Four Freckled Frogs: A Book about Consonants - Ruth Thomson Each page focuses on a single sound combination (such as st, tr, nk, etc.). The sound is shown with: a sentence at the top of the page uses several words with the sound combination; a large central picture includes images of things that include the sound; the large picture is surrounded by smaller individual pictures of those items; and 2 questions at the bottom of the page ask questions about the pictures (answers are words that include the sound). Illustrations are bright and colorful, depicting wild adventures. Color is used to highlight the sound combinations within the text.
