My Take on the Book
Mo Willems has written a humorous and enjoyable story about a little frog named Nanette who's mother gives her the responsibility to purchase a baguette at the bakery. This is a new responsibility for this little frog so she takes it very seriously.
The author used delightful rhyming text which is fun to read. The author illustrates the happiness, fear, curiosity , and seriousness in little Nanette's facial expressions.
You will be surprised to see what occurs after Nanette is walking home with her baguette. However, even though there is a slight problem when Nanette arrives home, her mother shows patience and forgiveness as they return to the bakery once again.
