**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!

  • Page Count: 40 * Price: $8.99

Another book in the Disney Junior Classic Tale line, Sofia the First: A Royal Mouse in the House is a beautiful addition for your shelves. This hard backed book features a detailed front cover and lovely illustrations.

From the back of the book:

It’s the day of the Pet Talent Show, and all the students from Royal Prep are all there. But something goes wrong with Hildegard and her pet mink, Lulu. Will Sofia and Clover come to the rescue? They’ll have to hurry-the show is about to begin!

The NDK Review: I like this story because this story uses the same magic mirror as when Sofia’s family turns into bakers. This time, Hildegard turns into a little mouse. The pictures are beautiful, they aren’t from the show. I like the front cover of this book. There are a lot of details in the book. I love the spot where I can write my name. That makes me feel like I have a special book!

  • 5 minute disney junior stories5-Minute Disney Junior Stories
  • Page Count: 192 * Price: $12.99

You can’t go wrong with a book that features 12 stories from three different Disney Junior characters. These stories really do only take approximately five minutes to read, so they are perfect for story time at any time!

From the back of the book:

Time to Dream

Take a magical ride on a flying horse with Sofia the First. Visit Minnie’s Bow-tique and pamper a few pets at her Pet Salon. Cuddle up with Doc McStuffins and her toys at a super-fun slumber party! This treasury of tales stars your Disney Junior favorites Sofia, Doc, and Minnie. Each story is the perfect length for reading aloud in about five minutes-perfect for story time, bedtime, or any time at all!

The NDK Review: I love these collections of books. There aren’t as many stories in this book, but the stories have more pictures. This book has all girl characters – Doc McStuffins, Minnie Mouse and Sofia the First. They are my favorite Disney Junior characters. I can’t pick my favorite because they are all my favorites!

  • neverbeast disney fairiesLegend of the NeverBeast Read-Along Storybook & CD
  • Page Count: 32 * Price: $6.99

I am in love with the Disney Fairies movies. We own them all. We were so excited to receive this read-along book with CD. Listening to the story with the actual voices from the movie added to the fun and adventure of this story time! This definitely has us eagerly awaiting the release of the movie!

From the back of the book:

A mysterious creature!

Deep in the forest, Fawn finds a strange animal. Is he as dangerous as the scout fairies seem to think, or is he simply misunderstood? Follow along with this book-and-CD set, featuring thrilling sound effects, word-for-word narration, and original movie voices.

The NDK Review: The NeverBeast has sparkly eyes. I want to see the movie a lot now. I think this might be the scariest, most adventurous Pixie Hollow story ever! Nyx is a new fairy. Tink and Fawn worked together to help save the NeverBeast. I want to listen to this story again!
