This restful story takes place during the Junkyard "All Clear Common" where the animals have a full day of rest and relaxation.  

We here in Sparkle Land posted this story because we are resting this week to prepare for a big event: a kickstarter campaign to fund the development of an app that will hold all these free stories for you.  An app that can play them whenever and wherever you want!  More on this over the next few weeks!

This story is probably one of our most sleepy – about a young bald eagle named Luke Alden who has lots and lots of ideas.  All day long he thinks of ideas and then one evening those ideas get in the way of falling asleep.  Luckily his mother has an idea herself about how Luke Alden can let go of those ideas and feel his sleepy body.  This is just the thing, because it doesn’t take long for Luke Alden to fall deeply and peacefully asleep.

It is a few days before their big trip to California, and Daddy has some errands to run.  Brother and sister reluctantly come, but hope the trip will be short and quick.  When Daddy proposes they take a new route, they all enjoy the magic that can happen when taking short ways, long ways, right ways and wrong ways.

Brother and sister are getting Valentine-making fatigue.  They would like some inspiration.  When Daddy says it is too snowy to go into town, they propose playing the story game where everyone tells a little bit of a story together.  Daddy agrees, and the whole family manages to tell a story that is about Valentines, Medieval times and yes, Dalmatians.

When we think of Valentines Day, we often think of Cupid - the magical little cherub shooting arrows of love to unsuspecting youths.  But did you know he had a little brother named Eris?  Like most brothers, Cupid and Eris has some things and common and some things that are very different.  Well, this story is about how one of those differences changed the course of 'love' forever.

On her first slow walk out to the end of a red mangrove branch, Shakira, the pygmy sloth experienced something sudden:  the branch broke off.  She and the branch fell down to the ground, and though she was fine - no breaks or bruises - she was still rather shaken up.  Luckily her mother had fallen many times and knew what to do - she would 'unshake' her - or help her body let go of the accident.
 
This story can be useful for when your child (or anyone really) needs support after an accident.  In fact, the story was written for some dear friends who had just gotten into a car accident, and though they escaped with only bruises, both children were pretty rattled.  The story gives a body-based exercise that anyone can use.  We hope you can add this story to our growing list of 'first aid kit' stories to have ready in your back pocket

Each year, the Junkyard animals celebrate their love and appreciation for each other with a Valentines Gift Exchange.  Everyone draws one name from a hat — to learn who will receive their gift.  When Ben Thompson, curious cat, picks the name of Georgia Bean, the kindly rat, he panics.  Georgia Bean is like a mother to all the animals!  There’s no one better at being kind, caring and generous.  What could he possibly give her?
