Hubert the frog is a smart, purple frog who is constantly teased by his classmates and harassed by his brother and his sister. They are all green and they make fun of Hubert because he is different. One morning, Hubert wakes up with a green spot on the middle of his forehead. Each morning after, another green spot appears. He covers them up because he knows the teasing will only get worse. Imagine being a purple frog with green spots! How will Hubert ever survive the humiliation? He doesn't mind being purple but maybe it would be easier if he was all green like everyone else.

Editorial Reviews

"You will fall in love with Hubert, a lovable purple frog who gets bullied in school. His journey of self discovery will tug at your heart. Hubert's story is what everyone needs. In a day and age where society still puts so much focus on conforming, this book is a subtle way to teach children that it's ok to be yourself." Carolyn A. Laurie, BooksBecause  "As an educator, I see many class discussions and writing prompts coming from reading The Purple Frog to my class. Our students are bombarded every day in the media and at school the need to conform and to fit in especially in their appearance. Few understand everyone is unique and awesome which is just one of the valuable lessons in this book. Readers will also see that change is ok. Our students go through many changes in the early grades and on into Junior and Senior High Schools. This story will come back to mind and reassure them that change is part of the journey, and it’s ok. Educators spend a great deal of time discussing bullying and teasing. This book also helps us see the effects of these issues. But one of the most important topics that comes through in this book is that what we look like on the outside is not important. It changes as we move through life. What is on the inside is special, wonderful, and what is really of value. This heartwarming book is inspiring and a very helpful addition to any home or classroom’s library." Mrs. Tess Adams, Teacher "A child friendly story to share the struggle that people, and children specifically, have, being a bit different. A young frog wanting to fit in, wishing to blend in, away from name calling, only to discover being different is perfectly fine. A child friendly read showing how we can lose ourselves to fit in then realizing showing who we really are makes us the happiest." Yvonne LaPierre, Educator
