If you don’t know where you are or where you’re going, it’s always best not to stray too far from the pack. Unfortunately for this story’s protagonist, camel, that’s the mistake he makes here. Leaving his camp only to find himself lost within the vast Sahara Desert, our two-humped hero meets a fennec and a sand cat, who accompany him on his journey.
Ever wanted to be reincarnated as a fish? This story could help make that desire even stronger. Here, you’ll find yourself falling from a fishbowl right into the sea, swimming amongst all other types of wildlife as we go. With the help of a relaxing soundtrack from Chillhop artist Sleepy Fish, you’ll embark on an adventure in the deep blue sea while you also journey off to dreamland.
How about falling asleep to a love story based entirely around owls? In this tale, we see a barn owl named Odies who suddenly has to find his beloved Mel, a snowy owl suffering from an injury. Over 35 minutes, you’ll drift off into a slumber while finding out how Odies tries to rescue her.
From the world of legendary Danish author, Hans Christian Andersen comes this classic tale about the young princess Elisa’s journey toward rescuing her 11 brothers, each under a spell turning them into swans. Since she’s been kicked out of her father’s castle, she’ll have even more adversity to face along the way.
Though this is much shorter than the typical BetterSleep bedtime story, at only 12 minutes, it’s worth the quick listen. In it, we hear about the everyday life of a blue jay named Jakie and the shenanigans he pulls around his caregiver.
