**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! NDK & I just finished two wonderful books that are coming to bookshelves near you this TUESDAY, September 16, 2014! Be sure to look for these in stores near you.
In a new Level 1 book from World of Reading, “Star Wars: Escape From Darth Vader” takes young readers on a journey to a “long time ago in a galaxy far, far away”. Fun illustrations and easy, repetitive words make this book a galactic hit for new readers.
The NDK Review: I liked this book. Before the story starts, it says “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…” – just like in the movie! This book is about the beginning of Episode VI where R2-D2 and C-3PO escape.The pictures are different from other pictures I have seen. I like the pictures. The words are easy in this book. It’s really good for kids that are just learning to read. There are also no scary parts in this book, so everyone can read it.
- Winter Never Land
- Page Count: 12 * Price: $7.99
- Ages: 3-5 years
This die-cut board book features everyone’s favorite pirate crew, Jake and the Never Land Pirates! The Never Land crew are celebrating their winter holiday, Winter Treasure Day, and learn a very valuable lesson along the way! I love how the book is shaped as a Forever-Green Tree. This is a perfect addition for your holiday story collection!
From the back of the book:
It’s Winter Treasure Day in Never Land! But when Captain Hook steals the Forever-Green Tree and all the presents, how will Jake and the crew make the holiday celebration special? Yo-Ho-Ho-Ho!
The NDK Review: The cover is sparkly. I like the sparkles. Jake and the Never Land Pirates celebrate Winter Treasure Day. It’s like Christmas. Captain Hook stole their presents and the Forever-Green Tree. But then Marina, their mermaid friend, told them what the real treasure is. You’ll have to read the book to find out what the real treasure is!
Stay tuned! NDK & I will be back next week with more Disney story time fun! Let us know if you have read any of these stories- what did you think? Know of a great Disney story that NDK & I should read & review? Please share it with us in the comments below. We love story time!
