Being a stay-at-home mom can be quite a challenge especially for those who are used to working in the healthcare industry. Author Ruby Diamond may have found it challenging at first, but she used her imagination to entertain her kids and it gave birth to Short Stories 4 Children.

This book features four short stories of children who perceive life as they it. In the first story, “I See My Teeth,” young readers will get to know about a little boy who has a difficult time accepting the fact that he is losing one of his teeth, only to discover that a new one will soon replace it. “Helps” focuses on a little girl who wants to help her family but is not quite old enough to help.

Rounding up this short story collection is “Hello Pickle” and “Save the Slug.” The former tells of a young girl who learns a word from watching television and applies that word oddly with certain people she encounters while the latter follows a boy in school who keeps a banana slug from being injured during a classroom hike around the woods.

An engaging read, Short Stories 4 Children is a wonderful book that parents and children can enjoy together. The charming tales are sure to fuel young ones’ imagination and put them in the shoes of the main characters. Through this delightful picture book, Diamond offers a great way to jumpstart children’s appreciation for stories and reading.
