Awesome Science Experiments for Kids: for scouts, classrooms, groups, homeschool, and bored kids! (Busy Kids, Happy Kids Book 3)

by Deb Graham

A bored child is a sad thing! Children are endlessly curious about the world around them. A child who can look at their surroundings and wonder “what would happen if…” will be brighter than most, and certainly more interesting to be around. Loaded with simple science experiments using materials and ingredients found at home, Awesome Science Experiments for Kids by Deb Graham is ideal for children in any setting, including home school, classroom, scout troops, day camp, even sleepovers and rainy afternoons. Easy, educational, interactive ideas for any school science project on chemistry, electricity, temperature and more. What a fun was to trigger their imagination!
Any time you can mix fun and education, teaching and learning, your child is bound to love it. Almost all experiments are easy enough for a child to do, with a wow factor better than any store bought toy. Step by step instructions make interactive science a joy for kids ages 5-15.
It’s great to see young eyes light up, as they grasp a new concept! They will naturally want to expand the projects, trying new ways to do it differently next time. Some experiments will â??fail’, but there is no failure if a child learns something! Jump right in!

The Arabian Nights (Best Navigation, Active TOC)(Feathers Classics)

by Andrew Lang

This work contains an active table of contents (HTML), which makes reading easier to make it more enjoyable.

One Thousand and One Nights is a collection of stories collected over many centuries by various authors, translators and scholars in various countries across the Middle East and South Asia. These collections of tales trace their roots back to ancient Arabia and Yemen, ancient Indian literature and Persian literature, ancient Egyptian literature and Mesopotamian mythology, ancient Syria and Asia Minor, and medieval Arabic folk stories from the Caliphate era. Though the oldest Arabic manuscript dates from the fourteenth century, scholarship generally dates the collection’s genesis to somewhere between AD 800-900.

Dark Fairy Tale Queen Series: Books 1-3: (Sinful Cinderella, Sneaky Snow White, Rotten Rapunzel)

by Anita Valle

The Grimmer side of your favorite fairy tales, retold with humor and sinister surprises.

Sinful Cinderella

I’m not who they think I am. A docile girl who meekly obeys her stepmother and stepsisters. Some kind of sick angel who cheerfully bears their mistreatment. That’s what I WANT them to think. Because then they won’t suspect what I’m really up to.

The ball, the prince – it’s all part of my plan to come out on top. Stepmother and her demented daughters will pay for every floor I have scoured, every sneer I have borne. They don’t know about the white magic, how I use it to enhance myself. They can’t see that my heart is black as midnight, rotten as a poisoned apple.

They’re about to find out.

Sneaky Snow White

Cinderella killed my father.

She thinks she can do anything because she’s the Evil Queen. And my stepmother. The only thing she truly loves is her Demon Mirror. But the more she gazes into that thing, the crazier she becomes.

But I am no longer a child. I won’t allow the Evil Queen to poison my heart and my home. Although my skin is white as snow, my soul is far from pure. I will make Cinderella suffer for her sins.

Sure as my name is Snow White.

Rotten Rapunzel

I have been in this tower for fifteen years. Snow White has frozen me inside it and covered the rest of our kingdom with ice and snow. I can’t remember what summer is like. And I have never seen people or had a friend.

It’s not fair. I’m a princess, the daughter of Cinderella. This kingdom belongs to ME. Not to the nasty new queen who’s taken over. Snowy ruined my life, she doesn’t care about me. She only keeps me because I cry magic tears.

I have to escape. Have to take back the palace before my lost twin gets it. Have to punish Snowy for wrecking the kingdom. Have to make at least ONE stupid friend. And I really have to do something about my hair.

Sinful Cinderella has over 300 5-Star Reviews!

“I’ve read quite a few fairy tale revisions and watched their counterpart movies and TV shows, but none were as creative and entertaining as Anita Valle’s Sinful Cinderella. Valle’s premise strikes a logical chord. ‘How could she [Cinderella] stay so sweet and cheerful when she gets nothing but abuse from her family?’ With that in mind, Valle creates multi-dimensional characters everyone can relate to. […] About herself, Cinderella says, ‘I’m not who you think I am, a docile girl who meekly obeys her stepmother and stepsisters. […] They don’t know about the white magic, how I use it to enhance myself.’ […] And that white magic is very special. For every good deed this Cinderella performs, the magic coalesces in a magical vial giving to her by her fairy godmother. It’s made her face prettier, her eyes bluer, and her feet smaller. Elira, Cinderella’s stepmother has turned her stepdaughter into a full time servant like the Grimm’s version of the story. […] Cinderella describes Stepmother to be ‘as comforting as a cactus.’ […] Like Disney’s Cinderella, Valle’s story also has a fairy godmother, but this one isn’t very nice. Cinderella calls her â??Godnutter’ because she’s a crazy woman. Her hair is unkempt, her clothes crumpled, and she’s always smoking a pipe. This fairy is very scary and only got the job because she’s Cinderella’s estranged aunt. Her basic job description is to protect Cinderella, but she’s pretty much failed at that. Finally, there’s Edgar, the not-so prince charming. […] Since his wife died of questionable causes, the prince is looking for a mother for his obnoxious daughter. […] Not to reveal too much about the plot, be prepared to laugh-out-loud […]. It’s a marvelous read.” -Michael Thal, Pop’s Blog
