My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books.
YOU CAN'T MARRY A MAN YOU JUST MET
I have four granddaughters all under the age of three. I am pretty sure that they would not sit still for this, but children over eight probably would. I have seen the movie and it is tons better. The reader was fairly lack luster and I would think a book read for kids, needs a little extra humph.
The basic story is a great one, with lessons learned without lectures. The characters feel real. The movie tugs at your heart strings and the snowman is funny. In the book the main characters tug at your heart strings, but the snowman is annoying. The snowman says and does the same things he does in the movie, but without the animation, he is like an extra annoyance, that does not seem to add to the story at all.

We listened to this as a family. We all loved it! In fact, as is usually the case, it was better than the movie! The only Improvment would have been to add in a couple of the best songs from the movie.
The narrator did not display the emotion invoked by the text. More excitement and inflection would have made it better. She did have a pleasant voice to listen to, though.
My 3 and 5 year old girls enjoy this story, and request it often. I would like to listen to it more if the narrator had matched the feelings in the book. The dramatic dialogue
were read in the same voice and tempo as the slower paced scenes.
Badly written, horribly...and monotonously...narrated. Does not manage to capture so much as a hint of the enchantment contained in the movie.

I listened to this book with my daughter who had seen the movie several times. I might have been the only person in the world who read this book without having seen the movie. About what I expected. I wasn't surprised by the few twists and turns although I have to honestly say I didn't automatically anticipate them. Listening with my daughter made the exercise worthwhile.
