I'm a Frog

Author: Mo Willems

Year Published: 2013

Description: One in a series of books featuring friends Gerald and Piggie, this picture book humorously portrays a universally loved children's activity—dramatic play. When Piggie announces he is a frog one day, characteristically cautious elephant Gerald is confused, and even a little bit scared. His fears are assuaged when Piggie explains what it means to pretend. Within Piggie's explanation, Willems gives a (literal) wink to adults for their tendency to sometimes play-act as well, while emphasizing to children the importance of their imagination.
