MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:

First a little back story about how I obtained this book.  My dear friends took me on a trip to Coeur d'Alene Idaho.  It was a beautiful and majestic place.  While staying in the home of my friends Aunt, I discovered that her daughter was an author.  Of course I was immediately interested.  I LOVE books.  Knowing the author is so much more fun.  Well, knowing who the Mother of the author was is so much fun :).  I happily purchased the book.  I am glad I did.

First off the illustrations are BEA U TI FUL!  The story is catchy.  I read it to my 10 yr old son, and he got a kick out of the frog.  He giggled in all the right places, and I laughed along with him.  Watching a child enjoy a book is pure bliss to me.

The story is funny, and very entertaining for children.  I think what they will enjoy most about this book is that it rhymes.  Which in my opinion makes it even funnier.  The pictures will draw you in with there vibrant colors.  

It's a fun story about a boy and his toad.  Pick this one up, you wont regret it.  It's so beautiful and fun to read :).

Source:  I bought this book for myself from the Authors mother!  I just wish I could have met the author myself also :).  I was not compensated in any way for this review.  These are my own PERSONAL thoughts on the book.

MY RATING:
