Ruby’s #OneMinuteStory 01 ‘The Last Race’

Check out our first ‘One Minute Story’ You might also like to know that it is also a #OneHundredWord story.

Happy Listening.

The Last Race by Rose English

A fragrant spring breeze gently blew over the meadow. The last dandelion clock prepared for the big race; it was not a race to the finish, but a contest of agility – which seed would get the furthest, in the least amount of time?

The athletes shivered in anticipation, each seed nudging its neighbour. The wind whirled, caressing the wildflowers that cheered and waved. It rippled over the grass, tickling and teasing those who waited in anticipation of the final battle. The bluebells rang out, signifying for the seeds to be ready.

Then it was here, and they were off!

Share A Million Stories for World Book Day

Folk can still sign up to be part of the Million Stories Event with prizes up for grabs.  All reading for a minimum of 10 minutes counts towards a story share.

DON’T FORGET: 1 story share = the number of children who are listening, so if you are reading to a group of 30, that’s 30 story shares!
