The Wide Mouthed Frog by Keith Faulkner
This pop-up book teaches the effects of bragging in a manner illustrated visually for the child. The wide mouthed frog is so proud of what he can eat that he goes around asking everyone else what they eat and then explaining that he eats flies. Eventually he comes across the crocodile that eats wide mouthed frogs. At this point the frog is no longer so proud of his wide mouth and splashes off. Pop-up books always fascinate children and this one remained in good condition for a long time until my daughter somehow managed to take it to bed with her.
