1. This is a cute picture book of the children's song, "Five Little Speckled Frogs", which talks about frogs sitting on a log eating flies. The song is accompanied by colorful, fun illustrations.
2. I really enjoyed this book because most children have heard and enjoy singing the song. I thought it was great that they took a much enjoyed song and turned it into a book. I would use it in my class to allow children to strengthen their musical skills as well and counting.
3. This is definitely a book for younger children, ages 2-4 or so. It would work well in a unit about amphibians or frogs.

Whenever I hear the song Five Little Speckled Frogs I immediately go back to when I was a kid and my Daddy would play it on his guitar and I would sing along. When I saw that Nikki had illustrated the song in a book, my hand shot up and hollered ME, ME.. I would love to review it! Yes I have some personal attachment to the song J

Nikki took a simple kids song and created a splashing good time! Her illustrations are simple, yet fun. The frogs on the page pop out at you as in a collage scene. I loved their long pink tongues when they were catching bugs. The only thing I wish was that Nikki would have made a different drawing each time a frog jumped into the pool (where it was nice and cool !) rather than reusing the same one each time. I think it would have been more creative to add them jumping in differently.

I just love sitting and singing the song with my little ones and showing them the book as I showcase this great song for a new generation! ( )

Book description
"Five Little Speckled Frogs, sitting on a hollow log, eating some most delicious bugs. Yum, yum!" This picture book beautifully illustrates the familiar children's song through watercolor, collage and graphic design. Children and adults can easily read or sing the repetitive text while they count down from five. Watch for patterns by keeping an eye on the frogs and those "most delicious bugs."
