I love the Froggy books.  Sharing Froggy with a group of kinders can bring on the giggles.

They can laugh and scream along with him and all of his adventures.

These books are especially great to perform as a reader’s theater.

Froggy books are also great for compare and contrast, end marks, and writing with voice.  

Froggy Builds a Tree House and aren’t we all excited when we hear his mom yell, “FROOOOOOGGGGYYYY!!!!!
