Sweet Retro GoodnessMar 29, 2008
This book is great for any Dumbo fan! I enjoy the illustrations, which were done by Disney artists of the time. The story is very much like the movie. One reviewer states that there is nothing about Dumbo losing the magic feather and believing in himself, however it is in there. Another, reveiwer felt some of the lines were odd. Personally, I adore those lines! The line about the pension makes me laugh out loud. This book might be more wordy than picture books of today, but as an educator and avid reader, I appreciate books that might make a child sit and pay attention for longer periods of time. Our society has become too instant, too immediate, and believe me those ideas are reflected in how little time children want to take on their school work.

Dumbo (Little Golden Book)Jan 19, 2012
Wonderful story and pictures. Loved it as a child, and still love it as an adult. Would recommend it for both girls and boys.

I used to read this book to my daughters when they were little and so I bought it for my oldest daughter to read to my granddaughter. My girls loved the book and I'm sure that my granddaughter will as well.
Vintage charm, they make lovely party favors!Feb 24, 2013

I bought several of these books for my daughter's birthday party (Dumbo themed, of course) to give out as favors. They arrive in beautiful condition, the binding hand't even been cracked yet, and I just love the vintage charm this book has! All the illustrations are reminiscent of the times Dumbo became popular--as the movie was released in 1941.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a good addition to their Disney collection, any Dumbo fan, any child's book collection--but they make especially cute party favors!
Not a greatbook for reading to toddlersFeb 11, 2013
i bought this for my 3 year old son, he loves elephants and I knew he would love the story. However, the book is too wordy without enough pictures and sometimes skips information that may be clearer for an older child but leaves a younger one baffled. Also, he has had a hard time understanding why they would separate a baby elephant from his mommy and put her in a cage...
