Kylie is the first one she visits and she teaches her how to get more out of her time! Kylie soon learns that she should do all of her homework first and choose the clothes she will wear for game time and put the rest away at that time. Her Mom sees that she is doing an excellent job and gives her more time to play.
This is for children ages 3 - 8 and the lesson is so valuable to learn at a young age. The drawings are colorful and well done and your little ones will enjoy this story, am sure.
Most highly recommended.
When the story begins, we meet Elfie, “a young fairy from the family of good-hearted fairies.” Elfie is very excited and happily looking forward to getting her “very important task’ from Suzanne, their leader because Elfie has turned eight years old and that is the time all young fairies get a most important responsibility. And how Elfie’s imagination is active: “Maybe Suzanne will let me be the fairy of beauty and maybe she will let me be the fairy of wisdom, Elfie thought to herself!”
As it turns out, Suzanne makes Elfie a pink ribbon with a “clock symbol in the middle of it.” Elfie soon learns that this means she will be the time fairy; she will be responsible for teaching kids “how to get more time.” Suzanne soon comes to realize that all kids need to structure their time (as adults do, too) and for her first assignment Suzanne sends Elfie to help Kylie, a young girl who needs to structure her time in a better way. Kylie needs to better balance responsibilities with play so she can have more time than ever before to play. And indeed when Elfie gets to Kylie’s home she spies Kylie and a friend playing but Elfie also sees that Kylie’s mom wants Kylie to spend some time doing responsibilities like homework and chores like cleaning her room. Indeed, Elfie hears and sees Kylie say ““Whenever I have something fun to do, time just flies by. I wish I could get more time.”
And the story turns out to have quite a happy ending—Elfie “(teaches Kylie) how to get more time so (Kylie) can enjoy doing more (fun) things.” Elfie tells Kylie the importance of doing all of her homework right away after she gets home from school and Elfie even tells Kylie not to make a mess in her room or dawdle over making up her room including putting away her clothes that aren’t in the closet, either—that way Kylie’s mom will be pleased and let Kylie have more time to play! Elfie herself learns the lesson that she is quite the competent teacher because of her success with Kylie and the book ends with Elfie looking forward to helping other young kids learn the importance of doing their chores and homework responsibilities so they too can have more time to play. What a great way to end the story!
I highly recommend this fine book for toddlers and small children who will appreciate the important lesson that if you do your chores in a timely fashion you will be rewarded with more time to play with friends and enjoy other fun things. I particularly like how Efrat Haddi gives kids this message in a way that won’t make them uncomfortable—the story is all written in a very friendly manner. Great work as always, Efrat and Abira—please keep these excellent books for young kids coming!
Elfie the Time Fairy is good hearted. She just reached an age where she is allowed to help humans. She wants to help children, the most important role of the fairies. In this adventure she teaches a child how to manage what she needs to do so that more time is left for enjoyable activities.
This is an important lesson that children (and many adults) need to learn. By reading this book, they will learn it while enjoying the engaging tale that teaches it.
Elfie is a young fairy from the family of good-hearted fairies whose drive in life is to help children. When they reach the age of 8 years, each is given a task by leader Suzanne. On Elfie's 8th birthday Suzanne awards her the title of Time Fairy, and while Elfie is at first disappointed in the task, she soon learns the benefits: Elfie meets a girl named Kylie who would rather play with her friends than study - playing makes time pass so quickly that she neglects other aspects of her life. With Elfie's instructions, Kylie becomes organized with the chores and homework by prioritizing them and has more time to play!
As always with Efrat Haddi's stories the combination of fun and learning results in fine lessons learned for the children who read her books. And in that way they are a boon to parents, too! Grady Harp, March 14
