If there is one Disney Fairy that my daughter loves outside of Tinker Bell, it is easily Periwinkle. We have either weekly or monthly viewings of “Secret of the Wings”. “Disney Fairies: Meet Periwinkle” is the latest Passport to Reading Level 1 book and it is coming at a perfect time as my daughter is learning to read.

Official Premise: Meet Periwinkle! Periwinkle is a frost fairy from the Winter Woods. When Tinker Bell and Peri meet, the two fairies discover a very special bond, but they are kept apart for the safety of their wings. However, when snow appears all over Pixie Hollow, Periwinkle and the frost fairies must help save the day!

The story is cute. It is a sort of abridged version of “Secret of the Wings”. The illustrations are colorful and vibrant. If you love Disney Fairies, I mean what little girl doesn’t, then this is a great buy for you. Plus at a price of less than $4 dollars on Amazon, I mean can you really go wrong here?

Book Review “Disney Fairies: Winter Wonderland Reusable Sticker Book”

My daughter loves two things…Disney Fairies and stickers. This book should be a win-win! But I have to admit, I was really disappointed with it. She loves the sticker and character portion of it but as a consumer, the book is sold as a “Reusable Sticker Book” and there is nothing reusable about this stickers. Once these suckers are pasted down, they are down for good. Personally if something is called reusable, I would expect it to be reusable. Big let down!

There are still pages and pages of stickers included and my daughter didn’t seem to care much. There are some pages where you have a blank background and you can fill in characters and accessories. Another page includes you matching outlines with stickers. Other pages allow you to change outfits to each character but like I said once you put them down once they are stuck, so if my daughter was a little older and wanted to change something she wouldn’t be too happy here.

Tinker Bell has always been a favorite character from “Peter Pan” but she has recently developed into one of Disney’s biggest character within the Disney Fairies series. Having a two year old, I have become a big fan myself of the Disney Fairies, especially the movies. “Disney Fairies: Bedtime Fairy Stories: A Treasury” is a great collection of nine bedtime stories for my little tinker Bella (my daughters name). A must have for sure!

Official Premise: The fairies of Pixie Hollow are always busy flittering about. They have mysteries to solve, animals to care for, and a responsibility to help one another. But the fairies also know how to have fun together! They go on great fairy campouts, search for the perfect pumpkin, and paint beautiful pictures. This bedtime treasury includes nine soothing stories sure to put every fairy to sleep.

The illustrations are very colorful and vibrant. I have read some bedtime stories that are a bit too exciting to really be considered bedtime stories since it rallies the kids up. This collection really has some enjoyable stories but my daughter loves to point out each of the characters’ names and what is going on in the stories. So I have really enjoyed reading this to her at night. I hope that LB Kids have future volumes planned.
