Here's the thing about this book. It's pretty much some images from the movie, with a very shortened version of the story. I think of it like a souvenir of watching the movie, without adding anything at all. It doesn't even read well if you haven't seen the movie. Not really a book in and of itself. THREE STARS FOR THE BOOK.

BUT, here's the thing. My 3 y.o. daughter LOVES it. She sleeps with it. She carries it with her wherever she goes. She sits and looks at it quietly for tens of minutes on car rides, totally engaged. So whatever magic the book has, I cannot deny. It was pretty cheap and she's gotten hours of enjoyment from it. FIVE STARS FOR MY DAUGHTER'S REACTION TO IT.

So, I'll give it FOUR, despite my general lack of passion for the book.

This isn't like most of the other Little Golden Disney books we have. Those seems to glaze over violent scenes and themes of death from the movie, which make them good for my preschooler. This one has several scenes I find questionable and scary for my child. I'm really disappointed in Little Golden books for this one. For example, this book actually uses the phrase "plunged the knife into Beast's back." That's too extreme for a child's book, in my opinion. We also have the Cinderella, Frozen, and Tangled Little Golden books. Those are all much milder and more appropriate. Not sure what happened with this one.

Beauty and the Beast has always been one of my favorite Disney stories. The movie came out when I was a kid and it's since always held a special place in my heart. I'm thrilled that my daughter has developed a love for reading and she absolutely adores the story of Belle and the enchanted castle.

There is a lot packed in to this Little Golden Book!! Often these books are very abridged versions of the story to fit the length and size of the book. This one packs a thorough telling of the story into this Little Golden treasure! Because of this, I wouldn't at all classify this is a beginning reader book. This is a full story with multiple paragraphs per page. My 5 year old loves the story but is nowhere close to being able to read this one herself. I'd say a second or third grader could enjoy reading this one solo. Possibly even a little older.

Golden Books are always high quality and well produced, and this one is no different. The illustrations are bright and visually appealing and follow along with scenes from the movie.

I'd recommend adding this book to your collection if you have a princess fan, Disney lover, or overall lover of good stories.

Beauty and the Beast has always been my favorite Disney movie/story so I wanted to purchase this for my young daughter who also likes it. The book is good quality, the cover is made of a thick cardboard. The pictures in the book were very nice and look like they come straight from the movie. Great book to add to your Golden book collection.

Got this to include in a gift basket I'm putting together for my daughter and her friend before going to see Beauty & the Beast. Hoping this gift pack will keep them from wanting to by the $95 toys they sell inside the venue.

This is a watered down version of beauty and the beast. It's pretty durable for the price and my girls love this (ages 2 and 3). They can sit through the whole story no problem, takes about 10 to 15 minute's to read, perfect length for a bedtime story or just a cute book for a random story time.

When I was growing up the first books that I can remember owning were the Little Golden Books especially the Walt Disney titles. The first title that I can fondly remember was "Darby O'Gill and the Little People" that my parents bought me. What I remember most and what really interested me were the illustrations. I had seen the film in the theater and I was really interested in having this book to go along with the movie. I spent many hours over the coarse of my childhood looking at those pictures and savoring all the enjoyment they gave me helping me relive my experience of seeing that film. Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" is a treasure to see. I like the style of the illustrations, the look, not quite the same as "Darby O'Gill and the Little People" as I remember, but new and upbeat. However, life does comes full-circle I suppose. I just found my copy of "Darby O'Gill and the Little People" in the cellar the other day. I picked it up and looked through it. I suppose this was the first time that I really looked at the illustrations, I mean really looked at them. They didn't look quite that new any more. They were beginning to show their age. I just didn't realize how many years had passed since I had look at Little Golden Books. Life continues on with another circle. I am so glad that I found this new book, Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" to just flip through it and be able to clutch it in my hands and just remember all the good things that Little Golden Books have brought to so many generations through the years.

Pages larger than cover. Good story line. Nice pictures. Wouldn't take that much to make it perfect -- simply cut the pages smaller so they don't stick out of the book and be more likely to be torn or crushed.
