So excited to enter the Spring Fling Kid Lit Contest hosted by Ciara O’Neal and Kaitlyn Sanchez. I hope you enjoy my entry.
A CROWN FOR RORY (143 WORDS)
The festival of flowers is today. HOORAY!
Before the parade starts, Rory and his little sister Maya get their face painted with matching rainbows on their cheeks. Maya buys an orange flower crown and Rory gets a wand.
Rory and Maya wave at flower princesses, each one on brightly adorned floats.
Princess Daisy rides on a float of white and yellow daisies. She blows kisses at the crowd.
A float of red, pink, and purple roses carries Princess Rose. Maya cheers for her the loudest.
Princess Pansy dances as she passes by. Rory wiggles and jiggles with her, too.
A marching band approaches.
The Flower Queen is coming!
“I want to be the May queen someday,” Rory says. “And be beautiful like her.”
Maya takes off her crown and places it on top of her brother’s head.
“You already are, Rory.”
