    The Little Lame Prince - By Dinah Mulock

    The Little Lame Prince - By Dinah Mulock

    Tonight's bedtime story comes from a book that my cousin picked out for me at a local bookshop! The Little Lame Prince was a classic many years ago, but it seems to have been forgotten in the last few decades. I really enjoyed reading it! It was my first time reading the story and I thought it would be more natural for me to read it to you for the first time together.

    This episode also features some soft rain sounds which were inspired by the rain that we've been having recently. The creator of this rain sound is Giorgio Magarò, who is a content creator on YouTube! If you enjoy the gentle sounds that they've created, please feel free to give them a little love to show them your appreciation. It was lovely to find a royalty-free sound to use for this episode!

    Heidi - Chapter 2-3 - Johanna Spyri

    Heidi - Chapter 2-3 - Johanna Spyri

    For tonight's story, I thought I'd continue reading more of Heidi by Johanna Spyri. Listen as I read you chapters 2-3 of this beautiful classic where we'll follow Peter and Little Heidi up to the top of the mountains with the flock of lively goats. Alm Uncle seems a little kinder in chapter 2 than he did in chapter 1....what do you think?

    Heidi - Chapter 1 - Johanna Spyri

    Heidi - Chapter 1 - Johanna Spyri

    Welcome to the first episode of Season 2 of ASMR Bedtime Stories!

    Tonight's story starts with Chapter 1 of Johanna Spyri's, Swiss classic, Heidi. You might be surprised to learn that this book was originally published in 1881 and turns 140 this year! I remember reading this book as a young child and loving every minute of Heidi's antics with Alm Uncle. I hope you find it as wonderful as I do!

    The Ugly Duckling - Anderson's Fairy Tales

    The Ugly Duckling - Anderson's Fairy Tales

    Tonight's episode features a traditionally beloved fairy tales for lots of folks! Hans Christien Anderson's 'The Ugly Duckling' is a little darker than you may remember from your childhood, but I think it makes the ending that much sweeter. This episode does come with a trigger warning at the start, just in case you're not in a place to listen to some topics right now.

    The Snow Queen - Anderson's Fairy Tales

    The Snow Queen - Anderson's Fairy Tales

    This episode is an extra long one! After debating on whether or not to break it up into smaller episodes, I decided that it was best listened to in one go so you wouldn't have to worry about finding out how the story ends.

    Hans Christien Anderson's 'The Snow Queen' served as the original inspiration for a certain popular movie franchise although there isn't much of the original story in the movie! I hope you enjoy this version as much as I do.

    Folktales from the Ashanti Tribe - West Africa

    Folktales from the Ashanti Tribe - West Africa

    This episode brings you a few folktales from the Ashanti Tribe (Ghana) in West Africa. One of my favorite frequenters of West African lore is Anansi, and I loved being able to read some of his tales for you tonight! I highly recommend reading more about him and his place in Ashanti culture.

    Thank you all so much for being patient with me while I've been sick. It's meant so much to see the kind messages you've sent checking in. You're the best and I appreciate you!

    If you'd like folktales read from your country, just let me know! I'm happy to bring a little bit of your home back to you.
