Kid’s Book Review: Frog’s Bog

About the Book

This is the first book in a new illustrated series aimed at showing children the benefits of living in a caring, sharing world and will also be available from Graffeg in Welsh and as an eBook.

Through the rhyming story about Frog, who is is trying to find a place to relax,  readers will be introduced to many different types of waterways and the wildlife and other creatures who need to live near water.

It is a charming and educational story with  detailed full-colour illustrations in a soft pastel colour palette.

Book Review

My favourite part is when the fox soaks the frog and the frog says that he didn't really want a morning swim; it's really funny!

Mum says: The illustrations in this story are wonderful and fill an entire page. Gracie was really engaged by the pictures and they supported her comprehension. She enjoyed the predictability that every time frog was happy, something bad was about to happen.

We talked about the other animals not meaning to upset frog but Gracie still felt they should say sorry so was happy with the ending.
