Maisie refuses to eat all her meals. Mum warns her that she will awaken the frog
that lives in her tummy.
“Maisie, don’t you know? There’s a frog in your tummy! If you don’t eat you will
wake him up and then there will be trouble,” said Mum.
“That’s silly,” said Maisie. “Frogs live in ponds, not in people.”
“You’ll see,” said Mum.
While Maisie is at school she finds out what waking this little pest means.
A funny bedtime story with colourful, bright and appealing drawings.
I had a chance to read There's a Frog in my Tummy, to my 7yr old this morning. He chose to listen to me read this book INSTEAD of watching Spongebob. Now that says alot!
As I read it, the first thing that I noticed, was that he was very attentive. My special needs son, listening quietly to me read. The second thing I noticed was that he thought it was very funny, as evidenced by his infectious laughter.
The book itself is quite clever, with a very important message intertwined.
I asked my son what he thought of the book. He said that it was funny and good. He said that his favorite part was
"Ha ha, Maisie has gone potty, " said one boy.
and it's accompanying picture of Maisie's tummy.
He also really liked the castle picture. (She made a castle out of her mashed potatoes, peas and carrots.)
All in all, it's a really cute and funny story with great pictures and a message all parents try to get across to their kids...
Eat all your food!
