Deep in the heart of Frogmore, South Carolina, at a pond on the local golf course, there lives a little frog who dreams of someday becoming a famous golfer. Although his family wishes he would study harder and be more practical, the little frog just can't give up his dream. Determined to be the best, he learns the rules of golf, makes his own clubs, and creates his own course made of lily pads. Soon, his golf skills earn him the name Putter Frog. With beautiful illustrations from Warner McGee, the artist behind Dora the Explorer(R) and SpongeBob SquarePants(R), The Legend of the Putter Frog's message of hard work and determination will resonate with readers of any age, proving that belief makes all things possible.

Great book for babies and kids up to 7 or 8. It's about respecting your parents and making your dreams happen. It is also about never giving up your dreams. The illustrations are stunning. The illustrator has also done some of the Dora The Explorer, Diego, Spongebob, and Disney books. Tried to by the book at putterfrog.com but does not work. Interesting story about how the author came about to write this book at that website.
