It was a cold and windy day and Jocelyn, the fairy, flew directly into a snowstorm. Jocelyn flew into the footprint of a little girl named Taylor which actually looked like a hole. Taylor saw something small and glistening, and when she bent down she realized it was a real fluttering fairy. Taylor brought her home and the fairy was grateful that Taylor saved her from the storm. She told Taylor that she was the fairy of hope and granted wishes to children who were sick and needed help. Taylor was happy to hear that because her Aunt Jeanne had cancer and was very sick. She told the fairy that her aunt was a child at heart and how she had made a garden in case the fairies needed a place to stay. Would Jocelyn be able to save Aunt Jeanne?
The Little Lost Fairy by Rebecca Sosny is a heartwarming story that will help children better understand cancer and dealing with illness, sorrow, and grief. It is a story about fairies, magic, hope, and wellness. I found the idea of building fairy houses enchanting and fascinating. The illustrations bring the characters and the concept alive, and they lend whimsy and beauty to this endearing story. It is a good storybook for parents and tutors to use for storytelling sessions at homes and in classrooms to help children believe in the power and magic of fairies, and to understand cancer. I have already made plans to build some glittery and beautiful fairy houses in my back yard. What about you, children?
