Breve biografia
Eve Bunting was born and educated in Northern Ireland. Her first book, The Two Giants, was published in 1972. Since that first book, Eve Bunting has gone on to write many, many more, ranging from picture books to novels for young adults.



{my thoughts} – This is a beginners chapter book.

In chapter one – Frog throws a party in the fall for him and his friends. This fall he invites someone new named Chameleon. This upsets some of his friends because they don’t want the party to change. Frog not wanting to leave anyone out invites him anyways. By the end of the party even one likes Chameleon and his special trick of blending in with things around him.

In chapter two – Frog dances in his free time because it makes him happy. When he discovers his friends are watching him, it makes him shy and embarrassed. Eventually he learns that his dancing helps to make his friends happy also. Soon he and his friends start to dance together.

In chapter three – Frog gets caught by a little girl. The little girl tells him that she needs to kiss him and he will become a prince. He then tells her all the things that will make turning him into a prince boring and her a princess boring. Soon they both decide to be friends and she goes on her way.

Thanksgiving is best when shared with friends. As Mr. Moose sets out chairs for Mr. & Mrs. Goat, Rabbit, Sheep, and Porcupine, Mrs. Moose reflects that it would be nice to have a real turkey for Thanksgiving. Mr. Moose sets out immediately to find one. With the help of his friends, Mr. Moose finally spots Turkey down by the river. Alarmed, Turkey tries to make his escape, but alas, he is too fat. As Mr. Moose marches Turkey back to the house, Turkey knows he is doomed. He's in for a surprise though when Mrs. Moose sets her eyes on him.

The Bottom Line: This seasonal tale if perfect for a holiday story time. With a surprise twist ending, this endearing picture book celebrates friendship. Illustrated in full-color watercolors in a pleasing autumnal palette, this picture book is a classic. Enthusiastically recommended holiday reading for families with little ones ages 4 - 7.

While this story might get a different reaction today under current border conditions, these stories are true.

They happen every day across America though I’ve personally never seen a child do this.

I imagine this book will make some people mad and some people sad and some people frustrated.
