The Story Of A House: A Sleep Story for Kids

published: 10 02 2022
themes: bedtime, big feelings

This is a quiet, sleepy story perfect for bedtime. The main character is an abandoned house that has become the resting place not for people (as intended for all houses) but for hapless woodland creatures who seek refuge from the elements. The house gets a surprise when she hears voices on her porch. Soon a 'For Sale' sign is placed in the yard. Follow along as House relives her early days of life decades ago, and the new possibilities in her future once the sign goes up. What will happen when a couple decides to buy the house? You'll have to listen and find out.
