Today we have a review for little ones…

Ribbit Rabbit – Candace Ryan

Frog and Bunny are the best of friends. Ribbit, rabbit. Rabbit, ribbit. They do everything together – like fight monsters! Ribbit, rabbit. Zip it, zap it. And even though they don’t always get along …Ribbit, rabbit. Trip it, trap it. They always make up in the end.

This is a story book about a Frog and a Bunny who are the best of friends. It is written in a unique style of a line of story followed by a rhyme based on Ribbit Rabbit, such as Dip it, Dab it or Wibbit Wabbit. The pictures are simple cartoon style with muted colours and illustrate the story well.

The story is based around a day that Frog and Bunny fall out over a toy and how they work out that it is much more fun to be friends and share toys. It is a lovely simple message, but one all parents and kids will relate to and is a useful tool for discussing friendship and sharing.
It is a simple story with repetition which my 3 year old always likes and it also held my 5 year old’s interest as she liked trying to say the rhyming sections.

Thanks, Wendy, and thanks to Bloomsbury Children’s Books for sending us a copy.
