I admit it. I’m a snob. I tend to assume that nothing good can come out of glittery, pink, princess-obsessed paraphernelia. I try to weasel my way out of reading anything from a particularly pink volume we have that has all the Disney princesses on the cover. A few weeks ago, I relented.

“Probably nobody gave the Beast time-outs when he was young. He just never learned how to be good.”

This from one of my kids after we finished reading Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Ya just can’t judge a book by its pink and frilly cover.
