Itsy Bitsy Franny Frog stars in a new series of books about her life. This tiny, feisty creature has a modest dream – to be able to float and sunbath on a lily pad in her very own lily pond, just like her family and friends. Franny, however, doesn’t think she can do it because she thinks she can’t swim or jump. One day, she decides to hitch a ride to the lily pad, but when something unexpected happens, she must rally her courage to follow her dream.

“The Adventures of Itsy Bitsy Franny Frog,” geared toward children 4 to 8 years old, aims to inspire youngsters to try new things and believe in themselves. The fast-moving tale and Richa Kinra’s colorful illustrations share equal billing in this inspiring story that portrays the wonders of the natural world. Children will delight in Franny Frog’s adventure and the charming illustrations that capture the action, while adults will enjoy the message of hope and encouragement the author provides.
