I Don’t Want to Be a Frog by Dev Petty - ADVISABLE

Petty, Dev I Don’t Want to Be a Frog, illustrated by Mike Boldt. PICTUREBOOK. Random House, 2015. $16.99. Content: G. 

A young frog argues with his dad.  He doesn’t want to be a frog; he wants to be a rabbit or a pig or an owl. But when a big wolf tells him what he likes to gobble up, the little frog is glad he is what he is.  

Told through dialogue, with large colorful bold pictures, this story about being happy with who you are is silly and fun.  A good read aloud, it can spark discussions about differences and similarities.
