Celebrating Children's Day - Short Story for Kids : Valerie's Birthday Gift

Celebrating Children's Day 14th November - Short Story for Kids : Valerie's Birthday Gift

It was Valerie's eighth birthday and she was having a party in the lawns of her big mansion 'Rose Villa'. The house got its name from Rose, the lady of the house.

Valerie's father was the CEO of a big IT Company and was very well to do. They had ample lawns, a backyard, a rose garden, a swimming pool and a gym. At the back of the kitchen was a small well-kept kitchen garden. Nina, the cook was very proud of her kitchen garden which she tended lovingly.

Fresh vegetables grew there and Valerie used to come and ask cook to show her which vegetable was going to be cooked that day. Mr. Ramon Smith, the butler was busy directing the housemaids Gwenda and Sally to do up the house nicely in preparation for the party in the evening. Jacob, the gardener has his hands full arranging fresh flowers from the garden into various vases round the house. The entrance hall had a big bowl of red roses which looked really pretty.     

The caterers were busy arranging the lawns for the party. Sam, the driver had been sent to the best bakery shop in the town called 'Heart & Soul' to get Valerie's birthday cake. It was a Chocolate Cake in the shape of a clown. It was now 4'o clock and the guests were supposed to come at 6:30 pm. Rose was at the beauty parlour for a special hair-do and makeup. Valerie was being helped by her ayah Peggy to get ready. She was going to wear a Satin dress red in colour with matching gloves, socks and shoes. A red kerchief was put in the pocket of her dress and her hair was adorned with red hair clips and ribbons. She looked charming.
