“Sara Fay and the Elementals children’s books are the only ones of which I am aware that teach listening to your inner voice.”
– Aaron Cance, author and owner of The Printed Garden
On The Printed Garden website, Aaron shares his background stating:
“In 1996, I was offered my first bookstore job at Crossroad Books (look for them online – they’re great people!), a shop in Eau Claire, WI, that carried secondhand and rare books. After moving on to the sole proprietorship of Rupert’s Room, a small, online business that brokered the sale of rare and secondhand books, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature from the University of Wisconsin, working a five year stint at Barnes & Noble in Sugarhouse (after moving to Salt Lake City, of course), a one year period of working at Ken Sanders Rare Books, earning a Master of Arts degree in British and American Literature from the University of Utah and, most recently, eight years of work at The King’s English Bookshop (where I learned more than I could ever possibly have imagined!), I have arrived at this great new place . . . and look forward to serving you!”
We are honored to receive this level of praise.
May Sara Fay and the Elementals teach you the unrivaled power that comes from finding and listening to your inner voice!
I was tickled pink to learn my sister and nephew got lost on a mountain adventure with their Sara Fay and the Elementals Quest Journal. My sister initiated the quest by asking my five-year-old nephew if he wanted to draw any of the plants he saw. After completing his first drawing, he saw opportunities everywhere.
He drew plants, flowers, and trees and then excitedly proposed they write their own story. At times, he would narrate, at others, my sister would narrate. In their story, they went camping, roasted marshmallows, ate hot dogs, hiked through trails and then…
They saw a real-life moose on the trail! What a perfect addition to their story and chance to practice illustrating.
On this day with poignant memories and challenges for so many, the Elementals and I wish for us all to give and receive love and kindness – to unite with each other, all of the Earth’s inhabitants; and with nature’s devas, elementals and nature spirits.
My book is now available on Kindle to read and also for Print to buy.
“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
“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.”

“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?”.
