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.
