Frozen’s Olaf reading bedtime stories every night on Twitter

Josh Gad reading bedtime stories is the nightly routine we never knew we needed.

The world is in turmoil at the moment, but if there’s one thing we can take solace in it’s the soothing dulcet tones of Josh Gad reading children’s bedtime stories.

Parents (and big kids) everywhere are rejoicing at the news that Josh has decided to head up his own nightly bedtime stories club on Twitter. Probably better known as Olaf to fans of the hit Disney movie Frozen, Josh is trying to lighten the mood the best way he knows how.

And for the first time in forever, bedtime doesn’t seem so bad anymore.

The current coronavirus pandemic means that many families across the globe are housebound, leading to bored kids in desperate need of entertainment and with one of the most well recognisable voices in the industry, Josh is a master entertainer.

The whole thing started on March 13th when Josh tweeted:

“Thinking about LIVE reading at night for all of you who have kids out there or are just weird and want to hear a grown man read and are stuck at home. What say you?”

Receiving an overwhelmingly positive response, Josh followed up on March 14th by saying: “Done. Gather your kids. Will start in 10 minutes.”

And he’s been going strong ever since. So far, he’s covered stories such as Olivia Goes to Venice, The Day The Crayons Quit, The Giving Tree and one of our personal favourites The Gruffalo to name but a few.

Safe to say he’s been playing a blinder.

He’s been taking to Twitter at 7:30pm Eastern Time – which at 11:30pm Irish time may be a tad late for little ears, so bookmark and save for the next day.

We can hardly wait to see what tonight’s story will be.
