There was very little about the book on Amazon. It would be nice if a little more was entered about the book and author. The little paperback has 26 pages (unnumbered). It would be suitable to those learning to read or the little ones you read to. It has a lesson to be learned about boasting. The illustrator made some colorful and bright pictures to go with the story. The story, like most of Ms. Toole's is in rhyme. This is nice, since it keeps the little one's attention. The little frog that had a lesson to learn finds out that no one likes him since he has bragged too much. He learns to listen instead of croaking and discovers a valuable lesson. This is a easy to read book that will help teach the little ones that not everything is always about them but to think of others too.
This is a great little book for your child's bookshelf to be read and re-read.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Anne Toole, and Outskirts Press, in exchange for my unbiased review. No other compensation took place.
I would give this book 4 STARS.
