For his lasting contribution to children's literature, Dutch author Max Vehthuijs received the Hans Christian Andersen Award, the highest recognition for a writer of children's books, for the Frog stories, 青蛙弗洛格.
In the Netherlands, Frog 弗洛格 (known as Kikker), along with his friends Pig, Duck, Bear, Mouse and Hare are among the most well-known fictional characters. In Frog's world, all the animals are the same size and status. In this world of absolute equality, animal friends go about their daily lives encountering and solving problems relevant to children's own daily lives.
Teachers and parents love that the Frog and his friends deal with real life issues and emotions-fear, pride, sadness, loss and love, and make difficult subjects and feelings understandable for young children. Children love the funny stories, the engaging plots, the bright illustrations, the suspense and the happy resolution to each story's dilemma. We love the Frog stories for their smooth, masterful Chinese translation by our favorite Chinese writer 彭毅.
The stories have been translated into 50 languages. Frog is a Hero 弗洛格是个英雄 is included in British National Curriculum.
Let the world's best children's literature inspire your child's love of learning Chinese. Add the Frog series to your child's bookshelf today.

Is my child ready for this set?
"Read to me": Ages 5+ will enjoy having these books read to them either by Luka or a caregiver.
"Read by myself": The involved plot and detailed illustrations will capture the interest of experienced readers, ages 7+.
Option to pair with Luka:
Set Luka in front of a book, and it will read aloud any random page your child turns to. Each Les P'tites Poules book takes Luka about 25 minutes to read page by page. Luka will really be helpful for busy parents who are wrestling to find time to read with their children as they gravitate towards longer book reading sessions. Luka creates a unique, independent physical book reading experience even if your child can't read by herself yet.
Looking for a gift to your children that is both cool and educational? Consider Luka!
In total, Luka reads 30,000 Chinese children's picture books and 6,000 English Children's books. Click to read our founders' personal review of Luka here.
