Friday Faves: Fairy Science by Ashley Spires

Hello everyone! I’m excited today to bring you a new book by Ashley Spires, author of the Most Magnificent Thing. We love her previous book for its girl power, ingenuity and STEM, and this book keeps that theme alive but with a twist.

In Fairy Science, Esther is a fairy that does not believe in magic, ironic because magic is what fairies are all about. Instead, she believes in science and prefers facts and evidence over wishing on stars and casting spells with magic wands. She gets to use her knowledge of science when the fairies notice a tree is dying and they need to get to the root of the problem.

This book is wonderful for many reasons. The main character is a girl, going against the social norm, who loves science! A fairy after my own heart….I am a nurse by trade after all, and I love sparkles 🙂 There’s glitter and science sprinkled throughout the book with a dash of humor to bring it all together. I love Ashley Spires’ books and this one is my new favorite. It’s a delightful read with a great message of being yourself.

I do hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Happy reading!
