Now in Spanish, a Level 1 Green Light Reader edition starring frisky Joe the Frog in a funny, fast-moving, family-oriented story.
It’s the Frog family reunion, and all of Joe’s relatives are together. Everyone’s having fun except Joe. With so many cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents around, you’d think somebody would play with Joe, but everyone says he’s too big, too small, too fast, or too slow. No matter where Joe turns, all he hears is “no” . . . until a very special guest arrives!
This Spanish language edition is perfect for beginning readers and their families to enjoy together. Bright illustrations feature Joe’s mishaps with all kinds of things that go, go, go!
Anderson's art, with its expressive lines full of brightly colored action, are clean visual narratives depicting Joe in red overalls while trying everything with wheels, from skateboard to toy train and toy airplane to baby buggy. The simple rhymed text has the kind of legs that Joe would admire: tireless, and shot through with the music of motion.
True to the small child's viewpoint of a world full of powerful grownups, the latest uproarious picture book about Joe the frog perfectly captures Joe's frustration as he tries to get attention and join the adults' activities at a family reunion. . . . Illustrated with bright, boisterous line-and-watercolor pictures, the simple rhyming text . . . will draw story-hour listeners as well as beginning readers to a scenario they may recognize.
Beginning readers will enjoy the rollicking rhyme and equally active art. They will also identify with Joe's need for attention and the endless refusals he receives. . . . A book with a lot of child appeal.
