THE HAUNTED CABIN IN THE WOODS
Once upon a time there was a little girl named Kirsten. She was swinging. After she was done, she went in to the woods. She walked into a cabin and an old lady was standing by a fire stirring stew. The old lady turned around and saw the little girl. She asked the little girl if she wanted some stew. Kirsten said, “Please.” She ate some stew and after that she fell asleep. When she woke up she felt something very hot and wet all over her. She jumped out of the pot and pushed the old lady in and went home…written June 23, 1999

A FAT CAT AND A SAD DAD
BEANERY ONLINE LITERARY MAGAZINE
Heidi was a chocolate Lab and her eyes were green. Her tail had barely any hair on it, her sides had barely any hair on them. This was when she was older.
We got her when I was just a little baby (I’m 8 1/2 now) and we had her almost eight years. My dad got her from a day care center. I’m not sure why she was left the day care center, but I think the kids were roughhousing with her. Her real owner fed her nothing but table scraps. They never gave her one little bit of dog food. We always gave her dog food but sometimes we gave her a little bacon. Other times she would eat our cat’s food.
She always followed my mom wherever she went. She never bit me, I never pulled her tail or ears, and I was never afraid of her.
When Heidi was a little puppy she liked to play ball a whole lot.
Heidi was thirteen years old when we had to put her to sleep. She wouldn’t get up, she kept on throwing up and she wouldn’t eat, and that’s when we knew we had to take her to the vet. She stayed overnight there, and she kept on throwing up in the night.
My mom was terrified when the vet said Heidi had to be put to sleep, so my grandma drove her to the vet. My mom cried the whole way there.
I felt sad when she was put to sleep and I miss her a whole lot.

—written by Jordan using information from a Tribune-Review newspaper article, NightLights (July 23, 2007).

My dog is short and stubby
His ears are very long
So when he walks on the path
He steps on them
Then he starts to bark—-
because it hurts him very bad.

As a former mother of preschoolers, and a family day care home provider, I always appreciated little rhymes to share with and create with the children. I especially liked the rhymes that would lead the child to learning to appreciate reading and writing.
After my daughter in law, Tammy, and grandson VINCE shared with me the rhymes they created together, they agreed I could share them with you. So today’s posting is for the young children in your life. —Carolyn
