Home School Book Review, July 15, 2012 (view all comments by Home School Book Review)
Have you ever seen a fairy house? The tradition of building fairy houses originated on several islands off the coast of New England. They are small structures made from natural materials, such as sticks, bark, dry grasses, pebbles, shells, feathers, seaweed, pine cones, nuts, and even pumpkins, by children, gardeners, artists, and nature lovers for fairies and nature’s friends to visit. Their diversity is astounding. This unique collection of photographs, in which you will find tree habitats, cottages, gardens, fairy tale settings, seaside homes, whimsical villages, amusements, and even a fairy library of miniature books crafted out of birch bark, is chosen from thousands of fairy houses built at events and workshops held by co-author Tracy Kane. What do you think a fairy circus would look like?
Tracy’s goal with the award-winning “Fairy Houses Series” of books is to inspire families to connect with nature through the activity of creating these small habitats for fairies. Co-author Barry Kane photographs the fairy houses. Together, they partner with communities to develop “Fairy Houses Tours” which benefit many non-profit organizations. The “Fairy Houses Series” consists of “The Photo Series” with Fairy Houses…Everywhere!, Fairy Houses and Beyond!, and now Fairy Houses…Unbelievable!; a mystery book, Forest Secrets, for ages 8 and up; and “The Illustrated Series” of illustrated picture books with Fairy Houses, Fairy Boat, and Fairy Flight, as well as a DVD Kristen’s Fairy House, for ages 3 and up. And these books are not just for kids. What began as a child’s activity has quickly captured the hearts of all ages. Anyone who enjoys beautiful, natural photography will love this book.
