Looking for experienced children's storybook editor/ghostwriter

I am looking to get a series of children's stories edited by an experienced children's books editor/writer. The stories have been transcribed from Spanish audio to English text. What I am really trying to find is someone that can fill in the gaps and narrate the story based on the context rather than a literal editing job - there are nuances in the translation from Spanish to English that are rough, so the right fit will be someone that can take the general story line and bring their own imagination & magic to craft and simplify it into a short story.

The story behind these is they were bed time stories my mom used to tell my siblings and a project I am working on for her. The end goal is to have these fully illustrated as a series of stories. There are about 10 stories and approx 20 waiting translation from audio version, so there is opportunity to continue with this project in several stages.
