I had the honour of presenting my book to the Sunnyside school children in Calgary, Alberta. Children are my absolute most important critics. These children created magical pieces of art that they shared with me after my visit and said that I could share them with you. I hope that you enjoy their creations as much as I do. Sending sunshine and faery magic to one and all. Shine on!

Testimonials from teachers & staff
“Susanne Alexander-Heaton is an author I would highly recommend to have speak to your school or group. She came to our school to talk to our elementary classes. Prior to coming to the school she sent her books so that the students could read the book and see what she would be talking about. She even came dressed as the sunshine faerie character from her book which established an instant connection with the students. Her book incorporates a positive environmental message suited to children in everyday life.
She encouraged the students to write by relating how she was inspired to write her book. She adapted her talk to different grade levels and their understanding of the world around us. The books’ simple alphabetical theme of the faeries appeals to the younger students while captivating the older students by exploring the possibility of faeries in our everyday world. She is a delightful person and author any school or group would enjoy.” -Denise Francisco School Librarian St. Alphonsus Elementary/Junior High Fine Arts School
