It's that time of the year for many of you when your clocks turn back and we get a little bit more light at the end of each day. If your kids are anything like mine, the time change can make bedtime a little rough. We've got you covered with a few bedtime podcasts for kids that we think will help your littles get to sleep.

African Folktales with Miss Jo Jo is an award-winning podcast featuring short stories originating in Africa. The stories have been passed down through generations and teach lessons in a very fun way. Miss Jo Jo has a lovely voice that is perfect for quieting kids at bedtime. This episode is about a little boy who finds a magic soup pot. Will he get to eat it?

Koala Moon is a bedtime story & sleep meditation podcast that helps children sleep like a dream. The host, Abbe Opher, has such a soothing voice. It's perfect for a bedtime podcast for kids. This episode is about a squirrel named Maji who had to clean his treehouse before decorating for a Diwali party he was throwing for his sleepy forest neighbors. Note: there are typically commercials and promos in the first few minutes of this show.

🎧 Bearily Bear Stories: The Story of an Awkward Duckling Bearily Bear Stories is a modern rewrite of old fairytales written and hosted by Miral Sattar, a fierce momma who is on a mission to share stories with diverse and confident characters. This episode is about a mother duck who is looking after a swan's precious egg. It is a sweet story that reimagines fostering and adoption for all ages.

🎧 The Story Forest: Javan and the Dragon The Story Forest is one of my favorite finds this year. It's a delightful podcast, created by Anna Roberts and hosted by her mother Pam Macnaughten. Each season is a series of original stories (often about unicorns and dragons) that will be sure to spark your kid's imagination. This episode is the first story in season 10 and is about a boy named Javon whose life is about to change forever when he meets a dragon.


Here are more podcasts that help with bedtime noted in this post from earlier this year.
