This story is mainly about gender roles, because a boy starts knitting and feels embarrassed about it. You don’t have to stick with your gender role. I like that people are starting to explore themselves and see and do new things. So they need to know it’s good to do what they want and not to feel pressured by society and other people’s beliefs. The author should make more books!– Karolina, 13, New York, NY

I liked that this featured a father…also that there was a bit of science and frog lifecycle information woven into the story.
