Disney holiday books from Parragon – Coco and Frozen Olaf

Disclosure: I’m a Parragon VIP Book Blogger and received these books free. Opinions shared are mine.

The best Christmas gifts are those that keep the kids interested for longer than a few minutes.  You know what I mean! My son still remembers the Christmas 2 years ago when his mini-drone helicopter stayed in the air for about 6 seconds, then crashed to the ground. We could never figure out how to keep the tiny propeller blades in, so he never played with it again. By contrast, my children always enjoyed artistic toys.  A pack of stickers and a new notepad could entertain them for hours!  They still love getting new coloring materials, sketch books, and how-to draw books. Parragon has a great assortment of activity books, and even books that appeal to the new Disney Pixar Coco fans!  [Read more…]
