25 Forgotten Disney Read-Along Books With Records


When I was a kid, Disney Records with Read-Along books were on my list of most favorite things. I think my first was Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs, but my collection only just started there. It was a fun way to occupy my time and in my parent’s eyes, I was doing something educational as well. Those Walt Disney read along’s started back in the late 60s and were adaptations of some of the most popular Disney movies. I remember the sound of Tinkerbell’s chimes as the cue to turn the page. So when going outside was not an option due to weather or whatever other reasons there were, I was very happy entrenched in my “Wonderful World Of Disney”.

I actually remember having a mix of big LPs and 45’s…

Walt Disney Read-Along Book and Records were first released in 1965. Each book ran 24 pages and included a 7-inch record of a narrator who read the story.

The books were typically adaptations of popular Disney movies, cartoons, and sometimes titles based on non-Disney properties. The records included dialogue, sounds and songs from the movies or cartoons. But, the most memorable sound was Tinkerbell's chimes, the signal for the reader to turn the page. The records were produced until about 1986, when they were completely replaced by cassettes
