Josh Gad, the voice of Olaf in the movie series Frozen, hoped on Twitter on Friday to help give kids some comfort and the parents a well-needed break as families are self-isolating in the mis=dst of the Coronavirus pandemic. He read Ian Falconer’s 2010 children’s book Olivia Goes to Venice, part of his Olivia series, which is written for kids aged 3 to 7.
The father of two said in a Twitter Live Video, “Since we’re all stuck at home right now I figured we would have a little fun together, so I’m going to see how this goes, but I decided I’m gonna read to your and your children or just you, depending on what you prefer. I’m not gonna pass judgment right now since the world is a little bit of a hot mess. But I thought tonight, we would start with one of my favorite books about one of my favorite places that none of us can really go to, a little place called Venice, in Italy.”
