Dear little frog, you are so timid and kind, and that’s why you are so adorable: Feeling rather odd, and distinctly uncomfortable, Frog isn’t sure just what the trouble is, until his friend Hare diagnoses the problem: After the first euphoria of this discovery, Frog sets out to discover just who he is love withand, that done, how he might woo her There is an understated humor to this story that I found immensely appealing: Frog’s enthusiasm, when Hare diagnoses his ‘condition,’ and then his search for an object for his affections, really had me chuckling.
Frog’s courtship of Duck was endearing – all the more so, given his shyness, when it came to actually declaring himself – and the conclusion of the tale, which highlights the fact that love can flourish across all kinds of difference of color, of specieswas most welcome.
The artwork, with its bright colors and simple composition, was very appealing. All in all, a lovely start to another froggie series – one better known in Europe, I suspect, than here in the states. The English translation of Kiker is verliefddone by Anthea Bell, was published in the USA the same year as the originaland then reprinted in velthuis miniature British velthuij in I have compared the two editions I own the miniature edition from Andersen Press, and took the Farrar Strauss Giroux edition out of my local libraryand found them to be almost identical.
The text was arranged somewhat differently on the page, in the miniature edition, due to space constraints, but there was only one zapo change in text, toward the end of the book. When Frog crashes to the ground, and Duck comes to his rescue, the full-sized edition reads: Supporting him carefully, she took him home with her.
She nursed him with tender loving care. Duck took him home with her and nursed him. Mar 12, Angela rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is a really sweet book that I came across on SBT2. I wanted to review it because I think it is gorgeous! This book is written by a Dutch author and tells the story of Frog who has velthuis funny feeling inside; his heart is beating faster than normal and he cant understand whats wrong with him.
He talks to his friends and Hare diagnoses him as being in love!

But who could he be in love with? Well it turns out he is in love with Duck. But when he tries to tell Duck how he feels he gets tongue eapo This is a really sweet book that I came across on SBT2. But when he tries to tell Duck how he feels he gets tongue tied and shy. Lots of people can relate to that! So instead of talking to her, Frog sends anonymous gifts to Duck and leaves presents on her door step. However he soon realises that this is getting him no where.
He tries to impress duck by jumping really high but then has a terrible fall. Luckily for Frog, Duck steps in to nurse him, and they finally get the opportunity to tell each other how they really feel! Other characters in the story think that things cant work velghuijs between Frog and Duck because he is green and she is white; a nice underlying message about how people of all appearances can and should be friends inter-racial relationships.
Frog and Duck live happily ever after, therefore proving these characters wrong. There are no human characters in this story and I love how the author uses animals to discuss the human emotion of love. I read this story to a year 1 class but it would also be suitable for Year 2 and reception class. It could be used as part of a circle time discussion on emotions and love, why people sometimes feel the way they do and what they can do to express these feelings.
The author presents a delicate, emotional issue in a really simple way, at a child’s level. This book is part of a a series of books about Frog. I loved this book! Aug 22, Meilina rated it it was amazing. Just got this from my friend. He actually wanted to give this book to my sons.
Frog in Love
Love knows no boundaries! I think I won’t read the story to my sons at this time being: Alle Kikker-boeken die we gelezen hebben zijn warm ontvangen! Een verhalend, literair prentenboek. Het verhaal sluit aan op de belevingswereld van kinderen verliefd zijn. Nov 25, Rachel rated it really liked it Shelves: In the book Frog In Love, Frog finds his heart beating faster and faster.
He told Rabbit, so Rabbit pulled out a book and read that when your heart starts beating faster and faster like that, it means you are in love.
Frog knew he was in love with the white Duck. He tried to break a world record of jumping the highest so that he could get her attention, and sure enough, he did get her attention.
This is a great book with a great plot. The characters help the story line move along at a good pace. The story has a clear ending and leaves nothing unclear to the reader.
The genre of this book is romance.
The format of the book is a picture book. The reading level for this book is lower elementary school students. I would cusnto this in my class to recommend for students reading on their cunto free time. This book would be good for any gender, race or socioeconomic class to read.

Frog discovers he is in love but can’t get the attention of Duck. His heroics don’t work but when he falls she takes care of him. Funny, heart felt and lovely.
The only distraction from the book was the very last line which was made it explicitly a moral tale the book would have worked velyhuijs it. But it was so delightful that I can overlook this. Sep 14, Greg Gormley rated it it was amazing.
The illustration style isn’t precious, which only makes it more appealing. Frog is such a pure soul.
