Actor Josh “Olaf the Snowman” Gad will be hosting a story reading session every night during the quarantines for children online.

The actor, who you’ll recognize from the Frozen series, Beauty and the Beast, and the upcoming Artemis Fowl adaptation, will read children’s books to families around the world via his Twitter page, @joshgad, for free, because he’s a total mensch.

So far, Gad has treated the planet with his readings of The Giving Tree, The Day the Crayons Quit, and Olivia Goes to Venice.
