Overview

This nursery rhyme, retold and illustrated by Priscilla Burris, features five frogs that really sparkle with glittery holographic foil and the simple concept of counting backwards from five to one!

Five green and speckled frogs/sitting on a speckled log/ eating some most delicious bugs . . .

What happens next will delight preschoolers with a fun, repetitious rhyme and uniquely speckled frogs. One by one, each frog--with brightly sparkled spots--jumps into a pool, leaving behind other frog friends sitting on a log. Then all five frogs join in the pool party!

Priscilla Burris's distinctive frogs put a new spin on an old favorite song. This rhyme teaches children to count down from five to one with the help of frogs that are generously spotted with glittery foil throughout the book.

Five frogs eat bugs as they sit on a log, but one by one they jump into the cool pool until all are gone.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In the familiar format of "Ninety-nine Bottles of Beer on the Wall," we spend a warm, summer day with five green and sequin-speckled frogs. One-by-one, they migrate from a log on the grass to a large, inflatable backyard pool ("where it was nice and cool"), leaving one fewer frog behind. Before heading to the pool, our five frogs hunt for just the right clothes and accessories. They parade there in loud swim wear, flip-flops, hats, bows, sunglasses, snorkels and other bathing necessities. Basking on the log in the hot sun, each frog enjoys a bag of "most delicious bugs" before taking the plunge into the water. As with most books in this style, the text is monotonous, however the illustrations are adorable. The frogs have loads of personality and there are lots of fun details to enjoy. Decorative flies adorning the front and back inside covers are a clever touch. The metallic speckles add razzmatazz throughout. Younger children will enjoy the rhymes and pictures. Older kids can reinforce their understanding of simple subtraction. 2003, Scholastic,

School Library Journal
PreS-This cheerful version of a familiar song never quite adds up to anything really new or special. The book features silvery, metallic holographic spots la Marcus Pfister's "Rainbow Fish" books (North-South). The sparkles will likely appeal to young listeners, as will the smiling, decidedly anthropomorphic frogs togged out in brightly colored bathing suits. But unless the adults reading the book already know the tune, they won't be able to "sing aloud" as the music is not included. Slight variations in the text may present additional barriers to potential singers. The usual refrain ("Yum, yum") has been replaced with phrases matched to the decreasing number of frogs (from "Yum Yum Yum Yum Yum" to "Gulp"). This changes the familiar rhythm, as does the final line, which also has been altered. The book is visually engaging. Star sunglasses, a perky pink bow, and other accessories allow listeners to differentiate among the frogs as they snack and swim. The final visual joke is the revelation that the cool blue water into which these frogs have been happily jumping is actually a wading pool. The sunny, summery appeal of Burris's illustrations may allow these five frogs to find a place in some collections, but most won't be missing much if they choose to skip this outing.-Lisa Dennis, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Every children's librarian and kindergarten teacher worth their salt knows ten versions of this finger rhyme. Here five speckled frogs sit on a speckled log eating delicious bugs (out of sandwich bags); one by one they hop into the pool, where it is cool, until there are none. Burris (I Love You All Day Long, p. 1701, etc.), in her first solo effort, offers frogs that are cartoon cute, perhaps a little more frog-like than Jonathan London's Froggy. Their bathing suits and bows indicate they are a mix of genders, but none of them seem to remember their manners; bugs fall out of their mouths in nearly every watery spread. Observant listeners will be quick to point out that in the "three" illustration only one frog is actually sitting on the log. Chalk that up to froggish summer exuberance. There is nothing innovative or particularly unique here, but toddlers especially will be drawn to the book since the frog speckles and fly wings are foil stamped. This is worth a look if you're in need of cheery counting books, but it's not a must. (Picture book. 1-4)
