A little boy and his dad are going fishing for the day. The dad packed their lunch and the little boy packed his frog. The dad believed that it wasn't a good idea to bring the frog along on the trip. While on the fishing trip, the frog hops away and throughout the book the boy and his dad go searching for the frog. At the end of the story they end up finding the frog under a lilypad. ( )

Little Critter has been a standard installment on the bookshelves of children since my own childhood, and it’s a rare child who can resist his unique brand of innocent exploration.

Where is My Frog is a classic lift-the-flap book that features Little Critter and his search for his pet frog who escapes on a family fishing trip. The text is simple “Is the frog in the log?” followed by a page with a log incorporated into the illustration, complete with a flap children can check behind to see if the frog is there.

There’s a happy, feel-good ending, and the short book text makes this a great pick for toddlers through preschoolers. My two-year-old is in love with flap-based books, so this is a perfect introduction to Mercer Mayer’s illustrations and storytelling for her. Of course, my older children (4, and 7) also like to listen in when mom reads this one.)

While the flaps are quite sturdy, and so are the thick pages, parents should of course keep in mind their specific child’s tendency to rip and tear, because flaps are always vulnerable. Our book is thankfully (and surprisingly) still intact!
