A Review of Flora the Frog Mar 23, 2001
This is a wonderful story about a little girl who was chosen to be a frog in her school play. The problem is that Flora does not want to be a frog because she believes frogs are fat and ugly. Flora's mom makes her a frog costume for the play, but Flora is not interested and throws the costume in a tree. Towards the end of the story, Flora finds a pond that has three frogs in it. The frogs are glistening with their silvery spangles and Flora realizes that frogs are not fat and ugly and decides she wants to sew spangles on her frog costume.
