Noisy Frog Sing-Along by John Himmelman

Publisher: Dawn Publications

Publication Date: September 1, 2013

Recommended Grades: K-2

When frogs get together, they love to sing! They fill their big, bulgy throat pouch with air and sing out loud. Some peep, some trill, some growl, some creek, and some go WAAH, WAAH, WAAH! It’s a chorus that happens near almost every pond and stream.   

Lesson Idea:


Six Traits: Word Choice  Read aloud Noisy Frog Sing-Along.  Use this book as a mentor text for word choice.  How does the author use onomatopoeia and different font sizes to draw the reader in?  Students could create their own book about different animals and the sounds they make, using this book as a model.  At the end of the book, the author shares information about each type of frog he wrote about.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher for review.
