     An action-packed rhyming counting book for young readers. Children will follow Fred as he hops through his bug-filled bog, slurping up slugs, nymphs, spiders, and other bog creatures. Young readers and counters alike will find joy in counting along with Fred through this hungry adventure in his habitat.

back story

     This book was created many years ago and had been waiting for the perfect artist to capture the whimsical nature of the book. I was blessed with meeting Leslie Wing Orue, who brought each page of this book to life with his beautiful and charming illustrations and animations.

Reviews / Testimonials


“We LOVE Fred the Frog! My daughter just turned three, so counting pretty much ANYTHING is fun and exciting for her. This book with its adorable (and not scary!) bugs the fun, song-like rhymes were an instant hit with her. She loves the part about ‘Fred Slurrrping up lazy lice’ – it always makes her laugh when we read that part. Great illustrations, and great for counting with preschoolers, they won’t even realize they are learning. I hope Sherry Been writes more like this!”
