Portions of this book are told in rhyme and it makes it really fun to read aloud. I like that the author used a variety of different animals to tell her story and that of the Goliath frog. The animal characters are compassionate and kind to one another and end up learning the lesson that everyone is not built the same way. I think this is an important lesson for children to learn, and the author does an exemplary job of showing rather than telling.
I am excited to add this to my children’s book collection and share it with my children. I would recommend this to anyone that has children in their life. I think this would be great for kids of all ages but specifically exciting for children in the 3 to 7 age groups.
