A Frog in the Bog by Karma Wilson

A Frog in the BogA Frog in the Bog, written by Karma Wilson and illustrated by Joan Rankin, is one of our favorite books by this author. Frog is sitting on a log in the bog having a feast when he gets a big surprise.

This is such a fun book!  The rhyming text is great fun of it's own accord but it's made even more fun because it incorporates counting as the frog eats first one, and then two, and then three, and so on.  This would be a great fun addition to a math class.

On Karma Wilson's website you can find a list of books she has written.  We've read, and enjoyed, many of them.  There is a Teachers resources page with activity ideas for many of he books.  Click on Frog in the Bog on the Teachers resources page to find fun frog activities to go along with A Frog in the Bog.
