Fribbet the Frog and the Tadpoles by Carole P. Roman

I received this book from the author for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are my own.

The Synopsis:

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.


This was such sweet book! The family values presented here as well as the learning experience and use of imagination definitely sold this book for me!

The way the siblings talk to one another and the lesson learned at the end, is a fabulous way to bring youngsters together and learn from a good book. The frog’s life-cycle was also nicely illustrated and explained so kiddos get to learn and see what frog’s look like throughout their lives.

I liked how the author showed that even though siblings can be bothersome sometimes (*innocent smiley face*) they are worth every minute of their trouble! The only thing that could have made this book better would be the illustrations, I feel that if the illustrations would have been more “crisp” and the colors deeper, the book would have engaged the younger audience better, but I still loved this book (and so did my 2 year old brother!).

I give it 5 out of 5 stars! Recommended to all parents (or siblings) as a fabulous kid’s book!

The Synopsis:

Kevin and his twin sister Jackie always enjoy going to the beach with their mommy, but Kevin can tell that today will be extra-special. As he and Jackie start building a sandcastle, Kevin sees a fantastic sight: a dolphin, jumping and playing in the ocean. Kevin is known for his vivid imagination, and when he tells Jackie about the dolphin, she doesn’t believe him. As he watches the joyful antics of the dolphin in the sparkling sea, Kevin is convinced that the dolphin is real—even he couldn’t make up something this fantastic!

With warm, comforting language and beautiful illustrations, The Disappearing Dolphins is sure to become a favorite with anyone who cherishes the wonder of the natural world as seen through children’s eyes.

My Review:

The Disappearing Dolphins is a cute book that encourages kids to use their imagination and build strong bonds with their family members.

The author has a unique writing style that is sure to engage the younger audience and the kids will be able to relate well to the children’s actions.

I wasn’t totally impressed with the illustrations present in this book, but you can still see clearly what each picture is and I am sure that young children will still enjoy them.

The heart that the author has for this book gives the book a lightness of attitude that is desirable in children’s books, so overall I rate The Disappearing Dolphins 4 out of 5 stars.
