A Review of "Frog and Friends: Best Summer Ever" in Booklist Online
Booklist Online (Apr 2012)
Like the other Frog and Friends titles in the I Am a Reader! series, this installment features three small-scale adventures. In the first tale, Frog and Little Brown Bat compare and contrast their traits and characteristics, declaring that they “do not have to be the same to be friends.” In the second story, Frog goes on vacation, and one by one, his friends invite themselves along. In the final tale, Starman teaches Frog and his friends about the stars and lets each one pick a star of their own. Although Bunting’s gentle lessons may not have the comedic punch of the previous titles, Masse’s bright cartoon illustrations of the affable woodland creatures provide plenty of verve.
