And now for a fun 'Green' book, continuing our Irish theme...
Fribbet's gone missing! The crew searches for the excitable frog and finally find him troubled and crying in the stern. Fribbet is very upset, and it's up to Captain No Beard and the crew to find out what's wrong. Fribbet the Frog and the Tadpoles is another great voyage into problem solving and friendship, as well as an adventurous trip into the imagination. Join the Captain No Beard and his friends as they learn the value of sharing our troubles with others and that help is always there when we need it.
This is another fun entry into the Captain No Beard series! Miss Grace thought it was great that this new book from Carole arrived in time for St Patrick's Day, as Fribbett is naturally green, and that is pretty much ALL we've been and will see through St Patrick's day in our house! lol It is a fun story about not shouldering your burdens alone and about accepting a new sibling, even when they may be messy and loud. Miss Grace had to laugh at the end of the book, as one of her best friends has a 2 yr old brother and they were blessed with a baby girl late last year, and she has told her how loud and crazy things can be, but she wouldn't trade them for the world.
This is a fun book to get a conversation started about a new sibling on the way, or one that is being adopted. It is easy for kids to understand, and I can see quite a few siblings getting nicked tadpole or Fribbett, after their older siblings read this book! It would also be a great addition to their Easter baskets!
