If you’re looking for an enchanting picture book that teaches the virtue of giving, then take a gander at “Fairy Birds: Fairy Godmothers in Training.” In this first in a series, the Fairy Birds go on a soaring adventure to earn their first colorful feather, the pink “Givie” feather, which they grow as they give to others. It’s a simple tale that introduces children ages 3 to 8 to an important lifelong philosophy that everyone at CBT supports in attitude and action.
Twin sisters Heather Fujikawa and Heidi Andrews, freelance writers for magazines such as Seventeen, wrote Fairy Birds, and the book is beautifully illustrated by Simini Blocker. Fairy Birds was recently awarded Book of the Year 2013 from Creative Child.
We think the book is lovely and engaging, and we like that it also has a related blog that shares fresh giving ideas, and spotlights young readers that are living the message by giving to others. It is also pretty cool that parents can purchase accessories to support their little one’s introduction to altruism, like Fairy Bird Wings, the Penelope Headband, and Coco Clips.
Heather and Heidi add to the fun by posting lots of age appropriate craft ideas that you and your youngster can do together, like a Fabric Balloon—a balloon that is not going to pop—and Rock Art. We think they are perfect for a bedroom, craft room or, especially, to give to someone else!
