Disclosure: Thanks to Disney for sending me the book, and for providing a prize pack!
In our home, reading is not only one of our favorite things to do, it is one of the most important things that we do. When I was a kid I loved to read and from the moment my girls first learned to read, I could not wait for them to fall in love with reading the way I did. From my experience, the best way to get your kids to fall in love with reading is by giving them books to read that they are interested in. So, for now that's one of my goals- find books that my girls will love to read.
My girls have been in love with Disney's first Latina princess, Elena of Avalor since we first met her this Summer. We had a blast filming this UnBoxing video and kept the fun going with this Elena of Avalor viewing party. I love that they have such a brave, adventurous Princess for my girls to look up to that looks like them too. They are so excited each time a new episode is on, they make me mark it on the family calendar.

About Elena of Avalor
The fable, set in an unspecified time period, incorporates influences from diverse Latin and Hispanic cultures. It introduces Elena as a brave and adventurous teenager who saves her kingdom from an evil sorceress and must now learn to rule as crown princess until she is old enough to be queen. Elena's journey will lead her to understand that her new role requires thoughtfulness, resilience and compassion, the traits of all truly great leaders.
