Product Description

From Amazon

Even when Froggy goes to bed, it's a high-action adventure. If you've seen him learn to swim, go to school, bake a cake, get dressed for winter, or play soccer, you know that in Froggy's world nothing is ever easy or efficient, and that everything has its own set of goofy sound effects. This is precisely why preschoolers can't resist these delightful read-aloud picture books! Despite the fact that Froggy is "too pooped to pop," he is not at all tired when it's time for bed. (Sound familiar?) He has to find his boat before he can take a bubble bath, and goes looking for his pajamas, his toothbrush (it is not in the fishbowl or the wastebasket, but in the cookie jar), his huggy, and a bowl of flies for a snack. A couple of glasses of water (oops) and a bedtime story later, his mother is fast asleep: "'Good night, Mom,' said Froggy. Then he closed his eyes and went to sleep--zzzzzzzzzz." Parents and children alike will welcome this addition to Jonathan London and illustrator Frank Remkiewicz's Froggy series. (Ages 2 to 6) --Karin Snelson --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-Froggy's stalling tactics will delight any child who has ever begged to stay up just a few more minutes. When his mother announces that it is bedtime, the frog's familiar response is, "No! I'm not tired." He goes through all the usual bedtime rituals of taking a bath, putting on his pajamas, brushing his teeth, and finding his huggy (a human rag doll), all of which are hidden in the most unlikely places. Before he goes to sleep, he snacks on a bowl of flies, which makes him thirsty for a drink, which he spills. Exhausted, his mother tells him to go to sleep, but he begs for a story. Predictably, she falls asleep reading to him. The tireless amphibian gives her a hug, and finally goes to sleep, too. Sounds like "flop flop flop," "splash splash splash," and "Munch scrunch munch" will encourage children's participation, and youngsters will giggle at all the silly places Froggy searches for the things he needs before bed. Remkiewicz's bold, funny cartoons vary from several small pictures on a white background to full-spread paintings. The art echoes the text and will appeal to children. A great bedtime story.

Raising respectful children is a difficult task. Many parents try hard, and pray hard, to see that their children learn good manners and a good attitude. Those are some of my parenting goals.
This is our first Froggy book - it was given to my daughter as a Christmas gift. It is certainly not a book I would have bought for her. Other reviewers have written about the disrespect the Froggy shows toward his mother - and it is prevalent in this story.
The other concern I have with this story is the fact that it teaches children a number of diversions to use when they don't want to go to bed. I'm pretty sure that children will learn many of these on their own, but why read them this story and teach them to:
hide their toothbrush in the cookie jar?
to eat after brushing their teeth for the night?
to demand so much from their mother before going to sleep?
No! These are certainly not things I will intentionally teach my daughter.
The story does beg one other question - Where is Froggy's father in all this?
If you want to speed your child on his or her way to being ill mannered and disrespectful, this is the book for you.
The only plus, in my opinion, is the artwork. The book is well illustrated.

It's the end of the day and Froggy is "too pooped to pop". But that doesn't stop him from prolonging his bedtime. He has to find his boat before his bubble bath, and then his pajamas, his toothbrush and his huggy. And before his mother can get him tucked in he needs a snack and a drink, the closet door has to be closed, the bedroom door opened just right and his nightlight turned to low. Poor mother frog is getting pretty tired herself, but Froggy insists on a story. As mother begins to read, she drops off to sleep and begins to snore. Only then does Froggy close his eyes and fall soundly asleep. Jonathan London has written a gentle, funny story of bedtime delayed, full of wonderful, expressive illustrations and silly sound effects, that will delight and amuse all pre-schoolers. And as they watch Froggy's staying-up antics, many will recognize a little of themselves in the story. This is a book that is sure to become a bedtime favorite and a nice addition to all of London's Froggy stories.

When Froggy gets home from his friends house his mother tells him it's time for bed. He tells his mother he is not tired and is not ready yet. She asks him if he wants to take a bubble bath first and he agrees to take one. But before he gets in the bath tub he needs to find his toy boat. He looks every where for it and finally he finds it in the laundry bin. After the bath his mother tells him to put his p.j.s on. He said he would but first he has to find them. He finds them and puts them on. His mother tells him it's time to go to bed but he says he is hungry and wants a snack. He has a snack and he tells his mother he will go to sleep if he can have a drink. She brings him some water and he spills it and so she brings him some more. He asks his mother to read him a story and while she is reading it she falls asleep.

I was a little shocked to see the previous bad reviews of this book. Upon reading the concerns of parents I did come to see the observations they had made in a different light. Despite understanding how someone could conclude as they have, I personally must disagree. I don't expect this book to teach my child antics.
What my daughter (nearly 2 yrs old) has learned from this book is how to say "FROOOGGGYYY" when she sees the word. At her age, she enjoys helping me "find" things, and enjoys froggy's searches for lost items. She also identifies froggy's "brushing" in a positive tone, and "oops" with concern that froggy has spilled water. This story relates to her reality. And, above all, it is the first book she has tried to "read" on her own.
Nothing but positve results in my family! :)
