    435. First Snowfall: a mindful bedtime story

    435. First Snowfall: a mindful bedtime story

    Owen enjoys the first snowfall of the season by going sledding with a new friend.



    Narrator: Female



    Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 9:15

    First Snowfall Excerpt:

    According to the calendar, the first official day of winter wouldn’t come for another month, but to Owen, it seemed that winter had definitely arrived in his neighborhood! Overnight, the first snow of the season had fallen all across Ahway Island, covering the neighborhoods, forests, and beaches with a thick blanket of snow.



    Fluffy white flakes piled on top of each other on the window sill as Owen gazed outside. He watched, entranced, as more and more flakes slowly floated down to the ground, covering the snow that had fallen overnight with ever-thickening sheets across the front lawn. Owen smiled. He had always loved falling snow, and the first snow of the year was always a particularly joyous event. He knew that when he went outside, he would experience that special, quiet hush unique to a world covered with freshly fallen snow.



    Owen watched for a few more minutes, just quietly enjoying the sight. The peaceful beauty of a snowy world was one of his favorite things and he just wanted to watch silently for a little while. But after a couple minutes, a thought occurred to Owen. The snow was probably thick enough for sledding!



    Gazing through the window, Owen looked down the block to see the hill at the end of his street. All the children in the neighborhood called the hill “the sledding hill,” no matter what time of the year it was. Today, the hill stood tall and white and ready for some the season’s first sledding tracks!

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

    149. Puppy Pick-Up: a story and meditation for your bedtime routine

    149. Puppy Pick-Up: a story and meditation for your bedtime routine

    Pal the Puppy feels bored now that the kids have gone to to school. He waits for a puppy pick-up at the bus stop to find them.

    Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Puppy Pick-Up" and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

    Narrator: Male

    Puppy Pick-Up Excerpt:

    The little puppy darted in between and around the boy and girl’s feet as they rushed around the kitchen.  He was happy they were up and about on this beautiful morning.



    “Watch out, Pal!”  they said.



    What Pal didn’t know was why the boy and girl were rushing at all. This was the time of day that the puppy sat at their feet while they ate breakfast.  Pal would relax as the boy rubbed his ears and the girl scratched his chin.  Today was different.



    With a 'see-you-later' and not nearly enough petting, the boy and girl walked out of the front door.  The little puppy hoped up onto the couch to look out the window.  Where were they going? Pal barked, trying to get their attention.  The little puppy watched as the boy and girl walked along the sidewalk.  Then the puppy barked so loud he fell backwards into the soft cushions on the couch.  Pal popped back up and thought about the bags he had seen the boy and girl carry.  He realized they were going to school.

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

    433. Autumn Moments: a short story and meditation for kids

    433. Autumn Moments: a short story and meditation for kids

    Wilma Willow treasures the moments of a beautiful autumn day.



    Narrator: Female



    Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:05

    Autumn Moments Excerpt:

    Wilma the Willow Tree stood at the edge of the creek and gazed at the softly flowing water. The graceful willow tree always enjoyed watching how the water danced around the stones in the creek bed. Today, as always, little fish played in the creek, swimming against the flowing water with all their strength, their tiny fins moving as fast as they could go. Then suddenly, the fish relaxed their bodies entirely, letting the current take them back down the creek.



    Wilma’s branches swayed slightly as she chuckled to herself, amused by the antics of the little fish. She knew the creek would soon be frozen and still, so she treasured up the images of the playful fish, storing up the memories in her mind.



    An acorn rolled down next to Wilma’s trunk. She looked upwards, gazing at her friend, Oswald the Oak Tree.



    “How’s it going, Oswald?” she called out.

    Today’s Meditation: Today, enjoy the feeling of your body relaxing into the warm sand on a sunny beach.

    148. Penguin Games: a calming story and meditation

    Dragon joins in the penguin games with Princely. Having lots of fun sliding across the ice, will Dragon end up in the water?

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

    Narrator: Female

    Penguin Games Excerpt:

    The dragon flew back to the land of ice and snow, for another visit with Princely the Penguin and Beau the Beluga Whale. The dragon paid close attention to the gorgeous landscape, now knowing the way. Everything was white, with a little bit of blue in the ice and sea. Stars twinkled in the sky and the moonlight caused the snow to sparkle like diamonds.



    The dragon landed in the soft snow and began searching for Princely and Beau. Then Princely slid up and over a drift, on his belly. He spun in a circle and popped up at the dragon’s feet.



    The penguin smiled and asked, “Wanna try?”



    It did look like a lot of fun. The dragon heard a splash, turned, and saw the little whale smiling from the surface of the sea.



    “Go ahead! You’ll like it,” Beau encouraged the dragon. “I’ll have fun watching.”



    The dragon nodded at Princely with a smile.

    431. To the Rescue! a calming meditation and story

    431. To the Rescue! a calming meditation and story

    Eddie and Luis are playing outside when they notice their neighbor needs some help!



    Narrator: Female



    Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:02

    To the Rescue! Excerpt:

    Eddie and his little brother Luis were playing outside. It was a lovely autumn afternoon. The cool, crisp breeze swept over the tree branches, slowly but surely pushing any remaining leaves off the branches and onto the ground. But the sun was bright and kept the children from feeling too cold.



    Eddie and Luis were pretending they were on an old-fashioned sailing ship. Eddie pretended to be the captain, and Luis one of the sailors. Luis had climbed one of the trees in the yard and was sitting on one of the branches, pretending to adjust the sails.



    “Sailor!” shouted Eddie, “tie up the mizzenmast! There’s a storm approaching!”



    “Ay-ay, captain!” shouted Luis, trying to make his voice loud and deep, which was a little hard since he was only six. But then he said in his normal voice, “Er, Eddie, what’s a mizzenmast?”



    “Oh…well, you know, sailing ships have tall masts with sails. The mizzenmast is the mast at the back of the ship,” replied Eddie.



    “Oh, okay,” said Luis. “Er, I mean… ay-ay, captain!” he said, using his sailor voice again. “Tying up the mizzenmast now, sir!”

    147. Racing Sails: a relaxation and story for your nap time routine

    147. Racing Sails: a relaxation and story for your nap time routine

    Eddie and Luis are out for a sail when they spot some friends in another boat. It's time for the racing sails!

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

    Narrator: Male

    Racing Sails Excerpt:

    “Before you get on, you’ll need these,” their dad said, handing them life vests. Luis took one and handed it to Eddie, then they both put them on and carefully climbed aboard. The boat rocked a little as each boy stepped on. They found a spot to sit and watched as their mom and dad worked together to move Sandy out of the harbor.



    Soon they were out on the lake and the boys helped raise the sails by pulling on the lines their mom handed them. Once the main sail was up and filled with wind, Sandy began to tilt. Luis giggled a little. This was his favorite part.  As the wind tugged at the sail, Luis and Eddie’s mom noticed another sailboat further out on the lake and said, “Look, there’s another boat! Let’s race!”



    Their dad smiled and set their sailboat up to try to catch the other boat. They zipped across the waves, rolling over the crests and splashing down in the valleys. Just as they were about to catch the other sailboat, it turned. Luis and Eddie watched as the bright white sail fluttered, searching for the wind once again.  It found it and billowed out, full and strong.



    The sailboat headed towards Sandy, and Luis and Eddie could see two girls waving at them.



    “Is that Lisa?”  Luis asked.



    “I see Lydia, too!”  Eddie called out.
