May 10, 2024

Billy and Emily figure out how to communicate with Roly the Robot.


Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Bot Basics,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Narrator: Male


Story Begins: 8:55


Bot Basics Excerpt:


Light filled the living room as the curtains opened. The little robot charging on the table opened her eyes. Feeling refreshed and full of energy Roly slid off the charger. She hoped the kids had time to play today. Roly wanted to learn more. The little robot looked over to the quiet tablet, and then towards the sound of laughter spilling out of the hallway. From the sound of it, Roly figured the happy kids were coming her way. As she listened to Billy and Emily talking the little robot looked back at the tablet, still sitting peacefully. Roly wished she could understand what the kids were saying without a translator.


Billy and Emily rushed over to the table. Billy picked up the tablet and said, “Good morning, Roly!” as he typed.


Today’s Meditation: Today, enjoy the feeling of your body relaxing into the warm sand on a sunny beach.
