The Frog That Lost His Croak is a children’s story by author Anne Toole that tells the tale of a very proud young frog with a very loud croak, who one day loses his croak after boasting and bragging to his friends. The little frog consults his father, who tells him to go find his mother, and she tells him the truth: he needs to croak less! She also tells him that it might take some time to understand what is happening to him, but that his croak will come back to him some day. The little frog ponders on this advice and heads out alone to his favorite log. There, he is mocked by his friends for not being able to croak anymore, and he begins to understand that bragging about his croak lost him his friends. In the end, the little frog figures out what is important, and he learns a valuable lesson.
Author Anne Toole has written a superb book for children that will be a family favorite and a tradition for years to come. The illustrations in The Frog That Lost His Croak are beautiful and complement the story very well as it progresses. The little frog is a delightful character who starts off loving the sound of his own croak so much that he does not take the time to hear anything else of importance around him. I read this story with a smile, and I recommend the book for young children as a bedtime story or any other time of the day. I loved it!
