Wake up—it’s springtime in the swamp! As 999 young frogs awaken, they panic to find that all of the other animals are still asleep. First they wake the biggest frog... then the tortoise, the lizard, and the ladybugs. But when they hop down a hole and all pull together, they find someone they don’t want to wake—a big, long snake. Don’t wake him up! Luckily for the frogs, the tortoise carefully carries him away.

Given To Me For An Honest Review
999 Frogs Wake Up by Ken Kimura is a book for every child's bookshelf. It is about the frogs that plan to
wake everyone up for spring. A hungry snake wakes up but the frogs assure him that he can sleep as
long as he wants. Your child(ren) will laugh and enjoy this book. They will love the humor that it has.
The illustrations and bright and clear. If you wish for a great book that your child will love or you
classroom will enjoy this is the book. I gave it 5 stars but it should have more. I highly recommend it to
everyone and anyone with a child or works with children.
