This book was very funny and I laughed while I read it. The book was good and I noticed that it is a great book for read alouds. First, the text features set the tone of the book. While you're reading the book, the different text fonts, punctuation, and font sizes show the reader how the book should be read and it also lets the reader know how the characters in the story feel and how the author wanted to story to be written. For example, the characters in the story call out the main characters name. The author wrote his name in all capital, bold, colored letters"FRROOGGYY!" at the top of the page. This indicates that the reader should yell out his name and drag it since it's written with multiple repeating letters. Second, the illustrations were catchy. The author used bold colors such as red, blue, and yellow. For example, when the family is out to eat at the restaurant to eat, the author illustrated the whole background with the color red. It really made you feel like you were in the restaurant. I think the overall message of this book is manners really count. The story shows how manners are important to remember especially in a fancy restaurant. ( )

Froggy goes out to dinner with his parents for the first time, but things do not go that great. I love this story. I would use this book in my class to teach my students about etiquette. The art work for this book was great also. ( )

Summary: Froggy and his family go out to eat at a nice restaurant. Froggy is impatient and knocks over water glasses, hits people in the head with spoons, and spills the salt. After many instances, Froggy's parents decide to go to a fast food restaurant where there are no manners needed.
Genre: Fantasy becuase the family of frogs talk to one another and they go out to fancy restaurants where penguins serve them food. They try on clothes, eat spaghetti, brush their teeth, and order from a menu.
Style: The author uses onomatopoeia to create sounds that the frogs are doing. When Froggy is changing his clothes, the author uses words such as zip, zut, zup, zoop, flop, and znap to help us hear what is going on in the story. This would also serve as a consonance.

It is Froggy’s parent’s anniversary and he is getting dressed up and ready to go out to eat at a fancy restaurant. Froggy’s mother told him to behave himself while at the restaurant, but Froggy just couldn’t help himself and made quite a racket. After being embarrassed by his actions Froggy’s parents decide to go to a simple place where they could really enjoy themselves.
I enjoyed reading this book mainly because I thought the illustrations were very interesting. It was a funny book and the illustrations really made it more fun to read.
In the classroom, I would teach a lesson over restaurant etiquette. We would talk about the things that Froggy did that was not appropriate, and I would have the kids explain ways on how to act in a restaurant. Also, we will practice good manners and the act the proper way when at the dinner table during snack time.

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
