"A Donsy of Gnomes, 7 gentle gnome stories" has stories about 8 charming gnomes who teach gnome-sized lessons in generosity, selflessness, courage, resourcefulness and friendship. Here are practical ideas for you to create your own Gnome World with your children through plays, puppetry, costumes, nature tables, and more.
Gnomes bridge the worlds of nature and magic. They are elusive, reclusive, creative, patient, very small, and tend to avoid humans, particularly adults. Gnomes are all, in one way or the other, in service to the world.
