I wrote a short story my oldest daughter. Among her favorite things she lists snow and dogs, so I went for an obvious title, but perhaps not an obvious story.
Here’s the blurb:
Ellie, an elementary school aged girl, and her mother wake up to discover that it’s a Snow Day and Ellie doesn’t have to go to school. They go outside to build snowmen and go sledding with Ellie’s dog Max, but Ellie’s sense of adventure leads them into danger.
This 5000 word short story is appropriate for middle grades children through adults.
