Counting On Friends

This beautifully illustrated book uses counting and rhyme to tell a story about friends. Frog, a small creature with a big heart, learns the true meaning of friendship when he spends a few happy hours with his pals. Frog sits by himself on a log in the pond, lonely for some company. One by one, his friends join him for an afternoon of fun. Then, one by one, they leave as the day draws to an end. Although Frog is alone again, he is happy because he knows that good friends are always nearby.
