Community Outreach



As pioneers in the movement to get Kids back outside connecting with Nature, Light-Beams Publishing works with and applauds many organizations and groups that contribute to this important goal. Getting children excited and curious about the natural world is what it’s all about.

By promoting the building of Fairy Houses to colleagues, friends and family you are also contributing in this important movement. Primary groups include Parenting, Libraries, Education and Environment, under whose umbrellas we see nature lovers, gardeners, teachers, horticulturalists, etc..

We love fairy houses and have built them all over the world! It’s the most marvelous, versatile and portable entertainment for kids of all ages. We’ve made them with grandparents and cousins from 21 years to just a few months old and had several fairy birthday parties too! Thank you for helping to make our daughters childhoods so magical!

After watching your video my kids have been inspired to turn our back woods into a fairy haven. It has filled many many hours of fun on otherwise boring summer days. Thanks for your creative and inspiring books. We love them all!

— Amy Beck

Thank you! My daughter loves the books and the Musical was Fabulous! Also, loved the Fairy Houses Tour. Building their own Fairy House was a definite highlight too!

— Maura Sorensen

Ideas abound as every leaf, stick and pinecone have infinite architectural possibilities. The tour was inspirational. And the build-your-own ending was tons of fun, especially for the children who love to get down in the dirt (sand, shells, water) and find “treasures” (sticks, nuts, leaves, etc.)

— Anna Harris

Thank you Barry and Tracy. You have been a blessing to us. We really enjoyed the experience of fairy houses at the beach.

— Tony Gillespie

The books are wonderful and the Fairy House Tour is awesome. Being able to build a house with my daughter and put it on display is a memory I will always cherish.

— Joseph Shanley

Thanks for making life magical for our whole family.

— Brian Peshek

My daughter loves her new book. She shared the book and her story with her teacher and class. She even told her principal. Her teacher took the class to the smartboard room and brought your website up for her classmates to see her with her fairyhouse. It is amazing how a simple book can raise a young child’s self-esteem and make her feel so incredibly special. You and Tracy Kane did that for her. Thank you so much.

— Mrs. Yodakis

— Nadine Huard

I just wanted to share how much my daughter and I loved “Fairy Houses.” I’m thrilled there are more books in the series and can’t wait to read on!

— Regina

It’s not often that a book sparks something in a child that drives them outside to be in nature, but “Fairy Houses” does. This is an extremely unique book with fabulous text and art work. It is our all-time favorite, most inspirational children’s book!

I have been going every year with my two girls. We have not missed a year yet. My oldest is now 15 years old n still is very excited for this every year. It is a way to reach the inner child no matter how old. We look forward to another year. (Portsmouth Fairy Houses Tour)
