Grammie's Bedtime Stories
Grammie's Bedtime Stories is comprised of three short stories that Kathleen Fowler-Clark has told to her great-grandchildren at bedtime many times during their visits. Her great-grandchildren love the bedtime stories, and thus this book will appeal to children of ages three through eight. The stories are fanciful fairytales, meant to inspire courage and self-confidence when confronting frightening situations. Each story has its own unique happy ending in which these important life lessons are learned. Fowler-Clark published this book for her grandchildren, Katie, Emily, and Rachel, as a remembrance of the time they spent together during the girls' childhood. Her grandchildren are all grown now. Katie is married and finishing her graduate work for an RN nursing degree, Emily graduated and is a cosmetologist, and Rachel wants to be in the criminology field as an FBI or CSI agent.
