I teamed up with a great friend, Sammy Dellinger, to publish ONE FROG. TWO FROGS. THREE FROGS, FOUR.  I'm extremely excited about this book because it showcases Sam's awesome talent.

I wrote this book a long time ago and it's based on a true event that happened when my son, 26, was 3. When I talked to Sam about bringing the text to life, she was all in. Together we finally did it and I couldn't be more proud. 

Here's the skinny: 

“One frog. Two frogs. Three frogs. Four. Tree frogs. Tree frogs. I want more.”

This delightfully illustrated tale tells the story of Sam, who counts down the days until the next grocery store trip. Sam can’t wait to buy plastic tree frogs from the grocery store bubblegum machine and add them to his colorful collection. But after waiting all week, Sam sees something that makes him opt to give his quarters to charity instead.

One frog. Two frogs. Three frogs. Four. I love tree frogs, but I’ll wait to get more.” 

This great read-aloud book is also perfect for the beginner reader, offering a subtle life lesson about kindness and thinking of others in a fun, unobtrusive manner. This perfect addition to home and classroom library also boosts color and counting confidence.
