PreSchool-Grade 2-A frog tries to catch a fly, but finds himself on the other end of the food chain in this simple cumulative tale by Robert Kalan (Greenwillow, 1995). As each new danger appears, the frog is left with one option: jump, frog, jump! The frog's final escape, however, requires the help of a boy. Young children will enjoy the suspense as the frog struggles to survive, and will join in with the male narrator in the repetitive text. A few simple sound effects are used, as well as occasional light background music. Sound quality is excellent. Page turn signals are offered on one side of the tape. This is a book that pre-schoolers, especially, will embrace for its simple plot and step-by-step action.

are excellent for young listeners and beginning readers. The color/black
and white pages also have a predictable pattern. After teaching kindergarten for over
31 years, I've never found a group of children that didn't quickly chime in,
"Jump, Frog, Jump." This is a favorite book to share. It is also fun to dramatize.
