Disney Minnie: My Colorful Closet

Title: Disney Minnie: My Colorful Closet
Genre: Picture Book
Reading Level: Ages 4 to 6
Curriculum Subject: Art

My Colorful Closet is a fun interactive book about Daisy and Minnie trying out new clothes for summer as a rainy day activity. The plot itself is short and simple, but it has the added enjoyment of letting the reader decide what patterns to use for the different outfits by putting one of the ten different patterns in the slot on each page.

One potential negative of the book is that the patterns are somewhat limited with them being mostly pinks, purples, and yellows. However, you can easily make your own patterns to put in the slots using scrapbook paper or by designing your own on cardstock, which makes this book great for incorporating with art curriculum.

Types of Readers Book Might Appeal To & Multiple Intelligence Categories

  • The colorful scenes and patterns along with the animated character expressions can help draw in visual learners. (Spatial-Visual)
