    One thought on “Little Frog and the Scary Autumn Thing (Little Frog and the Four Seasons)”

    1. Little Frog is about to experience her first autumn. When things start changing from various shades of green to reds, oranges, and yellows, she gets scared. Her parents encourage her to go into the woods and experience the colors up close, which just makes her more nervous.As someone who prefers the greens spring and summer to the reds and yellows of fall, I was hoping to like this book more. But I don't think that the artist made the best choices in which parts of the narration he chose to illu [...]

    2. This would be a good read aloud for early elementary. Cute story about overcoming fear and the changing of the seasons.

    3. I loved the illustrations, as did the kids. The kids said, "5 stars for the pictures!"Jane Yolen writes beautifully; she has a lovely lyrical style. The book is on the long side, so it's better suited for older preschoolers and elementary students. This story comes with a lesson - "most things that are scary are only just new." It's a topic for discussion.This book can also be used to discuss the Fall season.

    4. A beautifully illustrated story about tackling something new. In this case, the "new" is scary, but mostly innocuous. I found myself thinking as I read about all the "new" things one can do, or the new situations one can be in, that are inherently dangerous. But to remain positive, this book should be a helpful look at when being open to new experiences ends with a positive result.

    5. A sweet tale about a little frog experiences fall for the first time and is scared. With the help of his parents he becomes brave and finds the music in the fall sounds and what's familiar to him no longer feeling afraid. More about bravery than science but sweet non the less.

    6. So boring and repetitive. I know Jane Yolen is a legend, but I can't figure out why this one was published. Sigh.

    7. Little Frog was afraid of the change of autumn, and any colours that weren't green. She had to find a way to be brave just as Mama Frog told her.

    8. Beautiful watercolors help to tell the story.There are still a lot of words but it is very interesting.Illustrated by Ellen Shi

    9. This book is perfect for any child who is scared to try something new. It is the perfect blend between a fairy story and a story with purpose. The illustrations are wonderful. Children will enjoy the bright colors of the books as well as enjoy the adventure little frog goes one. As a teacher this book can be used at various times, autumn, feeling, colors, just to name a few. It is a wonderful story for families to enjoy together.

    10. This review was originally written for The Baby Bookworm. Visit us for new picture books reviews daily!Hello, friends! Today’s book is Little Frog And The Scary Autumn Thing, written by Jane Yolen and illustrated by Ellen Shi, a wonderful tale that uses the change of seasons as a metaphor for how to handle changes in our lives.Little Frog loves the color green. It’s her very favorite color, and all her favorite things are green: her family, her lily pad, even her own self. So when the trees [...]

    11. Little Frog is terrified of autumn because of the unfamiliar colors around her. Since this is her first autumn, she has never seen the red, yellow, orange, gold, and purple colors of fall. However, her mother and father show her that autumn is nothing to be afraid of and she just has to get used to new things as she grows up. I love how the story has a moral lesson, but it doesn't feel like it's being beaten into the reader's mind. The illustrations were delightful and really showed off the autu [...]

    12. What happens: Little frog is new to the world. She's only ever known summer and greenness. The strangeness of fall is scary and unfamiliar. We follow her on her journey as she learns to accept change and experiences new things.The good: Little frog is adorable. She's hesitant without being too annoyingly irrational. Little Frog is likely someone that apprehensive kiddos will feel that they can relate to. The story itself is pretty interesting. It's fun to watch Little Frog experience new things [...]

    13. Little Frog has only known green in his short little life. And now everything was turning yellow, red, and orange and worst of all purple! Things were scratchy and scary. But Mama Frog told him things were only scary because they were new. And Papa Frog told him new things could be fun. So when Little Frog tries the new yellow, red, and orange, and yes even the purple he finds that they are not so scary after all and yes even fun!

    14. Liked it better than I thought I would. (When I first saw the cover I intensely and irrationally disliked it; yep, I will admit that I judged a book by its cover!) Poor color purple (especially), and orange, and red, and gold, they just get shafted in this, but the message comes through that new things aren't necessarily scary, just new. It's just a bit of a long book and it takes a while to get there.

    15. "To Little Frog, red and gold were scary. They were the colors of hot sun and cold blood."Little Frog is wearing a bright red scarf.Other than that small nitpick, it was a decent story. The recurring theme of "most things that are scary are just new" is a good one to share with little kids, especially the ones who are balking at a new experience that will (probably) be pleasurable.

    16. This book could help children deal with new things. It's also about frogs and autumn.The cover invites you to open up this book to see what's inside-in my opinion it may be the best part of the book.

    17. A little frog is brave as she faces her fears (colors and sounds). I love how this book can apply to young children with disabilities. The fear of colors and sound is real, it's sensory. Not a quick read but a good one.

    18. Beautiful illustrations and great story about facing your fears. The story is a bit too long for the preschool set.

    19. Little Frog learns to face her fears by exploring the world around her pond. She learns that being brave and moving forward is much better than cowering in fear.

    20. Little Frog isn't sure about all the new colors that show up with fall, but spending a day with Papa Frog in the woods might just change her mind on a few of them.

    21. New things scare Little Frog and he is sure he will not like autumn. Mama and Papa Frog both help her see that getting to know new things makes them less scary.
