Online books and stories -- some classic, some new -- for intelligent children who like to read, laugh, and think. The site publishes drawings and written. I am so glad to have found this book through BookRix. My 2nd grade daughter is going to present a story board on this book at her school's. Once upon a time a very poor woodcutter lived in a tiny cottage in the forest with his two children, Hansel and Gretel. His second wife often ill-treated the children.
