Little Ty is very silly during dinnertime grace and Clancy doesn't like it. When the two brothers go through the hole in the magical willow tree, they are transported to the highlands of Scotland, long ago — where nothing is attempted without a lovely prayer of honor. A Scottish hare, two badger brothers, and a red kite inspire the boys to remember the importance of saying thanks.
Projects, Crafts, and Recipes for this Story
Sparkle Kitchen: Skirlie
On a chilly, damp spring day, there's nothing that makes me want to say “thanks” more than a pipping hot bowl of oatmeal. And if you make it like the Scots do, there's no need to limit it to breakfast time.
“Skirlie”, or savory Scottish oatmeal, makes a stick-to-your-ribs meal for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Sparkle Crafts: Simple Paper Kite
This project is great for producing a well-flying kite in 15 minutes or less.
