    The Disney version was my favorite as a small kid and I still love it. I think the original book had a lot more going on and in some ways, it seemed more realistic to me. Disney version is exactly like a fairy tale. I think I love both the versions. But this book has some missing parts like the part where Pinocchio's nose grows is not at all there.

    Family favourite at our house and I love to see the look on the little ones faces when I say your nose is growing. What am I like.

    This is such a magical story. A father loving his child that he gets a chance to be a real live boy. Great story you can enjoy again and again.

    It's interesting to read the Disney Golden Book version of Pinocchio right on the heals of original Collodi version. The Golden Book is a pared down version of an already pared down version. In their brevity, they both try to make a coherent story out of Collodi's rambling allegories. Characters that survive the transition from Collodi to Disney are Pinocchio, Geppetto, the Blue Fairy, the cat and fox (renamed), the puppeteer (now named Stromboli), the cricket (now named Jiminy), and the giant s It's interesting to read the Disney Golden Book version of Pinocchio right on the heals of original Collodi version.

Scenes that survive: the carving of Pinocchio, the initial meeting of Jiminy and Pinocchio, the puppet show, Pleasure Island (a new name), the rescue of Geppetto and Pinocchio's transformation. Frankly I'm still not a fan of either version of Pinocchio. In the original, Pinocchio is unlovable and brings most of the trouble onto himself. In the Disney version, Pinocchio is naive but otherwise likeable. He ends up sacrificing so much of himself just to fit in by way of becoming a "real boy."

    The final story I choose to read was the tall tale Pinocchio. This story is an exaggeration of what can happen if you lie to others. The lesson that this book brings is that it is best to be honest even in situations that it might be hard. Pinocchio’s noes grew with every lie and while student know that it is impossible for a noes to grow when they lie the story helps them understand the negative consequences that might happen if they fib. I really enjoyed reading this story because I have heard The final story I choose to read was the tall tale Pinocchio. This story is an exaggeration of what can happen if you lie to others.

I really enjoyed reading this story because I have heard references to it my whole life, and never saw the movie or read the book. I think this story is valuable and would be great for students to learn morals, and honesty.

    This story is fun and impressive. And very good thing is we can learn many things about this book. First, lie is bad thing. Second, love family. And more things. Pinocchio looks like child. He like playing, and good at be deceived. This book include adventure story. And I found interesting things, and that is 'if people lying, people's nose are longer and longer'. This is real story. So, I recommend this book. This story is fun and impressive. And very good thing is we can learn many things about this book. First, lie is bad thing. Second, love family. And more things.

    Gepetto is an elderly man who made a wooden puppet named Pinocchio. One day, Gepetto wished upon a star that Pinocchio would turn into a real boy. His wish came true and he grew a conscience. After a lot of trials and tribulations, Pinocchio proves he is worthy of being a real boy and stays like that forever. This is a well written story, however, I don’t think I would read it to my class. I think the concept is too realistic for them to understand fully.

    A very fun classic! This book is about a boy who tells lies but when he does his nose grows. Finally at the end he confesses to all of his lies and his nose returns to normal. I love this book because it teaches students that lying is bad. This book is defiantly different than the movie but in a good way!

    Pinocchio is an admirable story for all ages, having been popular for years and years. Pinocchio has a conscience just like we do. His conscience is named Jimmy Cricket. Sometimes Pinocchio makes the wrong choices, like we do, and always reaps the consequences. But when he chooses the right, he is blessed, just like we are. I love this story!

    I love this traditional fairy tale and remember reading it when I was younger. In order to become a real boy Pinocchio must be truthful and never lie. Every time Pinocchio lies his nose grows longer. The boy realizes that he must tell the truth to be able to turn into a real boy. This book is a lot longer than I thought it would be.

    I’m reading a whole bunch of Disney books because I found all of my childhood books. Pinocchio is the first one I decided to read. Not disappointed at all! It is as fun and magical as I remembered it as a kid.

    This is a cute book which follows along with the movie. If your child loves the movie, this is a good book to give them.

    The Walt Disney book is very good. I have to say though that the Walt Disney movie is so much better with the music and details.

    This book follows Geppetto as he creates puppets and Pinocchio (one of Geppetto's puppets) and his journey to be a real boy! He makes a lot of friends and even some enemies along the way.

    It's a classical book for kids to read. I used to like reading this when I was little, so might the kids in this day in age. It's a classical book for kids to read. I used to like reading this when I was little, so might the kids in this day in age.

    A beautiful story for children. While narrating I make it hilarious. It teaches great morals about always telling the truth and always helping others to be a real boy.

    This story is one I rarely read or watched in movie form as a child. I really like it, though and I think the message behind it is good. Students could learn about being honest or selfless or brave from this story. They could learn all of this while reading a classic fairytale, something many of them will probably already be aware of. I think it is important to incorporate stories like these classics in he classroom because children should be able to read stories that relate to their interests a This story is one I rarely read or watched in movie form as a child.

I think it is important to incorporate stories like these classics in he classroom because children should be able to read stories that relate to their interests and fairytales and Disney stories are appropriate for their age. Many children just know Disney fairytales as movies, too, so giving them the chance to read rather than watch their favorite Disney fairytale could be beneficial to them. Also, since they are written in many forms, from many different countries, there are plenty of opportunities for them to see different cultures' takes in the story.
