Short Story for Kids written by: Carolina Mora Arévalo.

Karen went for a walk in a beautiful garden, full of tulips and butterflies. The little girl loved nature and always enjoyed the fresh wind blowing through her hair.

She ran from one side to the other, taking care not to damage the flowers in the beautiful garden.


Suddenly, behind a big bush, she found a swing made from tree branches. Karen Did not hesitate for a second and jumped onto the swing, and began swinging so the wind dishevelled her hair.



She felt free and happy, surrounded by the flowers, the wind and the birds. The swing filled her heart with freedom. It didn´t matter how little she was, she knew clearly what she liked. How she enjoyed the swing!

Karen then ran on until she found a bridge. From it, she watched a green frog playing in the water. Karen picked up th frog and was tickled by the drops of water that the frog splashed on her hands. The she let her go, as she understood that the frog was scared.

Karen ran on, enjoying the garden when suddenly, she found a birds nest full of little chicks waiting for their mum to bring them food.

Karen observed them closely, without scaring them, and enjoying their hungry twittering. When the mother arrived the girl moved away in order to let her feed her little ones.

After a long time running and enjoying the garden, Karen fell asleep with a big smile on her face due to the beautiful day she had had playing among the tulips.

And that is the end of the story…
