Before You Leap: A Frog's-Eye View of Life's Greatest Lessons
by Kermit the Frog

Published in 2006. 224 pages.

I heard about Before You Leap from Melessa, who is a big Muppets fan. As she said, "What's not to love?"

I didn't put this one on my Spring Reading Thing list, but I had picked it up at the library and I just kept opening it up and reading a few more pages until, all of a sudden, I was finished with it! So I'm going to count it as one of my five "wild card" picks.

Here are two highlights of the book ...

In the chapter titled "The Seven Dreams of Highly Effective Amphibians", I found this bit of advice:

You must look deep inside your heart and ask what you really want. If your immediate answer is "dessert," you probably missed your heart and went directly to your stomach.

And I loved this quote in the chapter titled "Love Amphibian Style":

Love is a gift. Don't ask for the receipt!
