Frog in Love by Max Velthuijs
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

The very first picture book to feature Max Velthuijs’ loveable amphibian. Frog is feeling most unwell. He keeps getting hot, then cold, and something inside his chest is going 'thump, thump'. Hare says it means he's in love! But who with? And how can he show his devotion?

Synopsis

Frog in Love by Max Velthuijs

Frog is feeling most unwell. He keeps getting hot, then cold, and something inside his chest is going "thump, thump". Hare says it means he's in love, but who with? How can he show his devotion - perhaps by performing the biggest jump ever?

Reviews

Disarmingly sweet with just enough eccentricity. Some sage advice. Teach Primary Magazine Few picture book heroes are more immediately endearing than Frog. Tender and touching story of a search for love. Irish Times, Robert Dunbar Hurray! Just in time for Valentines Day. If you didn't get hold of a copy the first time around do so now, it's just great. Red Reading Hub Blog It's hard to beat Max Velthuijs

-- Wendy Cooling Literacy & Learning This delightful story is perfect. Books for Keeps
