Josh Gad Reading Kids’ Books Is Exactly What We Need Right Now

WarnerMedia Winter TCA 2020 – Green Room

Josh Gad, Jewish dad and the voice of Frozen‘s iconic snowmen, Olaf, is really doing his part to help parents in this time of coronavirus-related need.

The actor has started an amazing daily Twitter book club, #GadBookClub, where he reads a children’s book aloud every evening.

Gad, who is currently juggling homeschooling his two daughters, Ava and Isabella — alongside, you know, everything else — first read a book for the organization Save the Children, started by Amy Adams and Jennifer Garner, that helps feed and teach kids across the country during the coronavirus outbreak.

Here is Gad reading The Giving Tree:

Save the Children’s #SaveWithStories is a star-studded effort: Gal Gadot and Natalie Portman are just some of the many other Hollywood icons who read books for the organization.

Gad, however, decided to make this read-aloud a daily event, and it’s truly uplifting during these dark times. As a mom who is already sick of reading the same kid’s book over and over again after what seems like 100 days of social distancing (has it really not yet been a week?!), I’m super grateful for the break.

And since Gad is a professional actor — I mean, he’s Olaf, after all — his dynamic reading and special voices are sure to captivate your little ones.

So sit back, relax, get a drink or a few minutes of zen and let your kids watch this master read some quality children’s literature.
