Murray the Shark Sleeptime Stories (set of 3 CDs)

Sleeptime Stories prepare your children for bed or naptime with interesting (never scary) stories of creative fun and friendship, followed by half an hour of soothing music and the sound of ocean waves. Murray the Shark and friends teach your children meditative breathing and how to access their intuition, lulling them to sleep feeling positive and relaxed.

Buy the first 3 CDs in the Murray the Shark series and your kids will enjoy the variety. Each story builds upon the one before, so children grow and learn with the characters. Also available as individual CD’s or Digital MP3 downloads.


Are you tired of “Disney-style” stories that scare your child and involve evil characters? Are you longing to give your kids positive, exciting stories that teach them useful things at the same time? Would your child benefit from learning deep (meditative) breathing to help them calm down and relax and listen to their gut?

Sleeptime Stories (for ages 2 to 6) involve exciting plots or a puzzle to figure out, and teach children meditative breathing and how to listen to their gut. They are bedtime (or naptime) stories to send your children off to sleep with good feelings, thoughts and dreams.

Each Sleeptime Story CD or MP3 audio file contains an approximately 17-minute story with sound effects, narrated by Jini Patel Thompson. The story is followed by 30 minutes of soothing, calming instrumental music set to the hypnotic rhythm of ocean waves, composed by Steve Martin. Total running time is approximately 47 minutes.

Cuddle up with your child for an interesting, educational story that also puts them to sleep by the end. Or you can use the Sleeptime Stories as a tool to help teach your child how to go to sleep on their own. 

Sleeptime Stories are available as either physical CDs that we ship to you, or as MP3 audio files that you can immediately download to your computer or device. CLICK HERE for all the options.

“Hearing stories instills love of language in children and motivates them to read… Stories capture the imagination, engaging the emotions and opening the minds of listeners. Consequently, any point that is made in a story or any teaching that is done afterward is likely to be much more effective.” – Martha Hamilton and Mitch Weiss (authors of Children Tell Stories)

Heidi R., Ontario

“My kids have such a hard time shutting off their brains at night to go to sleep. I’ve been looking for something to help focus their bedtime attention and help de-stress them from their day. They can’t wait to go to bed tonight, so they can listen to their new stories and music. Thank you so much.”
Tami H., Albuquerque

“The CD’s have been a great tool for calming the children’s minds and getting them ready for rest, and telling stories of friendships and adventures. Every day as we go to pick a CD to listen to, we get at least one request (usually more!) for “Murray The Shark” and it’s a hit with every child that comes through our doors. We’re extremely glad to have been introduced to these sleeptime stories and are looking forward to hearing more adventures from the underwater friends.”
Teachers Nicole and Natalie, Hazelmere Acres Preschool & Daycare, Langley
