If your child watches Encanto on repeat (and yes, we’re all guilty of that), you’ll love this: Little Golden Books has published an edition based on the popular Disney film and it’s selling on Amazon for only $3.99.
Encanto (which was released November 24, 2021) follows the story of the Madrigal family who live in an enchanted casita in the hills of Colombia. Everyone in the family is gifted with a magical skill, except for Mirabel, who yearns for her own identity particularly among sisters Luisa who has super strength and Isabela whose beauty produces gorgeous flowers. However when the family home — and the magic that comes with it — starts to deteriorate, Mirabel discovers that her gift is about to materialize.
The film has been celebrated for its cultural diversity, a storyline that depicts the pain of generational trauma, and of course, a soundtrack composed by Lin-Manuel Miranda never hurts. Some fans have also aligned themselves with the characters, including a social media star whose impressions of Luisa have inspired strength in her daughter and a two-year-old boy whose resemblance to the character Antonio, whose gift is the ability to communicate with animals, has instilled pride in himself.
