Whether child or adult, we’ve all been charmed by the legends and magic of Fairies. These adorable beings live in enchanted forests and sprinkle fairy dust on those who need it. Disney has made fairies like Tinkerbell endearing and we can’t get enough of them. Did you know that Tinker Bell is born from the first laugh of a baby and is brought by the winds to Pixie Hollow (which is part of the island of Never Land)? She learns that her talent is to be one of the tinkers, the fairies who make and fix things. What a captivating story.
The world is devoted to these fluttery little creatures and many stories have been writing about them. Every single fairy in the world has their own story and here are three that children will love.
