The Rich Man and the Shoemaker

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

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.

The Velveteen Rabbit with Annotations

This beautiful story written in 1922 by Margery Williams is almost 100 years old and about a time in history before there was antibiotic treatment for scarlet fever, a potentially fatal childhood disease. It's a story not only about survival, but resilience, change, love, and fairy magic.

Lily Reads Letters from her Bright Green Mailbox

In this episode of Tales from the Lilypad, Lily reads her letters from all over the world and shares her recipe for stories. 

Here's the song lyrics for the song Lily recommends to help kids learn to wash their hands properly:

Urm urm went the little green frog one day
Urm urm went the little green frog
Urm urm went the little green frog one day 
And the frogs went urm urm eh

But we know frogs go La de dah de dah
La de da de da, La de da de da,
We all know frogs go La de dah de dah
They don't go urm urm eh

Thanks for all the love from you listeners! Getting these letters was like the best virtual hug!
