Another one of my favorite Froggy books. This one is all about Froggy going to the doctor. He did not want to go because he was scared of getting a shot. In the end, Froggy decided that he liked the doctor and wanted to come back sooner, but the doctor says not too soon. ( )

I am a long time fan of Froggy, since my oldest was little. Now my youngest has discovered Froggy, and all the silly voices that goes with telling the Froggy stories.

This is a sweet and silly story about Froggy's experience at Dr. Mugwort's office, they may make going to the doctor a little less scary for little kids.

There are many reasons why I liked this book. First, is the story is nonfiction and accurate about a doctor visit. Young readers can understand that doctor offices are not a scary place and that doctors are there to help you. For example, Dr. Mugwart warns Froggy that “ Now this may feel cold” when she pressed the stethoscope against his back. Also, the third person point of view helps the reader understand how nervous and afraid Froggy about his doctor checkup. These feelings that Froggy had are normal before going to the doctors to help young children. The big idea of the story is that everyone must have check up visits with the doctors even though you may not be sick. ( )

In my opinion, I liked this book because it relates to an experience in every child’s life: going to the doctors. The way the book was written was very engaging for the audience because it has humor tied into the story line. One humorous event that occurred was when Froggy was touched by the doctor’s stethoscope. The doctor said “this may be a little cold,” and Froggy yelled into the stethoscope “IT’S FREEZING!!!” The illustrations also portrayed this humor effectively. The topic of going to the doctors can be frightening for a young child, so creating illustrations that portray a frog having fun at the doctors creates a less alarming mood. Furthermore, the characters portray real life people as frogs, which creates even further a humorous mood. The text accurately depicts a mother and son relationship with the mother telling her son to “brush his teeth” and “put on clean underwear.” Overall, all audiences can relate to the book.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0142401935, Paperback)

Kids who go to the doctor for a routine checkup shouldn't worry too much. Unless they accidentally throw a paper airplane ("zwish!") into the doctor's eye. Or forget to wear underwear. ("Oops!") Or kick the doctor in the chin when she's testing knee reflexes with a little rubber hammer. ("Clack!") The beloved Froggy is his usual out-of-control self in Dr. Mugwort's office, and preschoolers pondering an impending doctor visit will be relieved to know it won't be too bad, might be fun, and could even involve a gold star or a lollipop. Jonathan London and illustrator Frank Remkiewicz disarm their young readers with giggles in books from Froggy Learns to Swim to Froggy Goes to School. Froggy's silly sound effects and slapstick antics guarantee a lively read-aloud. If laughter is indeed the best medicine, it's good to have a little Froggy on hand. (Preschool and older) --Karin Snelson

Froggy isn't looking forward to his check-up because he might get a shot but when it's over and he's pronounced a very healthy frog, Dr. Mugwort is the one who dreads Froggy's next visit.
