A cute little story about a Birthday Wish Fairy, who is stumped when a kid asks to be a girl named Daniela, not a boy named David. Tulip learns to do little things to help: Clear Sight Sprinkles, so Daniela's family can see her as she is. Teaching Paste on everyone's toothbrushes, so they can help teachers and doctors understand Daniela. Bravery Broth. Confidence Cream to stand up to bullies. And extra sparkles for luck.

This is a great story for—I would say 5-8 year olds to better understand wha
