I have two boys who didn’t move an inch when they watched the DVD of Wreck it Ralph. Two weeks later and I can’t count how many times we have watched it. Disney added to the fun and created an app and books to go along with the movie. My boys are 3 and 9 and both are currently obsessed with the Wreck it Ralph Storybook Deluxe App.

Ralph’s only hope? Vanellope von Schweetz, a young trouble making “glitch” from a candy-coated, kart-racing game called Sugar Rush.

MOM AND KID REVIEW
My nine year old’s favorite part of the app is the Interactive racing game. It lets you create, decorate and then race your own kart against other racers in the film. My three year old likes the read along book and the clips of the movie. The app has many features which makes it worth the price for me, because even after a few weeks, the boys still choose the Wreck it Ralph app to play every time. It has Fantastic animation and sounds that you always get from Disney. Apps are available for the ipad, iphone, Nook and more
Wreck-It Ralph: One Sweet Race (Disney Wreck-It Ralph)
Age Range 3-9 years
Sometimes it is difficult to get boys excited about reading. One trick is to find books that relate to the child’s favorite movie character. Disney is great about creating fun and educational books to go along with their popular movies.
My boys are enjoying reading the Wreck it Ralph books. My nine year old has been reading them aloud to his younger brother, which is my favorite thing to see in the world! We really enjoyed reading “One Sweet Race”. It is about the characters in the movie, only they are little. The pictures are adorable and were illustrated by one of the artists who worked on the movie. It features the video-game world of Sugar Rush, and the film’s heroine, Vanellope von Schweetz.
Wreck-It Ralph Read-Along Storybook and CD (Disney Wreck-It Ralph)
Age Range: 3 – 7 years
Another fun way to engage children in reading are books with CD’s. Younger children can follow along with pictures and older children will enjoy reading along with the CD. The Wreck it Ralph Storybook CD retelling of the movie with the voices of the movie characters. It is just as fun as watching the movie plus they will learn to read at the same time.
