Five little fish explore the nighttime sea and find a sunken ship. Curious they check it out, surrounded by a blue glow. There's a party on board! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:49 Narrator: Female Party on Board Excerpt: The five little fish swam away from their colorful coral beds. Fish One led the way through a maze of softly swaying plants. Curious to see who or what they would discover the five little fish peeked through the gentle leaves. In the distance, the fish noticed a shadowy shape resting on the ocean floor. The peaceful sea encouraged the fish to explore a little further. Fish Two volunteered to swim ahead and report back to the others. As Fish Two swam closer he realized the shadow was a sunken ship! Fish Two eagerly swam back to the others, giggling and said, “It’s a ship! There will be lots for us to explore tonight!” Today’s Meditation: Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.

It time for a game and James is ready. Remembering that his sister often plays the games he chooses, James tells her, "It's your turn to pick." Narrator: Male Your Turn Story Excerpt: James peered out the window at the soft fluffy snow flakes drifting down from the clouds. As the snowflakes fell into the spot light of the outdoor lamps, each flake gleamed bright white and then settled onto the grass.  The yard was slowly tucked in by the white blanket.  James hoped that the snow would still be there tomorrow morning. Julia walked over to the window, sat next to her little brother and said, “Wow, look at all that snow! I can’t wait to play in it tomorrow!” “That’s what I was thinking!” James replied. “It’s too bad, it’s too late to play in the snow now.  Do you want to play with the blocks?” Julia added. “I would rather paint.” James said. “I don’t know,” Julia said, “that’s pretty messy.  Mom and dad may not want us to start a painting project now.” “I really feel like making art.” James said, turning away from the window to look at his sister. “Well you can make art with blocks.” Julia said, “And it isn’t messy.” James was just about to complain. When he realized that the last few times they had played, Julia had let him pick.  James wondered if she got tired of always doing what he wanted to do.  James took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath) and decided that it was time to let his big sister pick.

Today Dragon visits the beach again. Paula the blue penguin and Benji the bucket have some friendly frogs they are eager for Dragon to meet. Narrator: Female Friendly Frogs Story Excerpt: Paula the blue penguin waddled over to the dragon with a wide grin.  She carried Benji the sand bucket with her.   They both felt excited to see the friendly dragon. “Welcome back!” Paula said. “We’re so glad to see you!” Benji added. The dragon smiled, and lifted the little penguin and the bucket up, giving them a big hug.  The penguin cooed and said “We were hoping you would come back soon.  We have some new friends for you to meet.” The curious dragon set the little blue penguin and the bucket down in the soft sand, took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep  breath) and the flames formed a question mark. “Follow us!” Paula said, swinging Benji back and forth.  She headed to her sand castle. Paula set the bucket down to wait with the dragon as she hurried inside. “Wait here. They’re a little bit shy.” The blue penguin said. The dragon sat down carefully, so as not to frighten anyone and waited with the little blue bucket.

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. 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.

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.

The doll rolled two wheels over to Uli as three race cars hobbled over.  Then Alyssa addressed the cars saying, “Let’s get these new wheels on so you can get back to racing.” Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating in a tranquil pool, safe and relaxed, as the water rocks you gently.

What a beautiful morning! Ella is excited to meet her new friend Kumar for a park picnic, but first It's time for breakfast. What will they do today? Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:09 Narrator: Female Park Picnic Excerpt: Ella skipped all the way to the park. Once the park was in sight Ella began searching for any sign of Kumar. She couldn’t find him anywhere. Ella turned to her dad and asked, “I don’t see Kumar anywhere.” Seeing Ella’s concern, her dad smiled and said, “We’re a little early. Go ahead and play. I’m sure Kumar will be here soon.” Ella was eager to see her friend and didn’t want to wait. Then she realized that she would be able to see more of the park from the swings. Ella hurried over to the swings and pumped her legs back and forth, back and forth. Ella swung higher and higher.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 10:44 Narrator: Female Bubble Boogie Excerpt: Emily giggled, and dipped the wand back in the container.  This time when she pulled the bubble wand out Emily began to spin.  Around and around she went.  Little bubbles drifted around her.  Emily raised the wand above her head as she twirled.  The bubbles floated around her head and slowly circled her, floating down, down, until they popped on the ground.   Emily smiled as she watched little bitty rainbows shine inside each bubble.  Emily continued dancing her bubble boogie, enjoying the moment, when Billy came outside. “What are you doing?” he asked his little sister. “I’m blowing bubbles.”  She said proudly. “You look like you’re dancing to me.”  Billy said, a little puzzled. “That’s how I blow bubbles.”  Emily said smiling.  “Watch this!” Today’s Meditation: Deep dragon breaths are a key part of this guided meditation as you relax your body from your toes up to the top of your head.

On a snowy day as Sidney the snow plow clears the slippery roads, he slides right off and into a ditch. A tow truck arrives to help Sidney with his off road oops. Final 3 Dragon Breaths: Male Narrator "Off Road Oops" Story Excerpt: The snow was falling quickly.  Sidney the Snow Plow peered out into the night, searching for the road.  His headlights reflected off the white flakes.  All he could see was snow.  The little plow had been working hard all day to keep the streets clear, and he was feeling quite tired.  Even though he couldn’t see very well, Sidney decided to drive a little faster.  After all, the faster he drove, the faster he would be back home and in his garage, right?  As he picked up speed, Sidney noticed the road felt more slippery.  Oh well, he could handle it. He was a snow plow.  So Sidney kept moving. The snow, flew off of the plow and onto the side of the road.  The little snow plow wondered why he hadn’t thought of this sooner.  He looked back in the mirror and noticed that there were some spots of snow on the road behind him.  He wasn’t getting all the snow off the road at this speed. But, most of the road was clear, so Sidney decided to keep moving. The snow filled the air in front of him, and it became more difficult for the plow to stay steady on the road.  Still Sidney kept his speed up. Suddenly, the road felt really slippery, and Sidney’s tires couldn’t hold on.  He slid right off the road and into a ditch.

As the Sparkling Train completes its evening route the passengers notice snow statues all over the island. Where did they come from? Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:28 Narrator: Female Snow Statues Excerpt: The Sparkling Train wondered what all the commotion was about and began to look more closely at the land around the tracks. At first all the train could see was little bumps on the surface of the snow. Maybe the snow blanket had rolled over some bushes? It was hard to see what had excited the passengers. The Train decided to slow down a little since it was running ahead of schedule. The train slowed its roll and looked out at the scenery. Up ahead in the park, the Train noticed more bumps on the smooth snow. Rolling closer and closer the Train could see more details now that it wasn’t zipping by. Amazed, the train realized that the little bumps were all snow statues. Today's Meditation: Imagine floating on a cloud, and relax into the feeling of lightness.

Holly, Hawk, and Herb the airplanes are excited as they get ready for the air show. Each plane will share their specialty. Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:10 Narrator: Female The Air Show Excerpt: Holly, Hawk and Herb felt a sense of adventure as they thought about what the day held in store for them.  Today, the three little airplanes were flying in an air show.   It was something completely new for all of them.  Holly felt excited to bring some delight to the people watching, Herb felt happy to be with his friends, and that his flight would be low to the ground.  No high loops for him.  Hawk felt thrilled that he was about to show everyone what he could do.  The three little airplanes waited eagerly for their turn in the show.  “Let’s take some deep dragon breaths so we are calm and ready.”  Holly suggested. “That’s a great idea.”  Herb said.  “I know I could use a little extra focus.” “That’s right we want to be safe, and have fun.” Hawk added. The three little planes took deep dragon breaths, in and out (deep breath), and pictured their routine in their minds.  They took another deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath), and wished the people watching a delightful day.  With one more deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath), the planes felt focused and ready for their big moment. They heard the announcer call out “Now, put your hands together for Holly, Hawk, and Herb as they get ready for their first flight in this air show!”  It was time!

Holly, Hawk, and Herb the airplanes are excited as they get ready for the air show. Each plane will share their specialty. Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new stories “Special Day” and "Park Picnic" this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “The Air Show,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:10 Narrator: Female The Air Show Excerpt: Holly, Hawk and Herb felt a sense of adventure as they thought about what the day held in store for them.  Today, the three little airplanes were flying in an air show.   It was something completely new for all of them.  Holly felt excited to bring some delight to the people watching, Herb felt happy to be with his friends, and that his flight would be low to the ground.  No high loops for him.  Hawk felt thrilled that he was about to show everyone what he could do.  The three little airplanes waited eagerly for their turn in the show.  “Let’s take some deep dragon breaths so we are calm and ready.”  Holly suggested. “That’s a great idea.”  Herb said.  “I know I could use a little extra focus.” “That’s right we want to be safe, and have fun.” Hawk added. The three little planes took deep dragon breaths, in and out (deep breath), and pictured their routine in their minds.  They took another deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath), and wished the people watching a delightful day.  With one more deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath), the planes felt focused and ready for their big moment. They heard the announcer call out “Now, put your hands together for Holly, Hawk, and Herb as they get ready for their first flight in this air show!”  It was time!

Connor the cleaner fish has a conundrum. Sean the shark has a toothache. Connor wonders whether it's safe to clean the shark's mouth. What will he do? Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 5:28 Narrator: Male Connor’s Conundrum Excerpt: Connor twirled around his home to warm up for his busy day. Then the little cleaner fish zipped out the door. Connor zigged and zagged just outside the coral showing off his bright pink and blue stripes. The shop was open for the day. The little cleaner fish stopped dancing to see what customers were arriving. A large shadow slowly covered Connor and the pink coral. As the large sea creature swam towards Connor, the cleaner fish circled and danced. A spot of white shimmered on the grey fish’s triangular fin. Connor now knew who his first customer was, Sean the shark! Today's Meditation: Gently sway like the graceful willow tree in today's meditation.

Cody coyote is eager to join his siblings in their pup games. What will they play today? Will Cody play his favorite game. Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 11:03 Narrator: Male Pup Games Excerpt: The night sky twinkled with the light of stars, while a sliver of the moon smiled down on the earth.  In their cozy den the furry pile of coyote pups began to stir.  One after another, each little pup stretched and yawned. Cody woke with his brother’s outstretched paw touching his nose. The little pup batted Cade’s paw away and stretched too.  Soon all the coyote pups were wide awake and ready to play.  The pups bounced and rolled around the den until their mom encouraged them to go outside. Cody bounded outside the cave and howled hello to the moon.  His brothers and sisters followed him. Cody ran over to his brother Cade and the two bounced up, their paws meeting in the air.  Casey, Claire, and Clyde came running over to join them.

Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Dragon Adventure,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:59 Narrator: Female Dragon Adventure Story Excerpt: Wondering if the train would come back, the dragon decided to relax on the beach and wait.    Landing on the soft warm sand, the dragon sighed happily.  This would be a wonderful spot to rest.  The dragon, tucking toes into the cozy sand, settled in.  In the meantime, the dragon listened to the waves crashing on the sand, and looked around at the peaceful beach.  There was something blue in the sand.  Puzzled, the dragon reached over and pulled it out.  It was a sand bucket, great for making castles.  The bucket smiled at the dragon and said, “Thanks! I thought I would be stuck there all night!  I’m Benji.  I haven’t seen you around before.” Today's Meditation: Imagine floating in a tranquil pool, safe and relaxed, as the water rocks you gently.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:48 Narrator: Male Best Babysitter Story Excerpt: Fully absorbed in the suspense of his book it took a while for James to realize that his parents were acting a bit differently. Julia sat down next to him and asked. “Do you know what’s going on with mom and dad?” James looked up from his book and watched as their mom zipped from the kitchen, wrote a note on the counter, and then went back to the bedroom. Their dad ran into the laundry room and came out with a pair of socks. “I don’t know. They seem like they’re in a hurry.” James said. Then he looked at Julia as they realized together, “They must be going out tonight!” “Oh no!” James added as Julia said, “We must be getting a babysitter.” “I don’t know why. I’m not a baby.” James said. He hopped off the couch and ran to see if he could convince their parents to change their minds. Julia followed right behind.

Please enjoy “A Cheerful Family,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:05 Narrator: Male A Cheerful Family Excerpt: It would be a long drive, so Max tried to think of something to do.  “Why don’t we play the alphabet game?” he said. “That sounds like fun!”  Mia replied.  And Max, Mia, their mom and dad, began looking for things that began with the letter A.  Mia found an airplane flying overhead, mom found an apple tree,  Max saw animals outside, and dad counted eight arms inside the car.  Once everyone had found something beginning with A, they went on to find something beginning with B. Mom was first this time.  She found a bright red barn.  Mia proudly spotted a bicycle.  Dad saw a boat, as they crossed a long bridge over the water, and Max was excited when he saw a buffalo.

Blanka the plush bunny is excited to be a surprise gift. As she is wrapped in colorful paper the fluffy yellow stuffed animal wonders who she will meet. Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:53 Narrator: Female Surprise Gift Excerpt: All the brilliant colors reminded the soft bunny of a birthday party. The person briefly sat down and picked up the spool of bright blue ribbon. He rolled out a piece across the table and then cut the ribbon. He gently tied the sparkling ribbon in a bow around the toy bunny’s neck. Blanka loved the blue ribbon, it shimmered in the light. The person left the table to retrieve something else. The toy bunny wondered what he was getting now. He came back with a cardboard box. The person gently picked up the soft bunny and placed her inside the box. Blanka looked around, her head and ears fully visible, above the edges of the box. This cardboard box was too small. The person lifted the toy bunny back out of the box and removed it from the table.

Bliss the blanket gets a bath in the washing machine while the little girl plays. "Where's my blanket?" she wonders at bedtime. Will Bliss be dry in time?

Please enjoy “Where’s My Blanket,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:29 Narrator: Female Where’s My Blanket? Excerpt: Sunlight warmed the little girl’s bed.  A grayish looking blanket, folded with love, was nestled up to a fluffy pillow.  It would be a while before the little girl returned from her first day at camp, so Bliss blanket had plenty of time to relax.  Just as she settled in, the little girl’s dad came in the room holding a laundry basket. He picked the little blanket up and said, “We should have just enough time to get you clean.” The little blanket was usually with the little girl, whether she was sleeping or playing.  So Bliss had gotten a bit dingy.  She didn’t even know what color she had once been.  The blanket’s lace edges had been worn off long ago.  Now that the little girl was away, her dad had decided it was time for her blanket to be washed.  So Bliss rode along in the laundry basket, wondering what it would be like in the washing machine.

Winfield the Wheelchair and Brian experience sensory delight as they share beautiful colors, scents, and sounds with Javier. Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:48 Narrator: Male Sensory Delight Excerpt: Brian and Winfield rolled forward onto the wide path towards the source of the soothing sounds. The families made their way down the path, taking their time and enjoying the beauty of all the plants. Up ahead Winfield spotted a dot of red zipping around the raised beds. As he rolled closer the wheelchair discovered that the zippy red dot was a hummingbird sipping nectar from some bright orange trumpet flowers. Their grass like leaves flowed over the edges of their raised bed. Winfield stopped so that Brian would have the opportunity to touch their leaves. As he held the leaves of the trumpet flowers, the little red hummingbird hovered directly in front of Brian. Javier gasped, impressed that the bird had flown so close to Brian. Brian giggled, happy to interact with the cheerful little hummingbird. Today’s Meditation: Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.

Please enjoy “Cloud Caper,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:29 Narrator: Male Cloud Caper Excerpt: The little fluffy cloud drifted across the sky.  Claude smiled at the earth below him. He enjoyed bringing water to all the plants, animals, and people.  They seemed so refreshed and happy after a little rain, and Claude had been giving them plenty. For days, the little cloud had rained and rained.  Now, all the plants were a bright green, the lakes were full, and there were even plenty of puddles to splash in.  The little cloud listened to hear how the plants, animals, and people were doing. The people grumbled as Claude drifted by, “I wish it would stop raining.” Claude was surprised and a little disappointed.  He thought the people would enjoy splashing in the puddles he had made.  The little cloud took a deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath) and decided to see what the animals thought.

Five fascinating fish explore the night time sea away from their coral beds. What will they find tonight in the star lit waters? Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 9:21 Narrator: Female Fascinating Fish Excerpt: The five little fish swam away from their colorful coral beds. Fish One led the way through a maze of softly swaying sea plants. The five little fish peeked through the gentle leaves, curious to see who or what they would find today. A shadow floated over the five little fish and they looked up. The mysterious shape glided across the water without any flippers. Fish Two decided to get a closer look and zipped up towards the gentle shadow. Fish Two noticed the shadow had a ridge traveling along the underside of the shape, then zipped back to share the discovery with the others. “I’m not sure what it is yet. It might be a big fish. There’s a fin underneath.” Fish Two said. Today’s Meditation: Feel calm and relaxed as you send kind energy to your heart.

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Dragon Fire” on Monday. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Imagination Soup,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 10:45 Narrator: Female Doctor Mia Excerpt: Rogelio, Helen, and Brianna played tag for a while.  Each of them had a chance to be “it.”  Then they decided to have a drink of water and rest for a little bit.  As they rested, they chatted.  Helen and Brianna learned about Rogelio, and Rogelio learned about Helen and Brianna.  One of the things they learned about each other is that they all enjoyed being part of a play.  So they decided to put on a play.  First they needed to figure out what their play would be about.  Helen loved being outside so she thought the story should be about the forest, and the forest animals.  Brianna loved things that sparkled and shined, so she though the play should be about finding a precious jewel.  Rogelio liked imagining new and fantastic worlds so he wanted a play about a dragon.  The trio talked, each one explaining why their idea was the best.

Dragon notices the forest animals shivering and uses dragon fire to create a cozy campfire outside of the cave for everyone to share. Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:17 Narrator: Male Dragon Fire Excerpt: Dragon smiled at the animals, and took a deep breath in and out, (deep breath). Gentle flames flickered out of Dragon’s mouth towards the twigs and leaves. The kindling began to glow as fire rose from them. Flames took off from the twigs running to the branches, and finally they began to settle on the logs. Crackling sounds filled the air as smoke floated up to the sky. The animals had seen the Dragon fire before but wondered what this was. Then they felt the warmth spilling out from the fire on the logs. They stopped huddling together. The raccoons left their partially made shelter and scampered over to the fire. They basked in the glow and held their hand out warming them. The bunnies quickly hopped over taking their place around the dancing fire, followed by the squirrels. Today’s Meditation: Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.

Dragon notices the forest animals shivering and uses dragon fire to create a cozy campfire outside of the cave for everyone to share. Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:17 Narrator: Male Dragon Fire Excerpt: Dragon smiled at the animals, and took a deep breath in and out, (deep breath). Gentle flames flickered out of Dragon’s mouth towards the twigs and leaves. The kindling began to glow as fire rose from them. Flames took off from the twigs running to the branches, and finally they began to settle on the logs. Crackling sounds filled the air as smoke floated up to the sky. The animals had seen the Dragon fire before but wondered what this was. Then they felt the warmth spilling out from the fire on the logs. They stopped huddling together. The raccoons left their partially made shelter and scampered over to the fire. They basked in the glow and held their hand out warming them. The bunnies quickly hopped over taking their place around the dancing fire, followed by the squirrels. Today’s Meditation: Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.

Soon the forest opened up to a sidewalk.  They followed the sidewalk back to the street and saw train tracks ahead!  Billy was excited! He might see a real live train!  Would it be anything like his favorite toy engine?  Emily beamed at her big brother.  She was thrilled to see the train tracks too.  Emily liked trains, just as much as her big brother.  “Shall we wait here a bit to see the train go by?”  Dad said, pointing to a bench. “Yes!” Billy and Emily exclaimed.

Today’s story was written to fulfill an Ahway Islander’s request for a story about a pediatrician. Mia and Max are feeling tired and stuffy today. Feeling worried mom and dad call the doctor. Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:46 Narrator: Female Doctor Mia Excerpt: Dad came into the room with a cheerful, “Good morning!” He took a look at his usually upbeat children, and saw they were slouched and bundled up. They both looked at him and replied, “good morning,” with a couple of weak smiles followed by a chorus of sneezing and coughing. Feeling a little worried, he walked over to Mia and gently felt her forehead. Then he put the back of his hand on Max’s forehead. Both kids felt hot. Dad picked up his phone and began dialing. “Who are you calling?” Max asked. “Your pediatrician.” Dad replied. “I think you are sick.” “Oh no.” Mia said, eyes wide. “I don’t need the doctor I’m fine.” She stood up quickly, and then, feeling a little dizzy, sat right back down. “I’m fine too.” Max said. Mom popped into the room and said, “You both need to go to the doctor. I’m calling your school to tell them you’re sick.” Today’s Meditation: Rest among the twinkling stars with today's meditation.

Today, with the power of imagination, the kids take Chance the cardboard box on a jungle voyage. What animals will they see? Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:30 Narrator: Male Jungle Voyage Excerpt: With that the little girl piloted the cardboard box up off of the carpet. Chance hovered as their imaginations erased the ceiling. Then up, up, up they went, straight through the grey clouds without a drop of rain touching them. The girl watched for lush trees and plants through the openings in the clouds. Soon she saw something promising and piloted the cardboard helicopter down towards the ground. As Chance descended through the tree canopy, he saw a river directly below him. As soon as the cardboard box touched the river the twinkling rotor retracted and Chance transformed into a boat. Now it was the boy’s turn to captain the ship. The boy steered the cardboard boat along the gently flowing river. He pointed out a large log floating in the river. As they moved closer to it, the boy noticed the log was smiling.

Wade the inner tube splashes and smiles as he plays on the lazy river and even tries the water slide with a new friend. How will he like it? Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Pirate Queen” on Monday. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 11:06 Narrator: Male Splashes and Smiles Excerpt: Wade wondered what would happen next.  Then the boy carried the raft right over to the water slide.  And this is what Wade was most worried about.  Up, up, up, they went.  The worried raft noticed all the twists and bends in the slide.  As they waited in line Wade took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath) and told himself everything would be fine.  After all, he had worried about both waterfalls on the lazy river, and both were completely safe, and a bit fun.  He liked hearing the boy laugh, and judging from the look on the boy’s face this slide would make him laugh a lot.  As a result, the raft was feeling much better as he reached the top of the slide. Now He knew everything would be fine.  They would follow the rules, and have fun. The boy set the raft down at the top of the slide, sat on top, and waited for the lifeguard to say it was OK to go.  Then the little boy held on tight. Wade slid from side to side, back and forth, splashing through the water on the slide.  With each turn the raft glided up the side of the slide, and then back down.  The boy was laughing now.  Finally, they reached the straight  part of the slide, slipping down into the water. Wade landed with a splash!  The boy laughed and laughed, and the raft smiled.  It had been fun.  There was nothing to worry about.

Today, Allie is a pirate queen. After a quick nap, she and her crew search the park for clues to find the buried treasure. Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:54 Narrator: Female Pirate Queen Excerpt: Allie giggled as Owen approached, feeling excited for her game to begin. Owen had a magenta scarf tied on his head, looking very piratey. When he found Allie he smiled and said, “Arrrr, I got your message, your majesty, and wore me best.” In response, Allie laughed, “You look great, me hearty!” From a distance, they heard a shout, “There be the Pirate Queen!” Helen had arrived. Her purple eye patch and scarf designated her as one of the crew. Andy ran up to Helen and added, “Arrr.” His red and white striped shirt and scarf shouted pirate to any onlookers. “Now that my crew be here, let’s find some pirate treasure.” Allie said. “Yeah!” Owen, Andy, and Helen shouted. Allie pulled a gold rock out from her pocket to show her fellow pirates. “This be what we’re looking for.” “Where do we start, your majesty?” the crew asked. The pirate queen grinned, and held up a piece of paper. “Here’s our first clue.” There was a drawing on it and some writing that no one could read. “What does it say?” Helen asked.

Tanner toad greets a new friend with the customary "Hello!" Since the other toad doesn't respond, Tanner tries a different approach. Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Batty Dragon” on Monday. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Hello!” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:36 Narrator: Male Hello! Excerpt: It was time for a break in the shade. Tanner knew where to go, his favorite spot under the ferns.  There was enough shade there to cool off, with a little bit of sunlight filtering through the airy leaves.  So, off Tanner hop, hop, hopped over to the ferns.  When he got there, he saw another toad in his spot, facing away.  Tanner hadn’t seen this toad before, and became excited.  Maybe he would make a new friend!  Eagerly the little toad hopped over to the fern and said, “Hi! I’m Tanner!”  The other toad stayed in place with his back to Tanner.  Tanner felt sad the toad was ignoring him and then annoyed.  Why did this toad think he could sit in Tanner’s favorite spot and then ignore him.  That was just rude.  Tanner decided he would tell the other toad how he felt, when suddenly there was a big rumbling sound. A truck drove by on the street. It was so loud, that it hurt Tanner’s head.  He held a big leaf over his head to block the noise and watched the truck go by.  Tanner felt relieved after the loud noise rumbled away, and sighed.  Then he looked back at the other toad, who was still facing the other direction.  Now Tanner was puzzled.  That was a really loud noise, why hadn’t the other toad even looked?  Could the other toad hear it?

Dragon notices something zipping across the night sky. The little bat invites Dragon for a snack and our batty dragon zig-zags along. Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 5:34 Narrator: Male Batty Dragon Excerpt: In the fading sunlight a dark shape zipped around against the sky. The shape quickly flew one way and then another, zig-zagging across the field. Dragon wondered what it could be. As the sky darkened and Dragon lost track of the zig-zagging shape. Soon the stars and moon sparkled brightly above. Dragon walked along staring up at the twinkling sky with a smile of contentment. Occasionally something covered up a few stars here, a few stars there. Then, as Dragon wondered what was blocking the stars, something zipped right up to Dragon’s nose and hovered in front. “Oh, hi! I’m Bertie.” Dragon heard the little bat say, wings flapping. Dragon smiled and nodded. Today’s Meditation: Gently sway like the graceful willow tree in today's meditation.

Anna watches the twinkling sky thinking she is star gazing. Anna watches with curiosity as some of the lights flash and move around. What are they? Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Curious Island” on Monday. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “The Twinkling Sky” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:12 Narrator: Female The Twinkling Sky Excerpt: Anna lied on her back in the grass watching the sky.  As the night fell, the moon glowed and the stars twinkled their hello.  The little girl took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath), full of wonder at the beauty unfolding in the sky above her.  Then she saw it.  A blinking yellow light hovered in the sky above her.  Anna wondered what it was.  She watched as the blinking yellow light whirled around, dancing on the breeze, and then up into the branches of the willow tree.  Anna hoped that the light would come back. After a moment of watching the willow’s branches gently sway, back and forth, back and forth, Anna looked back up at the moon.  It was a perfect circle tonight, and bright white.  Then it happened again.  A yellow blinking light hovered above her.  Wait, there were two, no three.  More and more blinking yellow lights filled the sky, circling each other and dancing.  Now Anna sat up.  What were they?  She waved her hand in the air and the lights gracefully moved away. Anna stood up.  Little yellow lights blinked around her.  She decided to catch one.  Maybe then she would find out what it was.  Anna gently moved her hands, and scooped a light out of the air, quickly covering it with her other hand.  Slowly she opened her hands to peek inside.  There was a little black and red bug with black wings resting on Anna’s palm.  It looked up at her inquisitively.  Anna had never seen anything like it.  She closed her hands and ran to her parents. Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating on a cloud, and relax into the feeling of lightness. Looking for a way to help your child with emotional regulation?  You'll find support on Ahway Island.

Hoping to share Dragon magic with the people, Dragon takes some deep breaths and ponders how to meet people without frightening them. Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Changing Winds” on Monday. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Today we’re sharing our very first Dragon story! Please enjoy “Dragon Magic!” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 10:50 Narrator: Male Dragon Magic Excerpt: Still, the curious dragon wondered why people acted so strangely.  A magnificent tail flipped back and forth, back and forth as the little dragon thought and thought.  The dragon was bigger than the people. Remembering that the animals had also been afraid at first, the dragon wondered if size was the reason.  Then the dragon thought about what had changed, so that the bunnies, deer, birds, frogs, toads, turtles, and bears felt comfortable.  The dragon waited patiently and quietly. Eventually, the animals approached.  Once one came near, others felt safe.  Oh, that’s right, the animals worried the dragon would eat them.  Was that what the people were worried about?  Yuck.  What a silly thought.  A person couldn’t possibly taste as good as roasted brussel sprouts, or roasted carrots, or roasted sweet potatoes; certainly not as good as an apple, orange or banana.  Having figured out the source of the fear, the gentle dragon knew waiting patiently was a good idea.  Fortunately, the wait was almost over. 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.

During a relaxing sail Sandy the sailboat notices the changing winds. To keep her crew safe from the storm, she heads back to the harbor. Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 9:31 Narrator: Male Changing Winds Excerpt: Sandy motored away from the harbor to a spot where she could put up her sails. The colorful stretches of fabric filled up with wind until they were stretched tight. Sandy could feel the wind moving her through the water and took a deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath) relaxing in the peace of the morning. The wind carried the sailboat out and Sandy enjoyed gliding across the water. Sandy looked around. She loved to gaze at the deep turquoise blue water. Then the sailboat noticed the sky looked different. On one side, the sky was growing dark. On her other side it was very bright. Sandy knew immediately what was happening. A storm was on its way.

Rumina the rainbow is looking for a way to bring a color surprise to the world below the clouds. Will she find an opening? Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new stories “Sky Dragon” and “All Smiles” this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Color Surprise!” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:56 Narrator: Female Color Surprise Excerpt: Rumina looked and looked and looked.  The clouds were squished tightly together.  She just couldn’t find a spot to peek through, with the sunlight.  The clouds rolled on, forming peaks and valleys.  Rumina got an idea.  Maybe if she climbed to the top of a tall cloud, she could find an opening below.  So she looked around for a tall cloud, and she found it.  It was enormous, a mountain of fluff, towering over the others.  Surely, the little rainbow could see everything from there. So Rumina climbed up, up, and up the magnificent cloud.  She was working hard and needed a break, so the little rainbow stopped on a flat portion halfway up and took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath).  Rumina thought about smiling people and animals, and glowing plants!  She could do this.  Rumina would find a way to bring some cheerfulness and hope to the land below the cloud cover. Finally, the little rainbow reached the top, and peered across the puffy landscape.  She noticed on the other side of the mountainous cloud, there was a large opening!  Sunshine was streaming through it, lighting up the earth.  That was the spot to bring some color to the world! Today’s Meditation: Today, enjoy the feeling of your body relaxing into the warm sand on a sunny beach.

The ocean is filled with music. Two rockin' sharks, Shayla and Santiago, search out the source of the beats and, when they find it, dance. Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:55 Narrator: Female Rockin’ Sharks Excerpt: “Do you hear that?” Shayla asked Santiago. “Yes. I’ve never heard anything like it. What do you think it is?” Santiago shark asked. “I don’t know.” Then a grin crept across her face and she said, “I think I like it. Do you want to see if we can find it?” The other shark smiled back and said, “That sounds like fun. Let’s go!” Shayla and Santiago circled around each other trying to discover to the source of the mysterious sound. After a couple of circles, both sharks knew the direction of the sound. So, they exchanged knowing smiles and swam in that direction. As they approached the source of the sound, it changed. Now the sharks could hear music, faintly at first.

After a little nap Dragon discovers a simple smile can brighten up anyone's day. Before long all of Ahway Island is smiling. Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:44 Narrator: Female All Smiles Excerpt: Dragon wondered whether smiling at others always worked that way and decided to try the theory out. Dragon landed on the forest floor. Carrie Cardinal rested in a nearby bush. The bright red bird looked over at Dragon just in time to see Dragon smile at her. Carrie grinned in response. Encouraged by the second smile Dragon began to walk further down the path to share a smile with another animal. Before long Dragon found Odin the owl. Though the owl was sleeping, at the sound of rustling leaves Odin opened his eyes. Dragon smiled at the drowsy owl. Odin returned the grin and drifted back to sleep. Now Dragon felt certain that the birds would respond with a smile. Next Dragon would see if other animals would respond the same way.

Dragon follows the friendly birds for a fun flight. Our sky dragon flies even higher and joins the air craft in their games. Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:22 Narrator: Male Sky Dragon Excerpt: Above the trees Dragon admired the beautiful island and noticed something new down below. The construction crew had been busy, Dragon could tell. There was a bridge leading to another island. Dragon thought about exploring it, but before Dragon could head that direction a gentle rhythm filled the air. Dragon smiled, familiar with that beat, and turned to see Harmony helicopter. She was flying along with Hawk the red airplane. The two flew together with a similar grace and accuracy as Gerry and Carrie. Dragon waved hello and headed towards the aircraft. In no time the three friends reached each other and began dancing across the sky. Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating in a tranquil pool, safe and relaxed, as the water rocks you gently.

Today James and Julia are going to a parade! Julia is a little worried that it will be too loud for her brother. How will James handle the excitement? Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our newest story on Monday, “Buried Treasure.” Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “A Parade!” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:26 Narrator: Male A Parade Excerpt: A warm breeze ruffled the curtain in James’ bedroom, allowing sunlight to flutter into the room.  James opened his eyes and stretched.  Then he remembered, today was the parade!  He hopped out of bed and got dressed.  His sister Julia was already eating her breakfast.  She was excited too.   James smiled and said, “I can’t wait to see the parade!” “Me too!” Julia exclaimed!  “Do you have earplugs?  It might get kind of loud.” “No, I’ll be fine.  I don’t want to look weird.” James said. “I think you should bring them just in case.”  His big sister said gently. James pretended he hadn’t heard her and asked, “What is your favorite part of the parade?” Julia stopped mentioning earplugs, and responded. “I love seeing all the people waving from the colorful floats.  What’s you’re favorite part?” James smiled and said. “I love all the different vehicles.  Do you think there will be fire trucks?” “I’m sure there will be some.”  Julia said.  She decided to pack some extra earplugs just in case her brother became really uncomfortable. They finished their breakfast and walked with their parents to the parade route.  As their mom and dad set up their folding chairs in the shade, James found a spot on the curb in front of them. He waved for Julia to join him. “This is a good spot!” she said grinning ear to ear. Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating in a tranquil pool, safe and relaxed, as the water rocks you gently.

Allie gets ready for treasure hunt with her friends by hiding pirate clues around the park to lead them to the buried treasure. Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:01 Narrator: Female Buried Treasure Excerpt: As soon as they got to the park Allie looked around, to see if anyone was already there. She wanted to be sure no one saw where she buried the treasure and set the clues. The swings were empty. No one was on the slide or the monkey bars. Even the ball fields were quiet. There wasn’t a sign of Andy, Helen or Owen. Allie smiled mischievously. First, she would bury the pirate treasure chest. Allie skipped to the sand box and using the sand scooper she dug a hole big enough to fit the chest. Allie set the chest into the open pit and then removed five golden rocks. She gently moved the sand back to cover the top of the closed chest. Soon the sandbox looked as if the sands had never been moved.  Allie gently placed one of her golden rocks in the sand above the chest.

Halle the hummingbird is feeling hungry. She goes searching for sweets among the plants. The little hummingbird sees something red. Will she find a treat? Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new stories this week, “Best Balance” and “Polite Parrot!” Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Welcome to Favorite Friday! Please enjoy “Searching for Sweets” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 10:06 Narrator: Female Searching for Sweets Excerpt: Halle began her search for flowers.  She especially enjoyed the nectar of red flowers and hoped she would be able to find some.  The little hummingbird hovered in the air, and looked around.  She saw lush green grass, and deep green ivy winding around and climbing the trees.  There were lots of green plants, but she didn’t see any red flowers.  Halle zipped on, zigging and zagging, until she found a garden. The little hummingbird hovered as she took in the view.  The plants were lined up in neat little rows.  Halle noticed that the garden had cucumber plants, with little cucumbers resting on the ground, busy growing.  There were broccoli plants.  Dark green leaves surrounded the round clusters of broccoli.  Leafy spinach filled its row, and orange carrots barely peaked out of the ground.  The vegetables were beautiful, but Halle needed some nectar to eat. Just then the little hummingbird spotted something red.  She zipped in closer, hoping it was a flower.   Halle hovered over the red, her wings moving so quickly they were just a blur.  It was a tomato.  Halle was disappointed.  The little hummingbird took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath) and decided to keeping looking for flowers. 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.

Hello everyone!  Today we have a bonus episode! For a little fun on Talk like a Pirate Day we have a new story. We hope you enjoy “Polite Parrot!” Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:03 Narrator: Male Polite Parrot Excerpt: As the sailboat wondered where Zig-Zag had gone she spotted a bright red bird zig-zagging her way. She smiled and announced to the others in her best pirate voice. “Be ye ready? I spy a scurvy pirate bird on the wind.” Manny the motorboat followed her gaze to the red bird. Sure enough, there were blue and yellow feathers on the bird’s wings and a tell-tale patch of black feathers over one eye. Manny responded eagerly in his best pirate voice.  “Aye! Zig Zag be returning to seek out the lost pirate booty.” Sandy the sailboat had been teaching all the boats how to speak Pirate ever since Zig-Zag’s last arrival. She giggled as the pirate bird grew closer and asked, “Yarrrr me hearties. Is everyone shipshape and ready for an adventure?” “Shiver me Timbers.” Teagan the tugboat said. “Be Zig-Zag returning this day?” Almost in response the pirate parrot landed on Sandy’s bow and said, “Good morning, fine yacht.

Sig the skateboard has the best balance, and waits eagerly to play. But today the skateboard is playing with a new learner. How will they do? Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:00 Narrator: Female Best Balance Excerpt: Sig giggled too, ready to play. The girl placed the skateboard on the ground and stepped on, one foot on a yellow-green swirl and the other on a blue-purple one. Sig wobbled back and forth, as the girl balanced herself. Sig began to feel nervous, worrying that the girl might fall off. The skateboard tried her best to hold steady, but as the girl wobbled, so did Sig. Then after one big wobble the girl stumbled off of the skateboard. Sig took a deep dragon breath in and out, (deep breath) as she saw that the girl was ok.

Wakely Waverunner heads out to play in the swirling waters of the mouth of the harbor. Between the waves and the boats entering and leaving, Wakely does the wave jump boogie. Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story, “Ronald’s Turn”, Monday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Welcome to Favorite Friday! Please enjoy “Wave Jump Boogie” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:04 Narrator: Male Wave Jump Boogie Excerpt: The trailer carried Wakely all the way to the lake, and backed down a steep ramp.  As he rolled down the ramp, water rose up, from covering the wheels of the trailer, to tickling Wakely’s belly.  The water splashed under and around him, and the little wave runner relaxed.  His rider released Wakely from the trailer, and he slowly drifted next to the dock.  He enjoyed floating.  Any worries the little wave runner may have had, drifted away with the waves. His rider tugged Wakely over and snugged him to the dock.  Now the little wave runner waited for his rider to park the truck and trailer.  He was very excited to play on the lake, and could hardly wait to get started.  All this waiting was difficult, so Wakely took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath) and then smiled.  The little wave runner realized that waiting gave him some time to just enjoy the sensation of floating.  Wakely rocked gently as the water rolled back and forth, back and forth underneath him.  The lake seemed pretty calm today. Wakely was just getting in to the rhythm of the water when his rider returned.  His motor rumbled and the little wave runner moved away from the dock.  Wakely wanted to zip right out into the lake, but he knew he needed to move slowly in the entrance to the harbor, and watch for other boats.  So, he took his time and carefully made his way out to the lake.  Once the little wave runner had made it out onto the lake, he turned up his engine and began zipping around in an open area. Today’s Meditation: Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe. Looking for a way to help your child with emotional regulation?  You'll find them on Ahway Island.

The bridge project is almost done. Today is Ronald's turn to shine. The roller gets to put the finishing touches on the bridge! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 9:05 Narrator: Male Ronald’s Turn Excerpt: “We get to finish the bridge today!” Dizzy said. “Are you excited Ronald?” Ronald smiled and said, “Absolutely!” Although he started to feel a little sad. That was the second time someone mentioned that the bridge would be finished today. It would be completed, and the roller had hardly done anything. Ronald took a deep breath, in and out (deep breath) and concentrated on the fun he would have working with the team today. While Ronald talked himself back up, the contractor joined the construction vehicles. “Good morning, everyone. Today, as I’m sure you all know, we’ll be finishing up the bridge. Barry the Barge will meet us at the water again and is ready to carry you across. Connor, Barry will help you place the slabs that Dizzy poured last week. Ellie, Barry will carry you, Danny and Dory to add the asphalt. Ronald, you’ll finish up by smoothing the road out. Dizzy, we don’t have anything for you today. We’ll see you when we get back.” Then with a smile the Contractor said. “OK! Let’s get this done.” Today’s Meditation: Feel your muscles relax as you check in with your body from head to toe.

Lisa and her mom were on their way in!  Now, they just needed to find a place to set the beach bag and their stuff.  Lisa’s mom looked around and spotted an open area, with a giant umbrella for shade.  She held Lisa’s hand, and began to make her way there. As they weaved through the crowd, Lisa was bumped and jostled a little bit.  Sometimes, people said, “Oh, excuse me!” and sometimes they didn’t seem to know they had bumped into her. Although she was a little uncomfortable, Lisa understood that it was just that crowded.  When Lisa and her mom reached the spot in the shade, Lisa took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath).  She felt better now that she had more space.  Just then another girl, and her mom, squeezed through the crowd to reach the shady spot. “Hi, I’m Lydia.”  The girl said. “I’m Lisa.” Lisa replied.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:26 Narrator: Female Dragon's Bus Ride Excerpt: Then, Dragon noticed Owen, Andy, and Allie waiting on the street. They were laughing and smiling. Spotting Dragon, they waved. Smiled and waving back Dragon felt relieved to find them. Dragon wondered why the kids were standing at the corner holding bags. Dragon decided to travel a little further from the forest to find out what was happening. After all, things had been going pretty well and Dragon was feeling more confident. As Dragon began to walk over to Allie, Owen, and Andy a bright yellow bus drove up. The bus stopped right in front of them and held out a stop sign, so Dragon stopped. Dragon could see James and Julia already sitting on the bus along with Ian, Mike, Rogelio, Helen, Brianna, Luis, Lydia, Alice, Anora, Max and Mia.

The air is filled with the song of buzzy bugs. Simon cicada wakes up from his nap, climbs out of his shell and searches for a friend. Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story, “Dock Dog”, Monday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Welcome to Favorite Friday! Please enjoy “Buzzy Bugs” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:35 Narrator: Male Buzzy Bugs Excerpt: Light streamed onto Simon’s face as he broke through the surface.  The little Cicada blinked, to get accustomed to the brightness.  As Simon pulled himself out of the earth, his body began to feel tight and tough.  He shook off the dirt, and looked around. He saw bright green grass, and a thick, sturdy tree trunk.  The little Cicada had emerged right next to a tree.  Simon decided to climb it, and see what else was around him. Slowly, Simon pulled himself up the trunk of the tree.  His body felt tighter and tighter.  Simon had grown a lot while resting in the dirt!  He needed to leave his armor behind.  So the little Cicada anchored himself on the trunk, and began to squeeze out of his shell. Simon blinked again, as his fresh eyes saw the details of the flaky bark on the trunk.  The little cicada was curious to see how much he had changed, as he relaxed in the earth.  Simon looked at his body.  He had delicate wings on his back, and was now a bright green instead of the brownish color he had been before.  Next to him, his armor was hanging on to the trunk of the tree.  It was a little weird to see the mold of his old body, just hanging there.  He fluttered his wings a bit to dry them off, and then stretched them.  As soon as his wings were dry, Simon left the trunk to find a nice branch to rest on and watch the world.

Today Sandy the sailboat has a curious sail. There are some triangular objects out on the sea. Listen to find out what Sandy has discovered. Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story, “Purchase Power”, Monday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Welcome to Favorite Friday! Please enjoy “A Curious Sail” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:10 Narrator: Female A Curious Sail Excerpt: Soon she was out on the lake, and the skipper quickly pulled one sail up, then another.  Colors fluttered in the breeze as her sails were secured.  Sunshine lit Sandy’s sails, showing off their brilliance.  One sail was bright white with a sea green stripe lining the edges, and the other sail had alternating stripes of blue and sea green.  Sandy loved having that sail up.  As the skipper raised each sail, the wind filled it, and gently pushed Sandy along the surface of the water. Up ahead, Sandy could see something, but didn’t know what it was.  There were little triangles, floating on the water.  Sandy hoped the captain would steer her towards them.  She was keeping her eye on the objects, when she felt herself turn. The captain was steering her in a different direction.  Sandy was disappointed.  She had hoped to find out what the objects were.  As the sailboat turned, the breeze whispered away. Sandy’s sails fluttered, and she coasted slowly.  The captain turned her rudder, back and forth, until the breeze filled her colorful sails again.  The breeze gently pushed Sandy forward and the little sailboat smiled.  She was headed back towards the triangular objects!  Now she could see colors in the distance. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple floated on the water ahead of her. Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating in a tranquil pool, safe and relaxed, as the water rocks you gently.

After weeks of helping out Emily and Billy have filled up their saving jars. Do they have enough Purchase Power to buy the robot kit? Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:08 Narrator: Female Purchase Power Excerpt: Billy and Emily had earned the money in their jars by saving money they got as birthday gifts and for holidays.

Rogelio's family is going camping. Rogelio would prefer to play with his tablet. How will Rogelio react to the enchanting woods? Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story, “Silly Scooters”, Monday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Welcome to Favorite Friday! Please enjoy “The Enchanting Woods” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 9:01 Narrator: Male The Enchanting Woods Excerpt: “Now what do we do?” Rogelio asked. “We should set up the campfire.  Would you help me carry the wood we got at the ranger’s station?” his dad asked.  “OK.” Rogelio helped his dad carry the firewood from the fire to the campsite. Once Rogelio and his dad had carried the firewood to the campsite, his mom and dad started arranging it.  Rogelio, decided now would be a good time to use his tablet.  He opened his bag, and pulled the tablet out.  Rogelio pressed the button.  It was still dark.  Rogelio pushed the button again and it flickered to life… just long enough to tell him that it needed to be recharged.  He had forgotten to charge it, and there was nowhere to plug it in out in the woods.

While two silly scooters are zipping around on a driveway, they notice a little hill. Listen as they have some fun on a beautiful afternoon. Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:01 Narrator: Male Silly Scooters Excerpt: The boy sat down on one scooter and began zipping around, and the girl hopped on the other. Su and Skyler smiled, happy to be playing. The two scooters zigged and zagged around each other. As the scooters rolled across the top of the driveway Su noticed they were at the top of a hill and said to Skyler, “Wouldn’t it be fun if we rolled down the hill.” “Oh, I don’t know Su. We might go too fast. And then how will we get back up. I’d rather stay here.” As Skyler said that, one kid scooted to the edge of the hill with Su, then with a “Whee!!” off they went. Skyler felt afraid to look. However, the boy giggled and rolled to the edge of the hill. Today’s Meditation: Today, enjoy the feeling of your body relaxing into the warm sand on a sunny beach.

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new stories, “Bridge Building”, Monday and “Clumsy Kitty, Tuesday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Welcome to Favorite Friday! Please enjoy “Love Sings” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:43 Narrator: Female Love Sings Excerpt: One cheerful song came from a thick green bush. Tucked inside its branches was a robin’s nest. The nest was cozy and dry, sheltered by the tight branches and the tough green leaves. The bush protected its treasures and hugged the little nest tight.  No rain would bother Gerry Robin and her eggs.  The little bird took a deep breath in and out (deep breath) and the wonderful song filled the air again.  Gerry Robin was singing to her babies, telling them how much she loved them.  She had three beautiful blue speckled eggs, tucked into the warm little nest.  Gerry smiled as she sang, and the breeze carried the happy melody to everyone in the yard.

Grubby is a sweet but clumsy kitty. As he checks on everyone's activities, Grubby makes a bit of a mess. It's a relief to all when he settles in for a nap. Hello everyone!  We have a bonus for you this week! For international cat day we have a new calming kitty story “Clumsy Kitty.” Enjoy this extra episode about one of our friendly furballs. And don’t worry dog lovers. We’ll have a special Dog story for National Dog Day later this month! Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:58 Narrator: Female Clumsy Kitty Excerpt: Grubby ran into the hall stopping outside the family room. The soft sound of pages turning drifted into the hall. The curious cat hurried into the room and leapt onto the bookcase. The bookcase wobbled a little as Grubby landed. The clumsy kitten took a second to balance then looked around. He saw Mom reading a book on the couch. Eager for some more petting the kitten took a step towards Mom. His paw landed on a loose book, and with that step Grubby, and the book, slid off the bookcase. Mom jumped, surprised by the sudden noise and turned to see the cream-colored kitty. Books cascaded down all around him. Today’s Meditation: Feel your body fill with warmth and love as you send your loving energy to the world.
