LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Josh Gad, the actor who voices the character Olaf in “Frozen,” is doing his part to entertain children as they and their families practice social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Each night, Gad is reading children’s books to fans on Twitter – be they young or old.

The actor started on Friday, March 13 with the book “Olivia Goes to Venice.”

“Since we’re all stuck at home right now, I figured we would have a little fun together,” Gad said. “So, I’m going to see how this goes, but I decided I’m going to read to you and your children – or just you, depending on what you prefer. I’m not going to pass judgment right now, since the world is a little bit of a hot mess.”

Gad says he’s trying to provide at least 10 minutes of day care a night to families, to provide some levity during this unprecedented global event.

“I love you all. I’m hoping you’re all healthy and safe, wherever you are, and hopefully I will see you all very soon,” said Gad. “Take care."
