I'm a sucker for buying my daughter books, I believe that no child could ever have too many. On most trips to town we usually come home one book heavier, on this one occasion we picked up this Sunny Day Fairy book.
Sunny Day Fairy is a board book suitable for girls, at around 18cm x 18cm it is an average sized book. I originally picked up this book from Poundland as the illustration on the front is truly enchanting and couldn't wait to see what was inside.
The book is made up of five double page spreads. Each spread is made up of one scene of Sunny Day Fairy in different circumstances, from being out in the sunshine to picking flowers and putting them in a vase. Each illustration is just as enchanting as the one on the front cover and use of bright sunny colours in reference to Sunny Day Fairy is fantastic.
The actual story is quite basic, with only one or two sentences on each double page spread and only 5 double page spreads, it is quite short. With the fairy being called Sunny Day the story is about different things that she likes to do in association to sunshine, for example, there is one page with Sunny Day looking at the rain out of the window and the text reads 'Sunny Day Fairy does not like it when it rains. She stays inside until the sun comes out again'. That's one of the pages with a longer sentence or two, so you can kind of get the idea about how short this book really is.
We've had this book for a while now, 6-8 months roughly, and my daughter has only wanted to read it on a handful of occasions. The story has no kind of purpose to it and the pages don't run on from the previous pages. It's almost like a fact book for Sunny Day Fairy. I think this is the reason my daughter didn't really enjoy it and it's not read often.
Although this was only a pound, I don't think I would recommend it as it's quite a boring read, and only 5 pages of text. The illustrations are beautiful, that's the only thing I would say is good about the book.
