New in 2012, Mara Van Fleet creates a magical world of colors and sparkles for toddlers to enjoy.
The fun begins with the front cover, which features three childlike fairies and a pull-out handle that makes the wings flap. Each page then spotlights one color (eleven colors in all). Rhyming text makes for a read-aloud that slips off the tongue. Little ones will also appreciate the interactive nature of the book - fabrics to feel, arrows to pull, etc.
The "plot" of the story revolves around the fairies dressing a princess for a rainbow ball. All of the characters are refreshingly not grown-up. There are no tiny waists or low-cut dresses - only cheerful faces.
