3 out of 5 stars

Bibbit is a frog who has forgotten how to swim. His frog friends try to teach him, but he gets confused. His tadpole baby sister tries to teach him, but he doesn’t have a tail anymore. Bibbit might not be able to swim, but he loves to jump! He jumps to the highest tree to collect a banana. He jumps up to help squirrel collect nuts in the trees. He even jumps high enough to touch a rainbow.

This book is divided into chapters of around 7 pages each. The writing is perfect for children who are just learning to read simple chapter books on their own. Each chapter tells a separate little story about Bibbit and his sister.

Each story is sort of random and doesn’t always have a concrete ending. Some of the plot is left open to the reader’s imagination. The style reminds me a little bit of the Winnie the Pooh books, sort of dreamy and aimless.

The illustrations are watercolor and ink, and are rather messy on purpose. The art style is whimsical. Each illustration is full of bright colors and really brings out the comedy in the story.
