Everyone needs a bit of storytime. If today's been stressful, let author and presenter Cerrie Burnell read you and your child this gentle, magical story about fairies, family and the changing seasons.
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.
Fairy Magic by Cerrie Burnell, illustrated by Laura Ellen Anderson, is a beautiful book full of wonder and gentle adventure.

However, it's because she is used to stillness that Isabelle is the only one out of her brothers and sisters to feel the fairies speaking in the woods...
Watch the video below and let Cerrie Burnell share this very special story with you.
