This is great picture book that deals with the struggle younger children go through of how to behave when you are out to eat. Froggy’s parents are celebrating their anniversary and going out for dinner as a family. Froggy thought he was getting burger and flies but then discover the restaurant is was fancy. As much as Froggy tries he just can’t sit still and ends up making a mess.

Comprehensive Strategy: After reading the story to the class, the teacher can lead a discussion on the right and wrong ways to behave when out in public.

Froggy eats out was an interesting children’s book to read. I enjoyed the illustrations occurring throughout the story. They were very detailed and on each page, it described what the text was telling. This gives the reader a better understanding for what the author is trying to say. For example, each illustration is thorough and keeps the reader interested. The main idea of the children’s book is manners and what is correct and incorrect about them. Last, the texts features set the readers attention for the book. The different text fonts, sizes, and the punctuation used throughout the story allows the readers to get excited and interested by what it brings to the eye. For example, whenever Froggy’s mom or dad yells out his name, it is colorful, bold and all in caps to show their tone in their voice. ( )

This book talked about manners at a fancy restaurant. Froggy had none. He was hungry, had no patience, and was not sure how to act in public leaving his parents embarrassed. ( )

Froggy Eats Out is one among many in the Froggy series. Froggy books are usually focus on common events that younger children are going through. This story would be best for a younger elementary grade. In this story Froggy goes out to dinner with this family. Froggy goes through all the experiences of going to eat. He starts out at home being very hungry searching for food. His mother reminds him that they are going out to eat, so Froggy goes upstairs and gets on his best clothes. Froggy’s uses his manner throughout dinner, be neat, be quiet, and don’t put your feet on the table. Froggy sees a friend and gets embarrassed when he sees a friends and he makes a scene knocking everything on off of the table. The family realizes that a fast food places is better suited for their family. This book has familiar illustrations from other Froggy books which a lot of children are familiar with. The color are mostly green and read, and they pictures look drawn and water colored. In the classroom this book would be best used as a read aloud, students are able to relate because going out to eat is a common event. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0142500615, Paperback)

On the occasion of Froggy's parents' anniversary, it's time for the family to head for Chez Yum, a hoity-toity restaurant with tablecloths and flower-filled vases. This means trouble. Froggy only has a few rules to remember--"Be neat, be quiet, and don't put your feet on the table"--but it's absolutely not that simple. Froggy fidgets, shakes salt on his hand and licks it, bangs his spoon on the table, flips his spoon (bonk! oops!), pulls petals off flowers, sucks on sugar cubes (and ice cubes), and then, of course, simply must flop around singing. Just as he's getting down to actually eating, he spies his pretty classmate Frogilina, a guest star from Froggy's First Kiss. This doesn't help matters. As an embarrassed Froggy ducks under the tablecloth, spaghetti and fly sauce goes, well, flying. At that, the whole family gives up and heads to a local diner for burgers and flies. Youngsters will giggle out loud at the oh-so-familiar stunts (and trademark Froggy sound effects) of an irrepressible frog faced with the dreaded Fancy Dinner. This fine addition to the much-loved Froggy series could serve as a lighthearted way to approach table etiquette, but mostly it's just good messy fun. (Ages 3 to 6) --Karin Snelson
