Book Worm

Belle loves her books so much that she reads them over and over and over again! One of her favorite books is about "far-off places, daring sword fights, magic spells, and princes in disguise," and she reads it so often that the bookseller even lets her keep it.

Have you ever read a book that made you feel like you were in a different world? That's how the Beast feels when Belle reads a book to him for the first time. Sit down with a grown-up and make a list of both of your favorite childhood books, and explain why you love them so much.

Then, pick one off the list or grab a new book and have your grown-up read to you and go on a journey together in a new world. Or, if you're ready, you can even read to your grown-up.
