book review: Flower Fairies of the Wayside by Cicely Mary Barker

This tiny, little book is a very sweet thing. I picked this up for my daughter at a used bookstore simply because it was filled with fairies. I had not looked at it in the two years since i picked it up but last next I just sat down and flipped through it.

This little book is filled with simple poetry and wonderful little paintings. Originally published way back in the 1920s, they stand up to the test of time. Any fan of fairy art will love this book.

The poems are simple, a great introduction to poetry to the younger reader, but a perfect book for those of us who write short form poetry.

It is nice to see something that is truly ageless.
