Today’s Story (EP303): Dragon Boat: a calming bedtime and nap time story for children

Dragon flies to the docks and visits his boat friends.  Dragon is fascinated by how each boat moves and tries to be a dragon boat. Which way will work the best?

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

Narrator: Male
Dragon Boat Children’s Story Excerpt:

Dragon peeked under the water to see how Manny and Teagan were moving and noticed a propeller underneath them spinning. That was a little like the airplanes. As Dragon watched them move through the water Dragon decided to try to move like Teagan and Manny the motorboat. Dragon began to twirl its tail quickly behind.  Slowly dragon began to move forward.  Dragon giggled, feeling the water tickle its belly.
