Book Review - One Frog Sings by Shirley Parenteau
Title: One Frog Sings
Author: Shirley Parenteau
Challenges: 101 Books in 1001 Days, PB&J, What an Animal
No. of Pages: 32
From the inside:
On a wet spring night, one big frog sings Ka-Blu-Urp!
Two tiny frogs sing preep, preep
Three young frogs sing ribbit, ribbit
All the way up to ten frogs who trill peep, peep as a frog chorus fills the air with grunts and croaks, chirps and ribbits – until….a car splashes down the street and all the frogs from 10 down to one are hushed.
What a great way for children to learn how to count up to 10 and down to 1. It is greatly illustrated with 148 frogs all together.
