    Checking In: a relaxation and story for your naptime routine

    Checking In: a relaxation and story for your naptime routine

    Danny the dump truck feels a little down. Dory has an idea. Maybe checking in to the maintenance garage will help him feel better.

    Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:24



    Narrator: Male

    Checking In Excerpt:

    As the little dump truck trudged forward slowly, Dory, the other dump truck, drove past him and asked, “Is everything ok Danny?”



    “Yeah. Why?” Danny mumbled, busy concentrating on driving forward.



    “You’re moving pretty slow this morning, and your tires look flat.” Dory responded.



    “I wanted to ask you about that.” Danny said. “My tires are really squishy, and my wheels hurt. I’m having trouble moving today. Have you ever felt like that?”



    Dory said, “Yes, when I have a flat tire. I usually go to the maintenance garage to check my tires and oil every other week, so my tires stay full. When did you get your last check up?”



    Danny laughed and said, “Oh I’m too busy to take time for that. I probably haven’t stopped by that garage for almost a year. I’m a healthy truck.”

    Today’s Meditation: Feel your muscles relax as you check in with your body from head to toe.

    Open the Roof Excerpt:

    Tucked away in her cozy garage Carmen the little blue convertible hoped to go out for a drive on a bright sunny day. Oh how the little convertible loved the warm weather when she got to roll down her roof and enjoy the sunshine.  Today, the temperature felt just about right, not too hot, not too cold.  The garage door rolled open and Carmen could see the sun shining through the scattered fluffy clouds.  Maybe she would go for a drive today!  Sure enough her driver walked into the garage smiling and looking up at the sun.  She wandered over to the little car and said.  “I think this is a great day to drop your roof.  What do you think?”  Carmen felt excited! They were definitely going out! Today’s Meditation: Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.

    Wallaby Waltz: a calming meditation and story

    Wallaby Waltz: a calming meditation and story

    Willow Wallaby explores her surroundings, keeping her mother’s pouch nearby, as other friendly animals join her in a wallaby waltz.

    Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:05

    Narrator: Female

    Wallaby Waltz Excerpt:

    The wallabies enjoyed some fresh green grasses and some sweet and delicate flowers. With a full belly, Willow felt curiosity encouraging her to explore. A butterfly landed on her nose and then fluttered away. The little wallaby leapt about following the butterfly. As the colorful bug settled onto the high branch of a tree, the little wallaby noticed what seemed to be a couple of furry rocks rolling towards her. Alarmed she stomped her foot and quickly hopped back into her mother’s pouch. Willow mother chuckled and said, “It’s ok Willow. Meet Willie and Wylie Wombat.”

    Today’s Meditation: Happiness and love flow through you in this meditation.

    Sand Dragon: a calming story and meditation

    Sand Dragon: a calming story and meditation

    Dragon is ready to relax and heads to the beach. The cozy sand invites Dragon to burrow in until there appeared to be a sand dragon lying on the beach.

    Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Giving Back” this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Sand Dragon” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

    Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:04

    Narrator: Female

    Sand Dragon Excerpt:

    Spreading wings wide to catch the breeze, the dragon rose above the train tracks, and waited for the sparkling train to roll by.  Then the dragon followed the train.  As they reached the warm beach, it seemed to call to the dragon.  Poof, a cloud of sand surrounded the dragon and then began to sink back to the earth as the dragon gently landed.  The sand felt so warm. With eyes closed, the relaxed dragon lied down and rolled over, enjoying the hug from the earth.  The dragon heard a giggle and a laugh and peeked to see who it was.  It was Benji the sand bucket and Paula Penguin.  They had watched the dragon roll over and found it quite amusing.  Still upside down, the dragon took a deep breath in and out. and created a smiley face in fire to say hello.



    Paula and Benji said, “We’re glad to see you again, too!”  The dragon smiled a big smile and rolled back over. Paula said “The sand is nice and warm tonight, isn’t it?” and dug herself a cozy hole to nestle into.  The dragon tilted its head to the side, puzzled at what the little penguin was doing.

    Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating on a cloud, and relax into the feeling of lightness.

    Narrator: Female

    Superhero Senses Excerpt:

    “What are we going to do today?” Ian asked.



    “I thought we could figure that out together. Since it’s raining outside, I thought we could play cards or board games.” Anora said leading them into the family room. The friends decided on a game. As they played Mike said, “Mmmmm. Something smells really good.”



    “I don’t smell anything. Do you?” Ian asked Anora. “Nope.” She said.



    “Mike must have super sense of smell.” Ian added. They continued playing until Ian stopped and asked, “Did you hear that?”



    “Hear what?” Anora replied, puzzled.



    “I think I hear something scraping around on the floor.” Ian replied.



    “You have superhero hearing.” Mike said. “I didn’t hear anything, either.”



    “There it is again!” Ian said. “Are you sure you can’t hear it?”

    Berry Fun: a short story and meditation for kids

    Berry Fun: a short story and meditation for kids

    Allie and Andy are excited to go berry picking. Although they're just getting to know each other they're sure to have a berry fun day!

    Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Soothing Sea” this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Berry Fun,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

    Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 11:09

    Narrator: Male

    Berry Fun Excerpt:

    When Andy and his dad reached Allie’s house, she bounded out of the front door with her dad following behind.  While Andy and Allie’s dads talked for a bit Allie said, “Thanks for inviting me!  I’ve never been berry picking before.”



    “You’re welcome.”  Andy said, smiling.   “This is my first time too.  I guess we’ll figure it out together.”



    She hopped into the car and said, “You know I really enjoyed playing that Sardines game you taught us.”



    “Thanks. I’m glad you liked it. Oh look! There’s the brand new train!” Andy said, excitedly pointing out the window.



    “Isn’t it cool!” Allie said.  “Do you know why it’s sparkling?  That’s the solar paint they used.  I think it’s awesome that the train moves with energy from the sun!  Don’t you?”



    Andy felt surprised, then excited.  Allie understood solar power, and she liked trains.  He smiled and said, “Yeah, it’s pretty neat.  I like how the solar energy powers the motors and then the magnets inside the track and pulls the train forward or backward, wherever it needs to go.  It’s so quiet too!  Listen!”  Both Allie and Andy listened and could just make out a gentle hum as the train passed them by.

    Today’s Meditation: Today, you will focus on relaxing your body a little bit at a time.  Starting with your feet, moving up to the top of your head, and ending with a focus on your entire body, you are sure to feel calm and relaxed.
