Short Story for Kids written by: María de las Mercedes Semhan.

“It´s the most beautiful thread I’ve ever seen” she exclaimed. She whispered to her family of soft needles and invited them to meet her lovely Mr.Thread.



They observed him, gave their opinion; “He is attractive, but he is a stranger, don´t you think you should know more about him before allowing him take advantage of you”.

“It’s the first time I think I´m in good hands, and I don´t feel the need to avoid him. He is very mysterious because I don´t know where he comes from, or who he is, or what he wants to sew, I just know that if I help him I will feel good”.

The thread joined the paper needle and said:

“Don´t worry, don´t be afraid, you won´t have to sew, we will make a beautiful Christmas decoration together for the Christmas tree this year. I am gold coloured, lonely and old. Thanks for trusting me and discovering that I have something beautiful to give”.

And so, the paper needle and the thread united in love, created the most amazing Christmas Star.
