Beauty and The Beast is a classic fairy tale originally it was a story written by Charles Perrault. “Once upon a time there was a very rich man who lived with his three daughters. The two older daughters laughed at anyone who did not dress as well as they did. If the two of them were not resting at home, they were out shopping for as many fine dresses and hats as they could carry home.
The youngest daughter, Beauty, loved to read. “Your nose is always in a book,” her two older sisters said. They laughed. “No one will want you! Look at your hair. You look like a servant girl!” Beauty did not know why they were so mean. But she said nothing.” As the story unfolds and the family hit highs and lows Beauty will shine and share with the world that beauty is always more than just skin deep.
