Sleepy Time

When unable to sleep, I often do online searches for bedtime stories. This one caught my fancy:

"The Pig Who Wanted To Become The King - The young pig went into his mother's kitchen and packed himself a lunch. "I am leaving," he announced. "I am going to become the king." "Good luck," said Father Pig, (taking the news rather well). "Come back and visit us soon." This whimsical tale comes to us from Israel. Reading time: About 6 minutes
Age Group: Any age"

Sweet Dreams!!
