Our second "Colour Fairies" experience
My girls and I just finish listening and reading along (we purchased a hardcopy of the book separately to enjoy the map and pictures) with "The Spring Ball." It was another delightful experience. We were glad to have read the prior book (#10) in this series as some of the characters return and are not explained. The storyline is again sweet and educational (explaining new concepts like a phoenix or the equinox. Throughout the book and then again in a list at the end of the book, the listener is asked questions or prompted to write their own continuation story to become eligible for a prize! This made the book extra exciting for my 8 and 9 year olds. We are also very fond of the reader's voice- or should I say MANY voices. She is talented in her ability to give each speaking character a unique voice; for example, she made the young adult fawn sound like a goat and this fawn's father had the same quivering voice except with a deeper pitch. It is amazing how many voices she jumps between including her narrating voice.
An Adorable Series
My toddlers and I love "The Colour Fairies Series." N. MacCameron's magical voice is perfect for this whimsical story. I loved that Maggie Jeffrey included "things for kids to do" inside this book. She gives great ideas on how children can further interact with the story; such as drawing pictures, writing their own stories and ideas, etc. Toddlers like to get involved with what they read (and listen to), so I thought this was a special touch to an already fabulous tale.
