Short story using the noun project symbols

If you haven't heard of the noun project, check it out, it offers public symbols for demonstration of concepts and ideas through images. Visualization can be very powerful for the portrayal of ideas and concepts verses language alone. This is why visualization as a whole is making a big splash on the scene, and not just symbols.

Regardless, for the longest time, I've had an idea for a short story, but I have no artistic skill for drawings, so I put together the story using the noun project symbols. I was hoping it might appeal to children as the idea was inspired from my family, specifically my mom and my sister's kids.

Regardless, I wanted to share if for free since I don't know anything about publishing or making money. Let me know what you think and if you like it.

The next step is to have my nieces and nephew maybe jazz up the pages with some kid color slop, but I think the black and white looks nice.
