Childrens - Green Wilma

Green Wilma by Tedd Arnold
Wilma starts out waking up in bed, Green! Going to breakfast as a green frog, wanting to eat flies, hopping to the school bus, Green Wilma goes through her day at school only to hop after a fly. Finally she catches that fly, and lands in Miller’s Pond, really waking up.

My kids love this book, especially the part about it really being a frog dreaming of being a girl and not a girl dreaming of being a frog - basically! The pictures lend a lot to the story, from waking in the bed to hopping through the lunchroom after that fly all the way to landing in the Pond. There is also a bit of a rhyming cadence to the story that the kids like to hear. A fun way to spend some time with the kids.
