My daughter read this for her 4th grade biography report. It mostly covers his childhood. All the real important information about his career and Mickey Mouse are covered in the last chapter.
cameron age 9 read the book walt disney and it was like you did not want to put the book down.It was exciting and i would recommend this book to everybody.
This book was wonderful and an easy read, they only problem is that in the front cover it says some of the details were fictionalized and conversations were added, so throughout the whole story you dont know what is true or not. A very wonderful and heart warming tale, it was hard to put down. I encourage every Disney fan to read this and do more research to know more about one of America's best men.
I loved this book it told all about Walt Disney and gave me bunches of info. Elizabeth
