Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanne Javid
Meet Frog and all his friends in this two-tale beginning chapter book for newly independent readers. There is Raccoon, Possum, Squirrel, Chameleon, Rabbit, and Little Jumping Mouse, some of the cutest critters ever found in a story, especially a story with thirty-six beautiful art illustrations found throughout the thirty-seven numbered pages. In the first tale, Frog and the Green Dragon, a train is mistaken for a ferocious green dragon. After all, it has one giant shining eye, no legs, a long stringy body and leaves a silver track, like a snail track only much, much bigger. After watching and conversing, the friends are convinced they have seen a dragon but since they saw only people inside the dragon, they believe they are safe as this is a dragon which only eats people and is not looking for critters. Frog and the Big River Rescue is the title of the second tale which tells the story of Frog and his friends picnicking at Big River. A fun time is being had by all until a little possum ventures to close to the water, slips and falls in. Frog rescues the little one and is hailed as a hero by his friends. This title is book six, part of the “Frog and Friends” series. Other titles include: Frog and Friends, Party at the Pond, Best Summer Ever, Frog’s Flying Adventure, Outdoor Surprises, and Frog’s Lucky Day. The publisher’s website offers activity sheets and pages, information about beginning reading strategies and story introductions as well as tips to help children learn to read. For teachers, librarians and parents, the book comes leveled by standards for guided reading. Reviewer: Suzanne Javid; Ages 5 to 8.

Gr 1–4—This latest installation in the series contains two stand-alone stories about Frog's heroic deeds. In "Frog and the Green Dragon," Raccoon comes to Frog because she can't sleep. Something in the night makes a big, loud noise like thunder that scares her. Frog leads his friends to discover a huge, long dragon with one eye traveling on a track. Readers know the "dragon" is a train by the illustrations, but Frog and his friends use their animal logic to alleviate their fears. In "Frog and the Big River Rescue," Frog thinks quickly and risks his life to save one of Possum's babies who falls in the river. Beginning independent readers and fans of the series may find this title exciting and rewarding. For teachers, librarians, and parents, the book comes leveled by standards for guided reading.—Lindsay Persohn, University of South Florida, Tampa
