"This celebration of differences displays great respect for readers' intelligence and yields more with each reading. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Two shy kids discover the power of friendship in this charming picture book that celebrates being different. A boy likes to dress as a cat, but his best friend's dog objects. What will he dress as now? A giraffe? A fox? A shark? When his best friend, Camille, suggests a frog, they work together to make the frog costume...until Camille runs out of patience. So the boy makes a list of the pros and cons of being a frog: Pros: 1. My friend Camille gave me the idea 2. I'm less likely to be chased by a dog 3. Being in a frog costume makes me feel brave Cons: 1. Not everyone loves wearing a frog costume as much as me 2. If you start getting bossy about your frog costume then your friend will get up and leave 3. A frog is NOT a solitary creature so it is no fun for a frog if his friend gets up and leaves Luckily, he won't have to choose, because true friendship means accepting each other's differences: he can be himself and have his friend Camille.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Sue DegennaroPublisher: Simon & Schuster/Paula Wiseman BooksPublished: 08/30/2016ISBN: 9781481471305Pages: 40Weight: 1.05lbsSize: 11.30h x 9.30w x 0.50dReview Citations: Kirkus Reviews 05/15/2016Publishers Weekly 05/23/2016School Library Journal 07/01/2016 pg. 53Hornbook Guide to Children 01/01/2017 - Recommended, SatisfactoryAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 186834 / Pros & Cons of Being a FrogReading Level: 2.7 / Interest Level: Lower Grade / Point Value: 0.5

1. My friend Camille gave me the idea
2. I'm less likely to be chased by a dog
3. Being in a frog costume makes me feel brave

Cons:
