Do Fairies Bring the Spring? by Liza Gardner Welsh

We received this title from the publisher for review.

Story: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Illustration: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

After a long winter s rest with little to do, are the fairies ready to start something new, Do they use tiny brushes and oil pastels to paint crocuses, lilacs, and daffodils? Everyone knows fairies love spring flowers and summer sun, but is it the fairies who wake up the earth as the snow melts? Do they entice the trees to turn green and the flowers to grow? 

Magical Spring Time Themed Book

Do Fairies Bring Spring, asks the questions that gets children thinking if it is possible that the wonders of spring might not exist without the assistance of the fairies.  The idea is presented as quite plausible, which makes this a good one for reading to expand on through play and imagination.  It would also be a fun side addition to a spring unit for younger children.  

The whimsical illustrations are absolutely beautiful.  Evelyn seemed to enjoy pointing at all of the little details that were in many of the scenes, and I found each picture beautifully charming.

At the end of the book there are tips for attracting fairies for spring, which are actually very practical little projects that would be good to do with little ones.
