About Miral Sattar
I am a busy mother of three in NYC. I love reading to my kids and needed a way to make bedtime an enjoyable experience for my family where everyone could settle own and expand their imagination and Bearily Bear Audio Stories was born.
My kids love listening to Bearily Bear Audio Stories. We take the stories to playdates, museums, and to the park. Bearily Bear Audio Stories also help my 6 and 8-year old sleep through the night!
I have been working in media for over 15 years. I have seen firsthand how stories and digital initiatives can impact children and their imaginations. My writing and I have been featured in TIME, BBC, FORTUNE, Consumer Reports, CNN, NY TIMES, among other media publications.

REIMAGINED FAIRY TALES PODCAST
Rewind to February 2020 (seems so long ago). I was preparing to fundraise for my Bearily Bear Kickstarter project and the Bearily Bear Audio Stories. The money was supposed to help develop, manufacture and distribute a physical bear, Beaily Bear, and expand our Bearily Bear Audio Stories. Then Covid19 happened.
Things have changed so much that we decided to publish the stories as a children's fiction podcast.
Listen to our first season below.

Why did I create Bearily Ever Audio Stories?
I grew up loving classic fairy tales and when my kids were old enough to appreciate them, they were the first stories I turned to. But reading these tales of passive princesses, damsels in distress and torturous witches made me realize how woefully out of sync they were with modern times. So I decided to rewrite and update them and turn them in audio stories.
Bearily Bear Audio Stories feature diverse and confident characters and a lot less violence. These reimagined childhood classics include A Story of a Smart Princess and a Certain Pea, Gretel and Hansel, A Girl Named Rapunzel and more.
The Bearily Bear Podcast will capture your child’s imagination with delightful retellings of outdated fairy tales that put modern-day heroines in charge!
They're perfect for car time, bedtime, snuggly story time, or any time! Listen to a Bearily Bear story today.
I'm still writing and working on new stories, but I am taking Patreon donations so I can continue to pay my narrators and illustrators to produce more stories every month.
