Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, the live-action adaptation of the studio’s animated classic is out on June 6th! If you grew up loving the cartoon version, I have a sneaking suspicion you will like the live-action version too. The story line is very similar to what you know and love with a couple additions and different twists to keep the story a little more real. Plus, there are a couple extra songs.
With Summer almost here and school being out for us and many others almost out, it’s time for reading logs to make their appearance. And after watching Beauty and the Beast, I suspect there might be some reading inspiration. Our girls are already big readers, but having list and a log to fill out helps encourage them even more. Plus, they are slightly competitive.
What’s more is that you can win prizes this summer by joining the 2017 Summer Reading Adventure!
