Pirates of the Caribbean by George Bruns

Based on one of Disney’s most popular attractions, this Pirates of the Caribbean picture book comes with a CD and fun and rowdy illustrations by Mike Wall. A must-have for any aspiring Disney pirate.

Timmy Failure 

Seriously. Timmy Failure is super fun. For both chapter book readers and adults. You just can’t help loving this mistake-making kid detective. Add in his sidekick polar bear companion- Total, their own detective agency Failure Inc. and a lot of mysteries to solve around town and you have one good story. Thankfully you can dive into the whole series. And watch the movie version on Disney+.

Artemis Fowl Series

If Artemis Fowl sounds like a crazy ride, you wouldn’t be wrong. This 12-year-old criminal mastermind- head of the Fowl criminal empire- kidnaps a fairy in exchange for a large ransom. This is an absolutely gripping series even if you never thought you’d believe in fairies. Artemis plays a hero-criminal battling greed, good and evil. This is a 9-book series, so you’ll have plenty to read, once you get hooked. 


Kingdom Keepers

Can’t go to Walt Disney World in real life? Get up close and personal with every Walt Disney World park in Ridley Pearson’s series about the bad guys coming out at night. The keys to the kingdom are held by a group of 5 kids that must protect the parks.

The Isle of the Lost Descendants Series

We love Descendants! Check out the book series that started it all. If you haven’t gotten a chance to see these Disney Channel Original Movies, catch up on Disney+ or read all about the Disney Villains’ descendants before you watch. Maleficent, The Evil Queen, Jafar, and Cruella have some pretty amazing kids, and they’re about to leave the Isle of the Lost. Heading to Auradon Prep our descendants arrive at the boarding school for the children of heroes and princesses. Get ready to clash.

The Twisted Tale Series

Winnie the Pooh by AA Milne

There is nothing so homey as Winnie the Pooh. While practically everyone has been raised with this silly old bear, how many have actually read the books? Let us tell you they’re cozy and comforting. Perfect for a rainy Sunday, anxious kids, or anyone needing to revisit the safety of childhood.

The Nightmare Before Christmas by Tim Burton

Ah, a Halloween-Christmas Mashup classic picture book for the whole family. Be sure to watch the film version as well. This is such a good story for both holidays all about accepting who you are, finding your path, and appreciating your strengths and the strengths of others. A must-read/see, every season.

Mary Poppins

P.L. Travers held pretty tight to her illustrious nanny Mary Poppins, known worldwide, as we learn in the film Saving Mr. Banks. And once you read the actual books you’ll see why. These are perfect Read-Aloud books for kids 8 and up. Take turns reading chapters before bed, and work through the series together. While these are digestible for younger children, the lessons held within are more relevant for the 8-12 crowd.
