Frank and the Giant

Frank, an adventurous little frog, is playing with his friends, when suddenly his ball flies off and bounces into the house of a giant! Frank's friends are too scared to help him get his ball back, so he sneaks into the huge house all by himself. There he is discovered by the giant, who seems big and scary to Frank, but who is really a friendly little boy.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A little frog named Frank is playing ball with his other animal friends. The ball sails high over their heads into the giant's house. Bravely, Frank hops in through an open window so he can retrieve his ball. Of course while searching, he encounters the giant who has a very large mouth and huge teeth. All ends happily when the giant turns out to be a little boy who gladly returns the ball to Frank and his friends. Size differences are cleverly portrayed in the bright, bold illustrations. The pages showing the contrasts in facial features between the boy and frog are especially good. This is another title in the "We Both Read" series intended to be used by a parent and child sitting down and reading together. The adult reads the right- hand pages and the child reads the left-hand pages. Parents should find these books useful in fostering reading development. 2005, Treasure Bay, Ages 5 to 6.

K-Gr 1-Each book features a page on the left for adults to read and a simpler text for children on the right. Together, the two narratives tell a story or provide information about a specific topic. Grow Up has full-color photographs of people holding different jobs. The text seems complex for beginning readers, and picture clues do not always match it. The adult text also seems too lengthy to engage most young readers. Frank is a story about a frog and his friends whose ball lands in a giant's house. As it turns out, the giant is a friendly human boy. This text is much simpler and shorter than that in the first book. Picture clues on the child's page allow even the most inexperienced reader to figure out the correct word or phrase. Large, colorful cartoon characters and objects appear on uncluttered white backgrounds. This innovative reading idea is sure to please parents, but careful consideration of a child's reading ability and interests should be taken into account when selecting books from this series.-Anne L.
