This colorful collection was named an “honor book” in the 2006 Boston Globe—Horn Book Awards for Excellence in Children’s Literature:

One thing for sure
about a green frog
on a green lily pad
on a green day
in spring:
One hop
and her green
is gone.
See how she swims,
blue frog now
under blue water.
