This is a nice read aloud book that tells the story of Beale's (the beauty) relationship with the Beast. The Beast was once a prince that was spoiled and very selfish. One night a begger woman comes his castle and asks for shelter and in turn she would give him a single red rose. He refuses and the woman warns him not judge her on her appearance, but he slams the door in her face. The womans ugliness melts away and she is then a beautiful enchantress. When the prince tries to apologize it is too late and and she punishes him by turning him into a hideous beast. He later meets Beale and she is not frightened by him like everyone else is. She sees something in him and falls in love with him for who he is, not for what he is. This is a classic, and has one of the best morals. Never judge a book by its cover. I read this story to my daughters when they were small. I should probably read it to them again even today. This would be a great story to read to third and fourth graders because that is the age when they start noticing differences in themselves and their peers. After reading this to my class I could talk to them about getting to know people first before forming opinions about them. We could also talk about peer pressures and how it would feel to them if someone chose not to sit with them at the lunch table without getting to know them first.
IT WAS VERY FUN TO READ TO MY BABY SISTER IT WAS SAD AND BEATYFUL
