Peter, Paul and Mary fans will remember the trio's hit song, I'm in Love with a Big Blue Frog. Revisit the late 1960s now with this picture book and accompanying CD that includes three frog songs. Besides the Big Blue Frog classic you'll find Peter Yarrow singing Froggy Went A 'Courtin and Inside sung by Noel Paul Stookey.

The text of the book features lyrics from the title song accompanied by big, bold illustrations by Joshua Brunet that showcase the loveable Blue Frog.

The message of tolerance is as relevant today as it was when this song was first recorded and the light-hearted, humorous manner in which the message is delivered is as fun now as it was in 1967.

Teachers will find this catchy tune, along with the two accompanying ones a delightful way to spice up a classroom music session as will parents who would like to introduce their young ones to one of the iconic musical groups of the 1960s and 1970s. You'll find yourself joining with your child to sing along after sharing this book just one or two times!
