City Dog, Country Frog

City Dog, Country Frog

By Mo Willems and Jon J. Muth

Hyperion Books for Children, 2010. 1 vol. (unpaged). Picture book


In the springtime, Country Frog meets City Dog and shows him how to play frog games. In the summer, City Dog teaches Country Frog to play dog games. In the fall, Country Frog is too tired to play so instead they just remember. In the winter, City Dog can't find Country Frog. In the springtime, City Dog is waiting sadly for Country Frog when Country Chipmunk shows up


AH! I don't like sad books! And even though this captures the truth of life--that sometimes people leave or die or whatever and then you have to learn to recover from it--it still made me plenty sad. It's a sweet story of friendship, and the pictures are beautiful...but I'm still upset that it's a sad book :(

4.5 stars. Clean read.
