From the bestselling author of “Bear Snores On” comes this hilariously illustrated story that teaches young readers the concept of counting from one to five and back again. Full color.
A funny story that also teaches counting! The rhyme in this book flows well and grows as the story progresses, though it can be a little bit of a mouthful. :) The watercolor illustrations feel perfect for the swamp where the frog lives. This is a fun book, but I wouldn’t necessarily want to read it over and over.
