Blissful Books: a short story and meditation for kids

Update: 2020-04-20


Today, Billy volunteers at the library. As he shares the blissful books he notices one boy needs a little extra kindness, and helps him out.

Narrator: Female

Blissful Books Excerpt:

As Billy looked out at the group of kids he noticed one little boy wandering around and shaking his hand in front of his eyes. The little boy reminded Billy of himself when he was younger. Billy used to have difficulty sitting still.

It was still a challenge, but now he knew how to ask for breaks when he needed them. The adults also understood and scheduled as much movement as they could for Billy. It was almost time to start. Billy wanted to help the boy be successful. He turned to the librarian and asked, “Do you have any wobbly cushions, and an extra copy of this book?”

Today’s Meditation: Happiness and love flow through you in this meditation.
