Frog and his friends were preparing for Thanksgiving, one of their favorite holidays. “It’s a time of love. And sharing,” Frog explained to all of them. They were using a stump as a table and they even “thanked the tree’s roots for letting them use it.” They began to place food on the stump as everyone began to gather ‘round. There’s was a squirrel sitting on a stone, a pair of robins, peered down from a branch, a possum leaned forward to offer up her share, and even crickets came to the celebration. Very hungry, extra-super-hungry Hippo showed up late with a napkin already tucked under his chin. “I had Thanksgiving dinner at Little Zoo,” he explained, but was ready for more!
There was plenty more, even for hungry Hippo, and the table was set with many different foods. There were “flies, mealworms, caterpillars, ants,” and even “kale and wild mushroom salad with watercress dressing.” Mmmmmmm! There was something for everyone and everyone was welcome, even little Hedgie the hedgehog. All was well until Hedgie spotted Hippo. Frog’s eyes grew wide and those quills went high and Hedgie curled up into “a spiky ball.” Everyone noticed Hedgie and soon there would be trouble, or so they thought. “Little Possums,” Possum cried out, “Come to Mama. Do not go near the hedgehog!” This was supposed to be the best Thanksgiving ever, but what could frog do with everyone running away?
This trio of humorous holiday tales will delight Frog and Friends fans. Naturally Frog had to reassure everyone that Hedgie was quite harmless while all the while reassuring Hedgie that no one would hurt him. These short tales are a great addition to holiday books, especially with the addition of a New Year’s Eve tale. There are an abundance of Thanksgiving and Christmas tales, but not as many to start off a new year. Newly independent and confident readers can tackle this book alone or with a minimum of assistance with more difficult words such as “somersaults.” The artwork, combined with the exciting, humorous tales with Frog and his friends, has high appeal that young readers are definitely drawn to.
