Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week there’s a different Top Ten list. It’s a great way to find and connect with other awesome bloggers.
So today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is a school read freebie and I’ve chosen “Top 10 Rabbit Ears Books You Should read to Kids at School” (because this is a site for mostly Rabbit Ears stuff and these books would be great for school children all alike)!
1. John Henry
For anyone who wants to read some good books about “John Henry,” I would highly recommend checking out this version of the classic tale, which is narrated by Denzel Washington along with music by the late B.B. King!
2. East of the Sun West of the Moon
If you want a nice story that is set in Scandinavia / Norway, I would strongly suggest reading “East of the Sun West of the Moon” which is a truly heartwarming and magical story narrated by Max Von Sydow along with artwork by Vivienne Flesher!
3. The Tiger and the Brahmin
If you want to introduce the culture of India to kids, then I would suggest checking out “The Tiger and the Brahmin” which takes place in India and also features tigers that children would love! It is also narrated by Ben Kingsley along with music by the late Ravi Shankar!
4. Princess Scargo and the Birthday Pumpkin
If you want a great Native American story to tell to children for Native American studies, I would definitely check out “Princess Scargo and the Birthday Pumpkin,” which is narrated by Geena Davis!
5. Finn McCoul
If you want to read a good story that takes place in Ireland for children who want to read more about Ireland, I would suggest reading “Finn McCoul” which is such a wonderful folktale that takes place in Ireland and is narrated by Catherine O’Hara!
6. The Emperor and the Nightingale
Trying to introduce children to not only Hans Christian Andersen tales, but to Chinese stories also? Then, I would highly recommend checking out “The Emperor and the Nightingale,” which is narrated by Glenn Close along with music by Mark Isham!
7. Jack and the Beanstalk
Want to read more versions of “Jack and the Beanstalk” to children? I would definitely recommend checking out “Jack and the Beanstalk” which is narrated by Michael Palin along with music by Dave Stewart!
8. Pecos Bill
If kids at school really enjoy the “Pecos Bill” mythos, I would highly recommend checking out “Pecos Bill” which is probably one of the funniest interpretations of the tale as it was narrated by the late Robin Williams!
9. The Fool and the Flying Ship
If you want to introduce Russian folktales to children, then I would highly recommend “The Fool and the Flying Ship” which is the funniest version of the folktale ever created and is another tale that is narrated by the late Robin Williams!
10. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
Want a good spooky read for children? I would highly recommend “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” which is a nice and spooky tale narrated by Glenn Close!
