Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that there's nothing to be concerned about here, other than perhaps yet another depiction of girls who look like Barbie.
Is It Any Good?
To adults, this book about Tinker Bell and her lost hammer is insipid pap -- a bland, dull story about a silly, contrived problem with an obvious solution. It's made worse by the typically Disneyfied depictions of Tinker Bell as Barbie with wings -- pouty lips, pencil-thin eyebrows, wasp waist, giant doe eyes, and a backless, strapless outfit that must be held up by fairy dust.
Kids will enjoy it, especially those with fairy obsessions, and it's only harmful with its gender stereotyping. It even has some good (if heavy-handed) messages about friendship and communication. It's not badly written as these things go. Let your kids have it -- just hope they don't want you to read it to them.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
