The “Little Tyke” by Ann Marie Stenhouse of Englewood, FL
I’m just a little tyke. That’s what my gram calls me. My mom says Gram spoils me too much. On sunny Sundays, Gram takes me for a ride on a big blue bus. She says to bring a pillow to sit on so I can see better out the windows. My favorite place to go is the city park. I can see my friend the “angel” when we ride by. Sometimes we get off the bus and walk over to where my angel is sitting. His wings are folded up on his back and he looks like he’s praying. I guess that’s what angels do. I sit next to him and pray. My gram says this makes her very happy and that makes me happy, too.
