Dog Ear Publishing releases “Green, the Environmental Fairy” by Carla Filgas.

The author’s gentle lessons about recycling, reusing and conservation pair perfectly with illustrator Colleen Merickel’s tender drawings.

HEALDSBURG, Calif. (PRWEB) December 05, 2012

A young fairy wants a job – work she will enjoy just like other fairies she knows: Cinderella’s fairy godmother, Pinocchio’s Blue Fairy and Peter Pan’s Tinkerbell. As this charming new children’s book reveals, however, even the Fairy Job Fair proves a disappointment, with everyone else taking the positions she wants. Luckily, the Boss of All Fairies has just the job for her – helping the world become a better place for everyone. Even her name will reflect the importance of her role: Green.

“Green, the Environmental Fairy” shadows Green as she grows into her job, charged with the task of saving the world. She gains the gift of writing words of conscience on magic fairy sticky notes that, when applied to children’s foreheads, cause them to wake up to a new way of thinking. Green is a natural for the job because she’s recycled and reused items for years, including making herself a tutu out of the top of a butter container and shoes from discarded toothpaste caps. Right from the start, she begins to work her magic.

Families can enjoy reading this imaginative story aloud. The author’s gentle lessons about recycling, reusing and conservation pair perfectly with illustrator Colleen Merickel’s tender drawings. A helpful list of environmental tips for families – from turning off the faucet while brushing their teeth, to getting friends together to clean a creek – provides concrete ways to join Green in her conservation efforts.
