Sleeping Beauty is a kind of historical book, because the time of this book dose not show very clearly. It is also is a friction book, there are many magic elements inside this book.

The illustrations are bright and colorful and the story follows the tale of Aurora (Briar Rose) and how she is cursed by the evil fairy because she was not invited to her party. The three good fairies take her into the woods for her protection until her 16th birthday, but unfortunately they bring her back a day early. The story is slightly different from the original Sleeping Beauty because only Aurora falls asleep when she pricks her finger and the prince has to fight a dragon to get to her. Th ...more

I love sleeping beauty! 5/5

This is a great book to summarize the fantasy genre. It would be most suitable for K through fourth grade. It just really encompasses what fantasy and fairytales is all about. It's about a prince that saves the princess from doom. It's lighthearted at the end where he saves the day and everything goes back to normal.

Though this is an entertaining book for kids, I think it's about time we step away from the classic "guy saves girl" books.

Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty, by Michael Teitelbaum and Sue DiCicco, Little Golden Books, 1997.

The other day, my five-year-old son watched Disney's Sleeping Beauty for the first time. That night, he wanted me to read the LGB version of Sleeping Beauty to him. I was happy to comply.

The text of this LGB, although abridged by necessity, follows the story of the movie pretty faithfully. I don't actually mind straying too much, but since we had just seen the movie, I was happy that the book dovetail
