It was the night before Very Little Sleeping Beauty’s
birthday and she couldn’t sleep.Her
daddy sang songs, read stories, danced, tickled, and jumped with her on the
bed.She still needed her blanket, bear
and a drink.Aunt Fairy brought her a
spinning wheel and Very Little Sleeping Beauty broke it.Aunt Fairy yelled and Very Little Sleeping
Beauty cried. Daddy helped them make up, but by the time Very Little Sleeping
Beauty went to bed it was late.She
slept through her party the next day and until the night.So they had a pajama party instead.Very Little can be found in a couple of other
fairytale rewrites: Very Little Red
Riding Hood and Very Little Cinderella.Very Little is very like most little
girls her age and will appeal to their imaginations.The illustrations are bright, colorful, and
imaginative.This new spin on Sleeping
Beauty is a great choice to put your own little sleeping beauty to bed.
