By being read to of course, Child of faerie, Child of earth is perfect to read aloud. I discovered this book in a class about writing children's books. The illustrations are gorgeous and the rhymes that accompany the pictures are sweet and lyrical. The old story is here, the meeting of mortal and faerie - this is literature for young children at its best. And it's a delight to read this to children ! Highly recommended. The poetry is intricate yet appears simple. This is a story that must be read aloud, simply to delight in the rhythm and the story.

...in both words and images. I started reading this book to my youngest daughter when she was little, and now, even at 12, she will gladly curl up with me and have me read it to her again. It is such a lovely book to read, with lilting poetry and gorgeous illustrations - easily some of the best I have ever come across in a children's book. We homeschool, and have hundreds of books - and I can say without hesitation this is one that is truly and dearly loved. My daughter and I will still recite one of the last lines of the book to each other is one of us is afraid or needs reassurance. I have purchased additional used hardback copies of this, just so that we can always have one on hand (we have had to move a lot), and because I can easily see my daughters wanting copies of their own when they have children (and sadly, the hardback is out of print.) Just an absolutely wonderful, magical, beautiful book.

My daughter loves faeries ~ this beautifully written and illustrated book was an instant hit with both of us. Though my daughter is not quite 4 years old, she is able to wrap her head around such concepts as friendship and respect - and what she is learning in this book is that it is important to learn about other people no matter how different before making a decision to like or dislike them. This book subtly teaches an openness of heart that is refreshing. I have also yet to see a single person dislike this book! It falls into the category of such classics as 'The Giving Tree' by Shel Silverstein and 'The Velveteen Rabbit'
Do yourself a favor and read this book - read it for yourself and read it with and for your kids....it's worth every penny.

I give it 5 stars simply by comparison to others. This is a beautiful book with references to the old beliefs worked in seemlessly. There is the occasional awkward bit in illustration or text but the topic and skill employed make it well worth small imperfections. This is a real faerie book.

I bought this book for my 4 year old son on a recommendation from a friend and it was an immediate favorite, with him asking me to read it over and over again in the same day. What's wonderful about that, is that I enjoyed the repetition as much as he did!

Child of Faerie, Child of Earth is not to be confused with 'New Age' anything. It is a lovely story of a 'child of faerie,' a boy, and a 'child of earth,' a young girl. The story is magical as they discover each other's world and the differences between them. Then,they must make a difficult decision that affects their deep friendship. The illustrations are lovely, and add to the wonder of this story.
I love this book! My granddaughter loves this book! Anyone who enjoys a good and gentle well-told story with beautiful illustrations will love this book!

I used to read this book in the school library each Halloween. Takes place on All Hallow's Eve but has nothing to do with ghosts, pumpkins, etc so its a little different. Fairy boy meets farm girl and they become lifelong friends. Beautiful rhymes. Last illustration is so sweet and would always get a reaction from the kids.

One of my all time favorite children's books.
Most beautiful, sweetest story ever written. It's magic
