I picked this book up for my daughter who loves the Daisy Meadow collection and is a keen street dancer. I actually caught her reading it to her five year old sister and then both going off to make their own rountine and story. It brought tears to my eyes but also explains why I feel I really need to recommend this book as it not only encouraged reading for pleasure but also got them into imagination roles.
As mentioned the story is one from the huge range of Daisy Meadow books. This one is number 51 and you can either buy as part as a set or just as a single book. Buying as a set is better value for money. The set is aimed at age 6-9 year olds and can be read either independently or read to a parent/carer. Although there is a huge range of books you don't need to have read the earlier ones to understand what is going on. I would start with your girls name and once they've read one I'm sure they will want more!
The story itself is about an outing to the disco. During the story the girls have to help Jade the disco fairy get her magical ribbon back from a goblin. They need to get it back or the disco will be ruined. Will they manage it in time?
It normally retails about £3.79 from most good retailers like WHSmith and you can buy online from Amazon.
This book is aimed at girls from 6 years to about 10 years. This is book number 51 in the Rainbow Magic series and is part of The Dance Fairies mini series.
This story starts with 2 young girls who are great friend and are going to a disco. The girls are familiar with the fairies from previous stories. Their friend Jade the disco fairy has had her magical ribbon stolen by one of Jack Frosts Goblins. When the girls turn up at the school disco, everyone there is dancing very badly except for one strange looking guy over in the corner of the school hall. The girls go over to investigate and discover he is the goblin dressed up. The girls must help Jade get back her magical ribbon from the goblin, without anyone else at the disco finding out. The girls and Jade tickle the goblin until he lets go of the ribbon and they return it to Jade and save the disco.
This is a great story and has helped my 7 year old daughter along her way of being a fluent and confident young reader. The story is very interesting and it keeps her gripped at all times. The story is broken down into 6 chapters. There are lots of pictures throughout the book to break up the text. This book has 73 pages. The last few pages in the book, list the other Rainbow Magic titles available (around 70 so far). These books are widely available from many retailers, we got this one from Asda for 3.99
I would recommend this book to any young reader, to help them become more confident reading on their own or to others. The book is laid out in a way that is not intimidating to an early reader. I find that just the look of some books can put off my daughter from reading them on her own, but not this one. Another great thing about this book is that it is part of a huge series, but if you have not read previous stories, it won't matter as each book has substance in it's own right.
This book is currently available on Amazon.co.uk for around 3 pounds.
This book is written by Daisy Meadows.
