PreS- Little Frog and his mom live by a pond and are perfectly happy. When his mother asks him if he'd like a brother or sister, he says, "No. We're just fine as we are." Then Little Frog notices "strange little things" swimming in the pond that soon become lots and lots of tiny frog babies. Soon he is overrun by dozens and dozens of smaller, leaping, noisy siblings. Little Frog can't get away from them and they drive him crazy. But his wise mom points out that it's because they look up to him and want to be like him. Finally, when Frog puts his foot down and demands order, he discovers that it's not so bad to be the object of such unabated adoration. So even though they may be a really big family now, Frog realizes that they are just fine as they are. The watercolor illustrations perfectly capture both his worry as little tadpoles surround him and his pleasure as he adjusts to his new life. Preschoolers familiar with the difficulties of adjusting to a new baby in the house will empathize with Little Frog's plight and cheer him on as he adjusts to his new role of big brother.-Jane Marino, Bronxville Public Library, NY
