This weekend we were thrown a beautiful beach soiree by the authors of the new children’s book, Fairy Birds.  Rylee got to invite a few of her friends to the private book reading, which was complete with snacks, crafts, gifts, tutu’s and fairy wings. Pretty much a little girls dream party.  It was such a special day.

Fairy Birds is the first book in a series of stories that teaches kids important characteristics like giving, kindness, and love.  In each book of the Fairy Bird series, the little Fairy Birds learn how to grow one of the six colorful feathers they need to become Fairy Godmothers.   This first story is all about learning to grow their pink “Givie” feather, which they grow as they give to others.  The message is beautiful and the illustrations are captivating.  You can purchase Fairy Birds here.

Thanks to Heidi & Heather for putting together such a great party for our little ‘birds’!  Those wings have not come off of Rylee’s back since :)
