What to Read: I Don’t Want to Be a Frog
I Don’t Want to Be a Frog by Dev Petty and Mike Boldt is such a fun frog-themed read for preschoolers!
From Amazon: “Frog wants to be anything but a slimy, wet frog. A cat, perhaps. Or a rabbit. An owl? But when a hungry wolf arrives—a wolf who HATES eating frogs—our hero decides that being himself isn’t so bad after all.”

Frog or Toad? Video from SciShow Kids
I love a good SciShow Kids YouTube video! They’re short and captivating enough to hold preschoolers’ attention, and the video above breaks down the differences between frogs and toads.
