Review: Rapunzel's Amazing Hair

Welcome to my first children's book review!

I have a three year old daughter that I love to read with. Plus, I just love kids books! I thought I'd share some of our favorites, old and new.

Title: Rapunzel's Amazing Hair
Author: Kiki Thorpe
Illustrator: Claire Keane
Publisher: Disney Press
Goodreads | Amazon

I couldn't find a decent picture of this book online, so I took this one myself. You can click on any of the pictures to make them bigger.

Description from Disney:
With fun, simple rhymes and vibrant illustrations by Claire Keane, one of the film’s animators, this jacketed picture book focuses on the funny and amazingly unexpected things Rapunzel does with her long golden tresses.

My Review:

This book is fabulous!

I recently went on a trip to Disneyland, and saw this book in one of the shops on Main Street. We didn't bring home very many souvineers, but as soon as I saw this book I knew it was going to be one of them.

First of all, if you haven't seen Tangled, then do! It is such a cute movie, and the music is awesome.

The writing in Rapunzel's Amazing Hair is really cute and whimsical, and the illustrations in it are so vibrant and beautiful.

From Claire Keane's blog, Claire on a Cloud:

Some pictures I took myself, to share with you:

Bright, colorful pages:

Cute, whimsical writing and illustrations:

My daughter and I both really enjoy this book. There are so many things that Rapunzel's hair can do! What is her amazing hair really, when she doesn't have the freedom to enjoy it as she wants?

Beautiful pictures. Beautiful words. A great addition to our personal library.

  5. She'll love it! It's super cute.

  6. I'm in my final year at university, before becoming a Primary School (Elementary School for those in the US) teacher. While in the classroom for the practical part of my courses, I love reading books to the class. The students seem to enjoy the different character voices, and I enjoy the stories. Literature is a great gift, and it’s great to be able to share it with children. Thanks for sharing!

  7. That's so neat, Alisa! I was going to go to school to become an elementary school teacher, but then I later changed my major to biology.

    This is a great book, and my daughter really enjoys it too!
