Stern, E. (2003). I saw a bullfrog. New York: Random House.

Compound and two-part animal names (like bullfrog, catfish, dragonfly) are shown in fantastical illustrations, along with a first-person questioning and commenting on each “animal” within a four-line rhyming poem.
The last few pages of the book contain factual descriptions and information for each animal.

Curriculum Connection:
Science: first graders studying animals use this book to generate interest and connect to the science unit. After researching animals, this book is read aloud. Then students get to be creative! Putting two animal pictures together, the first graders name their new animals and describe how they would act differently with their new bodies. Idea borrowed from Children’s Literature in Action by Sylvia M. Vardell, pg. 237.

Grades: K-4
