Love all except the music

I really love this podcast except 1 thing. The final music that’s played at the end, when you’re hopefully fast asleep is slightly too loud and wakes me up again. So irritating as the rest is great. Really soothing voice, well read stories.

This is amazing podcast

I listen to this podcast with my family every day this is soo family friendly and I recommend it throughly 😁

tinaponders ,

Very soothing

I’ve tried a few sleep podcasts and this is one of my favourites. Some of the earlier stories are not as good; for example the fire crackling overwhelms the story of The Velveteen Rabbit but overall worth listening to.
