"Beautifully illustrated, this book will have you in tears. A very touching story about a friendship that develops between a blue bellied toad and a sad peach. One hopping through life and the other longing to discover the world. Together they see things they never saw on their own, alone. A sincere, poignant, heartfelt story that teaches on a deeper level, more so than other books for this age. Two and up through elementary will enjoy, and one day they too will grasp the real meaning of the story. It is one of our family favorites."
"This book shows that no matter how different you are or where you come from, you can develop a friendship with anyone if you are willing to help each other out. I think this book could be read to any age because everyone needs to be reminded about what a friendship actually is and not what kids can make of it."
