Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
This is a delightful tale of a grandfather and his grandson, depicted as two lively and likeable frogs, as they spend the day together working on the farm and having some fun. Their day begins with a ride on the tractor doing farm work and hints from Grandpa about an adventure after they get their work done. First, though, they have to tidy up the barn and build a stone wall. Between those jobs, Grandpa tries to make a whistle from grass; his grandson cheerfully recognizes the sound as a screech. When the rock work is complete, they get lunch at the diner and then set off on the promised adventure. They take a boat ride to a little island they can explore. There, they look for buried treasure and build an elf house. Before they head for home, Grandpa scratches a note to the birds in the sand on the beach. The grandson believes the birds will read the note when they fly around the rowboat as the frogs make their way home. As a perfect ending to the day, Grandpa makes up a story for his grandson, who realizes the tale is about their shared adventure. This book is from the "Super Sturdy Picture Book" series. Pages are thick to stand up to wear, and the illustrations add humor to the simple text in a way that very young children can understand. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
