If you plan to teach frogs or pond life this spring, you don’t want to miss this awesome list of frog books for preschoolers.
As you begin to plan out your frog activities, be sure to include a mix of both nonfiction books about frogs or fiction books featuring frog characters.
The books featured below are perfect for kids ages 3-6. You’ll find books that contain fun facts about frogs, books featuring silly frogs and their adventures, and more!
Your kids will love listening to you read these frog books to them as they look at the pictures. Which one will you choose to read first?
I love leaving a pile of theme-related books around our learning areas. Kids get intrigued by the images on the cover of the books. The next thing I know, they’ve picked up the book and started flipping through the pages.
After a few minutes of flipping through the pages, I ask if they’d like me to read the book to them (if they haven’t already asked me to read it).
I will stop almost anything to sit and read to a child. I want nothing more than to raise a whole generation of voracious readers!
