Description

As had generations of parents and grandparents I told my grandchildren stories at bedtime to get them off to sleep. I told my two grandchildren, Lillia and Joel, most of the old and traditional stories as were told to me. Favorites being, so often repeated, were, 'The Three Little Pigs', 'Little Red Riding Hood' and 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. These stories, among others, were staples for a few years but as they got a bit older they wanted something different and wanted me to make up stories about their current favorite topics. While my grandson, Joel, had a interest in knights and dragons I made up stories on that topic. The first story in this little book is one such. His interest Space exploration and Astronomy inspired other stories. My granddaughter, Lillia, has interests many and varied, dragons and dinosaurs among those. However, when she acquired a pet rabbit, named Joey, then my made up stories had to be about rabbits. And one such story is included. A difficulty came when I would be asked to repeat some of these made up on the spot stories. Detail would not be remembered so I could stray from the original and be corrected. So I wrote many of them down and what is published here is some of that collection.show more
