A Frog in the Bog
Table of Contents
About The Book
There’s a small green frog on a half-sunk log in the middle of the bog. He eats one tick, two fleas, three flies, four slugs, and five snails. And the frog gets a whole lot bigger.
Then a hungry gator shows up, ready to eat the big fat frog. The frog opens his mouth wide to scream and out comes everything he’s eaten! And the frog gets a whole lot smaller.
The gator swims off, the frog keeps away from the log, and the insects keep away from the frog.
Now available as a Classic Board Book, this rhythmic and humorous story that counts from one to five is perfect for the youngest of readers.
