Short Stories for Children of All Ages: GivingGiving
gave Mum a present on her birthday, all wrapped up in pretty paper.
And she gave me a big kiss.
gave Dad a very special picture which I painted at play-group.
And he gave me a ride on his shoulders most of the way home.
gave the baby some slices of my apple. We ate them sitting under the table.
At teatime the baby gave me two of his soggy crusts.
That wasn´t much of a present!
You can give someone a cross look ... or a big smile!
You can give a tea party... or a seat on a crowded bus.
On my birthday Grandma and Grandpa gave me a beautiful doll´s pram.
I said "Thank you" and gave them each a big hug.
And I gave my dear doll Bemily a ride in it, all the way down the garden path and back again.
I tried to give the cat a ride toobut she gave me a nasty scratch!
So Dad had to give my poor arm a kiss and a wash and a piece of sticking plaster.
Sometimes, just when I´ve built a big castle out of bricks, the baby comes along and gives it a big swipe! And it all falls down. Then I feel like giving the baby a big swipe too. But I don´t, because he is my baby brother, after all.
