The story lengths discussed on this page are a good guide. Usually, short stories are measured by word count, not the number of pages. This is because font size, type of font, spacing etc. can make the word count of a page vary considerably. Hi Chris, I have written 3 children’s books, I guess you would say Novellas. I self-published one for charity but after Lulu took their cut, there was very little left for the charity. It’s still up there, called Arrowroot the Goblin. And I wish you the best of luck with getting your short stories published.
The advisor was interested to **** that the figure ‘0’ had been written in every daily report for the past year. On questioning the members of staff who completed the report, they told him that they always put a zero in that box, and when he asked them why they looked at each other blankly. “Hmmm.., I’m not sure about that,” they each excnagasi.in said, “I guess we’ve just always done it that way.” People in countries where face masks have not been widely used in the past may still be ambivalent about wearing them.

A man checked into a hotel for the first time in his life, and goes up to his room. Two weeks later the investigator completed his report and duly presented his findings to the board, who held a brief meeting to decide remedial action. The board called the investigator back into the room, thanked him for his work, and then instructed him to sack one of the men he’d found standing by ****ars, since obviously this was a duplication of effort. The third man nodded, and was thinking hard, struggling to recall the policy’s roots many years ago when he’d have been a junior in the despatch department. After a pause, the third man smiled and then ventured a suggestion. This widely used story is often told as if it’s a true story.
Of course, being read to by a parent, for whatever reason, is also simply a lovely way to share quiet and close time. For your child to gain the maximum benefit and language learning from reading stories, consider the story’s language level carefully, too. Is the grammar and vocabulary not too easy but still accessible to the reader? Would the language be similar to that which your child might use in their first language?
RSPB: MY FIRST BOOK OF GARDEN BIRDS
A well to do, upper-class lady enters the **** and presents the cashier a cheque which she asks to be paid into an account held by a different ****. The cashier duly tells the lady that there will be a charge of 50p. Indignantly, she tells him, “I wasn’t charged the last time.” The pianist sat down beside her, listened for a few seconds, and whispered some more words of encouragement. He then began quietly to play a bass accompaniment, and then a few bars later reached around the little girl to add more accompaniment.
