Review: Fribbet The Frog And The Tadpoles

Fribbet's gone missing! The crew searches for the excitable frog and finally find him troubled and crying in the stern. Fribbet is very upset, and it's up to Captain No Beard and the crew to find out what's wrong. Fribbet the Frog and the Tadpoles is another great voyage into problem solving and friendship, as well as an adventurous trip into the imagination. Join the Captain No Beard and his friends as they learn the value of sharing our troubles with others and that help is always there when we need it.

Carole P. Roman's Fribbet the Frog and the Tadpoles (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2015) is an adorable little book about the benefits of leaning on friends during times of trouble.  And what's the trouble?  New babies in the house!  Roman keeps things light and entertaining even as she's offering comfort to older siblings feeling a little displaced.  The illustrations are really bright and cute, and who doesn't love tadpoles? I definitely recommend this one for younger readers.

I received a complimentary copy of Fribbet the Frog and the Tadpoles to facilitate my review.  No other compensation was received.  For full disclosure, see the sidebar.

Hang In There



It can't rain forever . . . can it?

All joking aside, the flooding here in Oklahoma and in Texas has been devastating and deadly. Please consider aiding recovery efforts by donating to the American Red Cross.
