About The Book
Lexi-Lou loves to dress up and dream big. But most of all, Lexi-Lou loves to sing! Join her as she sets off with her dog, Monkey, to assemble the best little rock band around. It's not going to be easy to find the perfect band mates AND stage the perfect concert. It will take a lot of rockin' and rollin' to make Lexi-Lou's Punkydoo dreams come true. Includes a CD with an original song by The Punkydoos!

My Thoughts
This is another great Disney book for kids. The Punkydoos Take The Stage is one of those books that is just cheerful, and upbeat both with the story and the illustrations. I really enjoyed it. 

Lexi-Lou is a kid who is many things. She's a superhero, chef, secret agent and a rock star! She loves to sing. She sings and dances all the time. I liked that instead of telling her to stop having so much fun, her big brother asked her when she having her concert. Lexi-Lou sets up to find her band. It doesn't take Lexi-Lou long to find her friends who like her, love to play music. Together they form their band, The Punkdoos. After some practicing together, they perform their first concert. 

As an added bonus, this book not only includes the song The Punkydoos sing, it also comes with a CD! Kids will love singing along and dancing with The Punkydoos when they finish reading the book. I really enjoyed the story. This is one that would make a great kid to Pre-K & Kinder aged kids. The illustrations alone are fabulous. This is one of those books that makes reading children's picture books fun.

the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
