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.

Hi, Nostalgia. You're a really great friend, Nostalgia, and I always enjoy your company. What will you bring me today, Nostalgia? Ohhh, this Sleeping Beauty book I used to have as a child because I was so mesmerized by the pictures, even though ironically I actually never saw the movie as a child? Fantastic! And just holding that old, pink, hard-covered thing in my hand again after all this time almost has me convinced I flew backwards in time back to when I was in kindergarten. That's the close ...more

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.

Classic Disney tale about a wicked fairy who casts a spell on a princess, Aurora, that if she pricks her finger on a spindle of a spinning wheel before her 16th birthday, she will die. A good fairy quickly cast another spell, that if the wicked spell happened, Aurora would fall into a slumber and a kiss from a true love would awaken her. I think everyone knows what happened next, she pricks her finger, falls into a deep slumber and is kissed by a prince, her true love.

Lovely illustrations in this adaptation of Disney's Sleeping Beauty, which focuses more on events that occur with the prince than with Aurora herself. Still, though, children who are fans of this tale and movie are sure to enjoy this. Recommended.

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)!

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.

Review to follow!
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.

I was reading this to my son. First time I have ever read this. Good one. :-)

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.

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.
