Fiction for Children
Teamwork tops competition and family proves stronger than ambition in this exciting ride through a difficult baseball season.
Summer vacation, summer camp, or just dreaming of warm weather and faraway places: these tales follow summer children as they laugh, cry and explore their world.
Mysteries and treasures can be found anywhere - even in a teapot. Read Treasure in a Teapot in this fun-filled anthology.
Do children share some of the character traits and problems as older people? Fear and shyness. Hopes and dreams. In "Like Ruth and Naomi" two people reach across a canyon of years and find that love and caring works for any age.

Summer Shorts

Assateague Island is a barrier island off the east coast of Maryland. The southern end of the island is called Chincoteague and many kids who love to read already know about the life of a horse named Misty who lived on that southern end of the island. But on the northern end, the wild horses are truly wild. No one rounds them up. No one sells them. They are free to wander among campers and visitors to the state and national parks that make up Assateague.

Campers at Assateague Island have the opportunity to visit the beach at the first sight of dawn and the last glimpse of dusk. If you do that, you may be surprised by an amazing sight. Many of the wild horses will come down to the oceanís edge to stand in the sea.

If you wonder why the horses stand in the sea, read Why do the Horses Stand in the Sea? in this delightful collection of summer vacation stories.
