The Friendly Monster
Reading your child Short Stories For Kids nightly has been proven to strengthen their vocabulary as well as their creativity. The friendly monster is a short story for kids that tells the story of a little girl that becomes very good friends with a monster. Here is how the story goes.
Tina was always afraid of the dark, she always went to bed with the lights on. She was afraid that the monster would come and eat her. Her daddy always checked her closet and under her bed for monsters. Even though she was almost 9 years old , she always had her mom lie down in bed next to her and tell her a short story for kids until she fell asleep.
One night, Tina was awaken in the middle of the night by some weird noises coming from her second floor window. She opened her eyes and saw a huge 3-eyed monster with two big horns sticking out of his head trying to get into her room through the window. She was too scared to even yell for help, so she stayed motionless in her bed waiting to see what is going to happen next.
The monster was able to break the window and get in. Tina was wondering why her parents didn't wake up from all the noise. The monster went straight to Tina's bed. Tina's heart was beating so fast, she thought she was going to faint. All of a sudden, the monster said:
"Hello there little girl, I hope I didn't scare you. My name is Mongus. I was wondering if I can get some milk and cookies, I ran out." Tina couldn't believe her ears.
"So, you are not here to eat me, you just want cookies and milk?" She asked.
The monster laughed loudly, and said with his deep voice: "Eat you? No, no, why would i want to eat you. I am a vegetarian, plus, you shouldn't be scared of me because I am a friendly monster. It's my cousin Bady you should be scared of, he is the mean one in the family. Can I have some milk and cookies now? Please."
Tina got up, went to the kitchen where she got some milk and cookies for her and Mongus. While eating the cookies, Mongus asked Tina if she had any books with Short Stories For Kids they can read. When Tina got up to see what books to get Mongus saw a Monopoly game sitting on Tina's dresser, so he said:
"Boy oh boy, that is my bestest favorite game in the whole wide world, forget about the kids stories, can we play Monopoly instead?? pleeeease."
"Sure thing." Tina answered.
So they played Monopoly for hours and shared lots of laughs and became good friends. Mongus told Tina that he had to go home before his mom got worried about him as soon as the sun rose. Tina asked him if he could come back next night.
"I would love to, as long as you are willing to share your cookies and play Monopoly with me again." Mongus said.
"Yes, yes, I definitely will Mongus" Tina replied.
Mongus left the room the same way he came in, through the window leaving Tina behind with a big smile on her face. Tina ran straight to her parents' room to tell them what happened, but to her surprise, no one was there. Tina started to wonder where would have her parents gone so early in the morning, so she went back to bed.
Soon after, Tina woke up to her father's voice saying: "Wake up sweety, you are going to be late to school"
"Daddy, you are home." Tina said loudly.
Tina told her father the whole story about Mongus and what happened last night, and how the window got broken. Her father assured her that the whole thing was just a dream, as the window wasn't broken, and neither he nor mom went anywhere, they were sleeping in bed the whole time.
"So Mongus isn't coming back?" Tina asked.
"It is all up to you honey. You can bring him back anytime you like, all you have to do is dream about him again. By the way that would make a nice addition to your collection of Short Stories For Kids. Write it down so you can tell it to your kids and grandkids when you get older. " Her father replied.

Good Short Stories for Kids? (Answers: 1) (Comments: 0)
I'm looking for short stories to read to a 12 - 13 year old group. Preferably something you could read in a 10 minute time span before bed. We've just finished The Tales of Beetle the Bard (the Harry Potter fairytales) and they loved them. I'm trying to find something along those lines. Good fairytale-like stories, good moral, etc., but not something too babyish. If anyone has any good books to recommend that'd be great! Thanks! :)

Help finding a book from the 70s? (Answers: 1) (Comments: 0)
It's scary short stories from the 70s. Pretty sure it's a scholastic book. The cover is black with a ghost on the front. One story is about rats coming out of a lighthouse and the other is the ghost of a deformed boy committing murders. If you could help, it'd be much appreciated.
