    Like A Girl in Winter Frog in Winter is fine good even but not really going to be a favorite In both cases I have no specific criticism I just wasn't blown away or moved or anything This was cute and I liked the frog's Kermitty expressions

    Frog experiences significant difficulties in adjusting to his first winter in this third entry in Max Velthuijs' Frog series originally published in Dutch as Kikker in de kou Waking up one cold morning our ranine hero wanders out into the white landscape becoming ever distressed and disoriented His friends who are all better suited to this environment fail to grasp the depth of his trouble at first but having discovered him collapsed in the snow bring him home and nurse him back to healthLike the first two Frog books Frog in Love and Frog and the Birdsong this charming picture book explores an important issue in a non didactic way offering a gentle and reassuring take on a significant problem Sometimes we just don't listen to one another and through that omission we fail to grasp the gravity of a situation This latter is particularly true of children who may not understand all the dangers around them Frog In Winter sees Pig Duck and Hare making that mistake initially by failing to appreciate just how distressed Frog is when it comes to the cold weather but also sees them putting their error right and helping to come up with a solution to the problem With an engaging narrative and sweetly adorable illustrations Velthuijs' artwork has really been growing on me as I read through of his books this is a title I would recommend to young readers who have difficult adjusting to a particular season or who have been ill

    This poor frog He wakes up one morning to find winter has arrived in full Frozen water snow everwhere etc All his furry and feathered friends are loving the change but for Frog it is much too much cold The kids felt so bad for the frog in this book It was adorable The strength of friendship that this book shows is just wonderful The art is simple and they didn't seems to care for the way the frog was drawn Even going so far as to say Kermit the Lizard who lost his tail Another kid thought is was Gumby But otherwise it was highly enjoyed

    In this touching story Frog's friends fail to see how he is suffering in the cold winter until it's almost too late Fortunately Duck Pig and Hare are able to rally round and help him in timeI actually like the English translation better than the original Dutch because the translator choose to use the phrase bare frog instead of naked frog It just made it poignantRead it to an almost 3 year old who loved it

    Translated from Dutch by Anderson Press read up on Klaus Flugge he's fab this picturebook is steeped in humanity and has a philosophically humorous approach to life He is economic with his words and lets the pictures do the talking it's amazing how much expression comes from a single line

One morning Frog wakes up knowing that something had gone wrong with the world Everything is completely white and it is very cold outside Much too cold for Frog to take part in any of the fun that his friends are having with the ice Like A Girl in Winter Frog in Winter is fine good even but not really going to be a favorite In both cases I have no specific criticism I just wasn't blown away or moved or anything This was cute and I liked the frog's Kermitty expressions
