    “I purchased this book for my four-year-old nephew, and then I got to read it to him when I visited during Christmas—he loves it! The big frog eyes on the cover were so inviting for him to want to pick it off of the bookshelf and the colorful frog illustrations continued on every page. He pointed out to me the illustrations of all the bugs and different kinds of frogs that we read about in the book. It is short enough to keep his attention span, (which is short at four) but has real learning opportunities about frogs inside of the fun rhymes.”

    “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!”
