    1. With just one adverb on each page, we see the story of a frog's life from egg to adult frog and how the cycle continues. Since there is only the one word, would be great to use in both one on one reading and story times. For story times, read the one word and have the children "read" the story using the pictures to tell you what is happening. Don't miss the rest of the series Nest, Fetch, and Hop. Has been described as a "quiet masterpiece". Highly recommend.

    2. My son Harry became increasingly fascinated by animal lifecycles this year. When I saw Ribbit at the library I knew he had to have it.Each spread of this beautifully illustrated book shows a moment in the lifecycle of a frog paired with a single word. Harry loves pointing to each word, reading it, and then talking about what's happening on each page. I love mostly wordless picture books for kids like Harry who struggle with scripting because they come out differently each time.Ribbit begins with [...]

    3. Cyclical story about a year in the life of a frog, told using Photoshop images and one-word descriptions on each page. The pictures are simple, and help to show how a frog develops from an egg to a tadpole to a froglet, and then all the way through to her adult stage and her own opportunity to create the next generation of frogs. The author includes a lengthy note at the end of the book which includes her inspiration for the book along with more specific information on the life cycle of the frog [...]

    4. With minimal prose and joyful illustrations, acclaimed artist and author Jorey Hurley tells the story of a year in the life of a frog family. From tadpole to froglet to frog, there is more to a frog's life that can be clearly seen. Filled with stunning illustrations and only one word on each spread, Jorey Hurley's vibrant picture book tells the story of a day in the life of a frog family, above and below the pond.Note: Great item for visual learners! This book has very few words, but it could be [...]

    5. I want to love this book, so badly, because the illustrations are great and the nearly-wordless minimalist style is so great, but sometimes these books just really come off as try-hards. Like, they don't feel like they're written for kids at all and the author just really wants to throw it in your face that you didn't "get" their art style. Or maybe I'm just in a "I need storytime books and this is not it" mood and I'll love it tomorrow.

    6. The life of a frog in 15 words (actually 14, because one is repeated twice). A lovely, almost word-less picture book with striking illustrations full of restful greens and vibrant pops of contrasting colors. As a read aloud, have your audience of kiddos tell what's going on and predict what word and action might happen next. The author's note at the end expands on the life cycle of a frog and includes how to tell the difference between a frog, a tree frog and a toad. Loved this one!

    7. With only one word on each page to describe the events taking place, there is a lot of room to talk through this book with readers. Following these leopard frogs through their life cycle is as visually appealing as it is educational, and the additional author's note in the back provide's more information about frogs to (hopefully) help answer some of those burning questions only a child can think of.

    8. Be sure to pair this with "Hop" by Hurley. One word per full double page spread tells the life cycle of a frog. These simple-looking illustrations appeal to me. I say simple-looking because they are done purposefully and everything has a meaning. They have clear lines that also blend - just as animals do in nature. Author's note includes detailed info about 'true frogs', and leopard frogs (the ones shown in the book) being one example.

    9. Like Jorey Hurley's Nest, Ribbit is a one-word-per-page delight. Showing the life cycle of a frog in simple words and illustrations, a little more explanation might be needed for little ones to fully grasp the concepts, though.

    10. This book was on a recommendation shelf at my public library. It has wonderful illustrations and each page layout is captivating. One word captures the scene on each spread and follows a little frog in as it moves around its habitat. My daughter (6-months) loved the colorful illustrations.

    11. Meh, kind of boring, one word per page, most focus on illustrations, which are good, but I didn't love them or it.

    12. I think this is a great intro for young young kids into the concepts of growth and the life cycle of frogs, but I don't like it for storytime.

    13. Perfect mix of information and story for a young reader. Great pair with nosy crow’s Franklin Frog app. Would work well in a pre-k story time.

    14. A picture book about the lifecycle of a frog. Great illustrations in this simple book. One word is used to describe the illustration - grow, climb, leap, hide, etc.

    15. Very simple, 1 word descriptions of different phases of a frog's life. Great for a toddler ST about frogs.

    16. A cute concept where the life of a frog is described in one word stages. Any age group appropriate but one on one will love this.

    17. A look at a frog's life cycle in digitally illustrated spreads that are accompanied by carefully selected words to sum up the process. An author's note follows the story and gives information about the inspiration behind the creation of this book as well as more detail about a frog's life cycle and the types of frog's appearing throughout the book.Highly recommended for Toddler and PreK.

    18. A tadpole emerges from a cluster of eggs and develops into a frog in this stunningly designed picture book. Thoughtful pacing of one word per page invites young readers to study the details in the pictures more deeply. The text is simple, yet remarkably informative- as is the author's note. Bold, double page illustrations in rich colors will attract young readers, and are also perfect for sharing with groups. Reviewer 28
