This is a very sweet story and well written. It flowed as easily as the creamy milk. I think you have a winner.

You truly captured the scene perfectly. I felt as if I were there with the boy and the man. So touching and so real. Great storytelling.

Charming and delightful--would expect to see this at a higher level.
Well done! I liked the message in this story...very tender and sweet. Great title!
So sweet and tender. I loved the entire story and the message of kindness and purity in the six-year-old Paul.
You've written your piece so well!

A charming piece, indeed. It made me yearn for a glass of that cold chocolate milk.

I especially enjoyed the feel and tone of the dialog.

Well done.

I had to smile at "Frog Pond" being "a paradise for boys and frogs". :) This was a sweet treat to read. I could see this little guy with his pride over his accomplishment. :) Great title too (it all makes sense after reading the story). :)

Ruth, I love how you have given this little guy such a great mix of creativity, determination and dignity that his win has lifted the spirits of those who helped him to achieve it. Well done.

what a cute story. can sure picture his excitement at getting to drink the milk.

depression times probably have such great stories and I am picturing this small town this boy grew up in with the frogs, dairy farm, etc.

good story
