801. Forest Finds: a calming bedtime and nap time story with a positive message

Andy and his dad go on a hike and try to find all the animals and plants on Andy’s list.

Forest Finds Excerpt:

It was a beautiful day on Ahway Island. Sunlight shimmered on the leaves of the trees. The birds twittered in song as they soared through the air on the warm summer breeze.  Butterflies fluttered from flower to flower in the lush green yards of the neighborhood. Andy sat on the porch of his front yard absentmindedly watching the birds dip and swoop. His eyes lowered and he noticed a dog in the yard across the street digging a hole in the ground.

Andy was waiting for his dad outside. They were going to go on an adventure in the forest today. Andy had been learning about plants and animals at school, and he was excited to see what they could find in the forest.  He even had a list of things he was hoping to see on their hike.
