I received a copy of the Disney Frozen Storybooks for review. All opinions are my own.
It's no secret that we are fans of Disney's Academy Award winning animated film Frozen. I don't think a day has gone by where the Attic Baby hasn't belted out "Let it Go" or asked me if I "want to build a snowman." We've used Frozen stickers as potty training rewards on a daily basis. And we've listened to the Frozen soundtrack a bazillion times at least in the car and at home. She is quite literally obsessed with Frozen.
Needless to say, my three year old was over the moon excited about the new Frozen books from Disney Publishing. We received the hardcover book A Sister More Like Me, Step into Reading Level 2: A Tale of Two Sisters, Frozen: the Junior Novelization, and the Frozen Read-Along Storybook and CD.
Disney Frozen A Sister More Like Me is a beautiful hardcover with 32 pages illustrating the relationship between sisters Anna and Elsa by one of the artists who worked on the film. The pictures are gorgeous and the storyline is a bit different from the movie, which we both enjoyed. I'm sure when our second little girl arrives, that this will become very meaningful to The Attic Baby. I'm excited to see what kind of relationship she will have with her sister!
It is available at Amazon.com currently for $8.83.
Frozen: A Tale of Two Sisters retells the story of Anna & Elsa in a 32 page Level 2 Reader for ages 4-6 who are just learning to read on their own. While the Attic Baby isn't old enough to read this by herself, it's not too lengthy and is a great read-aloud for bedtime or story time with simple sentence structure.
It is available at Amazon.com currently for $2.70.
Frozen Junior Novelization is a paperback
New York Times and USA TODAY best-selling novel that retells the story for ages 8-12 and includes eight pages of full-color scenes from the movie. She likes to look at the pictures and pretend she's reading a "big kid" book. I'm sure we'll be enjoying this when she's a little bit older too.
This is available at Amazon.com currently for $3.66.
The Attic Baby's favorite out of all 4 books is the Frozen
Read-Along Storybook & CD. Recommended for ages 3-5, your child can listen to the voices from the movie along with fun sound effects as they look at the illustrations. I remember using these when I was little (my very first was E.T. but it was on tape and it played on a red tape recorder). It's great for teaching listening skills and your preschooler will be so proud and excited when they master turning the page at the chime sound!
It is available at Amazon.com for $4.16.
All of these are reasonably priced and available in e-format (except the Storybook & CD). If
your child can't get enough of Disney's Frozen like mine, these
storybooks will provide not only entertainment, but will also promote a
love of reading (and maybe a break for mom & dad from watching the
movie over and over again). Definitely a must-have for your home library!
