Disney Frozen: The Christmas Party by Andrea Posner-Sanchez

Title: Disney Frozen: The Christmas Party
Author: Andrea Posner-Sanchez
Genre: Picture Book, Fantasy
Reading Level: Ages 4-6

In The Christmas Party, the characters from Disney's Frozen are getting ready for a Christmas party. As a Step 2 reader, the book is designed for readers that recognize familiar words and sound out new words with help. It does a good job of featuring simple sentences and basic vocabulary; but the plot is a little too simplified.

The Christmas Party can be a fun book to encourage Frozen fans to read, especially visual learners that may enjoy the detailed and action filled illustrations. However, since the plot is somewhat disjointed including not even featuring the actual party, the book really misses out on becoming a fun holiday book for reading together for entertainment. The punch out ornaments can be fun for decorating, though, and those do somewhat make up for the poor plot in terms of value.
