Sometimes You Need a Shoulder
I get to do lots of neat stuff at Grandma's that I don't get to do at home. I wait until we get there to tell Mom I want to sleep over because I know she will say, ―You didn‘t bring your pajamas. And then Grandma will say, ―You can sleep in one of Grandpa‘s T-shirts. She always wants me to sleep over at her house. That‘s how you know she‘s a grandma.
After Mom and Dad leave, Grandma cuts a big piece of cake and pours a glass of milk for me. I eat it all and then Grandma says, ―Would you like another piece?‖ My mom would never let me have two pieces of cake because she‘s not a grandma.
At home, Mom makes me go to bed at 8:00. She says I am growing and need my sleep. At Grandma‘s house I get to stay up as late as I want and watch scary movies on television. Usually I fall asleep on the couch and Grandpa carries me to bed. But at least Grandma didn‘t make me go to bed early. That‘s how you know she‘s a grandma.
When I wake up at home, Mom cooks biscuits out of a can. When they are cooked, Mom puts a small drop of butter and a teeny-weeny bit of jelly with no sugar on them. She‘s not a grandma.
Delightful, Entertaining, Humorous and Enchanting
A Sunny Tomorrow by Author, Theresa Franklin, is a collection of delightful short stories written for young children. This endearing collection has nineteen short stories in all. Each story deals with a different subject. The author truly captures the heart and mind of the child in each story. Additionally, this author is known for identifying with children’s feelings within each subject and especially when dealing with difficult subjects such as divorce, adoption, having a parent with special needs or dealing with the loss of a parent.
Included in this entertaining collection are more humorous stories that deal with much lighter subjects such as grandmas, tasting something to eat before you decide you don’t like it and how a lovely blue flower called a bluebonnet grows or how to be superhero. Each story is entertaining and enchanting for children of young ages to sit and listen to. I found myself chuckling at some of the tales, as the author really knows how a kid thinks. My six year old was quite enchanted and kept saying, “That’s true, that’s what I think.”
Other thoughtful writings are written for comfort, such as Sometimes You Need a Shoulder and Mommy Doesn’t Cry Anymore or Daddy, I’m Scared. Other stories included are simply written for humor and entertainment, like Jolene the Pig or Brent and Dad Go Fishing. No matter which story you choose, you can be sure your children will be thoroughly entertained and will be asking you to read more and more.
