It has very simple sentences to go along with the beautiful and colorful drawings. Example:
Page One: Princess Elsa and Princess Anna are sisters.
Page Two: Elsa has a secret. She has magic powers. She can create ice.
This on a two-page spread that shows little Elsa with sparkly magic flying above her hands, little Anna sliding/jumping on the mounds of snow, and the snowman (Olaf) that Elsa created in the large ballroom.
It's a shorter version, so it skips things from the movie. For example, the parents don't take Anna to the trolls. The extent of Anna's lonely time in the great empty palace is shortened. Anna's meeting with Prince Hans is one page. But you don't mind - all of the main points of the story are there and the images are beautiful.
My 3.5-year-old daughter loves the movie Frozen and enjoys this book as well, despite the simple sentences. She is not reading yet, but is able to identify letters and this book is something we use to practice that skill.
The one downside is that it doesn't seem to be put together very well. After about a week of constantly looking at it the pages started falling out and the cover separated from the spine. It has been taped back together, but for something that is clearly targeted at a younger audience should be reinforced a little more.
I thought the overall story was a little weak. Choppy sentences, and words that Step 2 readers may not know. Our solution is to read the books with the girls, to help with the words they don't know. They're so thrilled to be reading a Frozen book that they don't care how hard it is, or whether they've read it a dozen times already.
We'll certainly look for more Frozen books in the future. They're a hit with every little girl we know.
It is a pretty basic book with simplified vocabulary. Most kindergarten to 1st grade readers should have few problems reading it. Nothing too mind blowing, any kid that enjoyed the movie will more than likely enjoy reading this as well.
