    490. Unpacking Fun: a calming short story for children

    Callie's family just moved to a new house on Ahway Island, and Callie has fun helping to unpack boxes.



    Narrator: Female

    Unpacking Fun Excerpt:









    It was a beautiful morning on Ahway Island. A beam of sunlight shone through the edges of the curtain in Callie’s bedroom, waking up the sleeping little girl. With a yawn, Callie opened her eyes and stretched. She smiled. Callie liked mornings, especially bright, sunny mornings. 

     

    But this morning, Callie felt just a little bit confused. Where was she? Everything felt a little…different. From her position in bed, she looked around the dimly-lit room and saw big cardboard boxes everywhere. Then she remembered – she was in her new house! That’s right! Yesterday, she and her family had moved into their new house on Ahway Island! And she had met a little girl named Anora! 

     

    Callie jumped out of bed, excited. Now she was remembering everything. Yesterday, the movers had brought in all the furniture and all the boxes from her old house and put them into her new house. But now, it was up to Callie and her family to unpack all the boxes and put everything away in its proper place in the new house.

    177. Guessing Game: a meditation and relaxing story for children

    Ian's schedule is missing. His friend Mike and his teacher help him out. What trick will Ian learn today?

    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 “Guessing Game” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

    Guessing Game Excerpt:



    Ian settled down at his desk and noticed that his schedule was missing.  He began to feel nervous.  Ian liked to know what was going to happen so he could feel ready for his day.  Today he had no idea.  His friend Mike looked over and noticed that Ian seemed upset.

     

    “What’s wrong Ian?” Mike asked. 

     

    “I don’t have my schedule.”  Ian replied.  

     

    “Oh, did you ask Mr. Smith?” Mike suggested.

     

    “No.  If it’s not on my desk then Mr. Smith doesn’t have it.  He always puts my schedule out.” Ian said, starting to feel a little panicky.  “I need to take a deep dragon breath (deep breath).”  Ian felt a little better, though he still worried about what was happening today.  

     

    Mike asked, “Do you want to know what I do when I’m unsure about what is going on?”

     

    Ian looked at Mike and said, “I thought you always knew what was happening.” 

     

    “Oh no.” Mike said with a smile.  “I guess.  I look and listen to find clues, then I guess.  Sometimes I’m right, sometimes, I’m wrong.  Do you want to try?” 

     

    “Ok,” Ian said hesitantly.  “ How do you find the clues?”  

     

    “I look and listen for changes.  Like Mr. Smith standing up at the board, he was at his desk.  Since he has changed spots, he may be giving us a clue.”  Ian eagerly waited for the clue his teacher was about to give. Mr. Smith got out his magnets.  Ian made his first guess.

     

    “I’m guessing that Mr. Smith is about to give us directions.”  He said to Mike.

    488. Gloomy Day Fun: a relaxing story and meditation for kids

    It's a gloomy and rainy day on Ahway Island, but Serena and Salvador Sea Lion have a fun day anyway!



    Narrator: Male



    Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:41

    Gloomy Day Fun Excerpt:



    It was a gloomy afternoon on Ahway Island. The sun was shining behind the clouds, of course, but nobody on the island could see it, because there were too many clouds in the way. It wasn’t really cold, but the air was heavy, as if the clouds wanted to rain down on the ground below but just weren’t quite ready yet. The world just felt a little dreary and as if everything was just…waiting for something.



    Serena and her friends were sleeping on some big rocks in the water not far from the shoreline. They had felt listless in the morning and had decided to take a nap. Now, the tide was starting to come in, and the water rose higher and higher against the rocks until at last, suddenly, a wave swept up over the rock and all over Serena’s body.



    Serena woke up with a start as the cold water hit her, her eyes opening wide.

    “Oof!” she said in surprise. But then she giggled. After all, she had thick, warm fur and the cold water didn’t bother her.

    “The tides coming in, everyone! Let’s play!” she said loudly.





    Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating in a tranquil pool, safe and relaxed, as the water rocks you gently.

    176. It’s Too Dark: a kid’s mindful story and guided relaxation

    176. It’s Too Dark: a kid’s mindful story and guided relaxation

    Bliss Blanket is afraid of the dark. Everything looks so different. What will help her relax?

    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 “It's Too Dark" and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

    Narrator: Female



    Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:40

    It's Too Dark Excerpt:

    Soft red-orange light filtered into the little girl’s room, as the sun slowly slipped out of sight. Bliss the blanket watched the sky change colors. The light blue sky grew darker and darker as the sun set. The little blanket felt happy that the door to the little girl’s room was open. Light trickled in from the hall as the girl’s room became dark.



     



    Bliss felt afraid of the dark. The blanket worried about what could be hiding in the shadows. Now that the stars shined in the sky outside, the little girl’s room was dark except for the trickle of light from the hallway. Already Bliss began to worry, what was sitting in the corner? There was something square with sharp corners spilled across the floor. It seemed to take up the whole corner. The blanket took a deep dragon breath in and out and looked somewhere else. What was that on the table? There was something tall and skinny with a big pyramid on top. Bliss took another deep dragon breath in and out and looked somewhere else. There was a big lumpy thing sitting next to her, and something snaking around on the floor. The blanket took another deep dragon breath in and out. Then the little girl came in and turned on the light.



     



    “You’ll never guess what I have!” she said.



     



    Bliss wondered what she had, but was even more relieved that the little girl had turned the light on.



     



    “I got a night light!” she said and plugged it into the wall. “Isn’t it pretty?” It was. “I’m going to turn off the lights so we can see it better.”

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

    NapNap Crocodile gives a singing lesson to Freeda, Fernando, and Felicity the Peeper Frogs.



    Narrator: Female



    Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:54

    Found Friends Excerpt:



    It was a beautiful afternoon in the early spring. The birds sang in the trees of the bamboo forest. The air had been cool in the morning, but as the day wore on the air had become warmer and warmer as the sun shone down on the ground.



    NapNap Crocodile opened her eyes. She had been taking a long nap in the refreshing waters of her stream. But now, as the afternoon sun warmed her back, she stretched and yawned.



    “What a lovely nap!” she said to herself. “But now I really need to practice my singing for a while.”



    NapNap took a drink from the stream, and then cleared her throat a couple of times.



    “Do mi so do so mi do,” she sang.

    175. Bumper Boats: a calming meditation and kid’s story

    175. Bumper Boats: a calming meditation and kid’s story

    The boats relax in the harbor, then the wind grows stronger. Soon the boats are rocking and rolling on the waves.

    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 “Bumper Boats" and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

    Narrator: Male



    Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:31

    Bumper Boats Excerpt:

    Sunshine streamed down through the clouds, sparkling on the calm water. All the boats rested in their slips, waiting for their captains to take them out to sea for the day. Manny the motorboat waited patiently in his slip next to Wakely the waverunner. The little waverunner was still asleep, enjoying the peace of the harbor. Manny looked over to see if Teagan the tugboat and Sandy the sailboat were awake. Teagan was already out and about, seeing if anyone needed help. Sandy was up too, and she sighed deeply. “What’s up Sandy?” Manny asked. “It’s a beautiful morning.”



     



    “The sunrise is beautiful. There’s just no wind. I won’t be able to sail with everything this calm.” Sandy said. Then she realized that this was the type of weather that Manny preferred. The sailboat smiled and said. “It is perfect weather for you, though. I guess I can trade off some windy days with calm days so that you have a chance for some fun too.”



     



    The motorboat smiled back and said. “We do tend to like opposite types of weather.”



     



    “Well, we both like sunshine. Maybe we can hope for a sunny day.” Sandy said.



     



    As the clouds above drifted together, a shadow covered the boats. “I’m sure the sun will be back out in a minute.” Manny said with a little hesitation. The water in the harbor was a little more wavy than before.



     



    “I feel the wind.” Sandy said. “I think the weather is changing.”

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