(Cackleberry Creek Series, Book 1)

Spring is here again at Cackleberry Creek and young Lulu is full of questions about everything! "When will I grow bigger? Why do cows eat grass? Why is the sky blue?" One thing Lulu knows for sure is, she isn't feeling very special or pretty today. She wishes she were a bird, a squirrel, a cat...anything but a green ole frog! With a little help from Mama and her pals, can she learn to love herself for being her? Through it all, Lulu learns that being special doesnt always mean being like someone else. In addition, maybe...just maybe, frogs can fly too!

Mother and daughter time is SO important and little girls esteem is delicate. This little story about loving yourself nails it. The frog in this book loves her mama so much and "the two of them spend time together before the day begins"... and that's Cherie's favorite time with me, morning when we get ready to go to school/work. She said, "Thats me and you mum!" We have kindle version and ordered paperback today, this is her new favorite book. (Jen and Cherie S. WV)

What a darling little toad/frog! The sister book to, There are no monsters at Cackleberry Creek. (we have both). A story about a young frog that doesn't believe in herself too much and comes out loving the way that she is, green and all. You couldn't ask for a better book about self esteem and confidence.

This is an exceptionally written book for children. It portrays the insecurities that many children often have through Lulu’s self-doubt early on in the story. However, it encourages the reader to be proud of the distinctive qualities that make him/her extraordinary. It teaches the reader to embrace his/her own strengths. Yet, the story promotes the reader to have an overall appreciation for all the unique traits that others possess as well. From a teacher’s perspective, the book would be great to use in an elementary classroom to boost self-esteem and introduce diversity. The book also has the perfect combination of practical, every day vocabulary paired with more challenging words that can be taught through context clues. When this book was read aloud to my own children, they greatly enjoyed it. It kept their interest to the end! They were actively engaged throughout the story by asking questions, making specific comments, laughing, and enjoying the colorful illustrations. It is a terrific read that my children and students request repeatedly!

I fell in love with this book when I first read it and was so excited to read it to my Grand Daughter. It is very well written and illustrated. We are looking forward to the other two books in this series.

Met this author at a book signing in Scott and she is a really charming lady. E-book is less pricey than soft copy. She sold one to us to us for HALF the price that's in stores and apologized about publisher jacking up price so high. Gave us posters, book markers, pencils and stickers. A cute story and I will buy the next two in series on E-book. She is actually from the south hills area and it's very nice to meet local authors, as we do try to support their endeavors. Thumbs up to this author, she is quite impressive. Jill B.
