Childrens Story: The Pixie

My son is in first grade and starting to read little pamphlet type books for class, I thought I would start creating my own books for him to read, simple books containing 2 sentences per page with picture on each page and no more than four or five pages.  These miniature books take about 5-8 minutes for him to read and are more interesting than most of the books he brings home to read.  I incorporate the words he is learning in school into the stories to help reinforce the words he is supposed to memorize.

This story is titled “The Pixie”


The Pixie


The Pixie flew near the sea.

Cold wind blew through her wings.


An orc was waiting for her.

The orc was about to charge.


The pixie cast a magic spell.

Cool magic bolts shot from her hand.


The Orc was hit in the back

The Orc ran away scared.


The Pixie was safe at last.

The Pixie then took a bath in the sea.

The End

      Nah, I can’t take credit for the artwork, did some searches for pixies and orcs on images.google.com then took the images and converted them to black and white and added some cheesy effects.

    I think that every child enjoys the magical realm of pixies. This concept is incredible, and I only see it as being a successful way to teach a child to use their imagination. Your killing two birds with one stone by teaching the adoration of literature, poetry, and art. This is amazing and refreshing.
