A wonderful read from my childhood, one I’d certainly suggest for other youngsters. Whilst it is not my all-time favourite childhood read I can still recall all the details of this one meaning it certainly left a lasting impression upon my young mind.

And isn’t that what we want with children’s books, for them to leave a positive lasting impression?

I won this book from Goodreads' FirstReads program, and am so glad I did. It's based on the popular children's song of the same name.

My children love this book and likely will spend lots of tim ...more

With awesome illustrations, 5 little speckled frogs shows children math in a sing-song way. This book can be used in early lower school math lessons as a read aloud with an attached lesson.

Five Little Speckled Frogs
Illustrated by Nikki Smith

Whenever I hear the song Five Little Speckled Frogs I immediately go back to when I was a kid and my Daddy would play it on his guitar and I would sing along. When I saw that Nikki had illustrated the song in a book, my hand shot up and hollered ME, ME.. I would love to review it! Yes I have some personal attachment to the song

Nikki took a simple kids song and created a splashing good time! Her illustrations are simple, yet fun. The frogs on t
