“Sara Fay and the Elementals is my first choice in sharing with my fourth grade students! Book 3 is the perfect book to introduce the animal kingdoms, food chains and food webs when we study environments. Sara Fay is a lovely character who has an infectious excitement for learning about her surroundings. The Elementals are unique characters that help her along the way. My students and I love to research animals in Utah’s three different environments. The Quest for this book aligns with Utah’s Common Core Standard 5 where we explore the interactions between animal and plants and ways to protect Utah’s endangered plants and animals.
The author, Sara Watchorn, also has a wonderful Journal for children to express their thoughts about their surroundings as well as a fun “Gratitude Bank” to keep notes of thankfulness and gratefulness. Quests, Gripes and Gratitude Journal has wonderful writing prompts for our young students exploring our great big world.”

“Great message to share ESPECIALLY with children. It is my belief that many SOLUTIONS begin through educating our children. Until the health and education system recognize this, classic diseases will continue to grow and cost our population physically, emotionally and financially.”
– Dr. Jonathan Colter D.C.
“Sara Fay introduces us to a new family. Not just the family of man but the family of our whole world and the possibility of our wholeness. She gives children of ANY age a chance to heal through living resonance with our environment creating a safe place to learn about ourselves in empowering relationships. A place of solace and peace. These are books filled with promises of learning and hope and the idea that just being aware of the plant and animal kingdoms that surround us we feel more a part of rather than apart from. Thanks to Sara Fay for her beautiful writings and poetry from the heart. In these books she answers the age-old question asked by Wendell Berry “What Are People For?”.
