Sixty enchanting watercolor illustrations are reproduced, along with a collection of poems featuring the Flower Fairies. All ages.

What a great way to teach plant identification. The pictures are beautiful, the poems are delightful.
I was a little disappointed when I received this book. It arrived sooner than I thought which was nice, but it had two stains on the cover that looked like a coffee cup had been left on it. With a little clear water and a soft cloth I was able to get most of it off. I was planning on giving it as a gift, but because of the stains I decided to keep it for myself. When I read it, a couple of pages were stuck together but came apart easily.
Great illustrations but some reproductions look blurry and some are crisp. Lack of consistency with the publisher. My daughter will enjoy it nonetheless.
I love the fairies!
Wonderfully Illustrated.
Exactly what I was looking for!
This book was a little more gently used than I expected, otherwise it would have gotten 5 stars in review.
The book contains reproductions of a collection of Cicely Mary Barker's watercolors of flower fairies. Each watercolor is a picture of a child or two represented as fairies of a particular flower. The flowers are beautifully rendered, and the fairy children are dressed in garments that resemble their own flowers. Each picture is accompanied by a poem.
Ms. Barker used the children who attended her sister's kindergarten as models with the result that the children are charmingly drawn but perhaps a trifle too realistically for depictions of fairies.
Still, it is a delightful book.
