Kids Nook Reads: Pirates Aren’t Scared of the Dark!

I remember when I was a little girl I used to be my mom and dad to let me camp out in the treehouse in our backyard. They said I could… but only if I brought my little brother! Ugh! What was I going to do?

That’s the exact question in today’s story: Pirates Aren’t Scared of the Dark! In this story we learn that not only should we include our siblings in our games to make them more fun, but that sometimes we’re going to be super grateful to have them around!

Kids Nook Reads: Gruff the Grump

Some days are just no good, and that’s fine! We all have those moment when we just want to sit inside and pout. But while we may want to do this, it’s never a good idea to make a habit out of it, or to ignore the efforts of our friends to cheer us up.

Today’s story is about a bear who stayed inside and pouted for too long: Gruff the Grump. Take a look and see what happens to this Grumpy bear!
