079 – Cat Nap Compilation Vol 02
This week we have a selection of short sleepy stories to help you get your night’s rest
Detailed episode notes: https://sleepytimetales.net/?p=1371
An exciting series of short stories send you to sleep on this week’s podcast. For your bedtime enjoyment we present a trio of tales of a mythological flavour. From a young boy in the Andes saving the lives of some ‘intrepid’ and careless explorers. To how the Elephant got his trunk, thanks to his insatiable curiosity, and ending with a fable of the creation of Day and Night.
