832. Dragon’s Big Mystery: a nap time story and relaxation for kids

Dragon hears a mysterious “Shhhhh” noise in the forest. Who could it be?

Narrator: Female

Story Begins: 3:32

Dragon’s Big Mystery Excerpt:

It was a late afternoon on Ahway Island. In the lush verdant forest, birds twittered joyfully as the foliage on the plants and trees rustled in the breeze. Dragon sat under a sentinel oak tree, leaning back against the trunk, gently tossing a rock up in the air and letting it fall to the ground with a satisfying thunk. Over and over Dragon tossed the rock, and over and over it hit the ground. Thunk. Thunk. Sometimes Dragon tossed the rock gently in the air, and then the thunk sound was quieter. Other times Dragon threw the rock up as high as it would go, and then when it hit the ground, it made a louder thunk.
