Count on these frogs for a luminous read-aloud bursting with lyrical sound play and visual surprises.

On a wet spring night, one big frog sings KA-BLU-URP! Two tiny frogs sing PREEP, PREEP, three young frogs sing RIBBIT, RIBBIT, all the way up to ten frogs who trill PEEP, PEEP as a frog chorus fills the air with grunts and croaks and chirps. The night is resonant until . . . a car splashes down the street and all the frogs, from ten down to one, are hushed! Shirley Parenteau offers a joyfully cacophonous counting-up and counting-down story, vibrantly illustrated by Cynthia Jabar.

Children will love making the range of frog sounds, from “Preep, Preep” and “Gree-deep” to the more familiar “Ribbit, Ribbit,” presented in this entertaining counting story.
