The illustrations are gorgeous and I loved the way the viewpoint of the story flipped between the two sisters. May 24, Emily rated it liked it Shelves: Cute Frozen picture book.
Dec 28, Jane rated it it was amazing Shelves: This version of Frozen is so much better than the film. It's all about Anna and Elsa without the underwhelming plot and half-baked side characters. View 1 comment. Jun 03, Abby rated it it was amazing.
I loved it! It was adorable, a perfect little edition to the movie. But not only that, it showed that differences are good and we should strive to be ourselves. Also - the pictures were gorgeous.: Jan 11, Tara rated it it was amazing Shelves: I loved this picture book. Picked it up and read it very quickly. It was so sweet, I nearly cried.

Hello, friends! Our book today is Frozen: And w This review was originally written for The Baby Bookworm. And while not explicitly mentioning the events that caused Elsa to initially withdraw, the story then explores the other reason the sisters grew apart — they were very different. While Elsa was organized, academic, prim and reserved, Anna preferred to be free-spirited, spontaneous, and independent.
Often, the girls would wonder what life would be like if they had a sister more like them. The art is as lovely and animated as one would expect from a Disney book, and translates the 3D characters of Frozen into picture book form perfectly.
The length is great, the dueling narrative was interesting, and JJ and I both enjoyed it. Be sure to check out The Baby Bookworm for more reviews! May 25, Lara rated it it was amazing Shelves: Yes, parents are probably Frozen-ed out, but this is still a good one.
Good message and lovely illustrations. I liked it both as an adult, and as a sister. My own sister and I are opposites in a lot of ways, so it's always a warm fuzzy with stories like this. For a storytime book, it's certainly not a bad addition. The kids know the characters already, but this one focuses more on the sisterhood side of things than the story, brings something a little new in.
Would be a great one for a storytime Yes, parents are probably Frozen-ed out, but this is still a good one. Would be a great one for a storytime on family especially brothers and sisters.
Extra fun would be having two readers or puppets? I don't belong to the Frozen craze, but, the book is cute and great for small children.
It's written in rhyme and it teaches kids to love their siblings regardless of they differences in character. It does not follow the story or structure of the movie, but focuses in the relationship of the sisters. The the illustrations of Britney Lee, visual development artist for Disney movies, are super cute, colourful and have this vintage-y spirit to them that give them tons of character.
Nov 18, Braelyn rated it really liked it. This is about two princesses, Ana and Elsa, from the movie Frozen. Ana wishes to be more like Elsa throughout the story, while Elsa wishes to be more like Ana.
Both sisters have lines during the story, which could be used to present a play in class. In the end of the story, the sisters realize they are happy being who they are and to have a sister that is not exactly the same as themselves.
Jun 06, Amelia rated it liked it Shelves: Has anyone missed Frozen mania? My family certainly hasn't. This is my youngest niece during her fifth birthday party.
If she sees anything remotely related to Frozen she's like and if anyone asks who likes Frozen the most she's like You may notice her brother in the top right like "Why am I here?? Case in point: A Sister More Like Me. One of the things I personally love about Frozen is that it's a move away from the traditio Has anyone missed Frozen mania? One of the things I personally love about Frozen is that it's a move away from the traditional Disney Princess stories which don't always have the most positive of messages.
I love that, rather than being mad for, say, Snow White where the heroine essentially wanders around being terribly naive and nearly dying until a prince saves her, or Sleeping Beauty, where the heroine is the epitome of the passive damsel in distress, girls now have these positive heroines to admire. Frozen isn't about sitting around waiting for a handsome prince and true love's kiss with someone you don't even know or 2D characters with no personality, but about girls taking control, being themselves and rescuing each other with a little help from some friends.
I love this. Can you tell my dad spoon fed me Girls to the Rescue 1 et al? I digress. One of the strongest themes in Frozen is friendship and love between sisters and that is what this book is about. I've got to be honest and say that it largely rehashes the early part of the film, in which we witness the sisters' initial relationship and then Elsa's withdrawal.
It doesn't go back over major plot points, though, but focuses purely on how Elsa and Anna's relationship develops over the course of their story and shows them coming back together, accepting each other's differences and embracing their love for each other.
And all this with the beautiful illustrations you see in the film. Then one day I was so dazzled when I saw what you could be. And I wondered You showed me that you loved me, and I suddenly felt free - and truly glad I didn't have a sister more like me. Isn't that sweet?
I can't in all fairness give A Sister More Like Me four stars as I'm not sure it is particularly unique, but I wouldn't doubt that any child who is into Frozen will love it. Aug 19, Amy Rae rated it really liked it Shelves: The rare example of a movie tie-in storybook that actually adds something to the movie experience. The Junior Novelization don't do much more than regurgitate the plot points of the film, A Sister More Like Me provides a little more insight to the characters.
We never learn in the film, for instance, that Elsa enjoys mathematics!
The illustrations are really lovely, too, a sort of throwback to the work of Mary Blair. If you The rare example of a movie tie-in storybook that actually adds something to the movie experience. If you have Frozen fanatics to read to, this is the book to pick. Mar 19, Kai Van rated it liked it Shelves: I don't actually care for Frozen, but this book is cute. It's pretty much the exact story as the film, but without any of the extra plot points that weren't terribly important, imo. The problem with that, though, is that occasionally the words don't actually stick to that rule so it can be confusing.
Highly recommended to any child that loves Frozen. And I'm counting this in my reading challenge cause I did totally read it. But I did!! Feb 19, Dimity rated it it was ok Shelves: My 3 year old loves this book. I do not.
The pictures are great but I think the set-up where both sisters present in the first person but with different fonts too confusing for young kids. Another major quibble is that the author doesn't even bother to stick to the hokey set-up as there are multiple pages where the type is white, not the pink and purple that is supposed to differentiate between the sisters.
I'm not sure my daughter even understands what's going on and we've read it at least 10 t My 3 year old loves this book. I'm not sure my daughter even understands what's going on and we've read it at least 10 times, but the glitter on the cover and illustrations keep her hooked.
I found the similar book based on ''Brave'', One Perfect Day , to be much better. It also features wonderful illustrations, but has a simpler and more enjoyable story. Check out this review and more on my blog!
I'm a humungous Disney fan - I know way too many songs by heart, and Beauty and the Beast will always be my favourite film of all time - but I have to admit to being one of those bitter people who wasn't all that impressed with Frozen. The art's stunning, but personally I don't think the music's all that great, it doesn't feel like Disney music to me, and the story is full of plotholes that I'm not going to bother getting into now.
If that's the case, Jes Check out this review and more on my blog! If that's the case, Jess, then why on earth are you reviewing a Frozen children's picture book?
Well, reader, I have four nieces, two of whom are the ripe old ages of seven and four. This means they're the ideal age to be swept up in the Frozen frenzy, which means I've now had to listen to 'Let It Go' so many times in the car that I twitch whenever I hear it on the radio. Earlier this year, the younger of those two nieces became a big sister to a little sister, and when I came across this book I couldn't resist picking it up for her for Christmas.
She's a wonderful big sister, she loves her little sister to bits and she's always eager to help out, and I wanted to get her a little something that she can read, but that she and her little sister can also read together in a few years' time. Despite not being a Frozen fanatic, I have to admit that this book is gorgeous.
Too many people dismiss children's fiction, and in particular picture books like these, but so much effort goes into producing beautiful children's books, and this one is no exception. It's told entirely in rhyme, making it a lot of fun to read aloud which is perfect for bedtime, and both Elsa and Anna are given the chance to have their say, with alternating fonts so smaller children will always be able to figure out who's saying what.
What I love most about this little book, however, are Brittney Lee's stunning illustrations. I love the colours she uses - blues, purples and pinks - and how there isn't a single page devoid of some sort of colour or illustration. It's just a very beautiful book. So whether you know a child who would love this, have a child you'd like to read this with, or you just happen to be or know someone who likes Disney art, this book is very cute and would make for a lovely gift under the Christmas tree!
Sep 11, Nick rated it really liked it Shelves: This delightful picture book is a spin-off from Frozen, a part of the story as told by both sisters. Later in the book it is very clear who is speaking, but early in the book there are a couple of places where younger children might get confused, unless they're familiar with the film.
Still, it's about how sisters can appreciate each other's differences, and love those differences for what they are.
That's a good lesson for kids, but not told in a teachy, preachy way. The artwork is very much like This delightful picture book is a spin-off from Frozen, a part of the story as told by both sisters. The artwork is very much like that in the film, so kids who know the animated version will see this as an extension.
Six months after Ben finished the illustrations, we had Once Upon a Parsnip in hand. It was very exciting to open that first box of books! I had published a total of 20 books through traditional publishers, but this one felt different. For one thing, I loved acting as art director for the project.
I pretty much let Ben do what he wanted to with the art, but I had a few suggestions about the relationship between the text and the illustrations in places, and he took them to heart. Later, I worked with the graphic designer at our publisher, Mascot Books, until we achieved the vision I had in my mind.
I saw the art direction as another expression of my creativity, and I am so, so pleased with the look, color and movement of the text on the page and how it integrates with the artwork. I also learned that I love the collaborative process. It was such a pleasure working with Kevin on the manuscript, with Ben on the illustrations and with the staff at Mascot Books on the editing and graphic design.
I was very pleased when Kevin, who teaches English Language Learners in an elementary school, wrote a short easy reader about our three-way collaboration.

I want to talk a bit more about the artwork. She had worked on 'Frozen', and it shows - shows what an awesome companion 'A Sister More Like Me' is to the highest-grossing animated film of all time.
The cover in particular is attention-grabbing, with the smiling Anna hanging upside-down and Elsa looking up a little distance away with both love and pain. This symbolises the division in their personalities and their relationship, with one sister wanting to understand the other and their common wish for closeness if not for one's "curse". Their contrasting colour schemes and character designs make this more apparent. I also like how Anna is just hanging in the air like magic, while Elsa is shown to be much more grounded; funny considering that she's the one with icy powers.
In terms of story, 'A Sister More Like Me' is a nice representation of how two siblings wish the other could be more similar to themselves, so that they'll feel less lonely. Anna wishes for a sister who is also a friend as a youngest sibling myself, I could relate to this, especially when the older sibling suddenly stops playing with and seeing the younger one: a very real part of growing up.
Elsa may look like she prefers isolation with her secret, but perhaps deep down she wishes for a sister with a gift like hers, so that she'll not be alone in the world and would less likely hurt a friend with her powers. But there is an important lesson taught to children here: That what you already have might be the best thing you could ever wish for. Change is scary, especially when it happens in the family.
However it can be a good thing, like a learning curve in understanding how other people feel and act.
Anna's and Elsa's differences are what will make them love each other all the better, for in one sister's eyes the other is interesting and special in her own way.
