Staff Pick: Come to the Fairies’ Ball

Staff Pick: Come to the Fairies’ Ball

Come to the Fairies' Ball

All the fairies are excited to be invited to the King’s ball, except for one young fairy whose only party dress is in tatters.

“Come to the Fairies’ Ball” is a children’s book, written in rhyme with a cadence as delightful as it is rhythmic, good for reading aloud to a child. The story features a magnificent ball to which all fairies are invited, but one female fairy who finds her dress ruined almost does not make it—until she becomes determined and finds a way. This story teaches children success is mostly a matter of making one’s own luck. Good story, lovely illustrations, happy ending!

Kid Review: The Magic Cake Shop

Kid Review: The Magic Cake Shop

The Magic Cake Shop

When ten-year-old Emma Burblee’s beautiful but snobbish parents banish her to Nummington for the summer with her loathsome Uncle Simon, she is befriended by the seemingly magical town baker, Mr. Crackle, who soon becomes a target of Simon and his associate.

I loved this book because it was about baking. Even though it was fiction, it had a wonderful storyline to it. I hope that people can read it all the time and it gets put in my school library!! Girls and boys, request and read this book. Yes, it was that good!!
