Fairy Magic

Publisher: Scholastic

Isabelle has made a very exciting discovery – a fairy called Summer-Blue, who brings all the summer flowers to life in the woodland with her touch.

She just can't wait to tell her family, but her brothers and sisters don't believe in fairies. They are used to so much noise around them all the time that they don’t know how to "feel" the fairy’s voice. But Isabelle feels it. And through the magic fairy, she also learns all about the insects who use different senses to explore the world.

With charming illustrations from Laura Ellen Anderson, this book celebrates fairies, sibling bonds, nature and the changing seasons. It also offers an inventive way of considering deafness. As Isabelle tries to help the people around her to take the time to see things from her perspective, we see different methods of communication, such as a hearing aid (in this case, worn on a headband), signing and lipreading.
