Kids Explore: Magical Adventures with Fairies


BACKYARD FAIRIES. Copyright © 2018 by Phoebe Wahl. 


The theme for Summer Reading 2020 is Imagine Your Story. It’s a way to celebrate reading whatever fun stories spark your imagination. And it’s also a way to celebrate the creatures of folklore and myth, of fantasy and wonder. We’re bringing a little magical sparkle to your summer with this celebration of fairies. Some of them may be small, but each one has a lot of magic to bring into the world, by sharing their talents. (Does that sound like any young kiddos you know?) 

These books, crafts, and stem activities will help you and your family capture the magic of fairies and of the summer days!
