Before and After the Thaw: Books for Fans of Frozen

Do you have a child who’s obsessed with the movie Frozen and is so excited to see Anna and Elsa back in action in Frozen 2? So do I. In fact, I have two. My younger daughter won’t even allow me to sing her other songs. When we snuggle up together before bedtime, if I start to sing something else, she insists “No! ‘Let It Go!’”

On a daily basis, my girls go leaping around the house in their Anna and Elsa costumes, using their magical powers to freeze everything in sight while singing the soundtrack at the top of their lungs.

If you’re in the same boat, these books will appeal to kids who love all things Anna and Elsa, but who might also enjoy learning about some other special young ladies, too. These books are good for kids who are learning to read on their own or for a parent to read aloud to a younger child.
