City Dog, Country Frog by Mo Willems

A dog from the city makes friends with a country frog. Their difference of species doesn't stop these friends. Frog plays dog games and Dog plays frog games. Through the seasons, these two are fast friend. When Frog goes away for the winter and doesn't return, Dog isn't unhappy. He finds a new friend in the country--Chipmunk.

What I thought: A delightful book with charming illustrations. Dog & Frog's friendship is endearing. The book clearly shows that differences don't matter in friendship. The illustrations are lovely--soft yet vibrant. My favorite illustrations are Country Frog keeping City Dog dry and City Dog with a froggy smile.
