I do recommend Waking Beauty and very highly recommend Falling for Rapunzel. Jan 31, Stewart rated it it was amazing Shelves: little-pissants. I'm always in search of children's books to read to my 3 year old that don't bore me to tears. I have grown tired of the pile of crappy children's books on my kid's shelves that seem to recycle the same thing over and over again. Of course, there are the old classics from my childhood but my children don't seem to latch on to them like I did.
For my daughters, princesses and all things girly is the key but I get a bit annoyed with the silly fairytales and blubbery princess stories tha I'm always in search of children's books to read to my 3 year old that don't bore me to tears. For my daughters, princesses and all things girly is the key but I get a bit annoyed with the silly fairytales and blubbery princess stories that depict weak, helpless females.
I'm not a feminazi by any means but I want to raise my daughters to be strong, independent women with minds of their own, not a sideline to a heroic prince. What I love about this hilarious rhyming take on Sleeping Beauty is that it twists the whole idea of a helpless princess just right. It's clever and funny enough that even I chuckled several times.

As I've mentioned in other reviews, I enjoy reading books to my children that rhyme. I delight in the way the words sound coming off my tongue and appreciate the lyrical playfulness of them. I think my kids feel the same way, but then again I've never asked. This book was a lucky find at the public library and one that I think I may actually buy if I can find it.
My daughter thoroughly enjoyed it and if I'm telling the truth, so did I. Mar 26, Jenny rated it it was amazing Shelves: children-s-lit. Waking Beauty by Leah Wilcox and illustrated by Lydia Monks is a funny read aloud for children of all ages. In this entertaining retelling of the classic fairy tale, Prince Charming goes in search of a dragon to slay, instead, he finds the snoring beauty.
Fairies attempt, many times, to tell the Prince what he must do to wake Sleeping Beauty, but he is too impatient to listen. He tries many different ways to wake Sleeping Beauty up, shouting, jumping on her bed, and dumping water on her head to Waking Beauty by Leah Wilcox and illustrated by Lydia Monks is a funny read aloud for children of all ages. He tries many different ways to wake Sleeping Beauty up, shouting, jumping on her bed, and dumping water on her head to name a few, without success.
He finally realizes what the fairies have been trying to tell him throughout the story and Prince Charming wakes her with a kiss, even though he had heard girls have germs. Unfortunately, for him, he did not ask the sleeping beauty for a kiss. Rhyming text and fun illustrations make the book a great read aloud for boys and girls alike.
Children and children at heart will ask for this story again and again.

Sep 16, Melissa rated it really liked it Shelves: humor , rhyme , picturebooks , elem , folklore , collage. Wow, how refreshing, a totally worthy follow-up to Falling for Rapunzel!
Same great fill-in-the-blank page turns and goofy collage illustrations. And love, love, love that Sleeping Beauty asserts herself after the Prince takes a kiss without permission.
Feb 21, Tasha rated it really liked it Shelves: picture-books. See the bright pink cover? What you can't see is the glitter on the title too. Looks like quite a book for little girls, doesn't it? But kissing the princess is only the beginning of a series of unfore—seen obstacles: man—eating bugs, deadly spindles, talking lapdogs, and fiery pickles.
