Children’s Book Synopsis:

The curious wide-mouthed frog wants to find out the favorite foods of all the animals he meets along his journey.

He can’t stop himself chattering away, stopping to ask every creature he meets: ‘What do you eat?’

But then he meets an animal who loves eating wide-mouthed frogs…

bunnyMy Book Review:

This is an amusing story that my mother, who is a storyteller, tells to young children. In book form, the pop ups of the animals are delightful, and the repetition of “I’m a wide-mouthed frog and I eat flies…What do you eat?” helps the kids join in as they learn about what mouse, bird and alligator love to eat. And despite the carnivorous inclinations of the alligator, the story of The Wide-Mouthed Frog has a funny ending.
