Each of the 13 Herb Fairies books is a story of its own, and they’re all connected to tell a much bigger story...

It’s a time when the plant magic was fading from the world. Four young friends discover an herb fairy at the park, and they are drawn into a healing adventure beyond their wildest dreams.

The Old Man of the Forest has cast a terrible spell, locking up much of the plant magic and draining the magic from the world.

The Herb Fairies turn to the children for help, and they all discover that only by working together and healing the magic keepers can the magic be fully restored. These stories teach in multiple ways, and by the end of the series your child will be a keeper of plant medicine magic. Herb Fairies is written by Wildcraft! board game creator, Kimberly Gallagher.

Herb Fairies is more than just books... it’s an herbal “learning system” that empowers your children.

Learning about the healing herbs is an amazing doorway to the natural world around us. With Herb Fairies, kids empower themselves with wisdom to take care of their own health naturally as they grow up.

Parents get involved by reading the books with their children and helping with the fun and simple herbal preparations, slipping easily into role of herbal mentor…even if you have no herbal experience.

Herb Fairies creates healthier kids and stronger families.

"Herb Fairies has been such a joy! The stories are written in such an approachable way, that even my youngest has been able to remember and identify herbs. The kids love the riddles of each tale & that triggers a fantastic ability to recall what each herb treats. As a parent, the best part is that the main children of the stories are so kind & cooperative- they have been great models in treating ourselves and others with compassion."

"Herb Fairies hit the nail on the head. These books are empowering to my children (as well as to me) and can be empowering to you. I would recommend these books with pleasure."
J. De Laurentiis
New York
"The Herb Fairy Books are so well written and the art work is exceptional. I highly recommend this program to everyone regardless of their children's ages. The price of the program is very reasonable especially when you compare all the benefits you and your family will receive."
D. Majewski
North Carolina
"Herb Fairies is a wonderful and lasting way for children to learn. The benefits of each herb is encapsulated by magical fairies who teach courage, honesty and the importance of helping others."
K. Relf
United Kingdom
"The Herb Fairy series weaves together a beautiful picture of plant medicine, magic, love, compassion, communication, respect, joy, trust, awareness, inspiration, simplicity and much more....I really appreciate the gender and age balance in the stories as well and believe that the books will grow with my son. I think storytelling is a critical way to pass down the art of herbalism."
J. Jackowski
Oregon
"Herb Fairies has opened up the world of plants for my four year old in a way that my most earnest instruction somehow did not. I feel she is connected to the plant world now in a deeper part of her being."

“The Herb Fairies is very heartfelt. It brings a lot of joy. It's totally awesome. The drawings are wonderful. The energy is wonderful. And it is a beautiful season of stories. Thank you for making them.”
J. Bevington’s daughter
Ohio
“The stories are really well written. There is a pattern that keeps my daughter engaged knowing the flow to expect in the stories but it doesn't get boring or old ever. She could listen to the audio of the books over and over again. She is able to find all of the herbs out in the wilderness here where we live. The only thing that we wish is that it wouldn't end!”
J. Bevington
Ohio
“These colorful, exciting books almost come to life. They are amazing one-of-a-kind tales of herbal enchantment that draw you into the stories while teaching herbs and their uses.”
J. Mosorjak
Michigan
“My kids and I didn't know anything about herbs when we started Herb Fairies. We have been completely changing over to a healthier lifestyle...We could all understand about herbs because all different learning styles were used.”.
K. Knapp
Iowa
“This series is for everyone—I was afraid it would be too young for my 11 year old, but it wasn't. It was also not too young for Mom! It is chock-full of fantastic, easy to understand information.”
A. Martin
Maryland
“I have been using herbs for over 40 years and have had many books on herbs. The way Herb Fairies is presented is logical, easy to use AND easy to understand. And the recipes are fun!”
T. Allen
Washington
“I got this for my grand kids, but I learned more than I could imagine. Now when they come over, we have that special "herb" time with Grams. ...You are never too old to learn.”
S. Decker
Texas
“As a homeschooling family with all age ranges, we couldn't have had a better, more fun program for learning the herbs we love!”
L. Tousignant
Wisconsin
“I love that the plants described in Herb Fairies grow wild, or as easily available culinary herbs here in Australia. The plant keeper's journal and Herbal Roots Zine make plant identification easy, too. If Herb Fairies had been available when I was a child I'd have retained my childhood love of plants and studied herbalism many decades before I did. What a wonderful, fun series!”
C. Hooper
Australia
“My son loved the characters, he talks as if he knows them! It has helped all of my children with their plant identification skills. They love harvesting herbs to make goodies. The fact that they gathered herbs and made things with the herbs is so impressive to their relatives. They have requests from family members to make them herbal products. Thanks a bunch, Herb Fairies!!!”
T. Robbins
Pennsylvania
“There's just something about watching my children wander through an open field "listening" for the plants. Oh, who am I kidding? I do it, too! Thank you, Herb Fairies, for opening our ears and eyes to the amazing world of plants!”
C. Connors
Washington
“Our girls walk around spewing information about herbs growing around our house. They make poultices and decoctions and are so excited about learning more about the herbs that grow in our everyday life and how we can use them. It's so rewarding to see them so excited about what others call 'weeds'!”
L. Grim
North Carolina
“My daughter is 6, and she absolutely loves the Herb Fairies series... Whenever someone gets hurt or is feeling sick, she goes straight to the Herb Fairies to find the best remedy. She has learned so much from this series, and it has greatly deepened her understanding and appreciation of nature's goodness.”
E. Wolfe
Kansas
“Herb Fairies is a phenomenal way to teach children about plants how they heal and nourish us. It is also very important in creating a consciousness in us and our children that we must take care of Mother Earth. It pays the idea forward for children to become stewards of our planet.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions

Though MANY more plants and fairies are mentioned in the books, the 13 books mainly feature…

Chickweed, violet, lemon balm, plantain, chamomile, calendula, marshmallow, burdock, elder, pine, rose, cinnamon and finally, dandelion.

These are not only fun and kid friendly herbs to learn about, but are also the most used herbs for children’s herbal remedies. In other words, you and your kids will be learning the most important children’s remedy herbs throughout the adventure.

You will not only know all about the plants, you’ll know how to use them for remedies if your child needs simple care for those everyday first aid situations. So, they are learning about the plants and YOU are learning how to use those very same plants to help them.

These books are targeted to children between the ages of 5 and 12, but like most good stories, they can be enjoyed at any age. In a survey we gave to Herb Fairies owners, 60% were purchased for kids 5 to 12, 20% bought it read to kids under 5, and 20% were adults buying it for themselves.

Herb Fairies includes audio books. And, of course, you can read to your kids. So, even younger is fine. Many parents have told us they used the books and audio books together to help their kids learn to read.

Because of the extra features, it works for a wide variety of ages. My four year old liked the pictures and coloring pages, my 9/10 year old LOVED the books, and my 11/12 year old could still dig into meatier information in the herbal roots zine…when some of the other components of the program seems beneath his grown-up-ness. :-)

– C. Pitton, Virginia

Boys LOVE Herb Fairies. Here are a few testimonials from book club members…

I have a 5 year old girl and a 13 year old boy, and the Herb Fairies materials are broad enough to capture both of their imaginations. My daughter is enraptured by the stories, and identifies with all of the characters. My son enjoys learning about how the herbs can be used in culinary and medicinal preparations. These books have been a means through which both of my kids have been able to connect more deeply and meaningfully with nature. These materials are highly, highly recommended.

– C. Williford, Wyoming

My boys loved the Herb Fairy stories. It was such a beautiful way to use their imagination to learn about the herbs, it really brought them alive and created a lasting connection.

– T. DeVito, Maine

Don’t let the name fool you. Herb Fairies are not just for girls and young boys. My tween son loves the books, the audios, but mostly the herbs. He is deeply interested in the healing properties and medicinal uses of herbs, an interest that has grown out of a year of Herb Fairies books…

P. Marooney, BC, Canada

Some families dig in and complete the entire learning system and go back to it year after year. Other families simply read the books. Most families, however, will read the books and work on what inspires them. A recipe here, some journal pages and activities there… maybe listen to the audiobooks as well.

There are no “boxes to check.” Herb Fairies is designed for you to have fun learning with the young people in your life. No matter how much of the program you use, you are sure to get a lot out of the experience.

No worries. You can access Herb Fairies and use the materials anytime you want. You have continued access to the site.

Kids can enjoy reading the books any time of year. We give you access to the entire series when you join for ultimate flexibility. A short video when you log into the website shows you how to use Herb Fairies, whether you start in spring or winter.

We actually designed Herb Fairies for parents JUST like you. The idea is to learn and experience the magic of herbs with your kids. It’s actually more fun to learn this way. We include a private Facebook support group for parents, as well as The Herb Fairies Parent Guide.

Over the years, we’ve heard from lots of adults who purchased Herb Fairies for themselves. They find it to be the simple solution they’ve been looking for. Others have purchased it to use with their grandkids, nieces, nephews, outdoor programs, classrooms, or even their friend’s kids.

The Herb Fairies box set is very heavy, thus postage is very expensive to ship outside the U.S. We are actually charging you about $10 less than it costs us to ship the books to you.
