Another story for very small children, especially ones who like to play hide-and-go-seek with their grandmothers. Slightly older kids can check out Robby Robin stories.
Hugh’s Missing Grandma
“Boo hoo,” said Hugh, “what shall I do?
I can’t find Grandma, and I’ve looked hard, too.”
“You know your Grandma likes to hide,
I’m sure you can find her,” Daddy replied.
“Is she behind this wall?” Momma asked.
“I think she was there, but Grandma’s real fast.”
“Is she under the table?” Daddy then said.
“I tried to look there, but I bumped my head.”
“Is she behind the toy box?” Momma then asked.
“She’s not there now, but she might have snuck past.”
“Wait, I have an idea,” Grandpa said,
let’s see if she’s hiding under your bed.”
“Let’s be very quiet,” whispered Grandpa to Hugh.
They climbed the stairs,
crept into his room,
and together they bent down
and cried, “We found you!”
“Grandma,” laughed Hugh,
“you are such a good hider,
but Grandpa, for sure,
is the very best finder!”
