"In this adorable 8 x 8 storybook featuring the characters from the Disney Buddies franchise, B-Dawg tries to muster up the courage to ask the town's newest pooch to the big Valentine's Day Dance! This must-have 8x8 includes an all-new story and original illustrations plus stickers."

My Thoughts:

Any book that comes with stickers is an instant hit with my girls.  But, pair it with Disney Buddies and like Savannah says, "It is rufftastic!"  Last week, I was sent this recent release from the folks at Disney Press to share with my girls. Before I could even flip through the pages to see what the story was about, my girls were at my feet asking if B-Dawg and Rosebud were in it, and if they could see.  I told them that these main characters had to be in the book, as you can't have a Disney Buddies story without them.  You should have seen the quick breath of relief they gave.  But, they still stood there impatiently waiting for me to tell them to grab a spot on the couch so that we could read it. :-)

I have been trying to schedule activities throughout the day and list them on a wipe-off.  Not only has this helped me keep the girls entertained now that the are getting up earlier and not napping anymore, but it also lets them know we have structured play and activities and need to complete each activity and pick up before moving onto the next.  While the girls wanted to read this book, I had down practicing our letters and numbers.  After a few minutes of begging, I gave in and snuggled up with the girls to read this cute about B-Dawg trying to get the courage to ask the cutest pooch in town to go to the dance, even though he didn't know how to dance.  

As I flipped through each page, the girls kept getting excited as they pointed out each of the buddies, and kept asking me which was my favorite.  I would tell them all of them, but they wanted me to choose. In the end, I went with B-Dawg, as I loved how he was able to ask the new pooch out and had a blast at the dance.

If you are looking for a cute Valentine's Day themed book to read to your little ones, and they love Disney Buddies, this is definitely one book you want to check out.  And, the stickers were an added bonus -- which were added to my girls' sticker books in minutes.
