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!


2016 Holiday Guide for the Little OnesI have always believed that a book is the gift that keeps on giving! In our house, we have a fun tradition of handing out New Years’ presents at midnight. Now stick with me for a minute before you think I have completely lost my mind. For New Year’s, I usually find everyone in our family a book as a gift. I feel that the best way to start off the new year is by handing everyone a great book! Here are just a few of my favorite NEW books from Disney Publishing that would make any neurotic Disney child or adult happy to receive, no matter when!

Stay tuned for more themed Holiday Book gift giving guides this week – Star Wars, Marvel, Teens & more!
