PlayDrMom’s Favorite Fairy Books & Movies

PlayDrMom reviews books and movies about fairies

Since we’re all about fairies this week, I figured I’d share some our favorite fairy books & movies …


  • Fairy Tales, by e.e. cummings (a collection of four whimsical stories)
  • Mary Englelbreit’s Fairy Tales (beautifully illustrated classic tales)
  • Alice the Fairy, by David Shannon (a fun story about a fairy-in-training)
  • The Very Fairy Princess, by Julie Andrews & Emma Walton Hamilton (so many wonderful lines in this book about every girls inner fairy princess … “You just have to let your SPARKLE out!”)
  • Talented Tink and Terrific Terence, by Andrea Posner-Sanchez (2 books in one that overview parts from the movie, TinkerBell and the Lost Treasure)
  • A Perfect Match, by Kitty Richards (gives an overview of the movie, TinkerBell: Secret of the Wings)
  • Good Night, Fairies, by Kathleen Hague (a sweet bedtime story for a little one curious about fairies; amazing illustrations)
  • The Fairies’ Ring: A Book of Fairy Stories and Poems, collected and adapted by Jane Yolen (a lovely collection of fairy literature, great for older children)


    • Fairy Tale: A True Story (1997) loosely based on a early 20th century controversy over a photograph hoax the movie delves into the world of wonder and our desire to believe.
    • TinkerBell (2008) the first in the series of the “updated” version of the familiar character from Peter Pan.
    • TinkerBell and the Lost Treasure (2009) TinkerBell is given the task of making a one-of-a-kind scepter for the autumn festival and things don’t go as planned … but with a little help from her friends, Tink gets to fix things even better than she could imagine.
    • TinkerBell and the Great Fairy Rescue (2010) This one is probably my daughter’s favorite.  Tink is allured by a little house made by a young girl … and a magical friendship is born.
    • Secret of the Wings (2012) TinkerBell can’t resist exploring the winter world and finds much more than ice and cold weather
