One Frog Sang (Paperback)
"Children are sure to want to count these quirky frogs and to pore over the pages as they do. . . . Parenteau's lyrical language is the icing on the cake." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS
On a wet spring night, one big frog sings KA-BLU-URP Two tiny frogs sing PREEP, PREEP, three young frogs sing RIBBIT, RIBBIT, all the way up to ten frogs who trill PEEP, PEEP as a frog chorus fills the air with grunts and croaks and chirps. The night is resonant until . . . a car splashes down the street and all the frogs, from ten down to one, are hushed Shirley Parenteau offers a joyfully cacophonous counting-up and counting-down story, vibrantly illustrated by Cynthia Jabar.
