    Little House in the Big Woods (Chapter 1)

    Little House in the Big Woods (Chapter 1)

    [TW: Story contains imagery of animals being killed, however, not for cruelty but for basic human survival during pioneer times]
    Welcome to this cozy fireside bedtime story with soothing soft voice to doze off to sleep.  This is chapter 1 of the beautiful book 'Little House in the Big Woods'. This book is what started the treasured "Little House Series including 'Little House on the Prairie' by Laura Ingalls Wilder ❤This was a request story and I hope you enjoy it. If you want more chapters then please let me know?  I used to love this series and it is such a joy reading it!
    So light's out and sweet dreamzzz...
    Joanne ❤

    P.S. I personally was torn about sharing the story because I knew it wasn’t vegan friendly   Please don’t misunderstand, I love animals too! Yet, after some reflection, I decided to proceed to share this story because I was able to accept that the killing of animals wasn’t for cruelty but for survival during pioneer times. Similar to many other cultures that needed to survive in the 1800’s and beyond. It was a different life from what we live now and I still feel it is important to learn about the hardships humans had to overcome in order to survive  Also, these stories bring comfort to many listeners who grew up reading and watching these series. My dear friends...please 'do not' listen if you are sensitive to imagery involving the killing of animals. It is never my intention to cause you any harm! Sending love to you all!

Insomnia cure

I’ve been suffering from insomnia since I was a little kid and found Joanne a few months ago. Her story choices and voice are both very soothing and she goes above and beyond by also incorporating sleep hypnosis in some of her episodes. I usually end up conking out within seconds of a story starting.
The addition of fire crackles on the Little House episode was significantly less soothing than most episodes. But I love that she chose that book from my childhood, after introducing me to many stories from cultures outside of my own.

Cured my insomnia!

I’m so grateful for this podcast! It puts me to sleep EVERY TIME. One morning I woke up wondering how the story ended so I replayed it TRYING to stay awake. Nope. I restarted that thing 3 more times and never got through it… until I finally got out of bed and listened to it over breakfast. Thank you Joanne D’Amico for using your sweet voice to help me finally get some rest!
