Beauty and the Beast by Melissa Lagonegro

Title: Beauty and the Beast
Author: Melissa Lagonegro
Genre: Fantasy, Picture Books
Reading Level: Ages 4 to 6

This is a Level 2 Step Into Reading book. As such, it is meant to have a simple story. Usually this works out fine, but this one attempts to cover the whole movie plot. Thus, it ends up coming out too simple because there's just too much to condense into it.

This book may be an okay fit for those just starting to read and really into Belle and Beauty and the Beast, but otherwise go for another Level 2 book because there are definitely many out there that are simple while still feeling like it provides the whole story. For example, one that create a simple story focusing on specific movie characters (i.e. Moana: Pua and HeiHei) and/or just part of the movie.
