**Disclaimer – I received these books for review purposes from the Disney Book Group. All opinions are my own.

Story time is always a favorite in this Neurotic Disney home. NDK (Neurotic Disney Kid) is old enough to read, but not too old to still be read to! Books are wonderful on so many levels. We keep them everywhere – even in the car! Disney Books are a great way to keep Disney at home. Disney Book Group was kind enough to send these books for NDK approval – be sure to look for the NDK Review after the description of each book!

7-25-14 book review

Hi everyone! NDK & I are so excited to share the next line of books from Disney Book Group to be released this TUESDAY, ¬†July 29, 2014. This week features a few interactive books & once again, they are incredible. But don’t take my word for it! Hear what NDK has to say, too!

  • Sleeping Beauty book reviewSleeping Beauty: Read Along Storybook & CD
  • Ages: 3-5 years ¬†Price: $6.99

A timeless classic never grows old. From the back of the book-

An enchanting storybook-and-CD set featuring music, sound effects, and real character voices! Relieve the classic animated tale of Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty! Follow along as Aurora grows up with the good fairies, meets the prince of her dreams, and overcomes Maleficent’s evil curse. Real character voices and lively sound effects add to the magic in this enchanting storybook-and-CD set.

When I was NDK’s age, I loved my Disney book & record collection(yes, records!). I had all the classic stories, including the coveted Haunted Mansion one. I would sit for hours just listening to the sound effects & the voices. Now, my NDK can too! ¬†The pictures are beautiful & straight from the movie. Be sure to add this classic to your collection!

The NDK Review: This is my favorite movie and this book is just like the movie. The sound effects sounded the same as the real characters from the movie. The pictures were pretty. It was very colorful. The part with Aurora being awoken by her true love is my favorite part.

  • Royal Treasury: Read-and-Play Storybook
  • 96 pages * Ages: 6-8 years * Price: $12.99¬†

Royal Treasury Read & PlayFour new stories featuring four of everyone’s favorite princesses! From the back of the book-

Rescue a scared dolphin with Ariel; go on an adventure with Rapunzel & Maximus; befriend a baby dragon with Aurora; and spend an evening with Tiana and Stella the dog in this 4-in-1 storybook. With so many enchanting stories to enjoy, you’ll be feeling like a princess in no time!

Four new princess stories for your princess fan to love! The colorful, padded cover features beautiful pictures of the starring princesses : Tiana, Rapunzel, Ariel & Aurora. The respective princes are also featured in the stories as well. Another great feature about this book is that it comes with a code to redeem the Disney Royal Princess Salon App ($2.99 in the App Store).

The NDK Review: I like this book because there are four princess stories to read! The animals are cute in the stories. I like that the princesses are friends with the animals.

 

 

  • minnies costumeMinnie’s Costume Contest
  • 12 pages * Ages 3-5 years * Price: $7.99

This colorful die-cut board book is definitely one for your little NDK’s Halloween this year. This sturdy book is appropriate for younger ages & perfectly adorned with glitter & foil, making it very eye-catching. The simple 1-2 sentences per page make it just the right length for little one’s attention spans, but easy enough for young readers to even enjoy. Many characters from Minnie’s Bow-Tique make an appearance in this story which makes this a¬†great addition for any Disney Junior fan!

It’s Halloween! And that means it’s time for Minnie’s annual Halloween costume contest! Who will win the special prize for the best costume?

The NDK Review:¬†The front cover is sparkly. I really liked that. You can see the cut out pictures from the front cover & that is really neat. I really like Cuckoo-Loca’s birdhouse the best. The story is neat. Minnie Mouse’s nieces really want to win the contest. Millie & Melody are funny!
