Once again author Glynis M. Belec has brought children a book they will not only love to read (or have read to them), they will learn a valuable lesson about life.
The pictures in this short, full-colour children's book, add to the story and will be sure to draw both child and parent in. As Homer the frog is focused on one thing only - catching flies - he loses sight of the dangers around him and the obstacles that might be in his way to catching breakfast.
Homer lands himself in trouble, quite literally over his head and children will learn valuable lessons from his mistakes. While the back of the cover shares that the lesson children will learn is to never give up, it will also teach them to be aware of their surroundings. Sometimes children can be so focused on a task while at play they inadvertently wander into danger. I had a strong-willed child who did that often when she was growing up and probably could have learned a lesson or two from this delightful little book. If you love to read to your children or grandchildren this would be a perfect book to cozy up to.
