Project Description

I need about 20 short children stories about a typical middle

class family. Each story should be about 500-800 words, and

describe a single activity or day. These are for a 2nd grade

reading comprehension app. So no big words or long sentences.

Pay is $20 per story, or $400 total.

Some typical titles:

Billy Goes to the Library

Sally Learns to Ride a Bike

A Trip to the Zoo

Planting the garden

Picking Tomatoes

A Visit to the Park

etc ...

Here is an example:


Billy Goes to the Library

It is late. It is time for Billy to go to bed. Billy brushes his teeth

and washes his face. Then he climbs into bed. Dad comes into

his room to read a book with Billy. But Billy says they had read all

the books. Dad says that in the morning they will go to

the library, and get some new books to read.

In the morning, Billy is very excited. He rides his bike to

the library with his dad. They ride for a long time. Billy

is tired when they get to the library.

They go into the library, and Billy is very happy. He has

never seen so many books before. He wants to find some books

about animals. But he cannot find any animal books.

Dad shows him how to use the computer to find a book. Billy types

in "animal". But the computer shows too many books. There are too

many animals books in the library, so Billy types "farm animals".

Now there are fewer books. Billy sees the shelf number. Dad helps

him find the right shelf.

Billy finds many books about farm animals. He carries them

to the front of the library. Dad takes the library card from

his wallet. He holds it under the scanner on the computer.

Then Billy puts each book under the scanner so the computer can

read the barcode. The computer beeps each time it scans a


When all the books are scanned, they go out of the library.

Dad puts the books in the basket on his bike. They

ride the bikes back home.

Soon it is late and time for Billy to go to bed. Billy brushes

his teeth and washes his face. He climbs into bed. His

father comes into his room to read a book with Billy. They

have many books to read. Billy is very happy.
