Everyone knows fairies are hard workers who look after the flowers and other growing things. But it can’t be all work and no play. Do they ever get a vacation? How do they enjoy their favorite season, summer?
Beloved fairy writer Liza Gardner Walsh explores the matter in a charming picture book of rhyming questions. Paired with warm and whimsical illustrations by Hazel Mitchell, this delightful book will help children discover just how fairies make the most of their busiest, most magical season of all.
And while the fairies do love to add some fun to everything they do, there’s also a gentle reminder here of our human connection to nature and the importance of nurturing it.
