This is a book about a fairy that loves to garden. One day she found an unknown seed in the woods and she went back to her garden to plant it to see it grow and figure out what it is. The seed caused a lot of bad feelings between her and the other fairies in her village and they wanted her to cut it down. Being a plant lover she could not cut it down and it turns out in the end everyone ended up loving the suprise plant and what came out of it.

Personal Reaction:
This is a perfect fantasy book. There are friendships built and maintained. There are suprises. And what little girl doesn't love fairies. I have always loved TinkerBell growing up and these books are an extension of her life and her fellow fairies. It is a great read for little girls.

Classroom Extension:
1. I would use this book to help little girls get interested in reading.
2. I would use this book to help teach my students about the importance of friendships, growing and keeping them.

After reading other fairy books, this one is a delight. There is such originality in the way these Disney fairy books are written. Sure, you still have some typical characters like other fairy books, but many of the characters in these aren't so typical. They have more depth. Like the "mean" fairy Vidia, who really isn't that mean all the time. And Disney fairies aren't that clumsy. They do get into trouble, but that is the fun of these books. For example, in this one Lily, a garden fairy, finds a seed that she does not recognize. The plant grows to look ugly, smell ugly, and everything about it seems bad. But Lily still cares for the plant and knows that it is happy. This story is an example of how you can find true beauty in everything. ( )
