Reading:

I write often about the importance of reading at school or at home. No matter the resources we can choose on formal learning and informal learning.

Augui’s stories are full of adventure, enchantment, and love. Sofia Caessa has written them in hopes of instilling virtues in children such as “love, friendship, peace, truth, loyalty, respect, and courage.” 

Each adventure will highlight one of these virtues. They are represented by each of the rare ingredients needed to free fairies. 


Don't underestimate the power of magic of reading in the classroom with your students appealing to all the captivating resources. 


If your students/children love adventures and fairy tales, they will love this app, for sure!


Read with your students/child
ren Show them the wonders of their imaginations!

Encourage their creativity, and never let them lose their sense of wonder.



" There is no substitute for books in the life of a child".

Mary Ellen Chase (1950)

Hoping you would like to read Augui the witch of the moon in the classroom or recommend it to parents for Christmas!
