'The Frog with the Big Mouth' by Teresa Bateman is a story that will tickle anyone's funny bone. In this book's delightful verse and vivid illustrations, the young reader will find the antics of the Big Mouth Frog amusing. Here, we are introduced to many unusual creatures of the rain forest. We follow the Big Mouth Frog as he sets out to amaze and impress his fellow inhabitants with the news that he has eaten the BIGGEST fly in the world. He is positive that this amazing accomplishment makes him superior to them. In turn, each creature shows very little interest in the frog's bragging and continues on its way. But their failure to be impressed does not deter Frog from venturing further into the forest. Deep in the rainforest, The Big Mouth Frog, may or may not, find something that makes him a little more humble.

Starting 2nd Grade can be a little scary, especially if the nice teacher from last year was repaced by a new teacher named Ms. Light. Amber Brown is excited about 2nd grade but is still worried about her new teacher. 'Will she like me?', 'Will she think that my backpack is for babies?', and 'Will she give us lots of homework?' Read to find out if 2nd grade will be an 'enlightening' experience for Amber!
