This was a funny textless picture book. This book would be great to show how friends help each other. The illustrations were done in ink and were very clear. I would use this book for social relationships between students. ( )

This time, the boy the dog and the frog go fishing in the pond. When a turtle takes his fishing pole, the three friends go after him. The turtle attacks and tragedy strikes, or so the friends think. It turns out, they have made a new friend!

Growing up, Mercer Mayer was one of my favorite story book authors. One of the best parts of these books was the comical nature of the text. That is why I was surprised to see this series of wordless books. However, they still capture the essence of his whimsical style, and are perfect for a young child who is just learning to talk. Introducing children to the concept of reading books before they even learn to do so can be a critical step in procuring this great habit.

This charmingly simple wordless story shows how a boy and his two animal friends are teased, tricked and surprised by a third. The expressive comic illustrations which seamlessly unfold a fishing trip at the pond will tickle audiences of all ages. ( )

I grew up with Mercer Mayer's Boy, Dog , Frog series of picture books, another amazing illustrator. I remember going through the books over and over again and making up different stories for each time. That is the magic of wordless picture books, they incite the imagination and encourage the little ones who cannot read yet to sit down comfortably and confidently with a book and make out the story on their own.
