5.0 out of 5 stars THE GREEN RIBBON June 17 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I remember first looking at this book after my Kindergarten teacher had finished reading it. I loved it so much and I remember thinking it was the most wonderful book in the world. I had totally forgotten what the title of the book was and it wasn't until recently that I stumbled upon it and bought it. The stories are great and sometimes a bit humorous if you have a morbid sense of humor that is. Anyway, I now read it to my little brother and he loves it. This is one of those scary story books that's scary, but not too scary to keep kids up at night. It's an excellent investment to make and it's something I'm almost positive a child will treasure forever.

I remember reading this book as a kid, I must of rented it from the library like 30 times! Reading was very difficult for me cause I was dyslexic and this book was exciting enough to keep my interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good source of short stories for telling! Feb. 12 2003
By Dan
Format:Paperback
This book contains six very short "scary" stories and one "scary" poem. The stories are actually shortened verions of old folk stories. The poem, which is quite good, was collected from an eight-year-old, but it's unclear as to whether it was authored by that eight-year-old. This is all documented at the end of the book.
There is even a short FOWARD to the book which encourages young readers to TELL these stories. Even though I didn't realize this was part of the book, this is exactly the reason I purchased it--for my students to use in learning storytelling.
Even though shortened for young readers, the stories are complete. And even though they are written so that beginning readers can handle the text, the stories don't suffer. (But, please be ready to help the young reader with a couple of the words!)
Without actually testing the text, I would estimate the readability level to be appropriate for later second grade.
Finally, be advised that these stories DO contain an element of "scariness" that MIGHT play on some childrens' minds.

4.0 out of 5 stars It was good Oct. 18 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I thought it was a good book but I don't think it should be for little kids in pre-school because it was a little too scarey for them. I especially liked the story about the little kid who has a ribbon around her neck and when alfred untied it her head fell off.
