Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-This sixth installment about the lovable frog uses a favorite sport as its theme. Froggy has joined the Dream Team, coached by his father and a friend's mother. On the day they play the Wild Things for the City Cup, he dons his gear (pulling on his underwear with a "zap" and his socks with a "zoop") and heads for the field. These sound effects and the repetitive refrain, "Head it! Boot it! Knee it! Shoot it! BUT DON'T USE YOUR HANDS," will appeal to listeners of this read-aloud. The audience will understandingly blush alongside Froggy when he gets so wrapped up in the action that he forgets the chant and accidentally catches the soccer ball to prevent a goal. Remkiewicz's bright cartoon illustrations capture the characters' enjoyment of the game through their expressive faces. An amusing story sure to please Froggy fans and maybe win a few new ones.

"Play-by-play soccer action, lots of humor, and energetic artwork will please fans of this irrepressible frog." --The Horn Book

More About the Author

I was raised a Navy Brat and moved every two or three years when I was growing up. Now I live in one place and travel to lots of other places. I started writing poems in college, got a M.A. in History, performed in a modern dance company, traveled the world, got married, had two sons, and when I started telling my boys, Aaron and Sean, stories I realized that I could write for children. My first two books came out in the same week, in 1992, THIRTEEN MOONS ON TURTLE'S BACK and THE LION WHO HAD ASTHMA, soon followed by FROGGY GETS DRESSED. These books are still in print. FROGGY GETS DRESSED was the first of over twenty Froggy books. The most recent one is FROGGY GOES TO HAWAII. In October 2011 FROGGY BUILDS A TREE HOUSE will be published. The next one will be FROGGY GOES TO HAWAII. My Froggy books are silly and little kids like them. But I also write other kinds of books, including wildlife books. My first wildlife book was THE EYES OF GRAY WOLF. Most recent one is LITTLE SWAN. In October 2011 LITTLE PENGUIN: THE EMPEROR OF ANTARCTICA will come out. I've published around 100 books since 1992, but now I only write poems for myself. My sons and my wife, Maureen, are my constant inspirations. But I'm also inspired by young children, dogs, mountains, rivers, stars, trees, great cities, deserts, jungles, great food, dance, art, some sports, and the moon. And if anybody asks, Froggy c'est moi--but he's also Aaron and Sean, and every kid I've ever met. Flop flop flop!

One part I like is pretty disgusting.
Jocelyn Goodwin
I think he enjoyed comparing himself to Froggy and it definitely helped him get excited about playing soccer.
Sabrina Martin Ball
This book is for the school library & the children enjoy it.

My four-year-old son loves all of the Froggy books! And when he signed up to play soccer, we read this book every night for the entire season. He chants "Head it, boot it, knee it, shoot it . . . " before every game or practice. We are now buying a copy for the team to autograph and give to the coach. Every soccer mom should get this book! (As well as the other Froggy books!)

He's back! A really fun and exciting book for soccer fans...Froggy and his gang of friends are good sports, and have a lot of fun while becoming champions of good attitude, and their league. A great book for parents too, it highlights the fun that should be team competition...and, of course, it's very funny...

The Froggy book series can be used to teach a variety of language concepts (spatial concepts, reasoning, responding to -wh questions, labeling and identifying parts of the body, using pronouns, etc,). The visuals are also clear and great. I recently use this Froggy book around the period of time when the Word Cup was going on. It helped many of my student understand the concept of the game and make it more concrete. I also like Froggy Gets Dressed, Froggy's Sleepover, etc..

My son loves when I read this book to him. It is fun to read but also teaches children the basic rules of soccer and the importance of team work and enjoying sports.

My son loves this book, but after about 4 readings it started to fall apart and about 5 pages are now floating around somewhere in my house. Great book, just get the hardcover copy.

Format: Paperback
The original "Froggy Gets Dressed" book was extremely clever. But this book is the weakest brand extension since Lego clothing. It includes the basic Froggy elements (sound effects starting with z, authority figures yelling "FRROOGGYY", and our noble protagonist turning more red than green) but you have to wonder when the most original part of the story is Froggy picking his nose. Of course, if your child likes Froggy and likes soccer they will love the book, but I wish the authors had put a bit more effort into it.
