Bibliographic Information: London, Jonathan, and Frank Remkiewicz. Froggy Gets Dressed. New York, N.Y., U.S.A.: Viking, 1992. Print.
Brief Annotation: This is a story about a frog named Froggy who wakes up and wants to go play out in the snow. He puts on his hats and mittens but then his mom calls him in because he forgot his pants, then he forgot his coat, and so on. This happens until he is so tired from all of the changing that he decides he will just go back to bed.
Grade Level: K-2
Readers who will like this: Students who enjoy the Froggy books will enjoy this one as well. It is an easy to read story and it can get students excited about playing out in the snow.
Rating/Response: 5 – I rated this book a five because I feel that it is a great way to get students reading. It is simple to read and I feel that a lot of students would enjoy this book. It could also help students remember what to wear when going outside in the snow.
One question you would ask before a read aloud: “As we can see from the window on the cover of the book, it is snowing outside in this story, What would Froggy need to wear in order to play outside?”
Reading Strategy: Free Choice (picture book)
Rationale for Strategy: I placed this book under the free choice category because I would want it to be a book that was available for students at any point. This book could probably be used to help preschoolers learn how to get dressed.
