Inspiring! by Vanessa (on 8/27/14)
"Thank you for the inspiration! I look forward to building some fairy houses this fall with my boys while on hikes. I loved the book and it has inspired so much imagination. Now every where we go my 3 year old son looks for rocks with holes in them to attract fairies!"
