The rain outside had stopped and Trudy Matoody was happy knowing she could go outside and walk down to the pond. She hoped she would find a friend who loved to sing, just like her. She went to the front door and started singing. Her song attracted animals from the forest and they listened to her song till she finished. Bully Bullfrog wished he could sing like Trudy Matoody and when he sang the color green came out from his throat. The tiny ladybug on the tree tried to let out a hum and it had red tones in it. Jessica Ladybug also became Trudy's friend and now she had two friends. Will Trudy find more friends?

Trudy Matoody by Marcia Ashford is an adorable storybook that teaches children colors, animal recognition, friendship, and rhythmic repetition in an entertaining way for young readers. Sergio Drumond's illustrations are as colorful and charming as the characters in the book and make it captivating for readers. The book is a fun and entertaining way to introduce children to colors and animals and help them experience friendship. The story has magic and radiance and it will make a good book for parents to use for bedtime storytelling, and for tutors to use in classrooms and school libraries for their read-aloud and storytelling sessions. The book is educational and informative, and I like the author's novel approach to a common topic. Marcia Ashford makes learning interesting and engaging.
