DESCRIPTION:

Fribbet the Frog and the Tadpoles is another great voyage into problem solving and friendship, as well as an adventurous trip into the imagination.

Join the Captain No Beard and his friends as they learn the value of sharing our troubles with others and that help is always there when we need it.

MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:

I have had the pleasure to review many of Carole P. Roman's books.  These books are so sweet, and always have a good message with them.  The illustrations are magnificent, and so much fun for kids.

In this book we learn how to share problems with friends, and the importance of family.  I love these sweet books.  I love that each one comes with some kind of lesson for kids.  I love the imagination that goes on in Captain No Beard's head.  

If you have kids and they like pirates this would be a fun series to share with them.  Not only do they go on adventures, but they learn valuable lessons as well.

REVIEW #2

DESCRIPTION:

It's business as usual on the Flying Dragon. Their mission is to find a flag for the ship. Captain No Beard sighs, "Being a captain is hard work," as he watches the busy crew preparing the vessel for their next adventure.

Polly is giving out pretzels; Linus is polishing a lamp. Matie is cracking coconuts, Cayla is stuffing holes, and Hallie is swabbing the deck. High overhead, trouble is brewing, and it is not the weather.

Mongo does not want any help from the newest crew member, and it is creating a hurricane of a mess on board.

The team must come together and find a task that will fit Zachary without interfering with their own fun. On the way, they acquire a flag that will unite them as both friends and crew.

Join the problem-solving crew of the Flying Dragon as they find a flag for their ship and a job for Zach.
 

MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:

Again, another sweet story by Carole P. Roman.  In this installment we learn the importance of including everyone.

Like I have stated previously, I love these sweet books.  They are so great for kids.  I love the illustrations.  I love the imagination that goes on in the stories.  

This book teaches us about coming together, working as a team, and including everyone.  Such great lessons for kids to learn now.  

I love children's books.  They are always so sweet, and so much fun to read.  I have big kids now, so they kind of laugh at me when I am reading children's books, but I don't care.  I love the feeling they give me while reading.  Helps me remember why I love children so much.  Makes me wish my kids were little again.  (for a minute ;) ).
