The Best Disney Books for Your Children
You’re likely thankful DVDs and VHS is a thing of the past (thanks, streaming) because if they were still around, you’d have to replace those bad boys every week, considering your kids watch Disney movies on repeat. While the characters and the animations are inarguably creative and enjoyable to watch (minus hearing Let It Go for the ten-thousandth time), learning about foreign lands, villains, brave princesses and heros are often better experienced through the joys of reading. In addition to having super-fun theme parks, cruises, camps and shows galore, Disney also features a wide selection of books, for every age of bookworm.
Here, the latest releases to add to your kiddo’s ever-growing bookshelf, giving them tickets to many, many new worlds of wonder and discovery:
No matter how old your gal will grow, you want her to know she can do anything she sets her mind to. This smart, timely book features lines like ‘Feminist Baby likes pink and blue, sometimes she’ll throw up on you!’ reminding kiddos that their gender doesn’t impact who they should – or shouldn’t – be. Actress and activist Rose McGowan is a fan of the book, saying, “Feminist Baby is for girls, boys, moms and dads. If you want your little person to grow up to be a full and equal person, Feminist Baby is for you.” What generation could you inspire by simply opening up the floodgates to opportunity?
As your babe begins to spew out his first sentences and eventually takes that first step into the kindergarten classroom, you’ll be amazed to watch how much his brain can contain. Give him a hunger for language with this sweet book about a dinosaur who ‘declares he’s the King of All Cookies.’ It’s a lesson in accepting you might not always get what you want, but it works out just fine, anyway.
Not only does this book share the latest happenings with some of your beloved princesses – like Belle, Rapunzel and more – but it gives the power of story to your child, too. In this book and workbook duo, your little imagineer’s creativity is challenged, where they are presented the open-ended chance to finish a story. Who will save the day? Where will the princess go? What will happen next? The ending – or maybe the beginning? – is up to your child’s incredible imagination.
If your race car driver in the making loves to read but doesn’t like to take those pages out loud, you can help him practice speech with this new read. Alongside Lightning McQueen, Doc Hudson and the international Neon Races, this storybook has 12 racing stories that are meant to be read aloud, lasting five minutes each. Practice one before bedtime on the daily.
For your courageous pre-teen who is always up for the next adventure, whether it’s getting lost in pages of a gripping novel or going head first down a waterslide, the latest in Robert Beatty’s best-selling series will have her burning the flashlight battery. It takes place in the heart of Asheville, North Carolina at the Biltmore Estate, all set upon the Blue Ridge Mountains, where she must protect her home from mysterious forces.
