The Lonely Frog by Jane Finch is the story of a pink frog who sits on a slimy green log all day long and is lonely and sad. He has only the river for company. The pink frog yearns for a mate and he has started to hate the silence and loneliness around him. He meets a young green frog damsel, but she is so beautiful that he knows his chances are not that great. Will he propose and live happily ever after?

The story is charming and adorable. The illustrations are interesting and bring the scenes and the characters alive, giving a good pace and movement to the story. Written in rhyming verses, the story is lyrical and has a good rhythm. It's an excellent bedtime storybook and can also be used for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. The ending with the little green frogs with pink spots is charming and cute.

This simple story speaks about the importance of having a companion in our lives and shows how the green frog brings meaning into the pink frog's life. Books with messages, concepts, and colorful illustrations will definitely fascinate young readers and this book is one of them. Kids will fall in love with the pink frog and his companion, the beautiful green frog, and the little green frogs with pink spots.
