Willems, Mo I’m a Frog 53 pgs. Random House Books for Young Readers, 2013. $14.99 Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.
Gerald is pretty worried, why? Piggie has turned into a frog! How could this happen. Finally Piggie talks to him about Pretend. Now that the air has been cleared, Piggie wants Gerald to pretend to be a frog too. But Gerald is having none of that! Will he give in and pretend to be a frog, of does he have a better idea?
Is it cliché to always rate Mo Willems books as essential? Because I am a willing to be called corrupt. This book is a must have to add to your library collection! Not only because the author is wildly popular with students of all ages, but because this book is funny, silly, smart, and has a big heart. I have been able to add many of his books into various lessons, so they are useful and much loved.
