Frozen-AppFrozen: Storybook Deluxe
Disney brings their film adaptation of Frozen to life in this digital book, pairing animated clips from the feature film alongside a nicely abridged version of the movie’s plot. This app is a real treat that includes much more than a book, providing lots of entertainment for young readers in the form of games, puzzles and coloring pages based on the hit movie, released this year (2013).

My child, like most, loves Disney films, so he was delighted to see a few animated scenes from the movie interspersed throughout the book. This is one of the ways this storybook stands out from many of the other movie-themed book apps available. This title also has a nice choice of settings, letting you set the book up for auto-play (Follow Along) or a more interactive “Read & Explore” mode. You can also record your own narration, although the professional voice over is top notch.

As a digital title, this book is solidly made with lots of simple settings like a page-guide, home button and ways to ‘keep in touch’ with Disney. Overall this is a transmedia title sure to please any young reader and a great way to relive the movie. This would even be a great way to share the ‘Frozen’ story with kids who’ve never seen the film.
