We Are Not Frogs!
Publisher: Picture Squirrels
Alice and Jago are playing in granny's garden one day when they find lots of toads in the long grass. But, disappointingly, toads don't jump - and that's what Alice is really excited about.
Fortunately, the chief toad tells the children where jumpy frogs can be found, in return for being taken to the nice muddy ditch at the bottom of the garden.
This book is typeset in a dyslexia-supportive font, and the counting activities on every spread are geared towards encouraging parents and children to explore the story together.
As well as BookTrust President Michael Morpurgo's lovely nature tale (a helpful source of knowledge about the differences between frogs and toads!), Sam Usher's sensitive and funny illustrations bring this story hoppingly alive.
