Ana Martin Larranaga says, "Because I grew up on a farm, I had lots of experience observing and drawing animals and making up little stories about their adventures. I had a pet tortoise, too, who had such funny, childlike expressions that I was forever drawing caricatures of him." Ana's other titles include the Read Me Story Play Mean Green Machine, and several Brand New Readers titles.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K-The wide-mouthed frog sets off to see the world and asks each animal he meets, "Who are you, and what do you eat?" When a crocodile replies that she likes to eat wide-mouthed frogs, the little fellow suddenly becomes a "small narrow-mouthed frog" and hops away. The text is simple but filled with dialogue, making this a natural for toddler time. The story is well paced, featuring new animals on each two-page spread, with nicknames like Big Thumping Feet, Three Long Toes, etc. The bright, lively illustrations have a minimum of detail and show a variety of smiling animals in primary colors. A fun choice for storyhours or one-on-one sharing.
