Sterling Books sent me an unsolicited copy of Where is My Frog? and I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to receive it! Although I no longer have small children, we still have stacks of Little Critter books from my boys' younger days. We're not willing to part with them; all of our Little Critter books are stored in the "save for future grandchildren and visitors" boxes.
In Where is My Frog, Little Critter goes on a fishing trip with his father, his dog and his frog (although Dad "didn't think taking frog was a good idea"). The moment they hop out of the car, the frog hops away and the rest of the book is devoted to a search for the missing frog. Because the book is a lift-the-flap book, the reader gets to lift the flaps to look for the frog -- inside a basket and a log, behind the leaves of a tree, under a rock, and so forth.
There are very few words, so the book would be great to read to small children who are still wiggly. I think you can go younger than a 4-year-old -- it just depends on whether or not a child has graduated from the ripping stage. Behind one of the flaps, Little Critter himself sits, giggling, while his father searches.
5/5- A fun addition to the lovely, happy Little Critter series; highly recommended.
This is Book 2 for Children's Day! More to come . . .
