    Description & More Details

    When a frog questions why he is blue and not green like the other frogs, his friends try to make him see how special being blue is. He comes to understand that he is blue because he is blue and that’s enough of an answer. This is a sweet story about identity and self-acceptance, one that children can apply to varying situations they may face. Includes a “Note to Parents and Caregivers” written by Gayle Pitman, PhD.
