**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 Halloween! This week, Disney Book Group will be releasing a new set of Disney Junior themed early readers that any young Disney fan will enjoy! Check them out on TUESDAY, November 4, 2014!

The NDK Review: These books are great for someone younger than me that does not know how to read yet. The sentences and the words are very simple. The pictures are exactly from the show, so those are great to look at. There are stickers! Those are always fun. I did get to learn about princesses from the Princess Lesson on the back of each book. Those were fun! I also liked the certificate that said you knew how to read. I wish I had that when I was learning!

We previously published a review for Blame It on the Rain earlier this month. The book will be available on TUESDAY, November 4, 2014. Here is the review again in case you missed it!:

  • Doc McStuffins Blame It On The RainBlame It on the Rain
  • Page Count: 32 * Price: $3.99

This fun easy reader (Level 1)is based on an episode from the Disney Junior series, Doc McStuffins. Easy vocabulary and word repetition in short, simple sentences make this book a hit with young readers. From the back of the book:

Moo-Moo the cow was left out in the rain. Doc’s diagnosis is Squishy-itis! Will Doc McStuffins have a cure for this sad, soggy cow?

The NDK Review: The inside cover has all of the main characters in the book. I really like when they show all the characters and tell you about them. I have seen this show before, and I really liked the story. It’s really easy to read, so anyone just learning to read can read this all by themselves!
