Lilliana and the Frogs
Lilliana and the Frogs is a cute story about a little girl and her frogs. Lilliana loves to catch Chorus frogs, but she soon realizes they can escape. They jump everywhere and are very loud! They run all the way back to the pond. Lilliana realizes that the frogs need their own space.
I found out that this book was based on the author’s childhood, and a pond called the Lily Pond. The pond is now a protected site for frogs. I thought Lilliana’s character was very adventurous and fun-loving.
The pictures really helped me see inside Lilliana’s world. The frogs were kind of funny because they wanted to get out and go back home.
This story was written well, but the author could’ve made up for the unoriginal storyline with some fun adjectives or more sensory details.
I think the moral of the story is that reptiles are living beings just like us and need their own habitat, and routine. I feel the illustrations were unique and modern. I thought the illustrator could have added more colorful details, but there was a lot of green which I guess made sense because the story was about nature and frogs.
I think this is definitely a book for younger kids ages three to six.
