La Belle et La Bête (Beauty and the Beast)

I’d say that just about every American girl has a favorite Disney Princess. When I was little, I had two. The first one was Ariel from The Little Mermaid, and the other was Belle from Beauty and the Beast. This story takes place in rural France, and is about a young, intelligent, independent woman who has an urge for adventure. (Did I mention she’s French!?) I love Belle because she knows what she who to be. She wants to travel and see the world. She reads books and is very smart–she keeps this image despite the fact that her small French town finds it improper for a woman to read. Belle also does not settle for Gaston, her secret admirer, because she believes his behavior to be inappropriate and sexist. Belle sees the beauty in people that no one else sees, and she can stand well on her own. Belle in a sense, reminds me a lot of myself due to her independent personality, her wanderlust, her love for reading and learning, and her kind and moral character. (If only I could sing like her!)
