My kids and I love listening to Lily the frog tell us stories. Some are kind and gentle, some are good for falling asleep, some are full of adventure. They are all wonderful!

The Rich Man and the Shoemaker
07:00

The Rich Man and the Shoemaker is a fable first penned by LaFontaine and rearranged and recorded here by Marlene Wurfel. This episode features a very special performance by Captain Thunderpants, the Vancouver Island Comox Valley's Performer of the Year in 2020. 

This story is hundreds of years old. Is it still relevant today? Should the Shoemaker have done something differently? Would you have?

Stella and Neon
14:38

This is 15 minutes of relaxed visualization. 

Stella Starwalker and her wolf, Neon, journey through the star scape. They drink from the Milky Way, see Pleiades and other storied constellations, and rest by The Tree of Life. What does a star wolf dream of when he finally sleeps? Star bunnies, of course.

Be well, Darlings.

Three Tales of Yore
06:14

Three of Aesop's fables re-told and re-arranged by Marlene Wurfel for kids: The Donkey in the Lion's Skin, The Crow and the Pitcher, and The Milkmaid and the Pail. Aesop was one of the sages of Ancient Greece, like Socrates. The stories ascribed to him are thousands of years old (all dating to at least 600 b.c.) and are called fables because they always include a moral lesson. Storytellers are always philosophers at heart, and so are kids.
