508. Which One Fun: a calming children’s story

Bobbi and Blanca Butterfly find some tasty wildflowers on a beautiful morning on Ahway Island.

Narrator: Female

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:45

Which One Fun Excerpt:

Bobbi Butterfly stretched her wings in the early morning sun.  A gentle breeze rustled through the leaves signaling another beautiful day on Ahway Island. The air held a sweet scent.  Bobbi fluttered up into the breeze, curious to find the source of the scent.  As she flitted back and forth, this way and that, the scent got stronger and stronger until she came upon a beautiful meadow of wildflowers. 

 

What a glorious sight it was!  Tall yellow flowers waved in the wind as short purple flowers fluttered close to the ground.  In the middle were bright pink flowers that reflected the sunshine.  Bobbi landed on one of the pink flowers and tasted the nectar inside. It was absolutely delicious.  As she took another taste, another butterfly flitted by and landed on one of the purple flowers next to Bobbi’s pink one.  It was Blanca, Bobbi’s best friend.  

 

“Good Morning, Blanca” Bobbi called cheerfully.

 

“Bobbi! It’s you! Good morning!” Blanca replied.

 

“Isn’t it a lovely day?” Bobbi asked.

 

“Oh yes!” exclaimed Blanca.  

 

“What shall we do today?” Bobbi wondered out loud.

 

Blanca’s eyes were twinkling with excitement. “I had an idea.  Why don’t we taste as many flowers as possible and figure out which one has the sweetest nectar?”  

 

Both butterflies were very hungry, so this idea was very appealing.

498. A Rosy Home: a calming children’s story

Letitia Ladybug searches for just the right new home!

Narrator: Male

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:16

A Rosy Home Excerpt:

It was a bright sunny day.  All the flowers had been excited to open themselves up to the brightness of the day as the warmth of the sun’s rays settled on their petals. Their sweet scents wafted on the breeze, drifting across the fields until they reached the tall stalk of grass on which a little ladybug was sleeping.

 

Leticia Ladybug had been fast asleep all morning, cozily curled up on the bright green stalk of grass. The stalks had been waving gently in the breeze, back and forth, back and forth. But the breeze strengthened as the morning wore on, and finally, a gust of wind sent the stalk suddenly dipping toward the earth below.

 

“Oops!” said Letitia in surprise, now fully awakened as she plummeted toward the earth. But a moment later, the gust had blown by and the stalk had righted itself, and was again standing straight and tall. Letitia yawned and stretched her wings. She took a deep Dragon Breath in and out, enjoying the fragrance of the flowers in the air. It was time to start her day!

 

And it was an important day! Today, Leticia was going to look for a new home.  She knew what she was looking for: someplace soft, sturdy, and warm. The best option would be a flower blossom, if she could find just the right one!

Today’s Meditation: Gently sway like the graceful willow tree in today’s meditation.
