NEW YORK, NY — We are the authors of a new children’s historic fiction book about Walt Disney and the B.S. Moss Colony Theater being released this month by Simon and Schuster. BLAST TO THE PAST: DISNEY’S DREAM is geared to 7 to 11 year olds and perfect for anyone interested in this slice of theater history.

DISNEY’S DREAM asks readers to consider what the world be like if Walt Disney had given up his dreams and quit?

The book takes place entirely around Broadway in 1928. It is the task of four third grade students to time travel to Broadway’s B.S. Moss Colony Theater and convince Walt Disney of the immeasurable value his work will mean to future generations. The novel focuses on the moment when Walt Disney added sound to his Steamboat Willie cartoon simultaneously introducing Mickey Mouse and solidifying his place in American history.

I have never read the book, but I know it may be perfect for the kids who have learning disabilities. The book is about Walt Disney, who, according to some websites, had a possible case of A.D.D., or Dyslexia. Disney’s work may serve as an inspiration to them. I am not a teacher, but a person with A.D.D. I believe that children can face challenges head on. Also Dyslexia is something that can be overcome with proper schooling. These children really need to know that they have enough intelligence and, enough “outside of the box” thinking to achieve greatness.

The most essential component of a review is that it is an editorial, not just a rundown. It permits you to go into exchange and examination with the work’s maker and with different gatherings of people. You can offer understanding or difference and distinguish where you discover the work excellent or lacking in its information, judgments, or association. You ought to obviously express your supposition of the work being referred to, and that announcement will presumably take after different sorts of essay written work, with a theory explanation, supporting body sections, and a conclusion.

There is a wonderful book that always brings tears to my eyes. It is I’ll love you forever. It is about a boy whose mother holds him and sings to him until he grows up and she goes to his house and does it and when she is old he goes to her and does it and then goes home to his baby and does the same thing. There is a set of books that are titled Help Me Be Good. I don’t know the price but they teach children things like not to lie, steal, cheat, tattle or be rude. You know stuff like that. Also, Disney Storybook Collections are always nice. If you are willing to spend the money on it essay writers UK, buy a Baby’s First Leap pad she can share with the baby, and buy some books for it, like Guess How Much I Love You. It is just a suggestion. There is a book called Whose Nose Is This? It shows animals' noses and then on the next page it tells the animal. Brown Bear, Brown Bear and The Hungry Little Caterpillar are classics. The artist who did The Hungry Little Caterpillar does many other books too, if you want to get a few of his books. These are some books I have that I have shared with my children. I hope this helped. I am sure she will love whatever you get for her. Let me know how it goes and what you get.

Walt Disney adding sound to his Steamboat was one of the most memorable moments in my childhood.If I am not wrong that was first animated film with sound. It taught us something things About Us that we did not know before.
