Both my 2 year old AND 7 year old loved this... I did too. Thanks!
My mom and I really enjoyed this. It was very relaxing and we can't wait for more! From Max in Pittsburgh.
Relaxing and works like a charm putting my son to sleep!
My 5 year old son has fallen asleep faster than ever the last 3 nights in a row listening to Trip to the Moon. It usually takes him a long time to wind down and finally fall asleep but these stories are something magical! They help him relax and feel safe enough to fall asleep while also telling a neat story at the same time. Some stories make him stay awake for some reason and some bedtime meditations become too boring for him to listen to. We would love if you recorded more stories on your podcast! Thank you for your calming + interesting voice and stories.
