CALDECOTT WINNER 1956

Frog is looking for a wife, a lovely mouse down the lane. Their love affair is told in this traditional song.

I guess I just didn't know how much there was to this story! I thought the pictures were fun and appreciated the background information on the tale. I used my traditional review board (my kids) and they didn't seem to appreciate the story too much. I even sang the story to them, but their attention was minimal for a frog who loved a mouse. When they were bored, I lost my patience too. A few verses might survive at song-time, but I don't think the whole book will be read frequently.
