This nursery rhyme, retold and illustrated by Priscilla Burris, features five frogs that really sparkle with glittery holographic foil and the simple concept of counting backwards from five to one!

Five green and speckled frogs
Sitting on a speckled log
Eating some most delicious bugs..

What happens next will delight preschoolers with a fun, repetitious rhyme and uniquely speckled frogs. One by one, each frog, with brightly sparkled spots, jumps into a pool, leaving behind other frog friends sitting on a log. Then all five frogs join in the pool party!

Priscilla Burris's distinctive frogs put a new spin on an old favorite song. This rhyme teaches children to count down from five to one with the help of frogs that are generously spotted with glittery foil throughout the book.
