    Chance Cardboard Box almost gets recycled. How can the kids make sure it doesn't happen again?

    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 “Colorful Cardboard” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

    Narrator: Female



    Story Begins: 8:38



    Colorful Cardboard Excerpt:

    A sunbeam shone through the living room window and hugged the kitty sleeping inside the cardboard box.  The little kitty stretched and yawned. Then he gracefully hopped out of the box to find breakfast. Mom quickly moved through the living room as if she was on a special mission and stopped abruptly when she noticed Chance.  “It is time for that box to be recycled.”  Mom said, and she quickly picked Chance up.  The cardboard box wondered what it meant to be recycled, as mom set him in a green bin and closed the lid.



    Chance looked around. The bin was filled with cardboard, paper, and aluminium scraps. The cardboard box wondered where the boy and girl were.  What if they wanted to have another adventure?  Did they know where to find him?  Chance took a deep dragon breath in and out and hoped that the boy and girl would be ok as he started a new adventure.  Just then the lid opened and Chance heard, “There he is!”  The girl pulled the cardboard box out, as her brother held the recycle lid open.  Chance sighed with relief and looked back at the recycle bin.  There was an island on it and a name, but he was quickly whisked out of the garage before the cardboard box could read the name.

    Morgan Mole learns the importance of self care from their new friend, Diana Duck



    Narrator: Male



    Story Begins: 5:06

    Relaxing Riverbank Excerpt:











    It was a very sunny day on Ahway Island. Green tree branches swayed in the gentle breeze. The birds flew and fluttered through the wind, happy that the sun was out.



     



    It seemed everyone in the Ahway Island Forest was out and about, enjoying the beautiful weather. Everyone that is, except Morgan Mole, who was hard at work digging tunnels not far from the river. Morgan loved digging around the river where the dirt was cool and moist. Cool dirt was the best kind of dirt for digging, in Morgan’s mind.



     



    Recently, Morgan had been digging extra hard to find sticks for a new nest. The right selection of sticks would help create a nest that was big and sturdy and could last all year. Morgan had already found a few sticks in the days before. But the nest wasn't quite ready yet. More sticks and twigs were needed. So bright and early this morning, Morgan had begun the quest to find the perfect sticks to make the perfect nest.









    Today’s Meditation: Imagine drawing gentle shapes in the soothing sand as you relax before today's story.

    265. Island Wonder: a calming bedtime and nap time story for kids

    The Sparkling Train notices that the calm sea is always nearby. The Train visits the airport to ask the planes a question: 'are we on an island?'

    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 “Island Wonder” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

    Narrator: Male



    Story Begins: 8:44



    Island Wonder Excerpt:

    Filling the morning air with a warm glow, the sun peeked above the forest. The sun’s light filled the solar train with the energy it would need to move around the tracks all day.  The sparkling train smiled and checked its get ready list. The sparkling train’s wheels felt great, the doors were opening nice and smoothly, and its seats and floors were clean.  Yes, the train was ready for the passengers.  People lined up and waited on the platform.   The sparkling train’s doors whooshed open and the passengers filed on board eager to take their regular seats.  Once everyone was seated the train slowly eased forward to begin its route.  As it pulled out of the station the sparkling solar train noticed the waves on the sea.  The train smiled and took a deep dragon breath in and out relaxing with the waves.  The people on the train relaxed and took deep dragon breaths as well.  The sea calmed them all.  The train rolled up to the next station and noticed the sea once again.  It had never noticed that the sea was always alongside the train everywhere except the tunnel.  An idea formed in the sparkling train’s mind. And since all the passengers had exited, now the train had a break. It decided to test its idea by stopping at the airport to visit the planes.  They would know.



    The sparkling train rolled up to the airplane hangar and said, “Hey Holly, Herb, Hazel, Hawk, and Harmony…Are you there?”

    Today’s Meditation: Today, notice loving energy flowing through your body, from your feet up to your head.

    617: Caring Cardinal: a relaxing story for children

    617: Caring Cardinal: a relaxing story for children

    Carrie Cardinal helps an unlikely visitor in the Ahway Island Forest.



    Narrator: Female



    Story Begins: 4:20

    Caring Cardinal Excerpt:











    It was a damp day on Ahway Island. Little raindrops slid down the big green leaves of the pretty trees. The little drops landed on some red and yellow flowers. Carrie Cardinal hopped around on the forest floor, collecting the red and yellow flowers for her nest.



    Carrie loved collecting flowers for her nest inside the big oak tree. Carrie loved the red flowers the most because they matched her pretty feathers.



     



    Carrie lived in the big oak tree near Chelsea and Abby Chipmunk. They were very good neighbors. But they liked to stay inside during rainy days.



     



    Carrie brought the red and yellow flowers to her nest, gently placing them around the sides. She patted the flowers down with her feet, making sure she was gentle enough to not break her new decorations.

    264. Brave Bunny: a calming bedtime and nap time story for children

    Ballet Bunny thumps her foot at the Spring storm to warn her friends and scare away the thunder.  Will it work?

    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 “Brave Bunny” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

    Narrator: Female



    Story Begins: 8:30



    Brave Bunny Excerpt:

    Dark clouds filled the sky and wind twisted the branches of the trees.  Rain drip-dropped through the forest branches and splashed the little bunny.  Ballet shook and the water droplets flew off in all directions.  She hurriedly hopped next to a tree and checked to see where her friends were.  Carrie the Cardinal sat in the branch above her watching the sky.  The squirrels, Nutsy and Peanut, were busy in the branches above tossing an acorn back and forth.  The acorn flew over Nutsy’s head and then tumbled down below landing right in front of the little bunny.  Ballet smiled up at her friends. And nudged the acorn out where they could see it.  Peanut scampered down the tree to retrieve the acorn when a deep rumble filled the air growing louder and louder until the sound shook the trees branches.



    Ballet frowned and looked up at the sky, defiantly thumping her foot three times.   The little bunny was telling the thunder to go away and also warning her friends of the oncoming storm.  Peanut wasted no time gathering the acorn and heading for the cozy pine tree.  Nutsy zipped past Ballet and Carrie flew over, singing that Ballet should come with.

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

    614: Wishful Waiting: a mindful children’s story

    Britney Love learns how to be patient with her dad at the Ahway Island Animal Shelter.



    Narrator: Male



    Story Begins: 4:52

    Wishful Waiting Excerpt:











    It was a sunny day on Ahway Island. The wind was cool and strong, gently carrying blue birds and green leaves around Britney Love's neighborhood. Britney was sitting at the kitchen table, eating her favorite breakfast food: Waffles! Britney loved helping her dad make waffles in the morning. It always meant that the day was going to be extra special.



     



    Today, Britney and her dad were going to the Ahway Island Animal Shelter. In their previous town, Britney’s dad had liked to volunteer at the local shelter and bring Britney along, which meant she got to look at or even carefully play with all the animals. Britney loved animals. She was always so happy to see all the gentle creatures who lived in the shelter. Today, she was even more excited than usual, because it was her first time visiting the Animal Shelter on Ahway Island.

Hi!

This is a great pod. For people who have trouble sleeping, here are some suggestions(proof listen before introducing to children just in case. Everyone’s standards are different!) Sleep with me, the empty bowl, little stories for tiny people, and be calm on away island. I listen to all. So sit back, and(hopefully) enjoy quicker, eusier, and deeper sleep. Sleep well!😊😴
