Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 4
Genre: holiday picture book
What did you like about the book? This is the classic Night Before Christmas story but with a Frozen twist. Olaf wonders why there are stockings hanging up- are they wet? He sees Svens flying in the sky with Kristoff in a sleigh- how can Svens fly? He meets Santa and figures out that it was not Kristoff in the sleigh. He sees him eat his cookies, leave goodies and go back up the chimney.
The pictures are so sweet with Olaf mixed in with the classic Christmas story. This is a definite to any Christmas book collection!
Anything you didn’t like about it? nothing
To whom would you recommend this book? I would recommend this to kids who love Christmas, kids who love Frozen and also for kids who love to have the book read to them- this edition includes a CD which features Olaf reading the story! Some read-a-likes are any other Frozen story, also and of the classic tellings of “Night Before Christmas.”
Who should buy this book? elementary schools and public libraries
Where would you shelve it? juvenile holiday books
Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? no
