We all have special gifts, sometimes it just takes a little longer to find what yours is. The Fairy Who Sings takes you on a journey with Briony Rose as she discovers she is not able to fly like the other fairies. Although, not everyone is kind about her being different. . . she soon discovers her special gift in her beautiful voice. As others compliment her, she slowly comes out of hiding and understands that she is respected for her differences and others look up to her for that as well.
Here are some questions to get your minds thinking, after you read this book as a family: (as always, adjust questions as needed for the age range in your household)
1. What color hair would you want to have if you were one of the fairies?
2. What makes you unique?
3. How would you have been nice to Briony?
4. What song do you think she is singing?
5. Which illustration is your favorite and why?
6. Which woodland animal would you want to pet?
7. When did you feel proud of something?
8. What is your favorite color in the book?
This is a nice story about realizing you may not be good at everything, but everyone is good at something. It is also an opportunity to understand there are always chances to be kind. Find out how your child would have shown kindness to Briony or do they see themselves as the main character in the story? It is always interesting to see where they picture themselves within the book. After reading this as a family a fun activity would be coming up with what song she may have sung for the king. Or if no one is comfortable singing, maybe come up with ways you would have shown kindness when Briony found out she could not fly.
