Things had settled down after Freeda and Samson got married and Freeda made some room on the lily pad for Samson and his son Jack to move in. They were a happy large family living together and they were also adjusting to each other's ways of living and doing things. But there wasn't enough space to move around and play. The lily pad was good for three but five was too much. Freeda and Samson knew they had to do something, and they decided to move to a new, larger lily pad. There were not enough lily pads in Frogelot for sale and so they fell in love with a nice lily pad in the neighboring town of Port Frogafly. Would they be happy in Port Frogafly and would the three tadpoles make new friends in the place?

Freeda the Frog is on the Move (Mom's Choice Award Winner) by Nadine Haruni tackles the topic of moving towns and homes and all the changes that come with moving. It captures the emotions and feelings of the tadpoles when they have to move from their familiar hometown to another town. Many children will be able to connect with their feelings, and finally realize that change is not scary. The illustrations, like the previous books in the series, are colorful and bright and breathe life into the story and the characters.

This is a good book for one's personal collection as it teaches children new concepts and how to deal with them in a good way. Tutors and educators can use it in classrooms and school libraries for interactive sessions because of the discussion questions and fun exercises at the end of the story.
