5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly fantastic book! 25 July 2003
Format:Paperback
My 2 and a half year old LOVES this book, in fact since getting it out of the library (and subsequently buying our own copy, bedtimes have become less stressful! It is a rhyming book, and you just can't help getting caught up in the silliness of it all.
No-one will be disapoointed buying this book - its right up there with Dr Zeuss!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book 28 Jan 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Our 3 year old can't get enough of frog and his friends dancing by the cool of the pool. Our copy is battered and shabby from being read so often. The illustrations are vibrant, the cadences of the wording are just right, and read with the appropriate enthusiasm in the voice, it's a 100% winner.

4.0 out of 5 stars great illustrations 3 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very nice book, easy rhymes and a fun story. But it is a bit short. Probably better for younger children. My girl is almost three and there is not that much text in this

A great book which was bought as a gift and was very well received by the intended audience. To say "over the moon" is an understatement.
