it was amazing

THE HOP is an enchanting story that touches on many themes in an absorbing, magical tale children will love. Tad, a young hopper (toad), is sent on a quest to save his home--and that of his fellow toads--from destruction. Taylor, a young girl, has a similar mission: to prevent the wild area beside her grandmother's house from being bulldozed. Although this book has an environmental theme, which makes is an ideal Earth Day story, it touches on many other themes as well. Among them are friendship, loss, sacrifice, commitment, a sense of community, and love. Tad and Taylor's parallel--and overlapping--stories give the reader many light-hearted moments to enjoy. And the wonderful illustrations add to the adventure.

This is an excellent book for boys, girls, parents, and teachers and offers many teachable moments. Highly recommended!
