Some days I get junk mail. Other days, I get beautiful books to review that make me want to jump up and down. This week, I got both and let me tell you, book day is way more fun! We have some amazing Moana books to enjoy and I can’t wait to show you!
If you have kids, you’ve probably started to hear about Walt Disney Animation Studios’ new film, Moana, set to hit theaters this Thanksgiving. I am really excited about this one for a few reasons, but mainly because it looks like a fun adventure with a great backdrop. The ocean is my happy place and Moana is set in the beautifully animated Pacific Islands.
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ new feature film “Moana” is about an adventurous teenager who, with help from demigod Maui, sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and save her people.
As a parent, I also know that I need to do a little research before taking my little ones to the theater. That’s why I love the variety of Moana books we can enjoy and read before the film!
I have to say these books are truly beautiful. The quality is wonderful and the variety of styles is great for many different ages. If you’re looking for a little background on the story of Moana before seeing the movie, check them out!

The Art of Coloring: Moana
This is a lay-flat book with some graphic designs from the movie as well as a few character pages. This is a great book for older kids who love to color in detail or even adults. No judging.
Moana and the Ocean
This is a beautiful hardcover picture book describing Moana from the ocean’s perspective. I love the artistic deviation from the film and it’s so colorful! Each page has about one sentence, so this one is great for early readers.
Moana Read-Along Storybook and CD
These simple paperback books are a huge hit around here. We love to keep the CDs in the van and listen to the stories over and over again. It’s a great way to get errands done and entertain everyone at the same time!
The Story of Moana: A Tale of Courage and Adventure
Another beautiful book, this novel is geared toward the middle-grades. It includes original content along with the story of the film. If you are looking for chapter books, this is the one!
