Gr. 2. Learning to read is fun when riddles are involved. If kids don't look carefully, they might think this is about rabbits, but no, that sound is "ribbit," the noise that frogs make. Some of the riddles are funny: "What game do little frogs play? Leap people." A few need some advanced language skills: "What happened when the frog left his car in the NO Parking zone? His car was toad." The distinctive art, cell-vinyl on layers of acetate, has a shimmery, almost fuzzy look that catches the eye--and the jokes. Part of the series that includes Sheepish Riddles (1996) and Kitty Riddles (2000). Ilene Cooper

Kindergarten-Grade 3-"Toadally cool." That's how beginning readers will describe this collection of puns, riddles, and jokes related to frogs and toads. Among the punniest are: "What do you call froggy sandals? Open-toad shoes," and "Which froggy was a Viking? Leap Eriksson." Bender's paintings perfectly complement the humor and provide some visual clues for new readers.
