My son Harry became increasingly fascinated by animal lifecycles this year. When I saw Ribbit at the library I knew he had to have it.
Each spread of this beautifully illustrated book shows a moment in the lifecycle of a frog paired with a single word. Harry loves pointing to each word, reading it...

With just one adverb on each page, we see the story of a frog's life from egg to adult frog and how the cycle continues. Since there is only the one word, would be great to use in both one on one reading and story times. For story times, read the one word and have the children "read" the story us...

The pictures are simple, and help to show how a frog develops from an egg to a tadpole to a froglet, and then all the way through to her adult stage and her own opportunity to cr...

I want to love this book, so badly, because the illustrations are great and the nearly-wordless minimalist style is so great, but sometimes these books just really come off as try-hards.

The life of a frog in 15 words (actually 14, because one is repeated twice). A lovely, almost word-less picture book with striking illustrations full of restful greens and vibrant pops of contrasting colors. As a read aloud, have your audience of kiddos tell what's going on and predict what word...

With only one word on each page to describe the events taking place, there is a lot of room to talk through this book with readers. Following these leopard frogs through their life cycle is as visually appealing as it is educational, and the additional author's note in the back provide's more inf...

Be sure to pair this with "Hop" by Hurley. One word per full double page spread tells the life cycle of a frog.
These simple-looking illustrations appeal to me. I say simple-looking because they are done purposefully and everything has a meaning. They have clear lines that also blend - just as an...

Like Jorey Hurley's Nest, Ribbit is a one-word-per-page delight. Showing the life cycle of a frog in simple words and illustrations, a little more explanation might be needed for little ones to fully grasp the concepts, though.

This book was on a recommendation shelf at my public library. It has wonderful illustrations and each page layout is captivating. One word captures the scene on each spread and follows a little frog in as it moves around its habitat. My daughter (6-months) loved the colorful illustrations.

simple text, well illustrated, and gave us lots to talk about. We'll be looking for Hurley's other books.
