The Frog With The Big Mouth - Retold By Teresa Bateman
A bragging little frog visits lots of cool animals in the rainforest, trying to prove that he has a bigger mouth than all of them. After nearly being eaten, he decides he had better brag about something else. You could use this book for a character lesson on "pride", following it up with the question, "Did the frog learn his lesson?" This is also a great book for teaching children about South American animals and what they like to eat! The bold illustrations are very beautiful.
