Can You Make a Scary Face by Jan Thomas

Can You Make a Scary Face is a fantastic interactive book to read to children. Don’t expect any fancy illustrations; they are simple with solid colors. The book involves a ladybug asking children (the reader) if they can do certain things such as wiggle their nose and do the chicken dance. The bug is having fun getting the reader to do all kinds of tricks and silly things when a giant hungry frog comes into the picture. It is up to the reader to make a scary face to get the frog to leave. This is a fun read-a-loud and one that I would suggest to any parent or storyteller. I can’t wait to read it to my library class. Read this book to help get the sillies out of kids or even possibly make them sillier! Haha

This book was a huge hit with my 3-year-old son! We were both laughing hysterically as we did what the little bug asked us to do. The pictures are perfectly bold and colorful for young children.
