I enjoyed this book for the ability to do different voices as I read it aloud to my three year old cousin while moving the mouth of Wendy to match the words. He was initially more receptive to this title than he was to Calm Down Boris! although I think that is only because with Boris he hadn't seen that format before and so was a bit hesitant. He did end up loving interacting with Boris and Wendy.

Wendy the frog thinks she is the best and smartest animal in the jungle. She acts bored with all of the animals she meets and puts them down. Until she meets the squid who eats wide mouth frogs who think they are better than everyone else like Wendy. I had this book read to me and I really liked it because it is a 3D book.

This story focuses on an egotistical frog named Wendy. She thinks that she is top of the line until she meets the squid. Then, she learns her lesson and stops bragging about herself. It shows the effects of bragging about oneself and how annoying it is for everyone else. Good character-building resource.

This story uses a 3D puppet to tell the story and focuses on an selfish, spoiled frog named Wendy who thinks she is the best around, until she meets a squid. It shows the negative effects of being cocky and caring only about yourself and how it hurts everyone else.
This would be a great book to teach in Kindergarten about the differences between animals, the characteristics of animals, and similarities between different animals. It is also a funny story about a snobby frog who gets what's coming to her.

This 3D book follows a cocky frog named Wendy who thinks she is the best around but quickly learns that it hurts others feelings when she acts like this. This would be a good book if you were having a bullying or clique problem in your classroom.

This would be a good book to show that sometimes over confiedence is a bad thing. This book also uses a puppet attached to the book to help tell the story. This would be a great book for the class room as a free read book too.

This unique picture book has a 3D puppet that that reader uses to tell the story. The story follows the fabulous main character as she learns the lesson of humility.
