Coco and Frozen

Oh yeah!  I know some nephews, nieces and grandkids that are going to love the new selection of kids’ books I just received from Parragon!

I am about to become a very popular uncle and grandpa!

 To make things even more exciting all five books are about Disney characters: one fan favorite and one new up-and-coming movie character.  First things first.

Kids love to color and use stickers.

In ‘Little Snowman Big Adventures’ everyone’s favorite wacky snowman: Olaf from Frozen, stars in his very own adventure complete with over 30 stickers and puzzles, coloring pages and a set of four crayons with a crayon keeper.

This colorful combination is sure to be a hit with kids.   

Beautifully illustrated, with clever puzzles and one whole page of full-color stickers, makes the entire package a winter wonderland of fun.

Speaking of sticker and coloring fun, ‘Coco Always Remembers’ and ‘Coco Friends Forever’ are two new fun-filled books based on the new Coco computer-animated film from Disney and Pixar.

Based on the Mexican celebration of ‘The Day Of The Dead’ the film finds Coco reunited with his deceased ancestors in the afterlife.

Far from a ‘dead’ story, the film is an exhilarating celebration of life, family love and devotion.

Coco Always Remembers is a fun coloring book with four crayons and a holder.

Kids can color the black and white inspired ‘Land Of The Dead’ pages and add a little color to bring them to life.

I especially love the design of the crayon holder with skull shape accented by red, blue, yellow and purple.

For even more coloring fun along with activities, puzzles and stickers Coco Friends Forever immediately grabs your attention with its gold accented color cover, four pages of colorful stickers, full-color Coco story where kids match the stickers to the story, intricate and detailed coloring pages and challenging activities.

There’s nothing ‘dead’ about this book!

The stunning silver cover accented by full-color illustration cover of ‘Coco Sing Your Song’ book is a real treasure.

Not only can kids sing Miguel’s songs they can also punch out their own skull masks, sketch, create a family tree, keep a journal, keep special notes and draw, draw, draw!

Now this is the kind of sketchbook I wish I had had when I was a kid!  What a wonderful way to stir a child’s imagination, organizational skills and writing and drawing talent.

Last, but certainly not least, is ‘Coco Mosaic Sticker By Numbers’.  This book is literally bursting with stickers and color. 

Of the four Coco books this is my favorite. 

Inside are colorful pieces of various mosaics. Kids use the pieces and match them up with the color illustrations inside. 

Once done they have wonderful mosaics worthy of putting on display and showing their friends and family.

Besides looking awesome the book is a great teaching tool for kids encouraging them to use their cognitive skills while they use the number pieces to match correctly where they go on what particular drawing.

Matching, counting and dexterity are all tested in a fun and exciting book that is guaranteed to keep kids’ attention while they play and learn.

All five of the books reviewed make for fun and exciting playtime and kids learn all sorts of skills without even realizing it.  Now that’s a great way to learn!
