Do you love finding books your children love? Me, too! Thanks to Disney-Hyperion for sending me a copy of Vampirina At The Beach, I’ve discovered a fun new read. They’ve also provided a fun prize pack giveaway for Rural Mom readers, too. All opinions and love of reading, are that of Rural Mom… read on to find out more!
When I was little, my brother taught me how to read, likely so I could join in his love of comic books (which I certainly did!) This wonderful experience, reading with him on our back-porch, instilled my life-long love of reading and is a childhood memory I truly treasure.
Vampirina At The Beach (Vampirina Ballerina Series) by Ann Marie Pace and illustrated by LeUyen Pham (Release: April 4th, 2017) is a book I know I would have loved to read as a child. It’s wonderfully illustrated, imaginative and celebratory of our unique differences. This is exactly the type of book I look forward to reading my granddaughter as I help her discover the joys of literature.
The Vampirina Ballerina series is recommended for ages 2-6, perfect for the Disney Junior crowd. You’ll find more details below and can discover even more by visiting the Official Site and following Disney-Hyperion on Twitter and Instagram (look for hashtag #VampirinaBallerina)
About Vampirina At The Beach
When the summer moon is full, a beach trip is an epic way to spend the night.
With her signature poise, Vampirina and her clan gear up for a festive time at the beach. Keeping her ballet lessons in mind, Vampirina demi-pliés on a surfboard, leaps for a volleyball, and finishes each competition with style, even if she doesn’t always come out on top.

Vampirina Ballerina Series: Additional Titles
Oh, to be a ballerina! It’s a challenge for any little girl, but even more so if you happen to be a vampire like Vampirina. First of all, you have to find a class that meets at night. Then you have to figure out how to perfect your form when you can’t see yourself in the mirror? And then there’s wearing pink (not the most flattering of colors if you happen to be undead) and that nagging urge to take a little nip out of the other dancers. And worse of all… STAGE FRIGHT!!!
Vampirina Ballerina Hosts a Sleepover
Before Vampirina can host her very first sleepover there are a few things she must keep in mind: be polite and offer her guests food (like blood pudding); plan some games like scavenger hunt (but keep the clues simple so no one gets lost); and don’t forget to dance! Vampirina may be a little nervous at first, but by following a few simple rules she will host the Best Sleepover Ever.
