The Clown

by Dac Von Stoller

John Edwards was an avid collector of antiques. He would travel all over the United States to find unique antiques and anything else that most collectors would pass on. John was happy with his collections, but he was looking for something his friends would say why did you add this to your collection.

Just as John was traveling through a little town called Pleasantville. The town was so small you could throw a rock from one end of the town to the other end. John just about missed the town and his long awaited rare antique to add to his collection. Then all of a sudden he slammed on his brakes. He backed up his car in front of a sign that was dusty and barely hanging on to the wooden post. John got out of his car to read what was on the sign. He dusted off the sign and said, “Wow! I’m glad I stopped in the nick of time or I would have never known about this place.

John got back in his car and traveled down the gravel road in search of this antique store. John must have been traveling down the gravel road for more than thirty minutes. Just as he was about to say forget it, and drive back home, there was a sign that read Pleasantville Antique store.

John pulled in to the Antique store and parked his car. He looked up at the sky and got one glimpse as the sun was setting. As he got out of his car the wind was picking up and a storm was on the way. Right as John opened the door to the antique store it started storming. John called out to see if anyone was in the store. Then an old man shouted out and said, “I’ll be with you in just a moment, there are milk and cookies on the table if you’re hungry from your long drive.”
John went over to the table and poured a glass of milk and picked up one of the cookies and said, “Your cookies are wonderful. They’re still warm as though you were expecting company.”

Finally, the old man came to the front of the store to greet John.
“I’m glad you like my cookies,” replied the old man.

“Why don’t you have a seat at the table and tell me what you are looking for?” exclaimed the old man.

“You see, I’m somewhat of an odd collector of antiques. I mainly get a rush out of finding something that my fellow antique buddies don’t have.” answered John.

“Well I think you came to the right place John,” replied the old man.

“How do you know my name? I really don’t, I just got lucky and guessed the right name,” laughed the old man.

John got up from the table and looked out the window and said, “It looks like the rain has stopped. I really need to get back soon before the rain starts pouring down again.”

“Follow me behind the curtain at the back of the store. That’s where I keep my rarest and most valued antiques. I’m sure there is something you will like,” replied the old man with a smile on his face.

John followed the old man behind the curtain and the old man said, “Since you are looking for something your antique collecting buddies wouldn’t dare think to collect, this is what you need to complete your collection.”

“This is what I’ve been looking for, you’ve got to be kidding me,” replied John as he laughed.

“Don’t be so quick to think this is some kind of joke,” exclaimed the old man.

“A clown costume, I’m not sure this is something I need to complete my collection,” answered John.

by Pamela Tomlin

This is the third book in the “My Truly Most Favorite Fluffy Friend” series. In the first book Emma finds and comes to love her collection of stuffed animal friends. They help her to feel safe at night, so she doesn’t get scared all by herself. Research does suggest that stuffed animals may actually help a young child handle fears and emotions, just as the stuffed animals in this story help Emma.

In the second story Emma searches for her fluffy friend, Bunny Blue. “Bunny Blue, Where Are You?” Losing a stuffed animal or lovey can be quite traumatic for a young child. Emma’s search and concern for her lost friend is most sincere. Again, her friends help comfort her by helping with the search. This story also uses directional words. Directional words, such as left, right, up, and down, may help a child as young as two years old with the development of language.

This third story in the series is “I Do Not Like Bugs!” Bugs are extremely scary to Emma. As with the first two stories, she has her friends to help assist her and comfort her during the story. In this story she and her friends have a close encounter with a bug. Is the bug dangerous or is it simply disgusting? Find out what happens to Emma and her friends during the story. How do her friends help her? What does Emma discover?

Read this fun and beautifully illustrated story with your two to eight year old child. Even a child as young as two will enjoy the bright and colorful pictures and the cute stuffed animal characters. There is a puppy, a kitten, a bear, a seal, a monkey, and a bunny. They are all adorable.

This is a cute and funny story. It is a wonderful story for you to read to your child. Children who are learning to read may enjoy sharing the story with their own stuffed animal friend. Research does indicate that reading to a stuffed animal may help encourage a child to read.

Enjoy, “I Do Not Like Bugs!”

Make Your Life Better by Saying Thank You in These 7 Situations:

by Muhammad Shoaib

I don’t say “Thank You” as often as I should and I doubt I’m the only one.

In fact, I’m starting to believe that “Thank You” is the most under-appreciated and under-used phrase on the planet. It is appropriate in nearly any situation and it is a better response than most of the things we say. Let’s cover 7 common situations when we say all sorts of things, but should say “Thank You” instead.

Say Thank You

1. Say “Thank You” when you’re receiving a compliment.
We often ruin compliments by devaluing the statement or acting overly humble. Internally, you might think this prevents you from appearing arrogant or smug.

The problem is that by deflecting the praise of a genuine compliment, you don’t acknowledge the person who was nice enough to say something. Simply saying “Thank You” fully acknowledges the person who made the compliment and allows you to enjoy the moment as well.

Betwixters: Once Upon A Time

by Laura C Cantu

Step Into the Magic and Mystery

A mysterious forest near the cozy town of Herogate, England is more than what it seems. The gnarled trees appear to breathe, gloomy storms follow you around, and prowling shadows come to life before your very eyes. Referred to as The Dark Wood by the townsfolk, the forest is guarded by a strange old man and creatures not of this world. Even the locals never set foot in the bewitched woodlands, and trespassers have a way of turning up dead.
When Noah Walters moves to town with his parents, his fatherâ??a contractor working on a top-secret project for a private security firmâ??makes Noah promise to never enter those woods; but he doesn’t know that Fate has other plans.
Noah and his new best friends, Ethan and Skye, are chased into The Dark Wood by Grucker, a schoolyard bully, and their lives are changed forever. They are forced into the heart of the forest, where they discover a lost fairy who needs their help to find her way back home before it’s too late.
Join Noah and his friends on a magical adventure as they race against time and plunge headfirst into the unknown. They are challenged with secrets to keep, a dangerous mission to accomplish, and a test of courage that will bring them face-to-face with magical creatures they thought only existed in fairy tales.
This is more than a tale of discovery, mystery, and excitement; it’s an epic adventure that will usher you into a world where magic is in the air, in the trees, and in every heart.
