Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2—Meet the Frog family: Mommy, Daddy, and Little Frog. It is just the three of them until Little Frog learns that he is about to become a big brother to nine tadpoles. When his siblings arrive, they can't jump, play the drums, or do much of anything except take up mom and dad's time and attention. His parents are too busy with the babies to read The Frog Prince at bedtime, or give goodnight kisses. Daddy reminds his son that one day soon the tadpoles will become frogs. Indeed, Little Frog discovers that as the tadpoles mature, they can be good playmates and do lots of fun things. Feeney uses whimsical line drawings with an ample amount of white space. The frogs' squarish features are amusing. Although the plot is not terribly strong, and the characters not as charming as the animals in Small Bunny's Blue Blanket (Knopf, 2012), parents will appreciate the positive message about welcoming new siblings into the family.—Roxanne Burg, Orange County Public Library, CA

From Booklist

A happy frog family of three lives together contentedly—and Little Frog likes it that way. One day Mommy and Daddy tell Little Frog that he is going to be a big brother to not one, not two, but to NINE baby tadpoles. The young amphibian is not impressed, especially since the siblings can’t do anything—they can’t play the drums, or build a tower, or even jump. Furthermore, they take up all of Mommy and Daddy’s time, with bedtime stories, baths, and care giving. Soon enough the tadpoles grow into little frogs, and in a humorous sideways double-spread page, they prove to be quite adept at building tall towers. White backgrounds and simple line-and-wash drawings in greens and pinks showcase Feeney’s charming square froggies, who are full of personality. Subtle distinctions between boy and girl frogs are the dots on their tummies— three green ones for the boys and two green and one pink for the girls. A reassuring last page shows how Little Frog is the best big brother to them all. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Lolly Gepson
