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.

A Cheerful Family: a mindful children’s tale

Mia and Max are part of a cheerful family on a road trip to visit their grandparents. How will they pass the time in the car?

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Surprise Gift” on Monday. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “A Cheerful Family,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:05

Narrator: Male

A Cheerful Family Excerpt:

It would be a long drive, so Max tried to think of something to do.  “Why don’t we play the alphabet game?” he said.

“That sounds like fun!”  Mia replied.  And Max, Mia, their mom and dad, began looking for things that began with the letter A.  Mia found an airplane flying overhead, mom found an apple tree,  Max saw animals outside, and dad counted eight arms inside the car.  Once everyone had found something beginning with A, they went on to find something beginning with B.

Mom was first this time.  She found a bright red barn.  Mia proudly spotted a bicycle.  Dad saw a boat, as they crossed a long bridge over the water, and Max was excited when he saw a buffalo. Now it was time to find C things.  Dad quickly spotted cows in a field.  Max found a camp.  Mom pointed out all the cars on the road, and Mia managed to spot a cat sitting in the grassy field.  Max felt happy he had suggested a game that everyone was enjoying.

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.

Cloud Caper: a children’s relaxing story and meditation

Cloud Caper: a children’s relaxing story and meditation

Ready for a cloud caper? Claude the cloud takes a break from sharing shade and water until the animals and people need him once more.
Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Fascinating Fish” on Monday. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Cloud Caper,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:29

Narrator: Male

Cloud Caper Excerpt:

The little fluffy cloud drifted across the sky.  Claude smiled at the earth below him. He enjoyed bringing water to all the plants, animals, and people.  They seemed so refreshed and happy after a little rain, and Claude had been giving them plenty. For days, the little cloud had rained and rained.  Now, all the plants were a bright green, the lakes were full, and there were even plenty of puddles to splash in.  The little cloud listened to hear how the plants, animals, and people were doing.

The people grumbled as Claude drifted by, “I wish it would stop raining.” Claude was surprised and a little disappointed.  He thought the people would enjoy splashing in the puddles he had made.  The little cloud took a deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath) and decided to see what the animals thought.

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

Dragon Fire: a bedtime story and meditation for kids

Dragon Fire: a bedtime story and meditation for kids

Dragon notices the forest animals shivering and uses dragon fire to create a cozy campfire outside of the cave for everyone to share.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:17

Narrator: Male

Dragon Fire Excerpt:

Dragon smiled at the animals, and took a deep breath in and out, (deep breath). Gentle flames flickered out of Dragon’s mouth towards the twigs and leaves. The kindling began to glow as fire rose from them. Flames took off from the twigs running to the branches, and finally they began to settle on the logs. Crackling sounds filled the air as smoke floated up to the sky. The animals had seen the Dragon fire before but wondered what this was. Then they felt the warmth spilling out from the fire on the logs. They stopped huddling together. The raccoons left their partially made shelter and scampered over to the fire. They basked in the glow and held their hand out warming them. The bunnies quickly hopped over taking their place around the dancing fire, followed by the squirrels.
