This book was an interesting read, however, it had no words in it. Being a book of only pictures, it is great for teachers who would like to show students who haven't started reading how easy it is to create their own story by using the pictures. The teacher could also allow the students to help her tell the story from page to page. The reading level is Pre-Reader

Back Cover: Frog on his own…..

Mine: This is a great new series (to me) and of course it has frogs in it, so how can I not read it?

Once again the illustrations can’t help but tell the wonderful story of how frog discovers what it’s like to be on his own. It’s not quite what he thinks – he realized he should be eating wasps, scaring people will get you in trouble and cats can chase. Finally dog comes to the rescue to run the cat off and boy and frog are reunited.

Frog wants to go play by himself for a day, but he gets into some trouble. His boy, frog and friend find his just in time to save the day.

Mercer Mayer's illustrations are classic. This is part of a series of wordless books about frog. Reading a wordless book aloud together gives your child the opportunity to tell the story in his or her own words. The sequenced arrangement of the pictures give the child clues about the emerging plot. ( )

I really like this book and while it is complex ELL could be introduced to it a little at a time. They could look at a few pages and try and understand who the book is about and what is going on. The frog has the opportunity to meet many individuals and have a great adventure while still finding his boy at the end of the day. It could also be used to teach a lesson on the importance of following directions and sticking with your group (family, teacher, class, etc.). ( )
