Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Anderson's art, with its expressive lines full of brightly colored action, are clean visual narratives depicting Joe in red overalls while trying everything with wheels, from skateboard to toy train and toy airplane to baby buggy. The simple rhymed text has the kind of legs that Joe would admire: tireless, and shot through with the music of motion.
Kirkus Reviews

True to the small child's viewpoint of a world full of powerful grownups, the latest uproarious picture book about Joe the frog perfectly captures Joe's frustration as he tries to get attention and join the adults' activities at a family reunion. . . . Illustrated with bright, boisterous line-and-watercolor pictures, the simple rhyming text . . . will draw story-hour listeners as well as beginning readers to a scenario they may recognize.
Booklist, ALA

Beginning readers will enjoy the rollicking rhyme and equally active art. They will also identify with Joe's need for attention and the endless refusals he receives. . . . A book with a lot of child appeal.

Children's Literature - Melissa A. Brown
Joe is an adorable frog who is looking for someone to play with him. His mom is busy; his dad is busy, and his relatives just got here. Uncle Fred is talking, Uncle Drew is cooking, Auntie Lou is too slow, and Uncle Bull is not quite full. Joe is too small for skateboards, too slow for roller skating, too small for go-karts, and Cousin Trent swipes his bike. Suddenly Joe hears someone say, "Come on, Joe. Let's go!" It is Grandma and she and Joe ride off to the ice cream store while Grandpa pushes the wheelchair. This book is written in rhyming couplets that lead the reader through the story. The print is large and the words are simple. Joe and his family are well-illustrated with real-life expressions. This story would be good for any child who likes frogs, or any child who comes from a large family. The original picture book has been transitioned to a Level 1 early reader in the "Green Light Readers" series. It is also identified as Guided Reading I, Reading Recovery 15-16, with and interest level of K-2. Reviewer: Melissa A. Brown

PreS-Gr 1
Joe the frog is back for another outing—this time at a family reunion. When all of his relatives gather for a cookout, he has trouble finding someone to play with as all of the other guests are either too busy or don't want to "go" with little Joe. Finally, he connects with Grandma, who is more than willing to spend some time with her grandson. Beginning readers will enjoy the rollicking rhyme and equally active art. They will also identify with Joe's need for attention and the endless refusals he receives. The book's design gives new readers a nice crisp background for the short and repetitive text. The pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations of the busy frog family pop against the white backgrounds. Anderson has compiled a variety of forms of rolling transportation that children will recognize—roller skates, scooters, baby strollers, skateboards, and, finally, Grandma's wheelchair, which affords Joe a chance to go. A book with a lot of child appeal.
