    9. I loved this book It s about 3 frogs who live on an island together in Rainbow Pond They fight and argue all the time saying the same phrase, It s mine and finally one day a storm comes and floods the pond, forcing them to share one rock to stay alive and survive the storm It taught them that sharing was helpful and it was a better way to live, much peaceful than fighting over things all the time.

    11. This adorable story is about three different frogs that could not learn how to share One day it began to rain and everything flooded the only land they could stay on was a small rock and they learned to share from then on.I was not the biggest fan of the illustrations, but the concept is great I would use this mainly for helping to promote sharing among students.

    14. When I read this book to my daughter, I said, Oh look Someone wrote a book about you, your brother, and your sister It s the perfect sibling rivalry book Siblings will relate to the constant need to claim things as mine And hopefully, they ll relate to the frogs leaning on each other in time of need and to their finding common ground The toad was my favorite, and for me a metaphor for a parent I love the role of the toad at the end, after the rainstorm That was magical.

    15. Lionni is hit and miss for me This one appealed to my didactic side The obvious lesson is presented in a simple, matter of fact way that avoids condescension and will appeal to the youngest of readers.

    27. This is a good story about possessiveness and squabbling I find it interesting that our girls picked out two books that examine sibling relationships and the infighting between them We also read My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother by Patricia Polacco today, and while the two books are very, very different, they both examine the extremes of bickering and getting along that occur within families We enjoyed reading this book together it s tales like this that helps show the best and worst of our fami [...]
