Then it is story time. One of the Crazy Wisdom fairies gathers all the little boy and girl fairies around her and reads marvelous tales of fairies--about the Sock Fairy (who steals one sock of each pair), the Belly Button Fairy, the Fairy who out-tricked trickster Coyote, and Goodnight Fairies. Although I have read my children stories about fairies before, there is nothing like hearing it directly from a real fairy.
As we leave, the Crazy Wisdom fairies give each young child a small gift and a sprinkle of magic fairy dust, sparkles cascading down over their faces and hands, which sends the children flying off to find the tiny fairy door hidden at the back of the store.
Crazy Wisdom hosts a special Mother's Day Tea with the Fairies on Sunday, May 9.
