About the Book

Itsy Bitsy Franny Frog is a tiny frog with a tiny dream.  She imagines herself floating and sunbathing on a lily pad in her lily pond. The problem is, her dream may never come true because she has lost faith in her natural talents.  (Don't frogs jump?  Don't frogs swim?) And without these, how can she achieve her dream? But Franny is a spunky little frog, and with a few creative tries, a little bit of persistence, a helping hand, and the courage to rise above her fears, she learns that to be good at something one has to have self-belief, positive thinking, and determination. In this story, the first of a series for children ages 4-8, the author identifies with and worries about the many kids out there who are held back and vulnerable due to self-limiting thoughts, worries, and anxiety.  She knows that kids like this may never realize their potential. So the book is written with gentle encouragement, to teach kids that so much is possible if they can only believe and if they will only just try.
