The Winter Forest Lights new storybook
In our new story The Winter Forest Lights, you get to meet light-catcher Luminessa, who lives in the forest, but struggles to catch light during the dark winter months. She spots a twinkling light nestled in the trees one day, so seeks out the wise owl Beacon. Beacon helps her learn that these magical lights are created from children’s wishes. With help from her fairy friends Glowbud and Gleam, they weave magical fairy string and hang lanterns throughout the forest, leading the way to The Wishlight Village… You can hear our new book on your lodge TV’s every evening between 6pm – 8.30pm, it’s the perfect bedtime story.
