Author Carolyn Wilhelmabout this book: The Frogs Buy a New House is An Economics Story for Children who are moving to a new home as their families go through the process of cleaning the house, getting a real estate appraisal, have showings, shop for a new home, have a walkthrough, get a mortgage approved, and finally pack and move. It is a longer process than many children anticipate. In the story, the little tadpole (Fred) keeps asking how he might help. He does help by doing everything his parents ask such as cleaning his room, reading quietly while they sign many papers, and understand he needs to wait for toys until his birthday as money has to settle down first after the move.

In frog terms, the family has a hop-through for a walkthrough. Tadpole Ted cleans his room, packs his toys, and attends a new school. Felix Frog, the father, likes the world map in the classroom. Flora Frog, the mom, likes the music class. Tadpole Ted likes the other children.

Economic terms and the reality of what is involved in a family moving to a new place is interwoven through this fictional frog story.
