A Solo Song: a calming bedtime and nap time story for children

A Solo Song: a calming bedtime and nap time story for children

Today’s Story (EP54): A Solo Song: a calming bedtime and nap time story for children

Clara the clarinet listens to all the music in the store as she waits to find her friend to take her home and play her solo song.

Narrator: Female
Today’s Meditation:

Imagine floating on a cloud, and relax into the feeling of lightness.

Relaxing Story Excerpt:

It was quiet in the music store, as the owner busily dusted the instruments and got ready for the day. A symphony played over the speakers in the ceiling and Clara the clarinet listened carefully. Oh how she loved to hear all the instruments play together. Clara also enjoyed hearing a clarinet solo. She was so proud to be a clarinet when she heard the warm rich tones play. The little clarinet could hardly wait for her turn to make those beautiful sounds. She still needed a friend to inspire her. As Clara listened to the beautiful music, she heard a ding. It didn’t quite fit with the music that was playing. Then the little clarinet realized that the music store was open.

Time Travels: an original short story for kids

Today’s Story (EP301): Time Travels: an original short story for kids

Clever kids turn Chance the Cardboard box into a time machine and visit some dinosaurs.  Will their time travels bring them back in time for lunch?

Today’s Meditation:

Imagine floating on a cloud, and relax into the feeling of lightness.

Here’s an excerpt from this children’s story:

A sunbeam slipped through the living room curtains warming the kitten in the cardboard box. The little kitty purred and rolled onto his back. Chance the cardboard box enjoyed the peaceful, serene moment. The sound of giggling drifted down the hall. Chance smiled, knowing that it was about time for another adventure. The little kitty perked up his ears and listened. He wasn’t going to give up his spot in the sun unless he had to. Sure enough, the kids skipped down the hall. As they saw Chance they asked, “Ready for today’s adventure?” That was enough for the fluffy kitten. It was time to find another spot to nap. The two kids hopped into the cardboard box just missing the little kitty.

Today’s Story (EP51): A New Family: a bedtime story with guided meditation

Horace, the house is empty waiting for a new family to move in.  He is excited to see the for sale sign come down and meet his new family.

Today’s Meditation:

We will guide you in a progressive relaxation from your head to your toes.

Here’s a snippet from this children’s short story:

Before long, Horace heard a deep rumble. He saw a large truck turn down his street. Could it be them? A red car followed the truck. The truck parked in front of Horace and the red car turned up the driveway. The car door opened and four people got out, a mom, a dad, and two little girls. Horace was so happy. They were exactly what he had imagined. The little house beamed and opened his doors as wide as he could so that the movers could get the furniture in. They brought in couches and chairs, tables and desks, beds and dressers, and of course boxes, boxes, and more boxes. The movers hopped into their great big truck and rumbled away.
