“Froggy’s childlike dialogue and the sound words—‘zook! Zik!’; ‘flop flop . . . splash!’ make this a wonderful read aloud.” —School Library Journal

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
This third book in the "Froggy" series takes on the trials and tribulations of learning how to swim. Simple, bright, cartoon characters illustrate the basic vocabulary text.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-It's now summertime for the hero of Froggy Gets Dressed (Viking, 1992). When an overzealous swing ride tosses him into a pond, his patient mother assures her terrified son that all frogs are great swimmers, and she teaches him how. He is still reluctant until he puts on his flippers, mask, and snorkel. Then he won't get out of the water-all night! Vivid watercolor cartoons add to the humor, showing the comical facial expressions and hilarious beachwear. Froggy's childlike dialogue and the sound words-``zook! zik!''; ``flop flop...splash!''-make this story a wonderful read-aloud. Pair it with Marc Brown's D.W. All Wet (Little, 1988) to promote discussion about overcoming fears.-Betty Teague, Blythe Academy of Languages, Greenville, SC

Froggy's adventures are always funny. He is his own worst enemy in his misadventures. This one is sure to bring a smile to all who read it and our grandchildren love the green one and have most of the series. I would recommend it to anyone, young and old, for a fun romp in Froggy's swamp...flop, flop, flop.

My kids and I love the Froggy series in general. This is a great book for kids who fear swimming - it pretty realistically describes how one learns to get comfortable in the water.

The whole Froggy series is excellent, but this is mine and my son's favorite. Lot's of fun sounds that you can make while reading this. Funny storyline and eye catching illustrations. A must have for preschool through about age 7 or 8. Your child will not be disappointed.
