Book Description

Sept. 24 2002 Froggy
Froggy has never celebrated Christmas; usually he's taking his long winter's nap. But not this year! Froggy's best friend, Max the beaver, wakes him up to join the fun. Soon, Froggy's gotten into the swing of things: finding a tree, wrapping presents, singing carols, and enjoying a holiday feast. Join Froggy as he celebrates his very first, and very best, Christmas!

"The humor and spirited artwork will put Froggy fans in the holiday mood!" (The Horn Book)

"Children who have delighted in the earlier books about Froggy will cheer him along as he experiences his very first Christmas." (School Library Journal)

Product Description

From Amazon

'Twas the night before Christmas... and Froggy was snoozing away! Every year he sleeps through the holidays, waking up only when spring arrives. But this year his friend Max the beaver has other plans in store for his amphibious pal. Tossing snowballs at Froggy's window, Max rouses him and gives him his first-ever Christmas present. "Gee, thanks," says Froggy, faintly perplexed. "I always wanted a drawing of a Christmas tree." But it's not a picture Max is giving him, it's the real thing! The two set off to wake Matthew the turtle and Travis the bear from their hibernations. Soon all four are in search of the perfect Christmas tree. All goes well with the selection, transport home, and decoration...until Froggy decides it's time to place the foil star on top. "Timber!" shouts Max. "Thunk!"

Frank Remkiewicz's cheerful illustrations tell this holiday story beautifully, but Jonathan London's animal banter and sound effects ("Zup! Znap! Zat! Zwit! Zum!" as Froggy gets dressed in his snow clothes--long underwear, purple leggings, yellow and green polka-dot shirt, blue boots, and red plaid coat) beg for read-aloud. Children relate, oh how they relate, to Froggy's silly antics and mishaps, as seen in Froggy Goes to School, Froggy Gets Dressed, and loads of others in the perfectly delightful Froggy series. (Ages 3 to 6) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Froggy Wishes...Merry Christmas to All Nov. 27 2000
Format:Hardcover
Poor Froggy, he sleeps all winter and has never been able to celebrate Christmas. But this year, his friend Max the beaver has other plans. He wakes Froggy up from his long winter nap to not only wish him a Merry Christmas, but to give him his first Christmas present ever...a Christmas tree. Froggy and Max hurry to wake up Matthew, the turtle and Travis, the bear from their winter hibernations (because Christmas is about friends) and all four head out to find the perfect tree. They carry it back to Froggy's house, decorate it, make home-made presents for Froggy's family (because Christmas is about family too) and then it's time for Froggy to put the star on top of the tree. Over goes the tree as Max shouts "timber"! This wakes Froggy's mom and dad and they have a wonderful celebration, doing everything...opening presents, roasting chestnuts, singing, eating and even having a snowball fight. And as the day ends, Froggy wishes "Merry Christmas to All" Jonathan London has written a funny, happy, gentle story about the real meaning of Christmas...spending time with friends and family. His easy to read text, full of cheerful animal dialogue and wonderful sound effects is complimented by Frank Remkiewicz's colorful, busy, detailed illustrations. Together they've created a wonderful holiday story that's just perfect for pre-schoolers and that's sure to become an instant favorite in your house.

Some good values in the book. Emphasis on friends family rather than just gifts and treats. If your kids already know who the characters are from previous books, they will love it even more.

Format:Paperback
Children are sure to relate to Froggy's forgetfulness, impatience, and fears. His adventures are wonderful. The repetitive text and funny sounds will encourage readers who are sure to be attracted to the hilariously expressive illustrations. I love these books!!!
