One of our favorite, almost wordless books (the only words that appear in the book are: Ah Ha! Aahh! and Ha Ha!). Jeff Mack both writes and illustrates this fun tale of a frog who only wants to relax and its narrow escape from a kid, turtle, alligator, and flamingo. Kids will be amused by how the frog outsmarts them all in the end! The kid in the book is drawn in a gender neutral way and could be read as a boy or a girl depending on what sort of protagonist you are looking for in your house. Warning: this books lends itself to loud, excited reading!
