Summer has arrived in the blink of an eye! This month, we’ve got a great story that fits right into those Summer vibes with some kite flying. Our June featured author is Tobin who wrote the story, “The Fairy Lost Her Kite.” Let’s find out what happens in Tobin’s story!

There once was a fairy named Lisa. She loved to fly her kite. One day, it was so windy that it blew her kite away. Lisa was very sad!

Lisa ran to her parents after she lost her kite. Her dad gave her a magic rope. With the rope in hand, Lisa flew way up into the clouds to grab her kite. The magic rope worked!

Lisa ran back to her dad and returned the magic rope. “Thank you, Dad!” said Lisa. “I love you.” Lisa was so happy to get her kit back that she flew it all day long.
