Books, Glorious Books!!! We love them!!! Sharing books with my kids is very special and bedtime is always a time my husband and I read aloud to them. A book we recently read was Ribbit! by Rodrigo Folgueira and it was a big hit with a very nice lesson about friends and diversity.
Ribbit! starts with a mystery of a little pink pig that is sitting on a rock in the frog pond. No one can figure out why and all the animals really try. At first since all he says is Ribbit! the frogs think maybe he is there to mock them. In the end it’s determined that the pig is there because he wants to make new friends. By the time this determination is made, the pig is no longer in the pond but found in a tree sitting and tweeting happily. Soon he is joined by all kinds of new animals friends who are happy to sit together and tweet.
This book shows kids that it doesn’t matter how different we are, we can all be friends. It’s a great message for kids and a charming book with adorable illustrations by Poly Bernatene. My son especially loved when the frog was angry and it showed him gnashing a mouthful of white teeth. We laughed so hard to see a frog with teeth! Ribbit! is a great book to share with your little ones.
