A BEDTIME STORY FOR JANE
Once there lived a little girl, Jane, who didn’t want to go to bed in time, even after a busy day. When it was bedtime, she still had so many things to do: cartoons, games, stories, or pictures.
One evening the girl’s mum came into her room and said, “It’s eight o’clock, dear. Time to go to bed.” The girl wanted more time to play. But her mum said, “No more playing. Wee Willie Winkie is running through the town”. And the bedtime story began…
From that time on, the girl always went to bed in time, ready for another bedtime story.
