Work Together, Aim High, Shine Bright Daniel Hears Crying A SHORT STORY FOR YOUNG CHILDREN BY CHRIS BOWER©2018
Daniel is in the Village Shop. He is buying some milk for his Mummy from Mr. Elliot, the shopkeeper.
Suddenly he hears crying from Mr. Elliott’s room at the back of the shop. Mr. Elliot carries on as if nothing has happened. Daniel thinks this is very strange and the crying worries him. He takes the milk home and tells Katy about the crying.
He says to Katy, “There must be something wrong. Will you come back to the Village Shop with me? If you buy some sweets this will keep Mr. Elliott busy and I will creep through the shop to the room at the rear, to see who is crying, and why they are upset.”
Katy agrees, but as Daniel is creeping to the room at the back of the shop, Mr. Elliott sees Daniel in a shop mirror.
“Where are you going?” asks Mr. Elliot.
Daniel does not know what to do but decides to tell Mr. Elliot the truth.
Mr. Elliott smiles and says to Daniel and Katy, “Wait here.”

He goes to the room at the back of the shop and comes back with a cage. In the cage is a parrot.
“Meet Polly,” says Mr. Elliot. “She likes to copy people. My wife likes to watch sad and romantic films on TV and these can make her cry. Polly copies the crying and that is what you heard, Daniel.”
Then Polly says “Hello! Sad film,” and starts to cry.
