We were recently invited to review The Fairy Wish book by Luis Weston and we were very happy to accept. The Fairy Wish is the second book written by Luis Weston, who is a parent blogger at single daddy daycare. The first book is called The Rainbow Gnome, which has five star reviews on Amazon.
The Fairy Wish is beautifully illustrated and is about a girl called Connie, who wishes she could become a fairy. The book charmingly rhymes and kept my girls attention as the story unfolded.
It has a lovely upbeat and inspiring message, which helps children believe that dreams really can come true!
We loved how the book is interactive and there is a quest to follow. On each page there is a letter hidden, once you have discovered all the letters a password is revealed, which allows you access to the next stage of the quest which involves rock painting.
You are then encouraged to join The Fairy Wish rock painting group. Everything is clearly explained in the book.
My daughters loved painting the rocks and they are now hidden somewhere in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire! We are hoping someone will find them and report back to the Facebook group. Who knows how far they will travel. The hard part was encouraging my girls to part with the rocks, as they seem to have inherited their mothers hoarding tendencies.
I would recommend this book to young children, my twins are seven and enjoyed it. I love how the book encourages children to get out and about. The Facebook page also has competitions to enter, all of which involve painting and hiding rocks! A great way to keep everyone entertained over summer.
For more ideas on how to keep the kids occupied this summer read this fab post from Yeah Lifestyle
The book is available from Amazon
