Synopsis

While Katy and her family spend a snowy Christmas away at Grandma's, a cold and clever little frog jumps at the chance to move into their warm, empty home. Unfortunately, so does every other four-legged forest dweller in the area. With the perfect holiday vacation house overrun with guests, chaos quickly erupts until the group finds a peaceful solution in this holiday tale of tails. What begins as a break from the wintry woolly land transforms into an annual holiday tradition of kindness and generosity. The Frog at the Window is a Christmas tale with a message for every season!

Summary

The Frog at the Window isn't just a book for children, it's also for the young at heart. A cold little frog takes his chance to have a warm home for the winter when the occupants of the house go spend Christmas at their grandfather's house, as they do every year. Soon other woodland creatures start to invade the house and everything becomes a little chaotic- that's until some rules are put in place.The book is more about the animals than the humans and the frog plays the role of the main character well .

Evaluation

This is a wonderful, heartwarming book which brings back a little of the magic that is Christmas. Everything works well in the book-the characters, the events and the illustrations.The technical layout is beautiful-from the colorful and vibrant illustrations, to the way the book is bound. It's a book that calls out to be read.The only negative might be the cursive font and the size of the font that can make it hard for certain eyes to read.. This book will leave a smile in your heart when you're finished. It can become a part of the yearly Christmas tradition-to be read around a warm fire while sipping cocoa and roasting marshmallows.It also makes a wonderful bedtime story book. It's certainly a story that can be re-read many times and still leave a bit of magic in it's wake.

Recommendation

I highly recommend this book-it was a quick, delightful read.The book is aimed at children, but those that are young at heart will find it equally wonderful.As a cursive font is used, older children that can read cursive won't have a problem to read by themselves, but for younger aged kids, a parent or grandparent would make a good storyteller for this book. It is a good gift for a child, as a coffee table book or for anyone that longs to recapture the magic of Christmas.

Iā€™m an avid book reader, but also a writer that runs my own writing page on Facebook. I have decided to branch out in my writing and doing book reviews would really suit me to a t. I would enjoy giving my opinion on books and for it to be published.
