Board Book Review: Ribbit

There seems to be a bit more suspense and higher stakes in certain parts with the movie. Perhaps that is what it is. Plus, Danny DeVito is fantastic.

Review

This is one of the prettiest books Madeline owns.

I picked it up at the store because it absolutely popped off the shelf. The color combination is fantastic. And it has definitely had an impact on Maddie as well. She goes for it so often, I now know this one by heart, and just recite it when she decides I’m flipping the pages too slowly and takes over herself.

My husband says this one is weird, but I say he doesn’t know what he’s talking about, because it’s super cute, and very fun to read, and it does what it’s supposed to do: engage Madeline. She loves pointing at the pig. And I love looking at the pages. Seriously, the artwork is so pretty, and I find myself trying to figure out how it was drawn/painted.

Aside from all that, the story itself is a good one. It’s about friendship and acceptance and learning to see things differently. I have read it so many times, but I haven’t grown tired of it. And neither has Madeline! {We read it three times during the photoshoot}.
