**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!

Beneath each flap is a new word that connects characters to the featured letter. With over 100 flaps, this beautiful board book is sure to delight any young reader and Sofia the First fan!

The NDK Review: This book is perfect for little kids to learn their ABCs. They can trace the letters with their fingers, which will help them learn to write. I think it is a fun book and little kids will like seeing Sofia, their favorite princess. There are flaps, too. The flaps will help them learn to spell and read other words that start with the same letter. Flap books are always fun.

  • World of Reading, Level 1

With the release of ANT-MAN not too far away, this book is great for any beginning reader Marvel fan! These books are a great way for younger fans to identify with the characters and read at the same time! Without the “scary parts” that some children may fear, they can still learn to love the Marvel characters just like everyone else! World of Reading is a great, trusted line of beginning reader books.

From the back of the book:

In this book you will meet Ant-Man.

The World of Reading line of early readers is designed to offer emerging readers books that they will want to read featuring characters that will excite them. With this series, readers will become expert explorers in the world of reading at a pace that is right for them!

The NDK Review: I like the story of Ant-Man. He wasn’t always a good guy, but he changed his ways and became a super hero. I think it’s neat how he became friends with ants. This book is great for anyone just learning to read. The sentences are simple, and there are easy words in it.
