Frog on a Log?

by Dawn Stoops | Sep 09, 2015
Some say cats are bossy animals, and in this new book by Kes Gray and Jim Field we certainly get that impression.

Frog on a Log starts with cat's stern instruction; "Hey, Frog! Sit on a log!" The rest of the book is a conversation between cat and frog about who sits where. We learn that cats sit on mats, goats sit on coats, puffins sit on muffins, and snakes sit on cakes. The cat knows all of this and lectures frog saying, "It's not about being comfortable, it's about doing the right thing."

These silly rhymes (and super silly pictures) make us smile, but they also help little brains understand how words are related to each other. When you play with the rhymes in books you're working on an important early literacy skill, phonological awareness. So read this one together and laugh as you learn!
