Frog Meets a Bog Beast by Linda Button

Frog loves living in the bog.  There's lots of food, it's nice and damp and it's safe.  Or is it?

Troubador Publishing and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It's been published so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

This is a cute book that has a simple story.  Frog meets Hog.  He tells Hog how bad he tastes and what eating him will do to Hog's stomach right off.  He wants him to understand he's not food.  Hog asks just what he is and tells him he's a roaming hog, going where there's food.  At the end of their conversation the Hog vanishes.  Was he a bog beast?

The back part of this book is filled with facts about frogs, bogs, and more.  The grasslands and swamps house lots of animals and are an important part of our environment.  This book will help your young understand that.
