Frog vs Toad Storybook

Wow, where did July go? It’s been crazy hot here and no one is using their air-conditioning with the massive increase in electricity costs. We’re spending a lot of time in the shade enjoying some quiet time and reading. I also take my Chromebook with me and engage in a few online courses. There are also lots of opportunities to enter tons of giveaways… like the ones included in the Apple A Day giveaway hop. Scroll all the way down to enter a bunch of fun giveaways.

Frog Vs Toad

Growing up, I lived on the beach strip so I would spend most of my summer days playing in the water, building sand castles, and soaking up the sun. Gosh, if I could only go back! I also enjoyed leisure time reading some of my favorite stories. Summer offers a lot of downtime where kids can embrace reading. Having some fun titles will encourage kids to crack open a cover and get absorbed in the storyline. secret code: crocodile

Candlewick Press offers tons of enchanting titles for kids of all ages, like the Frog VS Toad storybook. I believe that most stories share a lesson, a moral, and create an emotional connection to the characters. That is the premise behind the Frog VS Toad story.

It all started with a humble little fly flittering across a grassy area. The tongue of the toad was on the fly and the tongue of a frog was also on the fly. The fly said “Ohhhhh, this is the worst day ever! I’m being eaten by two frogs!! “Frog is a frog and Toad is a toad. They are clearly totally different from each other.” How rude! Both the frog and the toad were offended by being called the opposite because clearly there is a HUGE difference between them. And then the insults started… and then the mud slinging!

Each shared how much better they were than the other and bragged about what qualities they accelerated in. They were being quite loud and rude until they met an alligator! Then they need each other to survive! The story has beautiful graphics and a humorous twist. Kids will be able to relate to the story and perhaps see some similarities in their own life.
