator: Male

Story Begins: 4:54

Pizza Delivery! Excerpt:

Vinnie was a little electric scooter who lived on Ahway Island with Flavio, the town pizza maker. Vinnie was a shiny, bright red color, very stylish and sleek, and when he drove fast, his engine made a buzzing sound that reminded people of the sound of a buzzy bee.

 

Vinnie loved whizzing around the roads of Ahway Island. He especially loved a ride through town, where Vinnie could see what everyone was up to on Ahway Island.

 

When Flavio wasn’t working, he would take Vinnie on long rides. They’d start off in the center of town and end up driving along the Shore Road that hugged the southern coastline of Ahway Island!

Today’s Meditation: Feel calm and relaxed as you imagine a baby elephant and its mama.

295. Mystery Jug: a calming story with a positive message

295. Mystery Jug: a calming story with a positive message

Today’s Bedtime Story with a Positive Message: Terry and Charlie truck carefully drive at the edge of the forest.  Charlie gets hot and needs water. What will Terry Truck do to help his friend?

Excerpt from today’s calming bedtime and nap time story with a positive message: Mystery Jug

Warm sunlight filtered through the leaves of the trees at the edge of the woods forming a lacy pattern of light and leaves that covered everything underneath the forest canopy. Terry the truck carefully drove alongside Charlie. As the two trucks drove slowly at the edge of the forest they tried to keep their engines cool. Today, even in the shade, it was hot. Up ahead, Terry noticed a hill causing the little truck to wonder how they would climb it in the heat.

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