#56 Bluebell

Bluebell was written to encourage children to be strong. One spring day, Lady Spring asked a little fairy named Celeste to help her wake up the woodland flower seeds and bulbs. Celeste was honored. One little seed named Bluebell didn’t want to wake up so Celeste coaxed it by describing the beauty and wonder of the woods.
