This was my very first story written for children. It is written for a younger (3-4)age group. I feel more comfortable writing for older children, but that doesn't mean it is any less amusing, plus it holds all the values of what I believe a bedtime story should include. When constructed in free unrestricted rhyme, while reading along, children quickly begin to retain portions of each story. Once the child begins reading independently, these stories act as memory assisting templates to guide the beginning reader through their first reading selections. The reading successes of a child will fuel additional comprehension activities and help to jump start reading skills that greatly motivate the young reader. The length of this story is designed to be between 5-10 minutes, to act as a short break or bedtime activity.
