Do you love the movie Aladdin? This Disney classic is filled with the best characters and the most wondrous musical score. I am a huge fan of anything Aladdin from the movie to the soundtrack to the books related to the movie to the stage shows. I simply adored the Disneyland stage show when it was still showing in the park. Oh the pageantry and splendor, that amazing show will surely be missed. One of my dreams is to see Aladdin on Broadway. One day…. But for now I can enjoy the show though an amazing new book The Road to Broadway and Beyond: Disney’s Aladdin: A Whole New World!

Are you a fan of the story of Sleeping Beauty? This classic has been around for ages. This was a favorite of my grandmothers as a child, my mother and myself, this story was always a magical bedtime story for each of us as children. I loved this story so much that I wanted to name my daughter Aurora, but I did not win out on that option, unfortunately.
SleepingBeauty by Cynthia Rylant (Author), Erin McGuire (Illustrator) For age range: 5 - 8 years retails for $16.99. Coming out on June 6, 2017.
The classic story we all know and love is headed back to the book shelves in a slightly reimagined version. This wonderfully illustrated book takes you into the world of Sleeping Beauty. My niece could not get enough of this book and had me read it to her again and again. She especially loved that Sleeping Beauty had darker hair like hers not every Sleeping Beauty needs to be blond, and I like that this is not. This was a lovely book, that I am sure little ones would love to have this read to them, and early readers would love to read themselves.
