How to convince your kids to not turn the other into a frog

So one of your sons wants to turn his brother into a frog? We've all been there. I remember many times I would have loved to have changed my brother into a frog, but it just never happened. No matter how much you try to convince your son that it's just not possible, you might want to check out MY BROTHER THE FROG by Kevin McNamee.

In this humorous picture book, a boy wants to change his brother into a frog, but he learns a few things in the process. Things like... his brother will get mad, his parents will get mad, he'll be really good at sports, and more. And when he tries to change him back, it may not be that easy. Now his brother's a duck who hogs the bathtub then he's a chicken who pecks at his toes when he's asleep. There are so many scenarios that he just never thought of and he finally realizes that maybe his brother isn't so bad just the way he is.

MY BROTHER THE FROG is a humorous read that dives into a little sibling rivalry. As I said before, we've all probably imagined turning our brother or sister into a frog, but MY BROTHER THE FROG takes it one step further and really examines what would happen if it actually came to fruition. Kids will get a kick out of the illustrations and parents will enjoy the hidden message that a sibling can actually be your best friend. (well, sometimes)
