Picture Books – Big Frog Can’t Fit In

Poor Big Frog. She just can’t fit inside the book! But if she can get some help from her friends, maybe something could be arranged…

This is a very simple pop-out book by Mo Willems, perhaps the King of simple books that are marvelous. While this isn’t his strongest work, it is nonetheless highly enjoyable. Big Frog’s bending and shrinking attempts to fit inside the book will be appreciated by children who often have the opposite problem: being too little to do something. I particularly appreciated that Big Frog’s solution depended on her friends and teamwork between the entire community.

This isn’t a Pulitzer Prize winner, but it’s cute, and that certainly counts for a lot when it comes to children’s picture books.
