This unique stand-alone picture book shares the fictional 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. The Legend of the Fairy Stones takes readers on an upbeat journey through a land filled with joyful fairies of all varieties before twisting and turning into a world of evils and ill wills combated by a sense of fearlessness found in the spirit of the fairy stones. It’s been deemed that fairy stones repel witches, ghosts, goblins, ghouls, and all other types of ghastly fools. With its rhythmic text and classic fairy-tale style, The Legend of the Fairy Stones cleverly integrates fantastical folklore in a collage-style montage of amazing artwork from the public domain. These very real stone crosses, officially called Staurolite, form naturally through a geothermal process known as “cruciform penetration twinning.” Alongside its elements of fantasy and whimsy, The Legend of the Fairy Stones remains grounded in educational content with back matter that focuses sharply on STEAM and Common Core Standards.
The Bible Adventure Book of Scavenger Hunts is jam-packed with loads of fun activities created around scripture verses all quoted from the New International Version (NIV). The book features not only scavenger hunts, but also craft projects, easy recipes, science experiments, and other elements, with each chapter highlighting a specific Bible theme. The scavenger hunts in this book are terrific for summer camps, youth groups, campground coordinators, homeschooling programs, family gatherings, and even birthday parties.
