Very funny. Our favorite book!
on July 13, 2003
Pop-up books are a great way to get kids interested in reading. My son is 5 and will be entering Kindergarten soon and he hasn't taken to reading on his own much. When I noticed how much he enjoyed the flip tab and pop up books, I went crazy on Amazon ordering all I could find that might be of interest to him. While I have found many that are great and educational, this book has to be the funniest. It doesn't really have any educational content, but my 5-year-old asks for it almost every night. This book is only a few pages so I don't mind reading it along with another book. The first time we read it, and of course added some original character voices, we both laughed for a good two minutes. He now has it memorized and likes to do the voices for the charaters(so cute).
Brief Synopsis: The frog is a very curious one and he enjoys asking other animals what they eat, after boasting, "I'm a wide mouth frog and I eat flies." After asking a bird and mouse, he runs into an alligator that seems to be interested in him. The pop ups are great and the end is a huge payoff "SPLASH"! I say it's a must have!
