About The Book

This lyrical and playful read-aloud from the author of New York Times bestselling Bear Snores On is now available in a Classic Board Book edition.

There’s a small green frog on a half-sunk log in the middle of the bog. He eats one tick, two fleas, three flies, four slugs, and five snails. And the frog gets a whole lot bigger.

Then a hungry gator shows up, ready to eat the big fat frog. The frog opens his mouth wide to scream and out comes everything he’s eaten! And the frog gets a whole lot smaller.

The gator swims off, the frog keeps away from the log, and the insects keep away from the frog.

Now available as a Classic Board Book, this rhythmic and humorous story that counts from one to five is perfect for the youngest of readers.
