Books
Robert Kalan by:Jump, Frog, Jump
A simple cumulative tale where the frog tries to catch the fly but ends up being caught himself! The story contains repetitive text good for interaction.
Irene Livingston by:Finkelhopper Frog
Finkelhopper Frog's jogging style and crazy jogging suit make him the object of criticism. This is a great rhyming story for teaching that differences should be celebrated.
Keith Faulkner by:The Wide-Mouthed Frog (pop-up book)
The wide-mouthed frog questions other animals about what they eat until he meets someone that eats wide-mouthed frogs. This book is a hit with all ages.
Tony Mitton by:Down by the Cool of the Pool
Frog and his friends have a rhyming good time in and out of the pool.
Penelope Lively by:One, Two, Three Jump!
A little frog spends his time barely escaping danger in the garden with the help from his friend.
