Book List: Disney"s Wonderful World of Reading

Scholastic (and previously Grolier?) carries a series of books called Disney's Wonderful World of Reading that I absolutely love! As the mother of a 3 year old, I am always on the look-out for great books that catch my son's interest... and these do! Every single one that I've been able to find has become an instant favorite. With the fun stories (not too long, but not too short either) and beautiful full color pages, these are great books that our whole family loves!

Now I will admit, that in order to get the brand new books, I believe you have to sign up for a book-of-the-month type club where they send you 3 books per month that you can send back, or pay about $4.00 plus shipping per book. BUT, I'm not willing to do that! Instead, I comb my local used book stores and Goodwill stores, where I typically find them for $0.75 - $0.99 each. The only problem I've run into is getting multiple copies of the same book (I am thinking of starting a Facebook Page to list my extra titles for sale, if I do, I'll post the link here).

In an effort to minimize my duplicates, I'm going to put as much information on here as I can, starting with this list: (All items in bold are ones that we have, those not in bold are the ones I am still looking for)

If I am missing any titles PLEASE leave a comment and let me know! I'd love to have a really complete list!! I copied this basic list from a WikiAnswers here... then added the titles that I've got that weren't on the Wiki list!

All BOLDED titles are ones that I own and have in my possession, titles that are not bold or are in red are those that I have not personally seen with my own eyes.

Please let me know if you believe any of these titles are in error, or if I am missing any (which I'm sure I am!) - your help will be greatly appreciated!!

Originally published on this blog 8/2010, As I update the list, I update the date to keep it near the top and easier to find.

Update 10/16/2012:  I have cross-referenced my list with two other very long Disney Wonderful World of Reading Lists, one being a site in the UK (will post links when I find it in my files) and one being a current publisher site.  The publisher's site only includes more recent books, while the UK site includes some I can't find pictures of.   I did remove some "suspect" titles from my list, one was an early reader book that was not part of Disney's books, and some others had variations of the names.

Update 10/2013: I was contacted by a very nice man named Michael, who was helping his Mother-In-Law get rid of some things... among them were some of these books!!  He gave me a great deal on 17 that I was missing, so now my collection is even better.  :)  Thanks Michael and family!!

Update 11/2/2013:  Added new books - Frozen, Monsters University, Planes, Tinker Bell: Secret of the Wings, Toy Story Toons, Trouble in Devil's Bayou

Update 12/2014:  Added a few new books that I've been able to find.

Wendi said...


Thanks for the new/missing titles!

As for your second comment, I can't verify one way or another about those titles. I can say that I don't have any of those mentioned, and that they are awfully similar to other titles. It could be that someone else read a title wrong or combined two books... I got most of the titles from a Wiki and then added those that I have... which are in bold.

:) Thanks for the updates!

Hello, Before finding your list, I was compiling my own list for the same purpose, as I collected them for our 4yo daughter. Your list helped me to fill out about a dozen that I was missing. The only ones that I found on other lists, but are not on your list are:
Cars: Back on Track (not sure if this is separate than "Cars"
Disney Fairies: The Fairy Without Wings

A few others had very similar names (as noted in other comments), some of which I think are likely just the same story mis-transcribed by someone.

I am curious - do you have any other collections of children's books as well? Aside from the fairly typical Dr. Seuss and other classics, we have been working on collecting up Serendipity Books, as well as collecting the 43 ValueTales books

There is 4 more books missing from this list.

Toy Story 3
Cars 2
Tinkerbell and the last adventure and Robin hood spins gold.

I have seen all these books in the Gallery's on these two sites.



I highly Recommend looking at these sites.

Hateleko said...

Also the ice age books on the list are not Disney wonderful world of reading because ice age is not made by Disney it is made by Blue sky studios.

One other thing is that the books Dumbo and Dumbo the flying elephant are the exact same story. i have both books at home.

You are missing a book titled "The Almost Missed Christmas" with Donald, Daisy, Huey, Louie and Dewey.

Tony said...

Hi. The list is a little innacurate... for example, there isn't one called 'the fairy wings' but there is one called 'the fairy without wings'. There wasn't a 'cinderella's busy day', nor 'duck tales webby saves the world' and others - see definitive list (compiled due to my extensive collection) at http://www.tonystrading.co.uk/galleries/disneybooks/wwor.htm

This site is selling a list of these books. I came across your site trying research my books. I have a lot of 30 of them that I am trying to put on CraigsList to sell.
