Despite this, the frog wants to change the rules of the game and rearrange where the animal should sit. For instance, the frog says that the dog should sit on a log rather than sitting on the frog. In return, the dog asks the frog where the bears should sit, and he responds that they should sit on the stairs.This picture book is intended for younger kids because they list funny things that each animal should sit on.
