The "Building Memories"  series by Laura Edmonds

Alfie and Other Short Stories

Volume 1

This is the first volume of short stories about the lives of Alfie, Zara, Toby and all their friends at the nursery. This series is simple and easy to read, getting to know each character and a tiny insight into what may come. 

There are ten characters in these stories, they are at nursery in this first set of stories, and so are aged between 3 and 4 years old. 

I love this series because of the reason I started to write, and these books and the memories of just where I wanted to go and have now gone.

Emma's Christmas and Other Short Stories

Volume 3

It’s Christmas time, my favourite time of the year.

 Charlie asks Santa for some new legs, he mentions that, “His wobble too much.” it gets me every time, but Charlie is brilliant at making the best of things and still enjoys everything anyone else does.

Emma is my favourite I would say in this series, as its exactly what we do, and makes things a tiny bit more magical, (in my eyes!) 

Poor George has now lost his Mum and I just want to scoop him up and take him home! I do believe these children are real!

Zara's Whoopsi and Other Short Stories

Volume 5

This series is about Whoopsi’s. The idea’s came from the daft things my children have done. 

I remember the sheer horror when my daughter cut her hair off, as “it was getting in the way!”, and when she drank some liquid ibuprofen because she was thirsty and “It was delicious!” Just imagine the panic, but luckily she was absolutely fine.

Thankfully, and thank god, she opened the bottle with the child proof lock again later, in front of the doctor. If she'd been unable to do so, I may have been writing these books with Douggie’s Dad, in prison!
