Children’s Stories

Children’s Stories

These stories were written as assignments for a correspondence course from The Institute of Children’s Writing in Redding Ridge, Connecticut. Each story stands alone as a Children’s Book designed for 8-10-year-old readers. This website has its initial publication here on my website. My goal to publish each of them separately and/or all together as a Children’s Storybook will be realized in 2022.

Who can that strange man in disguise? Why is he here around? Could he want to harm our guest? Our favorite beautiful movie star will speak to the assembled crowd in spite of him being among the people gathered in the City Park to hear her.
