Today’s Nap Time Story (EP22): Nap Time: a bedtime story and relaxation for kids

Oceana the otter wants to play while the other otters are napping at nap time. What happens when she wakes them up?

All ages are different when it comes to nap time.  Even adults can benefit from napping.  Your sleep environment can be very important.  Dim the lights, get your favorite blanket or sleep buddy and snuggle up for Be Calm on Ahway Island short stories Podcast.

Here is an excerpt from today’s kids story, Nap Time:

Oceana looked around. No one had noticed. All the otters were still sleeping, but now Oceana really wanted to play. She was tired of waiting. Her collision with Alonzo gave her an idea. She smiled a mischievous grin and dove under the water. Just under the surface, the little otter swam under Alonzo and, ever so gently, pulled him towards Calisto. Before Alonzo ran into Calisto, Oceana swam away to watch. Calisto and Alonzo collided and jumped up. Startled, they looked at each other, realized there was no danger, and went back to sleep. This would not do. Oceana tried again. This time she towed both Calisto and Alonzo into the middle of the group of otters.
