A read-along eBook (enhanced with audio),has a powerful message; it is a heartfelt example of a father honoring the memory of his daughter. Beautiful and creative Noam wrote this story as play to perform for her family on her 5th birthday. Her tale of a flower fairy that possesses very special powers able to help the meanest of people and change them into good and happy human beings is the perfect way to illustrate to children the power of a positive attitude. Written in Noam's words, it speaks to a young audience and is easy to understand and relate to the story. The children can follow along while voice professionals act out the the story with Noam's words. Part of the proceeds from the book will go to The Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.


I read this book to A instead of K only because I know K would have not enjoyed the book as it is too girly. A actually sat and enjoyed the book and loved to push the audio button to listen to the story being read to her. We both liked how the Flower Fairy was able to make the Ogre happy and returning the Queen to her castle. 
When I asked A if she liked the book she replied with "pretty good and that she liked the shoes that had wings."
Overall a decent read, good pictures and I think girls would really enjoy reading about a fairy who can stop an Ogre just by being kind and giving flowers. 

So the few issues I had with the book, the author should make the play button for the audio bigger as A and I had trouble with pushing it as it would flip the page sometimes. 
2. I am not sure if it was my kindle or just the ebook but every time we would push play to listen to the story it would close out of the book makes it very difficult to enjoy when it kept closing.
3. Now I read the book to myself without the audio everything seem to work. When I played the audio towards the end it would read the missing sentences that I did not see when reading it out loud to myself. So I think that the author made need to look into this.

  2. The ebook was originally created for iBooks where it is perfect. The words are highlighted as they are spoken. The only way the audio could be put on Kindle was using their Text Book Creator. I will check into the problems. If you want your child to have a great experience with the book is to purchase it on iBooks and either read it on your iPad or use Readium, a chrome extension, that also highlights the words as they are spoken and turns the pages. Either one is a treat. The hard cover is also available on Amazon. I produced both versions of the eBook. Thanks for reviewing the book.
