Here are seven gentle stories to read to your children. In them you will meet eight charming gnomes, and their friends. Gnomes who teach ghome-sized lessons in generosity, selflessness, resourcefulness, courage and friendship.
In addition to the stories, there is a section about approaches to telling the stories including acting them out and puppet shows. And that's not all! There is a section of "Gnome Crafts" with instructions for making a gnome hat, gnome beard, gnome bag, and felted gnome figure. Lastly,at theback of the book you will find "Grandmama's Shortcake Recipe" and "Leon and Lucy's Bedtime Prayer".
