Daughter asked to get her the dvd but i said no as was too expensive for us. I offered her an alternative - a book, to which she said yes. She is six and a half and in year 2, she is a good reader, at the moment on ORT stage 11. Despite reading quite well, i won't say she is a book worm and usually will only read when she has to for school, or to please me! When the book arrived, i let her open the parcel, she was totally over the moon and got reading straight away, finished in one go and read it again at bed time. The book is very good quality, the cover is of cardboard, similar to the one you would get in infant books where every page is made of card board. Illustrations are out of this world, basically every bit of the book is designed to draw little girls attention and get them reading.
ps. the book was slightly easy for her, but i think when you read for pleasure it is supposed to be! i will now look more into the barbie series as she wants more barbie books.

This book is awful. It has a hardcover, but the pages themselves are really thin and unfinished round the edges. The binding is terrible. Although these books are really cheap I would not recommend them.
