Dreaming of Fairy Hunting
Backyard Fairies by Phoebe Wahl and published by Tundra Books has us craving some warm spring weather. It seems like ever since this book arrived on our doorstep, the fairies have been playing tricks with us, along with Mother Nature, to ensure we never get out on a fairy hunt.
Backyard Fairies has us dreaming of Spring and wishing for time to get outside without putting on a pile of extra clothing, and exploring the world around us in hopes of finding a little bit of magic hidden under a "suspicious-looking stone". A perfect choice for April, poetry month, this lovely rhyming story is short on text but so full of incredible detail in the illustrations. It's a lovely book to be shared during a nice little snuggle session or as a read aloud with a whole group, you will love searching for the little hidden fairies on each page. Backyard Fairies has inspired us to create our own little fairy garden this spring. Now all we have to do is wait for that warm spring weather to arrive.
