This book can easily be made into a predicting lesson. Froggy runs outside to play in the snow but every time he begins playing he notices he is missing either his pants, mittens, hat, shirt, scarf.

I really enjoyed this book! It is a great text for beginning readers because the language is very simple, yet descriptive. For example one-page states, “He tugged on his mittens-ZUM! And flopped outside into the snow-FLOP FLOP FLOP.” This helps younger readers visualize what is happening in the story! The book was also silly and engaging, as the main character leaves his house without underwear on and his mom embarrasses him. The main message in this book was the importance of following routines.

The Froggy series is one of my favorite series. As a child my grandpa would read these stories to my sisters and I. Froggy gets dressed is a book that expresses humor, and in my opinion, could be a good book to use to work on sequencing with students. The language of the book is patterned. Froggy wakes up one morning and realizes there is snow on the ground, and he cannot wait to go outside and play. The only problem is every time he goes outside he forgets one item of clothing. The language becomes repetitive because every time Froggy has to come back inside to get another item of clothing he must first take off the layers he has already put on. The author also uses a type of sound effects. For example, “buttoned up his shirt- zut! zut! zut! Then he snapped on his coat—znap! Put on his hat—zat! Tied on his scarf—zwit! Each of these sounds effects makes the story more engaging for the reader. The student can participate in the book by making the sounds effects as they are revealed in the story. In my opinion there is not a central message to the story. I think the point of the story is to be a humorous and be an interactive book for the reader. ( )

We loved Froggy! And as a parent I love the literary value of this story for preschoolers with its repetitions and sequencing. My 4-year-old kept repeting the sequencing long after the story was read.
Great job Jonathan London! ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0140544577, Paperback)

One morning Froggy wakes up and discovers snow--glorious snow! Of course he immediately wants to frolic outside, but his sleepy mother reminds him that frogs are supposed to sleep all winter. "Wake up when the snow melts," she calls out from her cozy bed. But Froggy insists. So off he goes after putting on his socks--"zoop," his boots--"zup," his hat--"zat," and his scarf--"zwit." The playful sound effects are perfect for read-aloud merriment and the watercolor illustrations by Frank Remkiewicz (Horrible Harry) are comic-strip silly. As soon as Froggy gets outside his mother calls out to remind him to put on his pants. This, as any child knows, means laboriously pulling off all footwear. "Zwit, zat, zup, zut." Then he forgets his coat and it's more "zut, znap, zum." And then--horror of horrors!--his mother yells out in front of all his animal playmates, "Froggy, your underwear!" (Which of course elicits giggles.) Ultimately, the on- and off-again dressing is too exhausting for Froggy and he winds up right back where he belongs. Good night, Froggy. For more adventures of Jonathan London's Froggy, explore Froggy Goes to School, Froggy Learns to Swim, and Froggy's First Kiss. (Ages 2 to 6) --Gail Hudson
