Frog and Bunny are best friends. RIBBIT, RABBIT! They do everything together, like fight monsters (ZIP IT, ZAP IT!). And even though they get in fights sometimes-YIP IT, YAP IT!-they always make up in the end.

Ribbit, Rabbit features an effortlessly clever text that, in less than 150 words, captures the ups and downs of young friendships. Combined with adorably hip and fresh illustrations and an irresistible package, Ribbit, Rabbit is the perfect choice for the youngest of readers (quoted from Goodreads).

Ribbit, Rabbit is a wonderful story about friendship. It's one that young children will relate to well, as Ribbit and Rabbit have their ups and downs. One moment they're playing together nicely, and the next they're fighting over a toy they both want. In the end, they both realize that it's far better to share and be nice than to fight with your friends.

I enjoyed reading
Ribbit, Rabbit to my children, and they enjoyed the story. Any story that my son can read along with and makes my children laugh out loud gets huge props from me! Ribbit, Rabbit is a great book Kindergarten age children can read, and one preschoolers will enjoy as the rhyming words, and the interaction between the friends is one that draws them in.
The illustrations give the story the perfect feel. I really loved the coloring the and simple pictures.

This is sure to be a hit in our house for years to come. I would highly recommend picking up
Ribbit, Rabbit. It's a great edition for your in home library, preschool room and even Kindergarten class.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
