Sleep Tight Stories brings you two calming bedtime stories every week. The stories range from retellings of fairy tales, folk stories, classic Canadian works, and original stories written by ourselves or guest authors. Each episode is just the right length, safe for kids of all ages, and a perfect addition to your families bedtime routine.
The Golden Beetle
The Golden Beetle is a Chinese tale about a family that has been having a hard time. They hope that things will get better but they are very, very hungry and Ming-li, the son, is not having any luck finding work. One day a priest comes to their house to reward them for their faith and persistence. He gives Mrs. Wang a golden beetle and tells her what she needs to do. He tells her not to sell it and it will fill their stomachs for as long as they live. How can this be true? Mrs. Wang can’t wait to try it.
The Lucky Mink
The Lucky Mink is a story about a mink who everyone else feels is the luckiest mink around. They all think it is because he has a white-tipped tail but he always tells them that is not why. One of the smaller minks loves to follow the lucky mink around and his name is Big Brother mink. Big Brother would love nothing more than to be just like the lucky mind. One day the lucky mink gets into a bit of trouble, can Big Brother help?
Cat City - Ch. 22 😺
This is our final episode of Cat City and Susan is home again. She is concerned about how she is going to explain her absence to her parents but when she speaks to them realizes that to them she was just asleep for a short time. She is missing Tucker and thinking a lot about what happened in Cat City when she gets a special visitor.
The Sneezing Toucan
The Sneezing Toucan by Jim Munroe is the story we are sharing today. The boy in our story wants to find a pet that will be just right for him that would not upset his mom. He looks through the store at all the different pets and finally chooses the one he thinks will be the best. But, once he gets the pet home he realizes that this pet might not work either. Can he figure out a way to make it work?
Cat City - Ch. 21 😺
his week in Cat City we are going to see what happens when the rats are gone. Susan gets to eat and sleep and Tucker is treated like a hero. Vinnie has been made Captain and takes his cats out to make sure that all the rats are gone. Alfred tells Susan that the Council still wants to meet with her and she is worried about what that might mean.
A Tempest in the School Teapot
This week I am sharing an excerpt from Anne of Green Gables. It is part of the chapter where Anne is in the classroom and Gilbert Blythe calls her carrots. If you have not read the book or seen the movie I highly recommend it. It is a great book and this is one of my favourite scenes.
