“A collection of 24 deliberately silly poems illustrated with dancing, prancing, and hopping frogs. The poems are amusing and cute and full of wordplay…not really about frogs…but things children do, like playing hopscotch, trick-or-treating, ice-skating and square dancing.” KIRKUS

“There is never a dull moment in these verses. The 24 brief, humorous poems hop, prance, and even can-can across the pages…Some of the selections are silly; all are rhythmic and playful with lots of alliteration and some clever workplay…The celebration of play and movement through language and art should encourage coach potatoes to tap their feet and dance around. SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

“Young readers will be inspired to read and write and even do a dance of their own by this energetic collection that’s sure to add bounce to any season!” CHILDREN’S BOOK COUNCIL
