A beautifully illustrated tale about finding joy and wonder in the world around us, by best-selling author/illustrator Jane Chapman.

Frog is tired of his dark, dull pond, so he goes off exploring. His friend Mouse shows him the wonders of the woods where they live. Frog marvels at the beautiful colors and animals he sees. But there’s nothing quite as beautiful in his own pond…is there? This exquisitely illustrated tale by best-selling author/illustrator Jane Chapman explores the idea of finding joy and wonder in the world around us, and in the simple things that are also miraculous.

A big thank you to NetGalley and Tiger Tales for an advanced read copy of this book!

Jane Chapman is one of my favorite children’s book illustrators and I was so excited for the opportunity to review this book. As always, Chapman’s drawings were adorable and engaged in the reader throughout the story.

Each of Us is a Miracle is the perfect spring read aloud for young elementary aged or preschool children. It tells the tale of Frog and Mouse as they explore their springtime environments encountering many signs of spring.

This book would make a great addition to a classroom library to supplement a science unit on life cycles or the Spring season. I’m looking forward to adding this book to my personal library as well as my classroom library.

This was a very sweet story. My four year old song really enjoyed the book. The illustrations are fun and whimsical. I loved the message for children that you can find beauty in anything, you just have to look. Definitely recommend reading this book with the young kiddos in your life!

Each of us is a miracle - that is what mouse and frog learn as they explore each other's homes. Beautiful illustrations - especially the ones under the water. Sweet story that teaches us so see and appreciate where we are.

This charming picture book tells a simple, thematically familiar story about learning to see the beauty where you are. The text is nice and simple for young children, and the illustrations are the main draw for this book. The animal friends are adorable, and the nature scenes are just beautiful. They are full of light and color, and have so many wonderful details.

We road tripped to Florida for spring break and I was so happy I had been approved for sixteen new children’s books coming out this year. It helped so much to break up some time with stories! The kids loved them and had so much fun picking out a book from my netgalley app to read. We didn’t read a single book we didn’t like! Tuckers favorite was Elmo’s new book, Kinley loved the fairy godmother book, Dawsyn loved the basketball one, and Briggs adored the animal book. I highly suggest adding all of these to your summer library reading lists for kids. I love children’s books, and these were full of beautiful illustrations, stories, and allowed us to have some great conversations after them. Thank you @netgalley for these advanced copies! @lisakatzenberger @alicewalstead @eringuendelsberger @aimeereid @christiematheson @jackjokinen @sandranickel @janechapman @hudaharajli @fraanushkin @saralauxakin @laurapurdiesalas @katyhudson emilymurrow @zackwilliams 📚📖🚗☀️🏝️🌊👙

Beautiful pictures! Very cute story and would recommend for a younger age group 0-4 years old in my opinion. Great message for children to appreciate ourselves and our home. I wish the frog was on the cover because he is a main part of the story.

Each of Us is a Miracle is an adorable story. With an overall message to find beauty and wonder in yourself and others, this is a perfect book for children. The illustrations are colorful and and detailed with depictions of a variety of animals and insects. The sound effects and changing direction/sizing of font will be sure to keep children entertained.

I received a DRC from Tiger Tales via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Thanks to NETGALLEY and Tiger Tales for eARC

Can't go wrong with artwork that is adorable, endearing, and gorgeous coupled with integral messages of positivity and acceptance. A perfect springtime book with a sweet message that I partake in frequently; admiring the flora and fauna, the stars and clouds, nifty facts, so on and so forth (I also say things are magic in utter wonderment). 💕

This is an absolutely PRECIOUS book!! The artwork and the message are both beautifully perfect. I will certainly be purchasing this for my nature-based Storytimes at work!!

This was a really cute story that teaches children to see the beauty in creation around them with gratitude and wonder!
A character doesn't see himself or his home as special, until his friend shows him just how miraculous he and his neighborhood are.

This would be an encouraging bedtime story or for kids learning to read.

Many thanks to the publisher for the complimentary e-book I received to review through Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review, and the thoughts above are my own.

A sweet reminder of how amazing everyday life can look when seen through the eyes of another. The world of frog and mouse is so beautifully illustrated, as Chapman’s drawings always are. A great read for those interested in woodland and pond environments, and those who need a reminder that each of us, in our unique ways, are miracles.
