To The Mountain's Peak: A Bedtime Story for Kids

published: 02 11 2023
themes: bedtime, growing up, life changes

There’s something about reaching the top of a mountain that is unlike anything else. That’s what this story is about. It features Kip, the squirrel we met in A Walk in the Woods. He’s back for another adventure. Snuggle up with your blanket. Hold it tightly so a bear cannot snatch it away.

Thank you to Kaiya and Kaden for the super important reminder message at the beginning!

If you love this story, please share it with all squirrels who need quiet in order to practice their tubas, toads who tend not to give straight answers to anything, all experts on human behavior, and your friends. They just might need a good story.
