This books for 6 year olds was well-written, had wonderful characters, great adventure, lots of humor and just.
This was a playful and fun book for 6 year olds with a few flaws.
The stories of the Brothers Grimm. Sabrina and Daphne Grimm have been shipped off from one foster home to another for many years. What they’re told that their paternal grandmother has agreed to take care of them, though Sabrina becomes very dubious, having heard that the woman died many years ago.
However, after meeting the slightly eccentric woman and seeing family photographs, the girls are more apt to believe these tall tales. The transition from NYC to Ferryport Landing is a shock, though not as much as the truth behind their ancestry.
Grimms have long been around to ensure that Everafters are protected, but also abide by all the rules, keeping humans from locking them away. That being said, the form of protection offered is isolating them in their current township and not permitting any further exploration.
Surely a factor in all the resentment. Grandma Grimm explained further that she is a form of detective, working to puzzle together some of the odd happenings around Ferryport Landing while also battling the sinister ways of Mayor Charming, once an English prince and now a power-hungry fool.
With Sabrina and Daphne on board to help, they come across a house that’s been flattened by what one can only presume is a large boot, beanstalk leaves surrounding the property.
The girls watch their grandmother in action as she opens up the investigation and begins positing what might have happened. However, as luck would have it, a giant returns to the scene—large boot and all—where he scoops up Grandmother Grimm, leaving the girls in a sense of panic.
A new mystery on their hands—how to retrieve their grandmother—the girls seek the assistance of other Everafters, while dodging some of the more nefarious characters who cross their paths. One can only hope that this will have a happy ending for all.
16. The Coming of the Unicorn: Scottish Folk Tales for Children (Kelpies)
Stories are something you carry with you, something to last your entire life, to be passed on to your children, and their children for evermore.’ Duncan Williamson came from a family of Travelling People, who told stories around the campfire for entertainment and for teaching.
As a child, Duncan learnt the ways of the world through stories: ‘My father’s knowledge told us how to live in this world as natural human beings — not to be greedy, not to be foolish, not to be daft or selfish — by stories.’ In this collection, he passes on some of these wonderful children’s folk and fairy tales.
For over sixty years Duncan travelled around Scotland — on foot, then in a horse and cart, and later an old van — collecting tales, which not only come from the Travelling People but from the crofters, farmers and shepherds he met along the way.
This collection includes tales about cunning foxes and storytelling cats, hunchbacked ogres and beautiful unicorns, helpful broonies and mysterious fairies, rich kings and fearsome warriors, as well as those about ordinary folk trying to make their way in the world.
The stories have been written down as faithfully as possible to Duncan’s unique storytelling voice, full of colour, humour and life.

This is a difficult story – one that rings so true, but is probably a bit hard for many children.
But it’s an important story, too, whether a child is on either side of the story. The book is about bullying, but it’s the subtle kind of bullying, the ignoring and whispering and refusal to acknowledge someone.

The first thing Chloe notices is that Maya’s clothes are shabby and she has on spring shoes in winter. Sitting next to Chloe, Maya makes one friendly overture after another but each time Chloe turns aways and rebuffs her.
Even in the schoolyard, whenever Maya comes over and asks Chloe and her friends to play jacks, jump rope, pick up sticks, they turn their backs on her and walk away.
Maya is different from everyone else, she’s the girl with funny food, second hand clothes and shoes, not the kind of person they want to associate with.
Then one day, Maya doesn’t come to school. That morning the teacher gives her students a lesson on kindness. and the ripple effect our actions have in the world.
She tells the class the Each little thing we do goes out, like a ripple, into the world. Each child is give a stone to drop into a bowl of water to see its ripple effect and to tell of a act of kindness they have recently done.
Even small things count, the teacher tells Chloe, but sadly, she has not a single kindness to report and has to give up her stone.
After a few days absence, the teacher announces that Maya has moved and will not be returning to the class.
In the afternoon, walking home from school, Chloe has a lot on her mind, thinking about what the teacher had said about kindness and how she had missed her chance with Maya and now, it was too late.

24. Corby Flood
CORBY FLOOD is a very short, happy, light hearted dream of a books for 6 year olds.
Corby Flood is an 9 year old girl who goes on an adventure on a decrepit old cruise liner.
She is leaving her place of home and moving to another to start a new school with her 4 brothers and sister.
The adventure is mainly about Corby wandering around the failing ship getting in the way of the evil company of clowns, who are archetypical in their badness.
Just the type of clowns that scare the daylights out of you in their nasty nefarious ways.
Each clown is rather unique and two of the them Mr Times Roman and Mr Franklin Gothic (yes we called them the font clowns) have awesome characters to work with.
I built 5 distinctive character accents for the five clowns and I have to say, I had a lot of fun reading the clown parts in the story.
