Lovely story about being flexible enough to try something else that you might be better at. Be willing to try new things. Keep your options open. Loved the activities at the end of the book.

Transition to race track was a little abrupt and caught me off guard; I thought maybe I'd gotten bumped into a different book at first. But once I "shifted" my perspective, it was fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars A feel good children's book. February 8, 2013
By Nicole
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good children's book. The story is about not giving up on your dreams even when things might not turn out the way you expected. I like how clear that message is in this book. There is a list of different activities and educational lesson ideas after the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun but different February 3, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book follows Jimmy the Frog from his birth in the pond to his dream of being a race car driver and his disappointment when he can't race because of his size. My five year old daughter liked Jimmy the Racing Frog but it was also a little long to hold her attention. We read it in two sessions. More than the story, she seemed to really enjoy the bright and vivid illustrations. The artwork is really well done. From my point of view it was interesting and at the same time strange to have a book start off as an education story that transforms into a fantasy story. The transition aspect probably could've been done better because it seemed forced. It's a cute concept and I like the idea, but it just seemed to be lacking something. I like the lesson of the story which is not to give up and if you fail, change direction and refocus and try again. This is good for kids to learn. Also I really like the Activities section at the end of the book and thought it was a really neat feature for kids to get them thinking and interacting with the book they just read and to give them a creative spark of their own. A really neat feature.

I'm glad I got it! Maybe it just shows better on my Kindle Fire than on another reader, but the pictures are great; they're clear, colorful and plentiful. There are 1 or 2 pics on every single page of the story, except the last one, which is less than a paragraph. I have the font set on medium size Verdana. It's only 18 pages, so it's certainly short enough to hold a fairly young childs attention, especially if they are interested in learning the progression of a frog from an egg. There's nothing not to love!

More About the Author

I began writing stories as a means of staying connected to my young children while I was deployed with the US Army. One of my greatest rewards is hearing my children get excited about something I've written. It helps me feel closer to them. I look forward to the quiet moments before they fall asleep when we share our favorite stories from the day's events or the book shelf sitting against the wall.

We currently live in St. George, Utah.
