We're pretty convinced that fairies are all around us. Here are two of our favorites, drawn by Marrieta Gal, the illustrator of The Climbing Tree.
In Caroline and the Not-Mamma, a small girl is alternately terrified and furious when her grandmother--seen by Caroline as the "Not-Mamma"--babysits her for the day. The story is told through the child's eyes. Here, she has a swift response when the Not-Mamma brings her lunch. Illustrator Elena Kochetova added the cat to nearly every scene to amplify the mood and offer a fun detail for the littles to search for on every page. The book is due out in early 2020 and will be available for pre-order in December 2019.
My granddaughters and I are just a little obsessed with the Arts for Kids Hub on YouTube. The videos are fun to watch and easy to follow. Try drawing a dolphin with the young artist in your life! (You can subscribe directly to the channel by clicking on the link above.)
