Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
A little frog experiences simple, fun adventures when her parents go away and she gets to stay with Grandma. A few sentences on each page describe what happens during the visit. The little frog is gently tucked into bed, then gets up early to play a "What's for breakfast" guessing game. After that, she and Grandma visit a yoga class, go swimming, identify different flowers with Grandma, play dress-up and more. The overall text lets listeners understand that they are safe and can have fun with a grandparent. This would be a good book to use to prepare children for such visits. Illustrations depicting the little frog and Grandma in their settings add humor to the cozy story. The book is well-sized for little hands, has thick pages that would stand up to wear, and the cover corners are gently rounded. It is from the "Super Sturdy Picture Book" series.

PreS

A young frog spends the day on his grandpa's farm. They ride the tractor together as they mow the lawn and hum a song. In the barn, they tidy up the tools. Their activities continue throughout the day, including a stop at a diner for grilled cheese sandwiches. When they return home, they sit on the couch and Grandpa makes up stories and takes Frog out to the barn to show him baby birds in a nest. This is a quiet story illustrated in deep pastel gouache. Although it portrays a very busy day and a warm, loving relationship, there is no beginning or ending, which might be unsatisfying to many children.-Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH
