    It felt rushed at the end but otherwise it was a very good story.

    Walt Disney's adaptation of The Prince and the Pauper has familiar Disney characters such as Mickey, Goofy, and Donald play the main characters in the Mark Twain classic. The tale takes place in old England where townspeople are suffering under the rule of a greedy captain that took over when the king fell ill. A young prince notices Mickey being harassed by the Captain's army and calls him into the castle where it is discovered that they look remarkably similar.

A young prince notices Mickey being harassed by the Captain's army and calls him into the castle where it is discovered that they look remarkably similar. Micky and Prince trade places for a day and the Prince experiences first hand the suffering of the people under the Captain's rule. He returns all of the food and goods that the army had stolen from the townsfolk. The Prince is later joyously crowned king. This is a heartwarming story of righting injustices that teaches young children about the negative effects of greed and the positive effects of doing the right thing. It is a simple and enjoyable story that teaches a powerful lesson that the teacher could discuss with the children. The book also has vocabulary such as prince, king, castle, army, armor, kingdom, and dungeon that could be practiced.

    Delightful classic with a Disney twist. We love this because it is twice the Mickey fun!

    Disney’s version of The Prince and the Pauper employs all of the classic, lovable Disney characters to expose young readers to this classic tale of look-a-likes. This book also shows readers the negative effects of a bad government or ruler and the importance of taking care of the people who serve you, if you are in a position of power. This book could also be a great tool when teaching young students about different forms of government as many children will be unfamiliar with the way that kings Disney’s version of The Prince and the Pauper employs all of the classic, lovable Disney characters to expose young readers to this classic tale of look-a-likes.

This book could also be a great tool when teaching young students about different forms of government as many children will be unfamiliar with the way that kings and queens rule nations. One aspect of this book that I appreciated was the end pages. Because the two main characters in this story look exactly like each other and the end pages use the spine of the book to create a mirror effect, showing the two characters doing the exact same things on opposite sides of the book’s spine.

    The Prince and the Pauper by Walt Disney Company. The book is about this beggar and a prince who look the same and trade lives for a day. It was hard for the prince because he didn't know what to do. The beggar loves it. I don't recommend the book because there are too many words. I don't like the setting. I don't really like medieval times. The story was boring because I wasn't feeling it. I wasn't a really big fan of the book.

    So, it is bedtime and this was the book my baby picked. She said "I want to read the book with the 2 Mickey's". It was easy to read and the illustration was action packed. Her favorite part was when the the "Prince" Mickey wanted to make friends and play with this little dog but three big dogs decided to chase "Prince" Mickey as a better game. Go figure!

    I wanted a relatively simple book to read in French, and this certainly fit the bill. I found the book in the Children's Foreign Language section of Half Price Books, and read it in its entirety on an airplane flight. I didn't really remember the Disney movie - although I think I saw it when I was young - but all of the pictures helped me translate some of the words I didn't know.

    Mommy's review from 9/14/09 - Julia was very into this book- from the first page. I think the story itself interests her because one of her favorite movies is Barbie's The Princess and the Pauper. Maybe that's what started her with this too but in the end she absolutely loved this one.

    Cute illustrations, of course, but in some places, it seemed like a little too much of the story was cut so it didn't make as much sense as it could have.

    I like that Disney wrote a version of the Prince and the Pauper. It’s a good read for children, this book allows children to view perspective and that sometimes we need to look at things from someone else’s point of view.

    Two boys trade lives. They change their clothes in order to trick people. Kind of like a Freaky Friday situation.

    This is a fun creative Disney book starting Mickey Mouse. The illustrations were just right and kept the story alive with the right amount of detail.

    Inspired by Mark Twain's "The Prince and The Pauper," this is a wonderful little tale about two boys who desire different lives. The prince wants to be a regular lad in the kingdom, and the boy, or pauper, desires to be a prince. They each get their own wish, and chaos results. In fact, they both are thrown in the dungeon. Through their hectic experiences, each boy chooses to be what he was meant to be. The grass isn't really greener on the other side of the fence.

Writing Trait: The Prince and the Pauper includes many writing traits: a. Ideas: The story includes key points (a message or a meaning) and has a positive impact on the reader. b. Organization: The story hooks the reader, has a purpose and a logical structure, implements clear transitions and has a satisfying conclusion. c. Voice: The voice of the story is entertaining; it includes age appropriate language (although a few words may need to be defined). d. Conventions: Accurate sentences, paragraphs, spelling and punctuation are used throughout the story. 5. Usage for Classroom Instruction: This book could be read aloud in a lower level elementary school classroom (K-3). I would use this book for classroom instruction to teach about conventions because this book is a little longer and contains all of the necessary elements of conventions (spelling words consistently, accurate paragraphs, effective punctuation, correct capitalizations and proper grammar usage). The book is easy to read and the sentences are clear. Additionally, I could teach young children about the negative effects of greed and the positive effects of doing the right thing (the messages portrayed in the story). It is a simple and enjoyable story that teaches a powerful lesson that I could discuss with the children. The book also has vocabulary such as prince, king, castle, army, armor, kingdom, and dungeon that could be practiced and studied (dependent on grade level). 6. Interest Level: K-3 7.

    My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community. They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start on. http://spreadthewordnevada.org/ Myself, I go My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community.

Sometimes I'll find a book I remember reading when I was young and will read it again before passing it on. I don't rate these books using my normal scale, instead I give most of them three stars. This isn't a Criticism of the book, simply my way of rating them as good for children.

    This is the Disney version of the Mark Twain novel. Although the characters and story is very child friendly, I feel as if the tale may be a bit complex to really grasp what is being portrayed. With that said the design of the book is great with great fillers, and illustrations throughout. The book is hardcover with many reels guiding your eyes across the pages.

    This is a great book to teach children about positive things that happen when you choose to do the right thing and also how people are affected when others are greedy and negative.
