The book itself is great! Super heroes and villains- everything a little kid would love. Illustrations are nice and stories are great for ages 5+.
Added some pics to show barcode sticker, illustrations and table of contents.
The book is organized into 12 stories and includes the following: The Amazing Spider-man: Keep away from Kraven the Hunter, Spider-man vs. Sandman, Spider-man vs. the sinister six, Peter Parker’s pictures, the uncanny X-Men: the X-men’s first mission, The mighty Thor: a brother’s battle, the Iron Man’s new armor, surprise attack, The mighty Avengers: Captain America Returns, Hawkeye and the mighty Avengers, The incredible Hulk: Desert Brawl, and the courageous Captain America: The lethal lair of red skull.
I found this to be a fun book to read and it reminded me of the comic books I used to read when I was a young boy. These stories were designed to be read in 5-minutes for each section.
Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Mighty Pen your self-defense friend: Tactical use of the pen for self-defense).
The 5 Minute Stories books come in a variety of different themes, such as princesses or Thomas the Tank Engine. This particular one focuses on Disney and Disney Pixar Christmas stories using the characters from both older and more recent movies. There isn't a listing of the stories included so I am listing them, along with the movie the characters are from in parentheses.
1. Santa's Little Helper (Mickey and Friends)
2. A Gift for WALL-E (WALL-E)
3. Christmas in Never Land (Peter Pan)
4. A Present for the Queen (Alice in Wonderland)
5. Snow Puppies (101 Dalmatians)
6. Christmas in Monstropolis (Monsters)
7. Merry Christmas, Winnie the Pooh! (Winnie the Pooh)
8. Aurora's Homemade Holiday (Sleeping Beauty)
9. Christmas Traditions (Lady and the Tramp)
10. Mater Saves Christmas (Cars)
11. A Meowy Christmas (Pinocchio)
12. A Perfect Party (Cinderella)
If you are familiar with the 5 Minute Stories, you know that the book has a hard but slightly puffy cover, thick paperback pages, and measures 8 inches by 10 3/4 inches by 3/4 inch so it will fit nicely next to any others in this series you own. The book has 188 pages and each story is about 16 pages long with several sentences on each page along with beautiful and colorful pictures. As the title suggests, these stories generally take about five minutes each to read but my twins are very curious and ask lots of questions so it takes us about ten minutes to read each story, which I don't mind! I have boy/girl twins so I was delighted to see that this book contains a variety of stories that appeal to both genders and they can each choose a story without fighting too much.
Each of these stories has been a lot of fun to read so far and my kids were so excited to receive this! We've already read several of them and they even like to look through the book on their own. If you are looking for a good Christmas book with lots of fun stories about characters from Disney movies, I highly recommend this one! It's appropriate for both boys and girls and is a fun way for everyone to read Christmas stories together!
The DC 5 minute storybook, by contrast, includes a bunch of creative (albeit silly) stories where the heroes use their brains to beat the bad guys. There's very little violence.
Violence has a place in stories, but I'd prefer to keep it out of stories for young kids who aren't quite mature enough to make good decisions about when to emulate their favorite super heroes.
Purchase for my 4 year old who is really into super heroes lately and needed something a little more involved than the Little Golden Books and Berenstain Bears.
This book is well drawn and illustrated, stories are just the right length to keep his attention and involved enough that he doesn't get bored due to the simplicity.
Hardcover is a bonus and is well constructed and should stand up to normal abuse/wear and tear.
Heavy weight paper, plenty of stories and a great selection of heroes show up for variety.
Would definitely recommend to anyone with a child who likes super heroes and needs a little more meat to bed time stories.
Especially if you can get this on a deal (less than $10)
