**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!

Happy Friday! Can you believe there is only a week left until Christmas? There is still time for Santa to add a few great Disney books under the tree. This TUESDAY, December 23, 2014, be sure to look for these Disney Junior additions – it’s Henry Hugglemonster for the win!
