Synopsis: Fribbet's gone missing! The crew searches for the excitable frog and finally find him troubled and crying in the stern. Fribbet is very upset, and it's up to Captain No Beard and the crew to find out what's wrong.
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.
Captain No Beard watches as the crew cleans the ship or rather makes a bigger mess of things when he realizes Fribbet was missing. The crew searches the ship and finally finds him upset and crying. Wanting to be good friends, they offer their support. Fribbet begins telling them about the tadpoles that have taken over his pond and how they hog all of mom and dad's time. Sharing his worries does make him feel a bit better, but now he's nervous about being a big brother. Can the crew help Fribbet find the courage he needs?
Fribbet the Frog and the Tadpoles is a wonderful story of friendship. I love how the crew and Captain No Beard encourage Fribbet to share his troubles with them and how they work together to help him face his fears. The story also inspires children to use their imagination just like Captain No Beard and his crew as they venture into the unknown on a ship that doubles as a bed and carpet that transforms into the sea. The vibrant and lively illustrations will leave children giggling with delight.
I highly recommend picking up a copy.
