Format: Hardcover
Leap Back Home to Me is a beautiful little book sure to tug at the heartstrings of all mothers. It's a great message for little kids that mothers try to instill in them every day: no matter how high you fly or how far you leap, I'll always be here. This chubby little frog leaps over beavers, only to leap back to mom who's waiting with paper and crayons. He leaps over mountains, rainbows and seas only to return to mom who's waiting with something yummy to eat. His trips get progressively farther away until the end when he travels to the farthest stars, only to find mom still waiting there for him when he returns. For any child facing some big first steps, this will be an excellent book to remind them that mom is always there.

The illustrations only add to the charm of this fun offering. Our little leaping frog is joyous and funny and kids will get a big kick out of seeing him fly across the sky like superman, and leap across the hilltop with a grin almost as wide as the page. These fun pictures are done in watercolors but are still vibrant and large enough to be enjoyed by a group. It also has a great read-aloud flow that makes it a perfect choice for story time or any young child's personal collection. Recommended.

It's a sweet story, great for Moms to read to their children, of any age. Or for teachers of young children.

Mama Frog encourages her Little Frog to take his first leaps away from home, and says she will always be there waiting for him. A sweet rhyming picture book for ages 2-5.

Being in split homes, my kids are gone two days every week, and five straight days every other week, and it's tough on me mostly. We read Leap Back Home to Me before they leave whether they'll be back that Friday or the next Monday. It gets emotional for me at the end, of course, because being away from your kids is never easy. But it's a great story of comfort, that even though they're gone, I'll still be here when they come back home!
