When I was in college, we reviewed the book "Frog Goes to Dinner" by Mercer Mayer. One of the reasons why this cute wordless book is so useful for kids, is that it allows children to use their imagination and deductive reasoning skills. Children can learn how to understand a story without being told explicitly what is going on. In addition - before children have the ability to read, they are able to peruse a book - and really get it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This gem of a book is easily understandable - but by no means simple. the illustrations are so wonderful - I was able to ask a three year old child what feelings specific charachters were displaying, and he was able to tell me straight out - and they give a wonderful depiction of the hysterical story.
There was one issue that I had with this book, and that is that it was poking fun at real damages. For example, one of the highlights of the book is when a musician falls through, and breaks, a drumset. This came across as funny in the book, while in reality, it is anything but!
On the whole, a terrific book to share with kids!
