Dutch Days Book Review: Frog and the Treasure by Max Velthuijs

Amazon USA Amazon UK

Review by Anniek

If you look up this book on Amazon you will see that Max Velthuijs is one of the best creators of children's book in the Netherlands. When you read a Frog book with your children you will understand why.

All of the stories of Frog and his friends will warm your heart and/or make you laugh. Luckily my son loves to read just as much as I do. I love our little quiet times when we just sit down together and read a story. 

What I like the most about Frog is that there is a message in every book. In frog and the Treasure it is that you must always stay positive (which is a great match for this blog), everything will be OK and you will learn from your mistakes. Also, this is a story about a treasure. What can be more exciting for a child than a treasure hunt?! The drawings are fantastic. They are simple and that is perfect for your little ones.   

There are plenty of Frog books on my son's bookshelves and I love every single one of them. When you have little children they will definitely enjoy these books. Luckily lots of them have been translated into English so you don't have to miss out on these great Dutch books.

  1. I am reading a lot more children's books now that I have a granddaughter. Luckily I saved the books from my daughters' when they were growing up so I have a good starting pile or piles.
