Very happy with the picture quality, smaller size of book.

It's also a great way to introduce young children [especially those who love nature and fairies] to verse.

My 4 year old loves to hear me read the poems and she enjoys looking at the pictures.

Cicely Mary Barker and all of her books are a delightful addition to our library! The poems are beautiful, inviting and educational. The art is magical. It brings you into the piece. I find myself lingering on each page to study each fairy and flower in great detail. My 4 year old loves to hear me read the poems and she enjoys looking at the pictures. She has the coloring book.

My preschooler loves fairies, and we have been collecting the pop-up books based on Cicely Mary Barker's illustrations. The "Flower Fairies" series of books by Cicely Mary Barker are simply enchanting - the poems are sweet, the illustrations are detailed and gorgeous, and as one reads the poems [I usually read the poems aloud to my daughter as she peruses the pictures], I can honestly say I feel transported to another realm filled with magic, nature and wonder! It's also a great way to introduce young children [especially those who love nature and fairies] to verse. I highly recommend all the books in the series.

I have three others - the Alphabet one, Summer and Winter so I now just need Fall to complete my set. They are the only books my granddaughter lets me read to her. It's great.

This was a childhood book which I just love. The fairies have captured the essence of each individual flower/plant. Cicely Mary Barker does fairies like none other

More About the Author

Cicely Mary Barker was born in 1895 in Croydon, South London, and spent most of her life there. Because of ill-health she was educated at home and largely taught herself to draw and paint, encouraged by a supportive family and assisted by membership of the Croydon Art Society. She was only sixteen when she had her first work accepted for publication as a set of postcards, and from that time she devoted her career to painting. It was her Flower Fairies books that brought Cicely Mary Barker her greatest popular acclaim. Like the Pre-Raphaelite painters whom she so much admired, she believed in recreating the beauty of nature in art and in drawing from life. Her plants and flowers were observed with complete botanical accuracy and in the fairies themselves she captured perfectly the unselfconscious grace of children, whom she used to sketch in her sister's school.
