Herb Fairies is a series of books (one released each month) which teaches about herbs through the adventures of four children in a land of fairies, trolls, elves, dwarves and magic. Each book features an herb with remedies, uses, etc. Included are mp3, pdf, epub and mobi (kindle) versions of the stories, learning journals, coloring pages, recipes and a corresponding issue of Herbal Roots e-zine. Herbal Roots is a children's e-magazine full of useful information, recipes and activities. You could use Herb Fairies and all the included extras as a curriculum to introduce children to herbs. I would suggest going through the stories with your children if you concerned about the magical/mythical elements of the stories. Heck, I'd encourage you to go through the stories with your children anyway because they are full of so much great information. If your family is interested in learning about herbs, check out Herb Fairies.
