Checking In: a relaxation and story for your naptime routine

Checking In: a relaxation and story for your naptime routine

Danny the dump truck feels a little down. Dory has an idea. Maybe checking in to the maintenance garage will help him feel better.
Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:24

Narrator: Male

Checking In Excerpt:

As the little dump truck trudged forward slowly, Dory, the other dump truck, drove past him and asked, “Is everything ok Danny?”

“Yeah. Why?” Danny mumbled, busy concentrating on driving forward.

“You’re moving pretty slow this morning, and your tires look flat.” Dory responded.

“I wanted to ask you about that.” Danny said. “My tires are really squishy, and my wheels hurt. I’m having trouble moving today. Have you ever felt like that?”

Dory said, “Yes, when I have a flat tire. I usually go to the maintenance garage to check my tires and oil every other week, so my tires stay full. When did you get your last check up?”

Danny laughed and said, “Oh I’m too busy to take time for that. I probably haven’t stopped by that garage for almost a year. I’m a healthy truck.”

Today’s Meditation: Feel your muscles relax as you check in with your body from head to toe.

Open the Roof Excerpt:

Tucked away in her cozy garage Carmen the little blue convertible hoped to go out for a drive on a bright sunny day. Oh how the little convertible loved the warm weather when she got to roll down her roof and enjoy the sunshine.  Today, the temperature felt just about right, not too hot, not too cold.  The garage door rolled open and Carmen could see the sun shining through the scattered fluffy clouds.  Maybe she would go for a drive today!  Sure enough her driver walked into the garage smiling and looking up at the sun.  She wandered over to the little car and said.  “I think this is a great day to drop your roof.  What do you think?”  Carmen felt excited! They were definitely going out! Today’s Meditation: Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.

Stuck in Mud: a bedtime story and meditation

Stuck in Mud: a bedtime story and meditation

It’s a rainy day as Toby the tow truck drives along. Toby notices his friend Bodhi the beach buggy is stuck in mud. How will he get his friend moving again?

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Roly Robot” and this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Stuck in Mud,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!
Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:37

Narrator: Male

Stuck in Mud Excerpt:

Rain pitter-pattered in a gentle rhythm on the roof.  The little tow truck listened as the beat grew stronger and stronger.  Soon the wind added a whistle to the rhythm of the rain. Toby wondered if the cars were struggling on the roads.  The weather sounded a bit pushy.  The little tow truck hoped everyone was driving safely.  Then Toby heard the motor in the garage door whirr. Slowly, the door rolled up above the little tow truck, and the driver ran in.

“Are you ready to give some people a hand?”  The driver asked.  Toby took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath) to clear his mind and focus.  Then he rumbled a “Yes!” as the driver turned the key.

“OK, let’s go.” The driver said.

Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating in a tranquil pool, safe and relaxed, as the water rocks you gently.

The Air Show: a soothing kid’s story when you need a break

The Air Show: a soothing kid’s story when you need a break

Holly, Hawk, and Herb the airplanes are excited as they get ready for the air show. Each plane will share their specialty.
Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Connor’s Conundrum this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “The Air Show,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:10

Narrator: Female

The Air Show Excerpt:

Holly, Hawk and Herb felt a sense of adventure as they thought about what the day held in store for them.  Today, the three little airplanes were flying in an air show.   It was something completely new for all of them.  Holly felt excited to bring some delight to the people watching, Herb felt happy to be with his friends, and that his flight would be low to the ground.  No high loops for him.  Hawk felt thrilled that he was about to show everyone what he could do.  The three little airplanes waited eagerly for their turn in the show.  “Let’s take some deep dragon breaths so we are calm and ready.”  Holly suggested.

“That’s a great idea.”  Herb said.  “I know I could use a little extra focus.”

“That’s right we want to be safe, and have fun.” Hawk added.

The three little planes took deep dragon breaths, in and out (deep breath), and pictured their routine in their minds.  They took another deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath), and wished the people watching a delightful day.  With one more deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath), the planes felt focused and ready for their big moment.

They heard the announcer call out “Now, put your hands together for Holly, Hawk, and Herb as they get ready for their first flight in this air show!”  It was time!

Today’s Meditation: Today, enjoy the feeling of your body relaxing into the warm sand on a sunny beach.

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.

The Sparkling Engine Excerpt:

As they walked through the forest their dad pointed out the different animals and plants.  Billy and Emily saw squirrels, bunnies, turtles, robins, oak trees, and ferns.  Every once and a while, Billy checked to make sure his favorite green train engine was still in his pocket.

Soon the forest opened up to a sidewalk.  They followed the sidewalk back to the street and saw train tracks ahead!  Billy was excited! He might see a real live train!  Would it be anything like his favorite toy engine?  Emily beamed at her big brother.  She was thrilled to see the train tracks too.  Emily liked trains, just as much as her big brother.  “Shall we wait here a bit to see the train go by?”  Dad said, pointing to a bench.

“Yes!” Billy and Emily exclaimed.
