They whip up a cake from scratch, and offer a special coupon for a day at the spa, right in their own kitchen! Kids and moms will love reading this sweet story aloud together for a fun way to celebrate Mother’s Day.
I always send books to my young nieces so holidays and special days and this is one I sent this year for Mother’s Day.
It’s very good and children will easily be able to relate to the story line and it is illustrated beautifully.
The Snow Queen” (Danish: Snedronningen) is an original fairy tale written by Hans Christian Andersen (1805–1875). The tale was first published 21 December 1844 in New Fairy Tales. First Volume. Second Collection. 1845. (Danish: Nye Eventyr. Første Bind. Anden Samling. 1845.) The story centers on the struggle between good and evil as experienced by Gerda and her friend, Kai.
The story is one of Andersen’s longest and most highly acclaimed stories. It is regularly included in selected tales and collections of his work and is frequently reprinted in illustrated storybook editions for children.
This was offered free in audio and was just a little over an hour long. It was the first time I’ve heard of it and supposedly the movie,Frozen, is adapted from it. I didn’t care for the story but I did like the movie.

Poor Duncan just wants to color. But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: We quit!
Beige is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown. Blue needs a break from coloring all that water, while Pink just wants to be used. Green has no complaints, but Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking to each other.
What is Duncan to do? Debut author Drew Daywalt and New York Timesbestseller Oliver Jeffers create a colorful solution in this playful, imaginative story that will have children laughing and playing with their crayons in a whole new way.
Although this is a fun book and little children won’t really know the difference but the ending left a lot hanging. What was their response to Duncan’s answer to their letters and what about Beige-he had no clothes and Blue was a mere stump of his former self. Were they happy with Duncan’s answer to the problem. Cute for the young child. illustrations were great.
