This is a cute story with excellent pictures, but it gets a little repetitive after a while. It might be helpful for introducing the concept of a food chain (though not all the animals in the story would eat each other). A bilingual English/Spanish version of this story came inside a Cheerios box. Unlike other stories that came as part of the Cheerios "Spoonfuls of Stories" promotion, someone actually put effort into making the Spanish translation rhyme for this book, which is appreciated. However, because of the nature of the original book, which has the words written very closely with the illustrations (almost as part of the illustration, since the words also "jump"), there is much less of a separation between the English and Spanish versions in this book, and all the words are sort of crammed in together. An adult reader can tell that the Spanish is smaller, but a child just learning to read might not be able to tell which words are which, making this a more difficult reading experience than it needs to be.

My two year old ADORES this book! He kicks his legs along to the rhythm, and loves the "sploosh!" at the end. Lots of fun! ( )

Inside Cover: If you were a FROG in a BOG and you saw a BUG on a JUG, what would you do?

Mine: I love anything to do with Frogs and this one is great. This book all started out as a song, but definitely changes well to a book.

This cute little picture book and wonderfully illustrated by the author. It has to do with each animal each smaller animal jumping away from the larger – the cat jumping from the dog, the crocodile jumping from the shark, the shark jumping from the whale

Summary: This is a rhyming story that begins with a bug, who jump away out of fear when it sees a frog. It then follows a chain, each animal who had been after a smaller animal turning into the one who has to jump away from an even bigger animal until a whale puts an end to it. The whale makes such a large splash that all the other animals are sent sailing back to where they'd come from.
Genre Critique: This is a book of fantasy. While each animal would likely be afraid and jump from the bigger animal that was after it, the fact that in the end all the animals get splashed back to their homes by a whale is impossible.
Plot: This was a patterned plot in that essentially the same event (with a slight variation) is repeated over and over throughout the story. This made it predictable and therefore makes it a simple plot for children to follow.
