Can You Save the Faeries?


Here’s a little something I’m playing with.  Let me know what you think!

You’ve heard it said that when children say they don’t believe in fairies that their lights go out. But they don’t die. Oh no, they don’t die.

When a fairy’s light goes out, they become nasty dark fairies. They miss the light so much that they become very bitter.

So instead of flying around doing good things, they do mean things. They don’t want to help young children believe in themselves.

Instead they whisper dark things in their ears. They don’t tell them to be nice and share. They tell them to take things that aren’t theirs.

They no longer leave money in exchange for your tooth as a special celebration.  They prefer to take away your shiny things, just because they can.

They bully around the fairies of light and tell you to do the same to your friends.  They take their money and kick them around.  Do you know people like that?

They pull dogs ears and make them yelp so mom and dad think you hurt the family dog. Is there any end to the mean things they do?

But there is hope yes there is.  There is something YOU can do!

It’s true that every time a child says they don’t believe in fairies one of their lights goes out,

But if you believe again their lights return!

YOU can bring back the fairies of light one by one!  Share this phrase with everyone you meet:

I believe in fairies, yes I do.
I believe in fairies, do you?

Say it with me, shout it out to the world!

I believe in fairies, yes I do.
I believe in fairies, do you?

Give thanks and win!


I am thankful for The Tapestry by Henry Neff because it gave me a way to spend more time with my son.  He was reading the book, and mind you he almost never reads, and he told me how much he was enjoying it, so I started reading with him.  Soon we were hooked and we sit here on pins and needles this November waiting for book four to come out next month.

The reason for this post is twofold.  One, I really do love that book series.  Two, if you click on the link to the picture above, you can create a post like this one and win the contest!  19 signed YA novels just for reading and posting blog posts about being thankful for books.  Not too shabby if you ask me!
