Barking Frog Reads

I love books and I love book clubs, so it just seems natural to start a book club within this blog. On the first day of each month I will announce the book we will share. We will read the book and post comments.

Stranger in the Woods

Stranger In the Woods by Carl R. Sams II and Jean Stoick is a wonderful book for children 4-8 years old. The award-winning book is full of soft, quiet photographs and playful, fun-to-read text. The animals in the book come alive with unique voices and personalities. It is the perfect book to read as winter approaches.

Carl R. Sams II and Jean Stoick are both professional wildlife photographers. Their images have appeared in national and international publications, such as National Geographic and Nature’s Best. Together they use their beautiful photography to gently teach young readers an appreciation for nature. Visit their website at

After reading the book, I will be surprised if you can keep yourselves from running to the woods and making your own snowman. And why not do it? If you do, please post a photograph of you and your snowman here, and tell us about your experience.

If you enjoy this book, below are links to more books by this creative pair.
