4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, 6 Jan 2013

This review is from: Little Mermaid Book & CD (Disney Storybook & CD) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My little boy is 5 and loves this book. He knew the story of the Little Mermaid from the film, which is a favourite of his, hence was very pleased to get this.

The story is quite short, only about quarter of an hour so really good for before bedtime. Usually we like these audio books for in the car but this is a little short for long trips. The voices of the characters are like the ones in the film so will be familiar to those whoo are fans of the film. There are sound effects to tell the reader when to turn the page which is great for kids just learning to read.

The illustrations are really good - if you have seen the film you will know what to expect. The book printing is good quality too - fairly durable for the age it is targetted at. All in all, we are very happy with this and would recommend it to fans of the film who are at the age of learning to read in particular.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality cd and book - great for reading along, 7 Dec 2012

This review is from: Little Mermaid Book & CD (Disney Storybook & CD) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a nice quality book. It measures approximately 8 by 10 inches. The exterior is slightly padded. The pages are a little thin - not sure how durable they are. The illustrations are very nice - modern Disney with excellent colours. The CD is good quality with the original voices from the movie.

A jingly bell sound tells the reader when to turn the page for following the pictures or reading along, depending on ability. Each double page has a large illustration and approximately a third of a page of writing - the font is quite small - I would suggest age 6 and above, but it will depend on the reader.

The story is quite sweet - a bit of villainy and conflict but nothing too scary - this is Disney after all... I think possibly a decent bed time book - not too exciting... I haven't seen the film but I am guessing this is abridged- the CD runs for just shy of 15 minutes.

This review is from: Little Mermaid Book & CD (Disney Storybook & CD) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a lovely story. Anyone who has seen the wonderful 'Little Mermaid' will know how enchanting this story is, and how appealing for little girls.

The story is quite short, (around 15 minutes)but the children liked that as it could be played in part or full before bedtime. There are little chime sound effects to tell the reader when to turn the page and the narrative is really good and made interesting - like a mini version of the movie. The story is exciting and just the right amount of cheeky and scary. Would suit children aged around 5/6 years old.

The illustrations are wonderful just as you'd expect from Disney and in our house the girls wanted to start drawing the mermaid and other characters. A very good buy, and this book is bound to be a favourite with all little girls.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quiet time for parents, 18 Nov 2012

This review is from: Little Mermaid Book & CD (Disney Storybook & CD) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My daughter said this book and CD was great. I asked why and she said it was because she loves the story.

If you've seen the film then you know what to expect here. I let my nearly 6-year-old daughter listen to the CD whilst reading the book. The CD runs for just under 15-minutes. This is one track that contains all the story and has chimes ringing for when the page in the book needs to be turned.

And the voices of the characters are like the ones in the film. The only bit that didn't work well was that Prince Eric falls in love with Ariel's singing in the story, but the actual singing is missing from the CD.

The book is well laid out with nice full page pictures running throughout.

The CD itself fits into the front cover of the book with a plastic covering holding it in, and the book is hardcover too. This means it isn't as flimsy as some other books that come with CDs where the CD holder gets ripped out by little hands.

Most of all I think this book is ideal for girls who are familiar with the Little Mermaid film and are learning to read, so that they can give their parents some quiet time as they go off somewhere to listen to the CD and read the book.

Might have to get some of the other ones in the series too.

This review is from: Little Mermaid Book & CD (Disney Storybook & CD) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The makers of this book have got it just right. Like the others in the series, it is full colour pages telling very simply the story. Just right to be read before bedtime. The CD that comes with it I first thought was a bit of a waste of time. At only 15mins it seemed a bit of a cheap gimmick, but it is actually the perfect time for a little one to listen to whilst turning the pages.
A good idea well made.
