    1. Read this one BEFORE you read "Froggy Goes to School" and you'll understand a whole lot more. That said, time for a parent rant:DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CHILD SWIMMING IN THE POND AFTER DARK WHILE YOU GO TO SLEEP!That said, ok, they're frogs. Still. Cute story, not real clear at what point he learned to swim with those crazy instructions, but I can see how it helps? Huh. Good light reading for the summer though, especially if you've got a child a little hesitant about going into the water. Just don't g [...]

    2. o Summary: Froggy is going to the water with his parents. His parents ask him to come and get in the water with them but he doesn’t know how to swim so he is scared. He finally gets the courage to let his parents teach him how to swim. He eventually learns how and then he doesn’t want to get out of the water. Froggy loves to swim!o Grade level: 1sto Appropriate classroom use: Story timeo Individual students who might benefit from reading could be students who are afraid to give something new [...]

    3. "Froggy Learns to Swim" is a good book to share with students in the early elementary grades. For young children, I would use this book to teach about perserverance. Froggy didn't think he would be able to learn how to swim, but because he had a great teacher and because he kept trying, he was able to learn how to swim. Perserverance is a great trait to teach young children because there will be things in school (and life) that they will think they can't do, it is our job to teach them they can! [...]

    4. After reading this book while babysitting, I realized it had a good lesson in it that kids can take out of it. The book tells about a frog who is stubborn to go swimming and accidentally falls in. Once he is in, his mother teaches him how to swim. The frog and his mother go through several steps until Froggy learns how to swim by himself. The night comes to an end and Froggy's mother tells him to get out but he doesn't want to because he loves swimming now that he can do it. I would recommend th [...]

    5. While I could review several Froggy books, I am only going to review a couple because once you read two, you get the general idea. These books are extremely appealing to kids because they are so fun and enjoyable to read aloud. Both of my kids (2 and 4) really enjoy these books.This one we read several times this summer as we were learning to swim ourselves this year. Both of my kids enjoyed Froggy's experiences as he learned to swim just like them. This is also the appeal of the Froggy books as [...]

    6. "Froggy Learns to Swim" is a good book to share with students. Like other Froggy books, you could use this one to show students the use of intentional text and how some words are italicized or in bold in order to draw attention to the reader. One could also use this story as a way to show students that if you try hard enough you can accomplish things you did not think you were able to (like Froggy learning to swim). This would also be a fun story to read before spring break or summer vacation wh [...]

    9. Froggy at first is scared of swimming because he doesn't know how, he rather swing. But he swings so hard he flies off the swing into the pond. His mother is trying to teach him how to swim, first float on his belly, then float on his back. Eventually froggy wants his flippers and his mask and snorkel. His mom is telling him what words to use as he practices how to swim. "bubble bubble, toot toot, chicken, airplane, soldier". Froggy learns to swim and then he refuses to get out after his mother [...]

    10. I think this is a fun take on showing kids that you can learn how to swim and have fun with it although you may be nervous at first. The words in this book are fun for children to hear as well and help give Froggy a unique personality.

    11. This story begins when Froggy’s parents are swimming in the pond. Froggy is on the swing and says he does not know how to swim. Froggy starts swinging faster and eventually flies off of the swing and into the pond where he thinks he is drowning. Froggy’s mom explains that frogs were meant to swim so she begins to teach Froggy to swim. Froggy gets his flippers, mask, and snorkel and eventually learns to love to swim.There is a lot of onomatopoeia in this story. The onomatopoeia begins when Fr [...]

    12. We visited our friends Saturday night, and they have two young kids. When we visit, we usually are there throughout the evening and they invite us to be a part of their bedtime routine with them. Maggie, the oldest, is all about her book routine before bed, and it's our favorite part too! Maggie is a daughter to two wonderful parents, one of whom is a preschool teacher, and they both take literacy very seriously and have books everywhere for her choosing - have since day one! Maggie is given the [...]

    13. Picture Book Fun story about a froggy who is afraid to swim, but ends up loving it. This would be a great story to teach children how to step out of their comfort zone and try new things. Cute illustrations!

    14. "Froggy Learns to Swim" was one of my favorite books as a child. This story focuses on a young frog named Froggy who doesn't know how to swim. His parents try convincing him that they can teach him how to swim but Froggy just wants to swing until - he swings so high that he slides out of the swing and lands into the pond. At this point, Froggy is ready to learn to swim, with the help of his snorkel, flippers, and silly phrases that his mom teaches him to help with his stroke such as "Bubble bubb [...]

    15. This review was originally written for The Baby Bookworm. Visit us for new picture books reviews daily!Summer Reading Day 57: Our book today was Froggy Learns to Swim by Jonathan London, with illustrations by Frank Remkiewicz. It's possible that you are familiar with the Froggy series, typically a tale of Froggy learning a new skill or visiting a new place (Froggy Goes to the Library, Froggy Plays Soccer, etc), and this one is no different: here, Froggy learns to swim despite his fears (and yes, [...]

    16. “Froggy Learns to Swim” is a great book for children 3-5. I love reading this specific Froggy book to this age group because it is about the time they are learning how to swim. It has great illustrations that show a frog who is learning how to swim. It actually uses swimming techniques that are great to show kids learning how to swim. This book is also a good example of learning to overcome your fears.

    17. "Froggy Learns to Swim" is a book that my mom used to read to my siblings and me all the time. It is a really fun, colorful book about a frog who learns how to swim. It would be great for very young children (3-5 years), and could even be used to read to a child before they learn to swim, because it uses actually swimming techniques that I remember I was taught when I was younger. It can teach children to overcome their fears and dive right in!

    18. Such a fun summer read! When summer comes around and swimming begins some kids might be scared of the jumping in the cool water. This book shows kids that its okay to be scared but sometimes being brave can turn out to be fun. Froggy learns that if he takes the time to listen and learn that swimming can be a lot of fun. I think that kids will enjoy reading about Froggy and seeing if he learns how to swim.

    19. In Froggy learns to swim, Froggy is outside with his mom and is afraid to get in the water. After a lot of persistence, Froggy goes in the water where his mother teaches him to swim. He then swims all night long because he loves it so much. This book teaches children the beauty of trying something new.

    20. Froggy is a new favorite series for Natalie. They cover many topics Natalie can relate to. I don't particularly love them personally. The humor just isn't spot on for me personally, but Natalie really enjoys them. Each book seems to follow a pattern, such as the same number events, there being an embarrassing accident, and expected dialog and sounds (flop flop and zip).

    21.

Froggy is still afraid, but once he has his flippers, snorkle, and swim mask, he goes right on in the water and loves it! Froggy swims all night long.
