Good Night, Fairies
Good Night, Fairies
by Kathleen Hague

'Of all the world's creatures, there is nothing so like a fairy as a child,' a mother whispers in this gentle and reassuring bedtime story. At her child's bedside, she tenderly reveals all of the delightful secrets about how fairies live, work, and play. They teach birds to sing and draw rainbows to brighten rainy days...they make spring flowers bloom and scatter autumn leaves...and when little animals are sleepy, the fairies read bedtime stories to them.

Bursting with luscious images filled with over 300 fairies, here is the perfect good-night treat by a best-selling author-illustrator team. A special fairy with a red cap hidden on every spread is just one of the many wondrous things that can be discovered within.

Enrapture your little one's imagination with Hague's "Good Night Fairies." The colorful pictures tell the story in far more detail than the words through vibrant depictions of all the many different places and events in the world where fairies can be found. The pictures provide a vehicle for your child's imagination to run wild and lose themselves in the fantasy of fairies being real and all around us. For older children, there are even the additional fun challenges of counting all 321 fairies throughout the book and finding the hidden red-capped fairy on each page.

Just like the small child in the story, your little one will want to know more about fairies; where do they live? Are they real? Can I have one? You have the option of expanding upon the fairy tales, or simply repeating the mother's response, "Of all the world's creatures, there is nothing so like a fairy as a child." The mixture of real events that your child is familiar with - winter snow, birds singing, rainbows, and flowers blooming - with the fantastical elements of fairies, mermaids, and unicorns, will encourage your child to wonder if it all could be real. They may start looking for fairies when they hear birds sing, or when they close their eyes at night, as "it is the fairies who welcome them to dreamland."

This book immediately became my and my four-year-old friend's, Talmadge, favorite bedtime story. He says the mother in the story looks like his mommy, so he believes her about the fairies. We snuggled up in his bed and read the story together, pointing out all the different fairies and naming a few. Talmadge asked at the end if fairies are real, and I told him to close his eyes and see if they meet him in dreamland.
