Read full description of the books The Complete Flower Fairies Collection:This is a new edition of a previously published book. My daughter has the earlier version and I purchased the newer version for my niece, as they both adore it. Both are hardback, with good quality paper and includes the original books: Flower Fairies of the Spring, Flower Fairies of the Summer, Flower Fairies of the Autumn, Flower Fairies of the Winter, Flower Fairies of the Garden, Flower Fairies of the Trees, Flower Fairies of the Wayside and A Flower Fairy Alphabet.
None of my children have ever liked the paper covers on hardback and always remove them, so I was pleased to see that this has a nice cover underneath (some hardbacks just have plain cloth covers, but this looks good with or without the slip cover). There is a useful index, an introduction about Cicely Mary Barker – which is fairly short but long enough that most children will probably read it - and (of course) the poems and the pictures are just gorgeous. My daughter and niece not only love the poems and illustrations – but they enjoy copying the drawings.
I think this collection is just wonderful and one of the books my daughter pores over the most. Not only does it work as a collection of poems, but it also helps teaches children about flowers and plants and enriches nature for them. I think it is a must for every child’s bookshelf – beautiful and just as enchanting as when the first book appeared in 1923.
Read information about the authorCicely Mary Barker was the illustrator who created the famous Flower Fairies; those ethereal smiling children with butterfly wings. As a child she was influenced by the works of the illustrator Kate Greenaway, whom she assiduously copied in her formative years. Her principal influence, however, was the artwork of the Pre-Raphaelites.
