Another story about a frog who can't swim...but once he learns, he won't come out of the water!

Bubble bubble, toot toot! Chicken, airplane, soldier.

In this book Froggy learns to swim even though he is not sure he wants to. He doesn't think he'll be able to swim. His parents show him that he can. They teach him how to swim with a fun little song. It took a while, but at the end of the day Froggy knew how to swim and didn't want to get out of the water.

The language in this book will be stuck in students' heads for the rest of their lives. It is also a fun way to approach the subject of getting children to learn how to swim. After reading about Froggy's first swim children will probably be more likely to enjoy it. Also, this book series has some of my all time favorite illustrations. ( )

About the author: Jonathan London started writing children's books only after he had children of his own. Ideas for his Froggy series, which includes twenty-five books come to him in dreams or sometimes just leap into his mind. About the illustrator: Frank Remkiewicz is popular for illustrating the Horrible Harry series by Suzy Kline and, of course the Froggy series. He has also written and illustrated his own books. About the book: It is just assumed that Froggy knows how to swim, but poor Froggy does't know how to swim, but with some help from his mother and equipment, before it's over he's frog-kicking all around the pond.

FROGGY LEARNS TO SWIM is about a young boy frog who is finally learning to swim in a pond. Froggy’s parents went outside to swim on a hot day but Froggy didn’t want to swim, he wanted to swing. Once he flies off his swing and into the water, Froggy learns to swim with the support from his mother. After a long day of learning, he learns that he actually loves swimming! In this book, the illustrations are lively and fun to look at. The details aren’t too much, but there is just the right amount of color and space to look at that will keep the reader attentive to the story. A lesson learned from this story is to be brave and try new activities. In a classroom setting, a child could tell about a time where they tried something new, maybe it was riding a two-wheeled bike, or even trying broccoli. Whatever it is, the child has learned something new and he or she was tough enough to brave it out and learn to love it, or maybe not. Students can also learn about where a frog was born in this story. There are many ideas in thus children’s book that will be intriguing for children to listen to, or read. ( )
