Big Frog Can't Fit In by Mo Willems

This is a really unique pop-up-book by one of my favourite children's authors Mo Willems. The idea behind the story is that Frog is so big that the book simply can't hold her in. She wishes she was smaller or more bendable, but nothing she did would help her fit inside the book. But with the help of many of her smaller friends they finally discovered a way to help Big Frog - they made the book BIGGER! The story is simple, and some of the pop-up figures a bit hard to get folded up again, but I every child I've used it with has loved the impossibility of Big Frog's problem. They try to figure out how to fit their bodies into small spaces, so it's actually a great story to promote all kinds of problem solving four young children!
