Author: Buddy Mays
Publication: July 16, 2012
Publisher: Earthworm Publishing
Audience: 6 and up
Summary: Did you know that every time a caterpillar laughs out loud, a flower fairy is born? Or that Butterfly Tag is a favorite flower fairy game? Or that flower fairies are all girls because if there were boy flower fairies, they would always be sweaty and muddy and stinky and have worms in their pockets, and nobody would like that!
Most people don’t realize it, but these tiny magical creatures—the most common of all fairies—inhabit many well-tended flower gardens—possibly even yours. In this delightful, beautifully-illustrated children’s book, fairy expert, author, and prize-winning photographer Buddy Mays, provides young and old readers with secrets to successful flower fairy watching.
My Thoughts: This is a very cute book. My assistant reviewer (my daughter) absolutely loved this book. We were both drawn to the book because of the intriguing cover. My favorite part is the beautiful and well thought out photography on every page. It is refreshing to see kind and generous qualities being encouraged. The tips on how to seek out flower fairies will keep a child busy for hours. Jessie wants to start a flower garden so that the flower fairies will move in. This will also make a cute personalized book. A child will love having their picture placed throughout the book. This is available as an e-book at a great price. `
