839. Gum Tree Games: a soothing kid’s story when you need a break

Wynne Wallaby feels nervous because it’s her first day with a babysitter. How will Kiera Koala help her feel better?

Narrator: Male

Story Begins: 4:10

Gum Tree Games Excerpt:

The warm sunshine dappled the forest floor, creating a patchwork of light and shadow. Wynne Wallaby and her mother relaxed in the shade of the gum trees. The little wallaby snuggled closer to her mother’s side and smiled. She loved being with her mama, especially on beautiful afternoons like today.

Her mother looked down at Wynne, smiled back, and gave her a little nuzzle. “Wynne, sweetie, I need to venture out for a little while to find some especially delicious wildflowers for a treat later,” she said. “How about you stay here and play with Keira?”
