Overview

Froggy is going to the doctor for a checkup, and he's feeling a little nervous. 'What if the doctor wants to give me a shot'? he thinks. He worries as he dresses and then he can't sit still in the waiting room. Finally, it's time to go in and change for his exam, but . . . OOOPS! He's forgotten his underwear! And that's just the beginning of Froggy's hilarious doctor visit that ends reassuringly with a gold star and a lollipop.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Froggy's good-natured antics keep the adults around him on their toes as well as healthily amused. (Booklist)
Publishers Weekly
Ten years and 10 titles later (including Froggy Learns to Swim) a favorite amphibian is still kicking in Froggy Goes to the Doctor by Jonathan London, illus. by Frank Remkiewicz. Froggy's nervousness subsides and the check-up turns cheeky when he engages in his trademark antics. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A lightweight addition to the often charming Froggy canon. Froggy has to go for his annual check-up at the doctor's office. At first he's happy about this, for it means a day off from school. Then he remembers that it might also mean a shot and his enthusiasm quickly dampens. It's not long, however, before the rambunctious frog is giving the doctor the Froggy business: making the doctor's hair curl with his dead-fly breath ("I guess I forgot to brush," he admits), yelling into the stethoscope, accidentally delivering a blow to the doctor's chops when his reflexes are tested. The doctor does turn the tables when she brandishes the hypodermic, but she's only kidding and Froggy escapes without puncture. It is all very airy-though energized by Remkiewicz's bustling watercolors-and fairly aimless as well. There is very little meat for kids to chew on in this story, little even by way of entertainment. Froggy is typically good at offering a little direction to young readers-about sportsmanship, for instance, or how not to eat in restaurants-but no such is tendered here, be it positive or negative example, except for a slight introduction to the event. (Picture book. 2-5)

From a kid standpoint, this book is great. From mine, not so much. I always wonder why they have froggy putting underwear on in all the books. I guess that is part of life, but still... I also haven't ever encountered a doctor like the one in this book. Froggy's mom is quite resourceful when he forgets to put on underwear. Kids can relate to Frogilina as she scoots closer to Froggy and he says yuck. There is a lot of yelling in these books. They just don't "flow" for me.
