Summer is a great time to catch up on some of the biggest blockbuster movies that were released earlier this year. This week I'm featuring movie tie-in edition books for some of these movies. One of those movies was Zootopia. Now out on DVD, this is one of our favorite Disney movies to date. One of the things I love about movies, are the books inspired by the movie. Today I'm featuring two books that are great for young fans of the movie, Zootopia.

Rating: 5 Owlets - We Loved It
I received this book from the publisher to review, in exchange for my honest review 

8x8 paperback with read-along audio CD based on the feature film, Zootopia. 

A fantastic book / read along for fans of the movie, Zootopia. Between the fabulous narrators, and the great illustrations based on the movie, this book is the perfect companion for the movie. It's also makes a great book/CD to take on the road. With it's family friendly audio, the entire family can enjoy this book! 

We loved this book. The narrators are great! While Cindy Robinson narrates it, we loved that Disney used the same actors; Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba and Jenny Slate to narrate their same characters in the book. This book is definitely worth picking up!

Rating: 4 Owlets - It's A Cute Read
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review

Officer Judy Hopps is on an exciting case in Zootopia. Her day started out like any other, until she stumbled across a crying elephant who was missing his Jumbo-pop. Hand-in-hand, the two retraced his steps and followed clues across the city. Will this whirlwind tour lead them to the Jumbo-pop before it melts?

Officer Judy Hopps is on the case, and this time she's helping a young elephant find his missing jumbo-pop. Retracing all their steps, fans of the movie will enjoy seeing various characters from the movie through out the book, as they visit all the places in Zootopia to find the jumbo-pop. This is a cute story with cute illustrations that are perfect for even the youngest fans of the movie, Zootopia. We enjoyed this one, and would recommend picking it up. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
