Feels like being wrapped in a big hug!

Froggy Fun, by Treva Jean Edwardson and illustrated by Carolina Seth, is the heartwarming tale of two frogs who live in the fanciful land of Fernleaf Forest.  This rhyming picture book, illustrated with wonderfully engaging and expressive characters, is a delightful story full of warmth and charm.  Franny, who is Freddy's biggest fan, does her best to encourage her friend to play his autoharp for the others in Fernleaf Forest.  Freddy however, is too shy and only shares his musical talent with her.   When Franny and Freddy become separated during a game of hide-and-seek, Freddy fears he may never find his dear friend Franny ever again.  Later, when the two are reunited, Freddy is so elated that he plays a joyful tune in celebration.   All the woodland creatures in Fernleaf Forest, including the flowers, join along in the happy song as their hearts swell with joy.

Beautifully and reverently told, Edwardson has penned a story rooted in love and steeped in devotion in this lyrical book. 

Froggy Fun is  also available in an audio format which may be downloaded with a coupon code once the book has been purchased.  The author, in her enchanting audio version of this book, is simply fabulous.  While participating in the audio version of this book, one can't help but feel as though they've been wrapped in a big hug.
