Fairy Tale or True Life? Scented Adventures of The Bouquet Sisters in Fairyland is an interesting combination of both! Your Children will be delighted to share the mystical adventure of the Bouquet Sisters, as they fly around the World on their very own magic flying carpet. They are instructed by a beautiful team of Fairies called The Pretty Fiery Lights, who take them to learn from the Good Doctor (Gary Young) at his farm in Utah. The children learn about the Essential Oils and are sent on 7 Missions to anoint the Children of the World and pray for the Miracles needed to heal our World. This book will teach children the importance of prayer in changing things for good and to take care of their own health. The exquisite artwork of Josephine Wall and the Aroma Scent Release feature will engage their senses in beauty and the sweet scent of Sacred Oils.
I was really excited to review this book because it was a fairytale and it also included scents throughout the story so you can actually smell the essential oils that are mentioned in the book. I thought that was a very creative and unique idea. The artwork in this book is absolutely beautiful.
There is healing and religion thrown into this book which I am fine with but it almost seems that the book focuses more on preaching the author's beliefs and marketing the essential oils that are for sale in the back of the book than on the story itself. I felt like the author was trying to push her beliefs on to the readers and some of them are a bit much for me. Everyone has their own beliefs and I completely understand and accept that. I just don't agree with them all. For example, I am a Christian and I listen to hard rock but I don't think that means that I am going to call upon something evil rather than God in my life. I just really think all of this took away from the story. With that being said, I think it is great that this book teaches kids to help the earth and the people on it. It also teaches some great lessons such as being kinds to others, praying, eating well and taking care of your body.
I don't know. It's kind of a toss up for me. I think that the book would have been a lot more interesting if it focused more on the fairytale side of things. I think that it would be a bit much for children but maybe some adults would find it more intriguing. Have any of you read this book? What are your thoughts?
