Her father wants her to be happy so he gives her a gift. It is a tiger cub, which Jasmine names Rajah. Jasmine & Rajah become great friends, they play all day and the cub sleeps next to Jasmine’s bed. But as time passes Rajah grows, and grows and grows! Can they continue to be friends?
Most little girls have a few things in common… their favorite color is often pink and they may be obsessed with Princesses… especially the Disney princesses. What better way to encourage young learning readers than to tap into their favorite things? If you have a young princess at home she may enjoy one of the many Disney Princess easy readers we have available at the library like What is a Princess by Jennifer Liberts Weinberg and The Sweetest Spring by Apple Jordon. Of course, just because they are starting to be able to read on their own doesn’t mean your children won’t want you to read with them anymore. Longer Disney picture books like Princess: A Read-aloud Storybook will be perfect for parent and child bonding time.
