4/8/14: Frozen Storybook App and Books

Unless you have been living under a rock you have heard of Academy Award winning film Disney's Frozen.  It is the hottest movie right now and parents and children alike are listening to the Frozen Soundtrack on an infinite loop.  All Frozen products are so hard to find and I daily see pictures of Disney Stores with lines at opening to get Frozen products.  I previously reviewed some Disney Frozen Products, but now I wanted to share some books created by Disney Publishing Worldwide.  These would all be perfect for Easter Baskets. 
My daughter is having a Frozen theme for her birthday party this weekend and was so excited to receive these books.  Here she is reading Frozen: A Sister More Like Me.  It is a beautiful hard cover picture book.  It is an original story about Anna and Elsa.  It is beautifully illustrated and she really enjoyed reading it.
 She was reading it after gong to breakfast with the Easter Bunny and has her face painted like a bunny.  She loved this book and kept it in bed with her to read at night.
 Here it is.
 My personal favorite is the Frozen Read-Along Storybook and CD.  It is a USA TODAY best-selling novel.  It tells the story of Anna when she goes on her journey to find her sister Elsa.  I love the CD, this is so great for kids to hear the book being read and look at the words.  It is a great way to learn to read.  It even has the original voices from the movie.
The next book Frozen: A Tale of Two Sisters we had previously received through Scholastic at school.  Lauren's teacher gave them a book each for Valentine's Day and Lauren went right for this book.  In fact I saw this book flying off the shelf at the School Book Fair.  It is a great level 2 book for young readers ages 4-6.
Last but not least is Frozen: The Junior Novelization which is a New York Times and USA TODAY best-selling novel.  It is a great Chapter book and good for grades 3 on.  It retells the whole exciting story and features eight pages of full-color scenes from the movie!  My daughter really likes looking through this section.  
Plus there is the Frozen: Storybook Deluxe App.  It introduces young readers to Frozen.  Children and families can relive the epic adventure by flipping the device upside-down to hear the story from sisters Anna and Elsa's points of view, using "ice craft" tools that let kids create and build their own frozen scenes and crystal palaces, and watching video clips from the film itself.  It is super cute.
These are such great products for any Frozen enthusiast!
Disclosure:  I received these books and a code for the app in order to review it.  No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.
