($8.00) ISBN: 978-0-8059-7839-1, paperback
Written by a first grade class, The Book Fairy takes you on a whimsical journey with a loveable fairy who encourages children to read and expand their imaginative capacities.
In this tale, the book fairy rewards children around the world who have done good deeds with a book under their pillows. When a delivery goes terribly awry during a terrible snowstorm, the book fairy is left with only her spirit after crashing and losing her precious books. Join her on her path of recovery as she overcomes her obstacles and continues to bring joy to children who love to read. Perhaps other children will be inspired to write their own stories and keep the joy of reading alive.
