Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Froggy's stalling tactics will delight any child who has ever begged to stay up just a few more minutes. When his mother announces that it is bedtime, the frog's familiar response is, "No! I'm not tired." He goes through all the usual bedtime rituals of taking a bath, putting on his pajamas, brushing his teeth, and finding his huggy (a human rag doll), all of which are hidden in the most unlikely places. Before he goes to sleep, he snacks on a bowl of flies, which makes him thirsty for a drink, which he spills. Exhausted, his mother tells him to go to sleep, but he begs for a story. Predictably, she falls asleep reading to him. The tireless amphibian gives her a hug, and finally goes to sleep, too. Sounds like "flop flop flop," "splash splash splash," and "Munch scrunch munch" will encourage children's participation, and youngsters will giggle at all the silly places Froggy searches for the things he needs before bed. Remkiewicz's bold, funny cartoons vary from several small pictures on a white background to full-spread paintings. The art echoes the text and will appeal to children. A great bedtime story.-Elizabeth O'Brien, Queens Borough Public Library, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Kirkus Reviews
The effervescent Froggy is up to usual tricks in his eighth appearance (Froggy Plays Soccer, 1999, etc.). After a hard day of play, he may be "too pooped to pop." But coming wide awake at the magic words "It's time for bed!," he runs his patient mother through a string of delaying tactics, from a snack to a search for a "lost" toy. Each activity, of course, is accompanied by Froggy's classic sound effects: lots of "flop, flop, flop[s]," with an occasional "zwoop" and a "glug, glug, glug" as well. Remkiewicz (Rabbit's Pajama Party, 1999, etc.) depicts the tug-of-war in broadly drawn cartoon scenes, many of which feature mother pointing one way as the pajama-clad Froggy hops another—but it's all plainly more friendly ritual than battle. Mother at last sits down to read a bedtime story and, naturally, falls asleep, "snoring like a horse." Froggy gives her a good-night nuzzle and drifts off. It's a jolly take on a theme as evergreen as the characters, though unlike Peggy Rathmann's 10 Minutes Till Bedtime (1998), it may give Froggy's younger fans some new bedtime maneuvers.

    Great book.

    The Froggy books are great for a 5 year old. My son thinks they are funny and loves to read them each night.

    We love the Froggy series

    Froggy books are so easy and fun to read. In this book, Froggy sounds just like my kids when trying to get them to go to bed. You won't go wrong giving this to any child.

    1 year old son loves this one

    We always read my son boardbooks, but we got this as a christmas gift and my 14 month old son just LOVES it! We read it before every nap and bedtime. As soon as we pull it out he gets the biggest smile and its one of the few books we actually read cover to cover before he gets bored and wants to move on to another book.

    Froggy Goes to Bed

    This book was great. I read it to my brother and he had a smile on his face the whole time. I recomend it for children 4-6 years old.
