Rainbow Magic Fairies series
The Rainbow Magic Fairies series is a popular collection of children's books written by Daisy Meadows. The series follows the adventures of two human girls, Rachel and Kirsty, who become friends with seven magical fairies who are each responsible for keeping a different color of the rainbow shining brightly.
In each book, Rachel and Kirsty discover that the rainbow has lost its color and that one of the fairies has been captured by Jack Frost and his goblins. The girls then embark on a mission to rescue the fairy and return her to Fairyland, so she can restore the color to her part of the rainbow.
Throughout the series, readers are introduced to a variety of colorful and unique fairies, including Ruby the Red Fairy, Amber the Orange Fairy, Saffron the Yellow Fairy, and many more.

readers. The stories are engaging and full of action, and the characters are relatable and fun. The books also include colorful illustrations that bring the world of the fairies to life.

Rabbit & Bear series
The Rabbit & Bear series is a collection of children's books created by author Julian Gough and illustrator Jim Field. The series features two main characters: Rabbit, a nervous and anxious rabbit who tends to worry about everything, and Bear, a friendly and easy-going bear who loves to have fun.
Throughout the series, Rabbit and Bear have a number of adventures together, each with its own unique challenge. For example, in the first book, Rabbit & Bear: Rabbit's Bad Habits, Bear wakes up early from hibernation. If she can't sleep, then at least she can make a snowman. Rabbit has never made a snowman, but he definitely wants to make one that's better than Bear's. But with an avalanche and a hungry wolf heading his way, Rabbit soon realizes that it might be nice to have a friend on your side. In Rabbit & Bear: The Pest in the Nest, Rabbit, and Bear are faced with a pesky woodpecker who's disrupting their peaceful home. The third book in the series, Rabbit & Bear: Attack of the Snack, is a hilarious tale of a mysterious creature that is stealing all of Rabbit and Bear’s food- the pair must set out and catch the thief!
What makes the Rabbit & Bear series stand out is its ability to teach important lessons while still being entertaining and engaging. Each book has a clear message, such as the importance of self-control or the value of being open to new experiences, and the stories are crafted in a way that helps children understand these concepts without feeling like they're being lectured.
