The By Mouse and Frog Trifecta

I'm honored to celebrate Deborah Freedman's brilliant By Mouse and Frog with the Nerdy Book Club and Colby Sharp. 


"One thing that I love so much about Deborah’s work is that it feels alive. Her books feel 3D. I would almost say that reading a Freedman book feels like you are watching an animated movie, but that doesn’t fit. Her illustrations jump off the page more than I’ve ever seen a 3D film jump off of the screen." -Colby Sharp | Click here to read his full review. 



Dear Deborah, 

We scheduled today's trifecta on June 24, 2014. 

The big day is finally here! Are you excited to send your beautiful picture book out into the world on Tuesday? It has a guaranteed spot in every Best Books presentation I deliver this year, and it will always have a special place in my heart.


It isn't a secret you, Mouse, Frog, and I love books. In honor of Mouse and Frog's big day, I made a video featuring eighteen children's books that share a book birthday with By Mouse and Frog. I hope Mouse and Frog approve! :)

Congratulations! 

-John


P.S Thank you, in advance, for celebrating By Mouse and Frog's book birthday with my students.





I hope you visit your local independent bookshop on Tuesday. 



 You DO NOT want to miss Deborah Freedman's nerdy post. It will brighten your day! 



Borrow By Mouse and Frog from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
