The kids (6&4) and I love this book. From it's introduction to the world of gnomes and the seven wonderful gnome stories to the story-telling and craft making, this is a truly excellent book. We've had so much fun and imagination inside the pages and perhaps even more outside. Now every hike involves looking for gnomes and wondering what kind of gnome might live here and there. My kids beg me to take them out on hikes when the fog still lingers and their little imaginations cannot be contained.
Thank you to the author for sharing the wonderful world of gnomes with us!
I read these to my four and five year old children. We read a lot about Fairies and it's nice to have gnomes now that my son is relating to. As much as he loves fairies he has been very excited that all the gnomes are boys. The stories are just as sweet as can be. The stories are so refreshing and gentle yet I notice the children are on the edge of their seats! I love the kind and genlel manner of the gnomes and the respect for nature. I hope that she writes more!
