Frog and Hare
by Max Velthuijs
Age Range: Under_5
Hare and Frog spend the day together. First, Hare tries to paint a portrait of Frog but Frog gets tired and fidgety and won’t stand still. Then they try painting the ceiling but that too doesn’t quite work out. Even doing some gardening ends with Frog getting cross. In the end though, they find the perfect recreational solution – something that they both enjoy.
Frog and his friend Hare are introduced to very young children in this series of delightful board books by author and illustrator Max Velthuijs. The Frog books have become contemporary classics and the delightful amphibian in his stripy shorts has acquired an international reputation. The perceptive and beautiful illustrations make these stories popular with children and are ideal for reading aloud.
