An A-Z of Children’s Stories – day 5

az headere



Emma had a special talent. She didn’t know it was special. She thought it was normal.

One summer’s day Mummy and Daddy and Uncle Gilbert and Auttie Molly were all sitting in the garden. Daddy was cooking burgers and stuff over a fire in a big tin box. Little Emma was wandering around amusing herself. She winked at a bumble bee and it buzzed round in a circle. She poked out her tongue at a dandelion and it exploded and all the little white bits floated down and landed in her hair.

She wiggled her nose at a bud, and it turned into a beautiful flower. She stuck out her tongue at an ugly slug and it slithered away as fast as its slime could carry it! She smiled at a spider which sat down beside her, and started to tickle her feet!

It was getting cloudy and Emma felt a little chilly. Auntie Molly looked up at the sky and frowned.

Daddy gave Uncle Gilbert a plate of big fat sausages. Emma was hungry and wondered when she would get hers! Uncle Gilbert shook some pepper over his plate, but some of it missed and went up Emma’s nose! She sneezed the biggest sneeze she’d ever sneezed and suddenly the clouds disappeared!

Emma looked up at the sky and grinned. The sun looked down at Emma and smiled!

    So cute. Allergy season is starting but somehow my sneezes have no power to make clouds disappear.

    She’s obviously not a Muggle! The parents are going to be shocked when the Hogwarts letter arrives.

      That’s so kind of you Cathy but no, in fact this isn’t my normal style or genre of writing. I’m just delighted they seem to be going down so well.

    Such a cute story! It would fit well into a picture book for nighttime reading. I do enjoy your imagination, Keith, lol

    Emma has special powers rather magic. What a cute little story, Keith. When my son was in KG, i would make up stories to tell him everyday.

      I’m finding telling these tales quite refreshing! I almost wish I had a kindergarten child to tell them to! Cheers Kalpana

    That IS a special talent! May I borrow her sometime? 😉

    Being in the UK, I envy Emma’s ability to blow away the rain clouds. Did she ever get her sausages?

      She is very useful living in the south of England herself! Don’t worry I made sure she got her hotdog! Thanks once again Debbie

    This was really cute, Keith. Now, you know how I think: could she have some Magic in her? Hmmm? 😉

    So cute. Its really an incredible short story. But here I wish it happens the contrary, that it should rain with my sneeze. We are missing the rains just after a week of the official start of summer here in India

      I’ll pop her on a plane to India and see if her sneeze attracts rain clouds rather than chases them away! Cheers
