9781482535655: Geronimo the Frog

How can a group of animal friends from Florida’s Big Cypress Swamp defend their home from Bad Billy’s gang? Leave it to Geronimo, the little frog with a big mission. He’ll stop at nothing to save his beloved land from being trashed by Bad Billy and his gang, who are leaving their garbage all over the place. Can Geronimo save the day?

Geronimo the Frog, written by Matthew Stein and illustrated by Taillefer Long, tells the story of one brave frog and his wonderful cast of animal friends. By working together, they are brave enough to fight the pollution that is threatening their beautiful Florida forests and swamps. Light-hearted and featuring a valuable environmental message, this illustrated children’s tale for kids ages two- to seven-years-old offers plenty of swampland excitement, while also teaching the positive values of ecology, courage, and teamwork.

With a nod to the Seminole Native Americans who make the Florida swamps and forests their home, Geronimo the Frog provides a perfect introduction to the singular culture and the natural wonder of the state. The book features animals native to the Florida swamp and forest setting, while engaging children with the all-important topic of working to preserve the habitat of these delightful animals.

Geronimo rallies friends Echaswa the Raccoon, Koowe the Panther, Kunu the Squirrel, Yube the Alligator, Obu the Owl, and many others to chase Bad Billy out of the swamp. But Bad Billy is equally ready to put a stop to them. To do so, he must stop Geronimo first. As the two groups clash, and Geronimo is captured, the suspense and excitement build in this delightful, fast-paced tale with a meaningful message. It’s up to Geronimo to save Big Cypress Swamp!

About the Author:

Mat Stein is an environmentalist, bestselling author, MIT trained engineer, and green builder. As an inspiring speaker and visionary thinker, he is dedicated to helping people wake up and unite to shift our collective course from collapse to global renaissance. On the practical side of things, as an expert at self-reliance, emergency prep, and survival, his writings and work help people prepare to weather the storms we are facing due to continuing climate change and ecological decline, coupled with a fossil fuel based economy that has recently passed the peak in world oil production and is struggling to cope with impending near-term shortfalls.

Matthew Stein is the author of two bestselling books, When Technology Fails: A Manual for Self-Reliance, Sustainability and Surviving the Long Emergency (Chelsea Green 2008), and his new book, When Disaster Strikes: A Comprehensive Guide to Emergency Planning and Crisis Survival (Chelsea Green 2011), which released in November to rave reviews, hitting Amazon’s bestseller list! Stein is a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where he majored in Mechanical Engineering.

As the owner of Stein Design & Construction, he has built hurricane resistant, energy efficient and environmentally friendly homes. The mechanical engineering side of his firm specializes in product design and development. Among other things, Mat has designed consumer water filtration devices, solar PV roofing panels, medical bacterial filters, emergency chemical drench systems, computer disk drives, and portable fiberglass buildings.

In recognition of his expertise, Stein has appeared on over a hundred radio and television programs and is a repeat guest on dozens of shows, including Fox News, MSNBC, Gary Null, Coast-to-Coast AM, and the Thom Hartmann Show. He has also written a number of articles on the subject of sustainable living and is a guest columnist for the Huffington Post.

Stein has been an active outdoorsman since he was a small child, an extreme skier and climber (over a hundred Yosemite Valley ascents including several El Capitan and Half Dome big walls), and volunteers as a guide and cross country ski instructor for the blind with the Sierra Regional Ski for Light program. He and his wife Josie live in the High Sierra Mountains near Lake Tahoe, California.

Review:

"A thoroughly enjoyable tale of bravery, imagination, friendship and triumph. The brilliantly colored illustrations are full of life and energy. Geronimo is a dynamic force, and his energy and appeal seem to leap off the pages. Stein balances several instructive moments for kids. These lessons, however, do not distract from the pure joy of the adventures of Geronimo and his animal friends. The text flows well when read aloud, and it's just challenging enough to keep the interest of children who have moved beyond the very basic picture books. "
--Kirkus Reviews

"Mr. Stein's Geronimo the Frog is his first children's book. The story is imaginative, connects to the story's location, has great illustrations, and a wonderful ending. I did enjoy Geronimo the Frog. I loved the ending and the way it opens up a new dialogue for parents and kids. Teachers would like Geronimo the Frog if there were fewer words and could turn the pages faster, before losing students' attention."
--Kid Lit Reviews

"Based on an original story created for the author's daughter, Geronimo the Frog features a band of swamp creatures with Seminole (and other Native American names) who are determined to protect their sacred Big Cypress Swamp from Bad Billy's Gang. Written to appeal to an audience of children age 2-7, Geronimo the Frog has a fast moving plot, heroes, villains, spunky narrative, and best of all, a lovable underdog hero who comes out on top. Motivating others to take action to help preserve the habitat of all represented species is central, but the happy by-product is environmental themed entertainment with a positive, empowering message."
--Midwest Book Review/Children's Bookwatch
