Froggy is excited he has a new baby sister but wishes she grew legs so they can do things together. He ends up taking great care of her. All kids will like this especially if they are getting a new sibling. It can teach kids the importance of being a good brother/sister.

This book would be cute to read to younger students. It shows them the proper way to treat younger siblings if they have any. It helps them understand that no matter what they should always be nice to their siblings.

Each and everyone of us grows at some point in our life. We must be patient and learn to accept things for what they are. This book is geared to all ages because it faces the issue of anticipation in accordance to patience. This is a issue we go through every day of our lives. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0142403423, Paperback)

In Jonathan London’s latest picture book about the only too human Froggy (following Froggy’s First Kiss, Froggy Goes to School, and others), our floppy-footed hero experiences yet another first: a new sibling. Froggy waits eagerly for his brother to be born. When Pollywogilina ("you can call her Polly for short") finally arrives, Froggy gets over his disappointment at her gender, but quickly loses patience with her inability to do anything. He wants to teach her how to jump off a swing, bounce on a pogo stick, and catch flies with her tongue. "But Polly was too little." Will she ever be big enough to play?

Wise older siblings will be happy to inform Froggy that yes, one day Polly will be bigger and ready to be bossed around. Only children (or young amphibians) who are expecting younger siblings will be intrigued at the process of becoming a big brother or sister, and may even learn a little about patience in the process. And everyone will love watching Froggy's green cheeks turn red when his first diapering job doesn't quite do the trick! Frank Remkiewicz's cheerful illustrations capture the ups and downs of those early days with a squalling baby in the house--and an antsy big brother waiting for the fun to begin. (Ages 2 to 6) --Emilie Coulter

Froggy hoped for a brother to play with so he is disappointed with his new baby sister, Pollywogilina, but only until she is old enough to start learning from her big brother.
