MY BOOK REVIEW:

This is a beautifully written simplistic story geared to help in the understanding and in the dynamics that all relationships start with love.  The wording is carefully chosen not to rise above the intellect of young readers, and is accompanied by illustrations that enhance the tone of the story without going overboard for younger minds.  The plot develops gently and moves through each transition smoothly and with ease.

The characters are realistic, even the frog’s ;), and they also develop and grow at the right pace to keep the reader engaged.

This is one of the better books of this nature that is more educational in its simplistic form than many academic books that try to address the same issues.

The basic lesson… one we all should remember, love happens.

I give this book:

4_5_StarRating
