The Tiptoe Guide to Tracking Fairies

Publisher: Tanglewood Press ISBN: 9781933718200

Some people think that fairies only live far away, in magical lands. Many fairies do. But there are some fairies, a few, who live all around us. And we can see where they live if we know how to look for them. Spring is a perfect time to go outside. Let's go look for clues. This will be an adventure! Could a tulip be a good place for hide-and-seek? Could a bit of dandelion fluff be a pillow? They could be, if fairies live nearby. This book invites kids to have a backyard adventure searching for the telltale signs of fairies who might be residing all around them. Not only can children "search" for fairies in the book's unique blend of art and photography, but they will also be encouraged to discover the wonder and magic in nature, whether in a backyard or a local park.
