This children’s picture book has 18 color reproductions of original oil paintings. The 18 other pages tell the semi-fictional but plausible story having to do with an idea by Martin Fass and written and illustrated by Margot Fass. Froggy Family’s First Frolic (see facebook.com/frogbooks/) describes a night in the life of a Red Eyed Tree Frog (Agalychnis Callidryas) family. The new parents Fern and Reid take their offspring on their first outing, and the biggest adventure that follows involves Paddy. Paddy will be the hero of our next book, Froggy’s Dream. An epilogue contains a page of text regarding the habits of the Red Eyed Tree Frog. Frogs are adorable creatures that are very much like us (they have almost as many bones, and eat, sleep, reproduce and play) and deserve, like every living being, compassionate care and respect.
