A Spriteful Start to Spring With Fairy and Gnome Stories

Fairy and Gnome Stories

Hard to believe the snowy weekend we had involved the first day of Spring! If it was cold in your part of the world, I bet you are as ready to greet Spring as I am. Today while shopping for crafts, for our egg hunt I was definitely in the Spring mood after seeing all the cute mushroom, fairy, and gnome decorations at Michael’s!

I can’t think of a cuter way to celebrate the beginning of the season.

If you want to get into the spirit of sprites, here are some adorable books about gnomes and fairies:
1. No, No Gnome: I spotted this new book at our local bookstore and instantly loved it. Kids will love the simple wording and the phrasing is perfect for beginner readers.
2. How to Find Flower Fairies: Feed your child’s imagination with this whimsical pop up book all about fairies and their homes. Then take your kids on a fairy hunt.
3. Gnomes: You will have to track this book down as it is out of print in the U.S. (it’s available on Amazon from used book sellers) but it’s totally worth it. A “field guide” to gnomes, the Dutch children’s book, is filled with charming illustrations and is sure to become your kiddo’s favorite.
4. The Care and Feeding of Sprites: For older kids who haven’t quite let go of the magic of imagination (yay them!) this is the perfect book. They will dive into the world of Sprites and not want to leave it. This book is from the people behind The Spiderwick Chronicles so you know it’s fantastic!
