Lily, a frog, tells fairytales, folk tales and bedtime stories to kids.

    The Rich Man and the Shoemaker

    The Rich Man and the Shoemaker

    The Rich Man and the Shoemaker is a fable first penned by LaFontaine and rearranged and recorded here by Marlene Wurfel. This episode features a very special performance by Captain Thunderpants, the Vancouver Island Comox Valley's Performer of the Year in 2020. 
    This story is hundreds of years old. Is it still relevant today? Should the Shoemaker have done something differently? Would you have?

    Stella and Neon

    Stella and Neon

    This is 15 minutes of relaxed visualization. 
    Stella Starwalker and her wolf, Neon, journey through the star scape. They drink from the Milky Way, see Pleiades and other storied constellations, and rest by The Tree of Life. What does a star wolf dream of when he finally sleeps? Star bunnies, of course.
    Be well, Darlings.

    The Velveteen Rabbit with Annotations

    This beautiful story written in 1922 by Margery Williams is almost 100 years old and about a time in history before there was antibiotic treatment for scarlet fever, a potentially fatal childhood disease. It's a story not only about survival, but resilience, change, love, and fairy magic.
