In this relaxing short story for kids, Paulina the palm tree enjoys the tropical breeze. As it grows stronger she shelters her friend Freeda frog.

Today’s Guided Meditation: Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.
Story Excerpt:

The cozy sunbeam brightened Paulina’s branches. The little palm tree looked out at the ocean and watched as the warm tropical sun’s light sparkled and danced on the waves. She sighed, happily. What a lovely day! The sky was a bright blue dotted with fluffy cotton ball-like clouds. Off in the distance, where the sea met the sky, the sea was a deep, deep blue. As the sea stretched towards the shore, it gradually changed to be a lighter and greener blue. From that blue-green, it changed into a shade of aqua. Until finally, crashing upon the shore, the sea was as clear as the water in the glasses of the people sitting on the beach. Paulina loved to listen to the sound of the waves as they rolled in and out. She loved to watch as the sea smoothed out the sand and erased all the footprints.
