Disney Princess Essential Guide
by Dorling Kindersley Publishing
Reading level: Ages 4-8
Young girls obsessed with Cinderella, Ariel the mermaid, or Jasmine from Aladdin will revel in DK's 48-page "essential guide" to Disney princesses. Much like DK's usual approach to marine life or history, the creators briefly describe the characteristics and habitat of each princess in a highly visual format. For example, Snow White facts include what everyone knows (lips as red as roses, cheerful, hated by the queen, etc.), but readers will also find colorful, full-page illustrations of Snow White's world, complete with Dark Forest, the cottage where the Seven Dwarfs live, etc.

All of the princess characters, including that of Belle and Aurora, are similarly examined. Parents whose children have seen the Disney princess movies 8,000 times each may be happy to direct their kids' attention to a book that summarizes the plots of the various stories and brings the characters to life. Scenes from Disney films and cutout Disney artwork will surely please fans. (Ages 6 and older)
