Fairy Tales and Pixie Trails, the first book in the series, Tell Me More Grandmamma--Tell Me More, is written to engage children of all ages. Though we can't travel time tunnels, personally, we can join the protagonist in a vicarious experience through words and pictures. The series is geared to take us to destinations real and imagined throughout the world. We will learn about neat activities, bits of history, and a enjoy a wholly believable fantasy world. This modern day fairy tale is written in first person to make the journey that much more real. The author is a lifetime certified teacher and infuses holistic teaching methodology into the books she writes. For example, you may see words that are on an adult level. But these words are an important part of the auditory delivery and are understood by children through the contextual clues.
