* A segment of ''Disney/{{Fantasia 2000}}'' has a Mother Nature type spirit who causes plant life to spring forth following a devastating volcanic eruption.



* This is the Job of fairies in the Disney ''Tinkerbell'' series.



* Both ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'' and ''Disney/{{Fantasia 2000}}'' contain examples of this, the former having little fairies that apply dew to flowers, and the latter with a Mother Nature type spirit who causes plant life to spring forth following a devastating volcanic eruption.



*** Some of them, like the Wintersmith or [[TheGrimReaper Death]], aren't necessarily obligated to do every last little detail personally; as anthropomorphic personifications they just have to exist, and do the trade equivalent of checking to make sure the factory production is up to snuff. They ''can'', if they have a particular aim in mind (see again the Wintersmith), but by and large the books compare it to a monarchy; the king exists and makes the rules, but he doesn't personally show up at your home telling you what kind of tea to have on your break.

* In ''[[LittleHouseOnThePrairie Little House in the Big Woods]]'' Laura's father tells her that Jack Frost comes to put frost on the windows. This results in Laura attempting to 'catch' Jack Frost in the act.
* In ''TheMagiciansNephew'', Aslan sings Narnia into being.
* Helen Keller wrote -- or thought she wrote -- a perfect fairy tale about melted jewels staining autumn leaves with brilliant colors. It turned out to be a paraphrase from a book that had been read to her. The book's author went on record that Helen's version was better.
* Daniel Curley, ''Ann's Spring''. Mother Nature has her hands full one year with tornadoes and hurricanes, so she asks her daughter Ann to start spring for her. Ann begins the complex task, assisted by her baby brother. The pair handle various snags and beginners' glitches, but things seem to be going okay -- until some neighborhood pranksters lock them in an old truck. Then it starts snowing...
