that was Tired of Being Green tells the story of a frog called
Solomon. Solomon is bored of being green, and he believes that frogs who are
other colours have a far more exciting time.
He imagines what it would be like to be different colours, and
then, to his amazement, he wakes up one morning to find his wish has come true!
First he becomes orange, like his favourite marmalade. Then
he becomes blue, like the colour of the sky on a summer’s day. Afterwards, he
turns yellow, like the sun, and finally red, like dragons’ fire.
He gets very excited each time, and over several days shows
off his new colours to his friends – but none of them recognise him and they
run away! Instead, his friends go searching for the ‘real’ Solomon.
Solomon’s story emphasises the importance of being happy
with who you are. It also helps young readers learn about different colours and
the days of the week. The Frog that
was Tired of Being Green will appeal to children aged 2-5 years.
