Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Froggy wakes up while it's snowing and gets dressed to go out and play. Each time Froggy gets outside, his mother calls "Frrrooggyy!" to remind him of something he forgot to wear. Froggy hops back into the house, gets undressed, redresses with the missing article of clothing, then hops back outside. After his mother calls to tell him forgot his underwear, Froggy is so exhausted that he climbs back into bed to sleep for the rest of winter. The silly sounds punctuating Froggy getting dressed will have toddlers in stitches.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Abundant onomatopoeia and dialogue betwen a young frog and his mother make this straightforward story a good choice for reading aloud. The rambunctious Froggy has more pressing pursuits on his mind than hibernating through the winter--``Snow! Snow! I want to play in the snow!'' Accompanied by kid-pleasing sound effects zoop! zup! zat! he excitedly dons cold-weather gear and ``flop flop flop''s outdoors. His mother, however, quickly points out that he has forgotten a few items; he returns to the house repeatedly for such essential apparel as pants, a shirt and a coat--and his long johns. One memorable illustration has him tugging a red union suit up to his green chin. The simplicity of London's tale is amusingly complemented by Remkiewicz's Greedy anna ; The Last Time I Saw Harris typically colorful, playful take on a frisky protagonist. Any youngster who has ever bundled up for wintertime play will surely laugh out loud over this addled amphibian's constant undressing and dressing. Ages 2-6. Sept.
School Library Journal
PreS-1-- Instead of taking his winter nap, young Froggy wants to play in the snow. Unfortunately, each time he goes outside he is called back because he has forgotten an item of clothing. Finally, he is so exhausted from dressing and undressing that he goes to sleep for the winter. London's use of repetition should appeal to children; they'll surely remember the funny sounds Froggy's clothing makes: ``he buttoned up his shirt-- zut! zut! zut! Then he Snapped on his coat-- znap! Put on his hat-- zat! '' These noises may turn the chore of donning clothes into a game as young audiences try to imitate the text. Remkiewicz's colorful cartoonlike illustrations are uncluttered and follow Froggy's progress each time he ventures out. This entertaining book shows youngsters that everyone has trouble getting dressed--even frogs! --Rachel Fox, Port Washington Pub . Lib., NY

    FRROOGGYY ROCKS!

    When I taught pre-K years ago, my students LOVED Froggy. I promptly added the books to my collection for the child I would have someday. Now my son is here I've recently started reading them to him. He can't get enough. At 22 months he's trying to 'read' the book on his own. (He'll open the book to where mom is calling and say 'Fwooggyy', etc.) We read together every night and he actually sits still all the way to the end.

    Fantastic and Funny

    My five year old came home with this one from the library at school. We read it and he immediately asked me to read it again! A very cute story with intelligent humor for your Kindergarten child. We have read it 5 times in the last two days. It's going to be one of those books he will remember when looks back as an adult.

    Great for Fives!

    This book really appeals to the sense of humor of a five-year-old boy. I've read it over and over to my son and he thinks it's hilarious every time.
