Frog’s Rainy-Day Story and Other Fables by Michael James Dowling & illustrated by Sarah Buell Dowling

My thoughts:  Beautifully illustrated by Sarah Buell Dowling, this morals teaching children's book has a charming cast of characters.

The stories are well written by Michael James Dowling in an easy to follow story-telling mode. True, some larger words might not be known by young readers, but the glossary at the back will help with that.

Each story has a "Wisdom of the World" and a "Wisdom of the Word" (God's Word) page that can readily be used by parents to help point out the moral of that little story.

Care should be exercised in explaining that the "World's" thinking is often different from that of God's Word. These stories will help to explain the differences.

The stories and attitudes of the characters are quiet well done and I enjoyed the book.
