Have you seen this Disney TV series? We have a couple of the DVDs here at the Plano Public library and, after reading this book, I am almost tempted to check them out. I love Elena. Elena reminds me of the beloved heroines of old: Laura Ingles Wilder and Little Women. Although Elena is a beautiful princess, she is also a well-rounded and wholesome character who could be a good role model for any young girl. She is brave, intelligent, and has great relationships with her family and friends. She is thoughtful and recognizes the particular strengths others have that can help her in life, yet she is not afraid to make tough decisions for herself. Elena is a leader in every sense of the word. This book is a dossier on Elena, broken into sections that highlight each of her attributes. Highly recommended for Elena fans ages 5 and up. A very nice read-aloud, loaded with great pictures to evoke the imagination.
