SING, FROGGIE, SING (CANTA, RANA, CANTA) by Carolyn Dee Flores, Pinata Books, 2013.
Pinata, a division of Arte Publico, gives readers a cumulative story/song reminiscent of "there's a hole in the bottom of the sea." There is a frog in the pond. When he croaks, a fly comes by to hush his mouth. When the fly buzzes, then, there is a spider to hush it, and so on. Eventually, a baby, mother, father, and grandmother round out the hushing. Music and lyrics are provided in the back mater of the book.
