I really liked it because he keeps making mistakes and at the end when his cake comes out that's when he gets a little sad but then he has a mud cake and he gives it to his mom. Because it's his mom's birthday. My favorite part of the story was when the cake came out and it looked like brown dust. The main characters are Froggy, his dad and his mom. I liked that the dad was wearing a really nice shirt. I would recommend this book to other kids who like to cook. There were very nice pictures.

A typical Froggy book! Good for preschool ages up to 2nd grade. Froggy's Dad asks Froggy to come in and bake a cake for his mothers birthday. Of course froggy decides to do it all by himself...... which leads to a big mess in the kitchen and a cake explosion. It is the thought that counts though, and Froggy gets a hug and thank you from his Mom.

This is a great book. It is about Froggy who wants to bake a cake for his mom's birthday. He tries his best, but messes it up by not adding the right ingredients. His mom likes it anyway and they go to a bakery to get something else. I rated it 5 stars because I really liked the plot line and I think kids can learn from wanting to do something nice for one of their parents.

Froggy Bakes a Cake
by Jonathan London
Kindergarten Read Aloud, not the cake you want, and a good lesson on respect for adults. This book is a funny twist on doing something for others.

I thought this book was horrible. there were about 3 different lessons that could have been taught but were ignored. yeah I don't recommend this book to anyone.

not my favorite in the froggy series. he basically plops s bunch of ingredients into a pan and expects a miracle. Breyer to show kids the precision needed.

Froggy Bakes a Cake

This charming and humorous book is about Froggy who wants to bake a cake for his mother all by himself. Froggy slowly gathers all the ingredients he needs; chocolate, sugar, eggs and flour. Does he end up baking a scrumptious cake or making a big mess??

This charming and humorous book is about Froggy who wants to bake a cake for his mother all by himself. Froggy slowly gathers all the ingredients he needs; chocolate, sugar, eggs and flour. Does he end up baking a scrumptious cake or making a big mess??

The book incorporates repetitive words and repeated sentences, which allows children to get involved and say the sentences with the teacher. The book also promotes thinking about numbers when discussing the ingredients, for example ‘he cracked seven eggs into the bowl’.

The book incorporates instruction terminology such as ‘put’ and ‘mix’. They could work with an adult to write their own ingredients and instructions they could use to help them bake a cake and could even get a chance to bake a cake, following the instructions they have written.

This book could be used in the classroom with key stage 5 - 8 year olds.

Mine: My nephews know I love all books that have to do with frogs, so they bought me a set of several of the “Froggy” series for Christmas. I started with this one, since my birthday is coming up.
What a wonderful story of not following a recipe and having an exploding cake. I’m one of those that cook by the book, so this was a story about my worst fears of not following the recipe.

Froggy wants to bake a birthday cake for his mom all by himself, but when he doesn't follow a recipe, the cake ends up exploding in the oven.

I love the Froggy books, they are always fun and very silly. And I think that Froggy is quite a relatable character who kids can learn a lot from.

I had to read through this book a few times. At first I thought it was very odd. Then I understood that little froggy was able to make a cake by himself and though he made some errors he was not bothered by them because everyone makes mistakes.
His parents were very supportive of his efforts. In the end it was also a small lesson that although things may go wrong, the plan can change into something new and it will be okay.

A very cute story about a frog who bakes a cake for his mom on her birthday. It is a great book that entertains the little ones, especially with the onomatopoeia - Flop, Flop, Flop. And it also teaches, about the process of baking a cake and the importance of measuring your ingredients.

Our girls really like the Froggy stories. We enjoyed reading this story together and we've read it many times.

I enjoy all the Froggy books. My kindergarten class loves all the Froggy books!! I read most of the Froggy books around Groundhog's Day. We studied "og" family words, so I read the Froggy books. Now when my kindergarten students see a Froggy Book they want me to read it to them. This Froggy book is one that I ordered recently from Scholastic because I hadn't read it nor had I heard of this one.

Frank enjoys these froggy books, though I'm not certain how I feel about them. They are fun, but it doesn't seem like they have good morals. For example, in this particular one Froggy bakes a cake with no regard to recipes, which I guess leads to some comic relief, but in the end they just go to a bakery to get a real cake. So does it teach make a mess of the kitchen and then go buy something good? I'm not sure.

Kelsey loooooooooves this book. Loves it. We've read it twice a day for the last two weeks at least. Cute story about Froggy baking a cake for his mom's birthday, but he doesn't follow the recipe and the cake explodes in the oven. Now when I'm cooking Kelsey asks me if I'm going to make my food explode like Froggy.

This book is really cute.It has many repetitive words and sentence structure, which could make for an enjoyable read aloud and students can assist. Also the book is easy to follow and can make a good mini lesson on sequencing.

Ella cracked up so hard when I read this too her. FROOOOOOOOOGY! Whaaaaaaaat! Every time Froggy said "I know" we both broke up in a fit of laughter. My cheeks actually hurt from laughing so hard.

A very well liked book. When one ends with the question, "Can we read that again tomorrow night?" You know the child liked it. Cute story where with a few more reads you can talk about asking for help, and of course making a mess! There were a few uh, oh moments while we read tonight.
