Staff Reviews

Froggy’s journey from hydrophobe to certified amphibian just might make a future Olympic swimmer out of you. Yes, I was a stubborn, prideful child, and yes, it took some convincing to get me into the water. While I nevertheless grew up into a stubborn and prideful adult, I love to swim now, and when I rediscovered the Froggy series yesterday, I shed a single tear in the staff break room. Froggy, c’est moi!

— Jack K


Zzzziiiinnngggg splash!
Everyone’s favorite frog learns to swim!
Frogs are supposed to be great swimmers. "Not me!" says Froggy, who's afraid of the water. But with a little encouragement, some practice, and the help of a silly song or two, Froggy becomes an expert frog-kicker!

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