September 2010 Book Club Selection
It's Mine!
By Leo Lionni
Print/braille edition, $6.99
In contracted braille with skiplines
Ages 4-8

In this charmer from Caldecott-winner Leo Lionni, three childlike frogs
spend their days bickering and baiting each other: "It's mine," claims
one about the water. Another claims to own the earth, or a worm, or a
butterfly - or whatever. It isn't until disaster almost strikes and they
are saved by a toad that Milton, Rupert and Lydia realize that private
ownership isn't that important.

Whether grumbling for the sake of being difficult or dancing with
delight, Lionni's frogs spring to life.

"This story of selfishness on the pond, carried out in beautifully
simple collages and language, is a fine choice for story hours."--School
Library Journal.

"Lionni captures the essence of siblings in the cute frog characters.
The moral is easy to understand and something to remember for all ages,
not just children. A definite must have." - An Amazon reader
