In this second adventure of the Itsy Bitsy Franny Frog series, our feisty young heroine unexpectedly meets another spirited little frog who also happens to jump,
swim, and perch on lily pads and who even lives in Franny's pond. But this
is a frog who also happens to be quite different, and for a while this
confuses Franny quite a bit. After a while, though, Franny comes to
realize that it's okay to be different. Friends can come in all colors and
sizes. Friends can be funny or serious, musical or athletic, quiet or
outgoing. And these differences need to be celebrated, because it's the
differences that make each of us so special.
The author's aim for this Adventure of Itsy Bitsy Franny Frog is to help
kids understand how to connect with others and cultivate happiness. It's a
story about the differences that children perceive and wonder about:
differences in appearance - short, chubby, tall, thin - variations in ability, cultural differences. Children will delight in this beautiful, fast-moving story, while adults will appreciate Franny's message of acceptance, individuality and racial harmony.
