Tiana's Dream

by RH Disney

This is a Stepping Stones chapter book based on the new Disney move, The Princess and the Frog. It is one of the first chapter books  read with my 6 year old daughter. She absolutely loved the book, except for the "scary" parts. (We skipped over those!)

As much as we love and appreciate that there is now a princess that is "brown like me," the book and the move have a very dark side to them. There is alot of black magic and voodoo. When we saw the movie in the theater, she closed her eyes and ears for parts just as we skipped over a few pages when reading the book. Overall, we both love the book. I like that it encourages hard work and determination. She loves it because Tiana is a princess who looks like her!

I will have to look for this. My daughter was the same way at the theater. It is a bit dark, but the overall story is fantastic.
