Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Fronk
Flip-Flop the frog has the role of Frog Number Three in the school play but she is not happy about this. She fears she cannot remember her lines or where she is supposed to go. She tries at rehearsals but cannot seem to say anything. Afterwards, Flip-Flop takes out her crayons and draws an elaborate picture of Mrs. Hopper and her classmates. One day after rehearsal, she is so busy drawing that she does not hear Mrs. Hopper approaching her and Mrs. Hopper sees the drawing of her as a witch. Flip-Flop works up the courage to suggest a better way for her to participate with the play: Flip-Flop does all of the play's scenery! The illustrations give a cartoon-like atmosphere to this story as does the round font. The questions that appear at the end of the book may not be the best prompts for kindergarten readers to consider. It is not obvious that Flip-Flop suffers from stage fright; perhaps she prefers to draw and stay behind the scenes. Preschool and kindergarten readers, especially those that like to draw, may cheer for Flip-Flop; adults can ignore the end page of "Flip-Flop Fun." Reviewer: Elizabeth Fronk
