Wordless Wednesday - Beauty and the Beast

We went to a performance of the musical Beauty and the Beast last weekend. My daughter enjoyed meeting Belle and showing off her Belle doll.

The musical is based on the Disney version, so it includes characters like Gaston and the enchanted objects. I had never read the original fairy tale until this week. The Walter Crane version can be read online at Internet Archive if you'd like to take a look. It's interesting to see how different illustrators portray the Beast. My daughter drew her own version last year. I saved it along with some of her other drawings and thought now was the perfect time to post it. I do love how her Beast turned out.

How sweet!

The other day, my 5 y.o. told me she wants to be Belle for Halloween. Belle is my favorite Disney princess. I'm going to have to check out the other version to see if she's still my favorite.

My girls would have loved to see that! Great pic and her drawings are sooo cute. I love kid's art work.
Thanks for letting me know about the baby toys on my blog post. I'll have to look for the balls that have objects in them. Sounds like something little man would just love!
Enjoy your day! Happy WW!

I'm sure meeting Belle was fabulous for her. She is truly a budding artist!
