Book Review: Fairy Eyeglasses (Fairy Senses #1) by Emily Martha Sorensen

About the Book:

Fairy Eyeglasses (Fairy Senses #1)

When Cassie finds a magic pair of glasses that allow her to see fairies, she has to figure out where they came from . . . and what the fairies want her to do with them.

A 12,000 word children’s fantasy story.

My Thoughts:

I got this short story for free and it proved to be a fairly quick and fun read. Written in simple language, easily understandable by children, the author brings us a story of Eyeglasses that allow the protagonist to see Fairies when she wears them. The author also introduces us to Cassie’s parents and show us that when the child turns to her parents with her dilemma, they come forward with understanding instead of turning her away. There are also some lessons as a part of the story in this that children can learn from, including the primary colors of art and light, their differences and the encouragement for children to ask questions and learn.

Even though this is a short story for children, I enjoyed it immensely and thought it was quite fun. The fairies are well described and children will love them. Moreover, the simplicity of the plot and the point of the Eyeglasses prove to be captivating.

My thoughts:

A sweet story about Kate and her fairy friends who come up with a plan to save the Rainbow Fairy while managing to turn the goblins good. The story ends on a happy note with everyone having had a great day. It is a story with the message that if you help others and do good, good things will happen to you. As usual the illustrations are wonderful and imaginative. It is a story that children will definitely enjoy listening to and they will love the illustrations.
