The end of the school year is here, and Very Fairy Princess Gerry is getting ready to graduate! She always loves a celebration, but can't help but feel a little sad as she empties her cubby, takes down her art projects, and says goodbye to her class pet, Houdini the hamster. She's also a little nervous about leaving Miss Pym... what if her new teacher doesn't let Gerry wear her wings and crown? Change can be hard, even for a fairy princess! Thankfully, she realizes that new things can bring their own sparkle.
From the mother-daughter team of Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Hamilton comes another delightful story in the #1 New York Times best-selling Very Fairy Princess series.

Really love the whole series. This one helps let kids know that change can be fun, not scary.
I have two granddaughters just 10 days apart in age and both just "graduated" from pre-school to kindergarten. I thought this book would be just the ticket for that special occasion! They loved it. And its not just for a one time read...they like to have it read to them over and over and loved the pictures. I especially bought the signed editions as a keepsake for them, and plan to add to their library with more of the same.
