The Legend of the Fairy Stones
Kelly Anne White
This beautifully illustrated and poetic children’s book combines a fairy-tale legend with fascinating facts about fairy stones.
This unique picture book shares the fantastical legend of how real-life fairy stones were formed. Woodland lore has it that the cross-shaped stones came from the solidified tears of forest fairies the day they heard that Jesus died. It’s been said that fairy stones repel witches, ghosts, goblins, ghouls, and other types of ghastly fools.
The Legend of the Fairy Stones takes readers on a whimsical journey through a land of joyful fairies who combat all kinds of evil with the spirit of the fairy stones. The poetic text is paired with collage-style illustrations made from public domain art and photography.
Also known as Staurolite, fairy stones form naturally all over the world. The Legend of the Fairy Stones includes educational back matter about these geological curiosities geared toward STEAM and Common Core Standards.
