My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community. They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start one.

Myself, I go ou
As far as fairy tales go with dragons, castles, princesses, and a huge climax then I would have to say that Disney's Sleeping Beauty is the closest story to reach the stereotypical fairy tale. So Disney once again decided to go back to the fairy tales, the happily ever after, and all the magic that Disney had with Snow White.

This story is like an epic medieval fantasy and a chaotic mess at the same time.

Let me show you what I'm talking about.

The story, everybody knows it. But what's odd is that
John Sperry
Sleeping Beauty is a tale f a princess who has a spell cast on her by a witch. True love eventually breaks the spell and she ends up living happily ever after with her princess. This classic tale is one that is often well known throughout various generations. The illustrations depicted are simplistic in nature and depict a simpler time devoid of computer animation. Lessons that could be taught to school age children from the story include compromise, being a good friend, and happiness for others ...more
I read this aloud to Natalie in a couple of sittings. While she is still too young to enjoy this story, it will make a nice bed time story or reliving of the movie when she is older. I liked how the illustrations captured some of the best visuals of the movie, especially the dragon, but overall the artwork was not as high quality as the movie. While not excellent children's literature, this is a satisfying telling of a classic fairy tale.

I loved this book. It is a longer book but the kids loved it with pictures. They also liked it because it was made into a movie.
My all-time favorite Disney story--not for the storyline or plot, but for the art, which for its time was tops. And the heroine is gorgeous, too (You will recognize Audrey Hepburn's eyes in Aurora's face)!

Jadi ingat di versi Disney ini sang putri dan seisi istana tidak tertidur selama 100 tahun, serta sudah pernah bertemu dan jatuh cinta dengan sang pangeran sebelum ketiduran.
I've had this one since I was little, and for some odd reason it's stuck around despite all my other childhood books disappearing. So now it's on the shelf with the rest of my baby's books.
It you think I'm a sucker for Seuss than I'm really a sucker for Walt Disney. I love Sleeping Beauty, the Disney version.

I was reading this to my son. First time I have ever read this. Good one. :-)
I suspect reading such stories as a girl helped made me a romantic :D
