“Carlson teaches lessons about positive thinking with humor as she shows Frog exuberant with the crowd (‘Throw a party’) and calmly spending time alone biking and practicing yoga. The bright color pictures show the animals daring to be different (wearing flashy socks, for example), and reaching out to make others happy, being the first ones to say hi to the new kid. Young children will recognize the simple scenarios and the full range of feelings.” —Booklist

The Horn Book Guide
