From School Library Journal
PreSchool-K—Readers follow a small green frog as it hops from scene to scene (fields, a garden, a barn), each of which provides hints (a cow, a scarecrow, a chicken coop) as to its location. Each clue is tediously met with: "Can you guess where you are, little frog?" As this frequent refrain quickly becomes tiresome and the tips are occasionally awkward, the title relies heavily on the colorful artwork to make the most of the "puzzle" function. The bright acrylic illustrations take on a folksy appearance as they enliven and explore the farm. Though Arzoumanian's affable animals leap and bound joyfully across the page, the work as a whole is hampered by the banal text.—Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
