Remember those timeless summer days playing outside? Making up games with your friends? Listening to your mom or dad read your favorite stories?
We learn the most when our minds, bodies and senses are all engaged, and…
Time playing outside is essential for physical, emotional, and social health.
How much learning and integration are kids today missing with their constant movement between structured activities and hours in front of television and computer screens?
At LearningHerbs, we have developed a children’s herbal learning system that engages kids through stories, and encourages them to learn even more by providing exciting hands-on activities.
Welcome to the magical world of Herb Fairies!
Herb Fairies is a chapter book series and herbal learning system, by Wildcraft! board game creator Kimberly Gallagher.
Each of the 13 Herb Fairies books has a story of it’s own, but they’re all connected to tell the much bigger story of a time when the plant magic was fading from the world.
When four young friends discover an herb fairy at the park, 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.
What parents & grandparents are saying…
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.
