Children’s Fairy Book collection. Different coloured fairies.
I remember being read books when I was younger about these fairies, each book was about a fairy which wore a different coloured dress, I remember there was a purple (or violet) fairy and an orange fairy etc. I think they were very popular (and may still be) when I was growing up, so about ten years ago. And I’m…

The stories also influenced the creation of many Disney stories and movies that were produced years later.12 BooksBlue Fairy Book (1889) – The first volume in Lang’s fairy tale series features some of the finest stories from around the world, most of them old favorites: 37 in all including “Sleeping Beauty,” “Rumpelstiltskin,” “Cinderella,” “The Arabian Nights,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Hansel and Gretel,” “Jack the Giantkiller,” and “Puss in Boots.”Red Fairy Book (1890)- The famed folklorist collects 37 tales of enchantment, ranging from the familiar (“Rapunzel,” “Jack and the Beanstalk,” and “The Golden Goose”) to lesser-known stories (“The Voice of Death,” “The Enchanted Pig,” and “The Master Thief”). Sources include French, Russian, Danish, and Romanian tales as well as Norse mythology.Green Fairy Book (1892) – Giants, dwarfs, monsters, and magicians star in 42 classic stories from China, Russia, Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Scotland, and England. Includes “The Three Little Pigs” and “The Half-Chick.”Yellow Fairy Book (1894) – American Indian, Russian, German, Icelandic, French, and other stories — 48 in all — among them “The Tinder-box,” “The Nightingale,” and “How to Tell a True Princess.”Pink Fairy Book (1897) – Forty-one Japanese, Scandinavian, and Sicilian tales: “The Snow-Queen,” “The Cunning Shoemaker,” “The Two Brothers,” “The Merry Wives,” “The Man without a Heart,” and more. All the stories are narrated in the clear, lively prose for which Lang was famous and are considered to be the very best English versions available.Grey Fairy Book (1900) – Thirty-five stories, many from oral traditions, and others from French, German, Italian collections, but all told in the common language of the fairy tale. Includes “The Goat-faced Girl,” “The Sunchild,” “The Street Musicians,” “The Twin Brothers,” “Prunella,” and many more filled with giants, magicians, fairies, ogres, and other fantastic creatures.Violet Fairy Book (1901) – Roumania, Japan, Serbia, Lithuania, Africa, Portugal, and Russia are among the sources of these 35 stories that tell of a haunted forest, chests of gold coins, a magical dog, and a man who outwits a dragon. Perhaps the best English versions available of these classic stories.Crimson Fairy Book (1903) – One of England’s top folklorists presents another volume in his much-loved “rainbow” series of fairy books. These 36 stories originated in Hungary, Russia, Finland, Iceland, Tunisia, the Baltic, and elsewhere. They include “The Cottager and His Cat,” “The Crab and the Monkey,” “Little Wildrose,” “The Gold-bearded Man,” and others.Brown Fairy Book (1904) – 32 less familiar folk tales from the American Indians, Australian Bushmen, African Kaffirs, and from Persia, Lapland, Brazil, and India. Different enough to capture all imaginations.Orange Fairy Book (1906) – 33 tales from Jutland, Rhodesia, Uganda, and various other European traditions: “The Magic Mirror,” “The Two Caskets,” “The Clever Cat,” “The White Slipper,” “The Girl-Fish, and more.”Olive Fairy Book (1907) – Eight Punjabi tales, five from Armenia, 16 others. An enchanting world of flying dragons, ogres, fairies, and princes transformed into white foxes.Lilac Fairy Book (1910) – Over 30 tales from Portugal, Ireland, Wales, and points East and West, among them “The Brown Bear of Norway,” “The Enchanted Deer,” “The Story of a Very Bad Boy,” and “The Brownie of the Lake.”www.childrens-books.us/rainbow-magic-…www.ebay.com/bhp/childrens-fairy-tale-…www.vintagecobweb.com/2012/09/andrew-…but see source below
What are some good early chapter books for a 6 year old girl. (first grader).
My Daughter loves to read and her reading has just taken off this year. She now is starting to bridge over into easier chapter books. She has gone past most of the books we have at home for her and I am looking for some good books that she can be reading as well as some she can be growing into. she currently is…
First, keep in mind that many picture books are quite challenging, so there’s no need for her to move completely into chapter books unless that’s what she wants to do. My 7-year-old reads at probably a 3rd-4th grade level, and she still reads both picture books and chapter books. My 9-year-old also enjoys picture books as well.Some suggestions of chapter books… (I don’t know the reading levels on all of these, so you’d have to check, but they are age-appropriate.)Junie B. JonesMagic TreehouseA to Z MysteriesRainbow Magic FairiesNancy Drew Notebooks (I think that’s what it’s called.)Nancy Drew & the Clue CrewPicture books…Bink & GollieFancy NancyMercy Watson (This is actually a chapter book series, but they have lots of pictures.)Nate the GreatMagic SchoolbusEloise (may be too hard for her to read on her own)Dr. Seuss booksbooks by Mo Willems — some are very simple, but very fun to read. The “Elephant & Piggie” books and the ones with the pigeon are written like comics, so she can work on her expression as she reads.Chapter books that you can read together… (too hard for her to read on her own)Little House on the PrairieFunny FrankCharlotte’s WebThe Trumpet of the SwanDisney Fairy books (if she likes Tinkerbell)Captain UnderpantsThere are really so many great books out there. Just go to the library and start flipping through a few. I’ve heard my kids’ teachers tell them to read the first couple pages of a book and see how it feels. There should be a couple words they don’t know in the first page or two in order for it to be challenging enough, but if there are many more than that, they’re not quite ready to read it on their own.You can also use www.arbookfind.com to search for books at your daughter’s level or to see what level a book is.
