My reaction to this book is that it is a good book for children in kindergarten to read. It was good for the author to tell the kids that something bad can be turned into something good and to have a good attitude about things in life. The one thing I didn't like was that Flora threw her frog costume in the tree because frogs are fat and ugly and she didn't want to be a frog in the play and therefore lied to her mom which isn't something that kids should learn to do, other than that it was a goo [...]
I liked this book. I thought it taught a good lesson about why it is so important to express your feelings about things. I didn't like the fact that she lied to her mom and threw the frog in the tree. But, also that goes along with the lesson at hand. She threw the frog in the tree and felt bad, then lied to her mom.

Sometimes children do things that are wrong, i [...]

There are no consequences for her actions. I think that younger children could get [...]
I would use this book in the classroom to illustrate to children why we shouldn't lie to each other and although you do not like something, you can make it what you want by simply using your imagination. This is a good book for first grade children to illustrate the message of giving it a try first.
