Whimsical Bedtime Stories for Children of All Ages
Chrissy was a new angel. She had only been in Heaven a few days.
Everything was so beautiful there, and everyone was so nice.
And even though she was the newest angel she had been given a very important task.
Chrissy was in charge of the rain.
Every week, on Monday and Thursday, she had to be sure that the clouds opened up and spread their raindrops all over the world.
Because every so often, every living thing on the earth needed rain.
trees needed the rain to grow tall and strong. The grass needed
the rain to stay green, and the cattails needed it to be soft and
Chrissy asked one of the older angels if he could
One night Chrissy flew up to see the Man In The Moon
to ask him if he knew how to make it rain.
The next morning, as the little angel was walking
around Heaven, skipping from cloud to cloud, she heard someone giggling.
The next day was Monday, and it was raining all over
So the next time it rains in your part of the world,
just think of Chrissy, way up in Heaven, tickling all the clouds
with her toes.

their two black cats, lived in Titletown, USA, his term for Green
Bay, Wisconsin. The web was fairly new to the general public back
then and Tony loved to surf the net. If he happened upon images
which captured his imagination, often he would be inspired to weave
a story around them.
