Frog on a Log? (Hardcover)
I love Frog on a Log?! This is marvelous book to read aloud. Cat and Frog have to talk about all the different types of animals and what they will sit on. Frog are to sit on logs, but Frog doesn’t like that. Here is a small sample; “Goats sit on coats, cows sit on plows, storks sit on forks.” How fun is that!

"It's very simple, really. Cats sit on mats, hares sit on chairs, mules sit on stools, gophers sit on sofas, and frogs sit on logs."
Each animal's designated seat rhymes with that animal's name. "It's not about being comfortable," explains the cat. "It's about doing the right thing."
The frog does not want to sit on a log. Doing his best to find an alternative place to sit, the frog asks the cat a litany of questions. For every answer the cat has, the frog has another question--until the frog finds out what dogs sit on
Peppered with catchy rhymes, FROG ON A LOG? shows young readers that every animal has a special place to sit. With rhymes that are reminiscent of Dr. Seuss's beginner books, FROG ON A LOG? is a fun, educational read-aloud story that helps teach phonics.
