The Randalls were all packed to leave. They planned to wake up early the next morning and hit the road. Katy wondered how they would reach her grandmother's home since it was snowing badly and it was hard to see. As she stood by the window and stared into the night, she saw a tiny green frog shivering on the lower right edge of her window. Katy was excited as she told her mother but when she got back to her window, the frog was not there anymore. As they left on their long vacation ride, the door to their empty house opened and the frog went inside. He thought the house was warmer than his muddy stream and it had lots of space. Let's read the story to find out who came into the house, the house rules the frog made to save his new home, how they celebrated Christmas together, and what happened when the Randall family got back home after Christmas.

The Frog at the Window: A Completely Wild Christmas Tale by Scott J. Langteau is a magical story set against the backdrop of the Christmas season and will take young readers on an enthralling adventure along with the frog and the other animals who walk into the Randalls' home during their absence. The story captures the spirit of Christmas and the acts of generosity and kindness that are usually associated with the season. Michaela Brannon makes the story enchanting with her wonderful illustrations and the spirit of the season is palpable to readers. The Frog at the Window is a perfect gift for families to give their children during Christmas because they will enjoy reading about the magical time the animals had in the house. The book is also good for storytelling and read-aloud sessions in homes and classrooms, especially during the holiday season.
