Leapfrog World Tales: The Frog Emperor Summary

Leapfrog World Tales: The Frog Emperor by Anne Adeney

Exciting stories from around the world told in fewer than 180 words, suitable for children who are starting to read independently. The series introduces readers to stories from other cultures and encourages them to find where the story comes from on a map. This tale comes from China. A poor couple long for a child, but when their prayers are answered, the baby, Ju-Long, is a frog! Ju-Long believes that he can win his country's war for the emperor. How can a frog beat an army? The tale has echoes of The Frog Prince, where a noble, brave soul shines through the skin of a frog! Puzzles at the back of the book encourage children to reread and retell the story in their own words, and helps build vocabulary by matching words to characters.
