It's a special occasion, so Froggy and his parents are going to
eat dinner in a fancy restaurant. When they arrive at the restaurant,
Froggy's mom has a few rules for him: "Be neat, be quiet, and don't put
your feet on the table." But it's so hard for Froggy to sit still. He
fidgets, he squirms, and he sssllluuuurrrrpppps his spaghetti. Then he
spots Frogilina across the restaurant-now it's impossible for Froggy to
follow the rules!

There is a lot of "Froggy" read in this house, and for the most part, I don't mind it.
"Froggy Eats Out" is the exception. Let's start with the premise. Why are Froggy's
parents taking him with them to celebrate their anniversary? If they couldn't find
a babysitter, why not change the destination?

Instead, Froggy acts out in such a way that any half decent parent would drag him
from the restaurant to discipline him for his outlandish behavior. Instead, they

2018 is going to be the Reading Challenge year of kiddo books because... well, I'm a new mom.

For the record, my husband and I call this one "Froggy DINES Out" because internet culture has warped us for ill, clearly.

Froggy is a great character that children can relate to.
He has to do things he doesn't want and does want and makes the common mistakes kids will make in funny ways. Extremely relatable for children. They all love Froggy. The illustrations are fun and bright and really pull out the action and funny parts of the tale. In this particular story, Froggy has to go out and eat at a fancy restaurant. It is tough to be good for so long at a fancy restaurant.

I picked up this book from Scholastic, based on the other "Froggie" books. I am sending it to Goodwill tomorrow. I am shocked that any publishing house let this book go to print.

It starts off promising...Froggy and his parents are going out to eat for a special occasion. They change their clothes and go to a fancy restaurant. His parents review manners. Froggy breaks all their rules, destroying the table settings, slurping his food, and hitting wait it's with a fork he threw.

They happily leave the restaurant in a disaster and head to get a burger. End of story.

What a dreadful story for kids. I can't even believe how misguided this is. ...more

I hated this one. I've tried to be generous with this series and author, but this time the story went too far. Here we have a special occasion and a fancy dinner out.

Then the conclusion? Seriously? He acts so bad that his Oh please please please don't cross this line....

Froggy's parents take him to a fancy restaurant for their anniversary. Froggy acts out so terribly they finally decide to leave and Froggy gets to eat at the fast food place he wanted to go to in the first place. What is the message here? Parents ignoring what their children can handle? Children ignoring parents? Behaving badly long enough gets you what you want in the end? Maybe it's just supposed to be funny but this isn't one I will add to our home library.

3.5 stars I guess...I give it 3, my kids give it 4. It made them laugh out loud that froggy wanted a hamburger with flies. :) And having 3 kids, I can empathize with the froggy parents that want a nice calm dinner out and end up instead with chaos. (My kids have never been as bad as Froggy, but going out to isn't very relaxing with little kids.)

"Froggy Eats Out" is a silly book that students will enjoy. My second grade students really enjoy all of the Froggy books! For this book, you could show the students how certain words are written in specific ways so that the reader knows how to read them. For example words like zip, sluuurrp, etc. are written in italics to draw attention to them.

I've never been to a restaurant, so I'm taking this book with a grain of salt. But I wonder if people are really that nosy about how you behave there?

Why in the world is Froggy going with his parents to a fancy restaurant on their anniversary? Either they needed a babysitter or change the restaurant before going out.

I read this quite some time ago with a student during a practicum as a pre-service teacher and I am almost positive that even the student felt the story was ridiculous.

I am a big fan of the entire Froggy series, but I think the books are at their best when Froggy encounters a new daily living skill (à la Froggy Gets Dressed) or a new social experience in his community.

Froggy Eats Out is the one I picked to represent the series in this list because I think the challenges of eating in restaurants are so common for our families! However, be aware of the breadth of titles in this series exploring milestones like going on vacation, learning to swim, going to the library, visiting the doctor, having a babysitter, going on a playdate, and many more experiences.

In Froggy Eats Out, Froggy accompanies his parents for their anniversary to a fancy restaurant. There won't be any burgers and flies and he has to follow his mother's rules: "Be neat, be quiet, and don't put your feet on the table." But it's hard not to fidget and or make a mess when you have to wait a long time and none of the food is what you are used to. Froggy ends up hopping all over the restaurant and when he spies his friend Frogilina he gets so embarrassed that he ends up knocking his meal on to the floor. His parents don't get mad, they just relocate to a "fast flies place" and enjoy their day together.

My son Harry loves this book. He thinks it's hilarious that there is a rule about putting your feet on the table.

I'm sure some will disagree with me about using this book as a quasi-social story since Froggy isn't "successful" at eating out at the fancy restaurant, but I really love this modeling of failure. Froggy tries and his family reacts to the unfortunate catastrophe with empathy and love. Children with autism have a lot of demands placed on them. They deserve to know that we love them even if they miss the mark the first time they try something new and hard.

The title of my book is Froggy Eats Out By Jonathan London. The main character in the story are Froggy, his Mom and Dad. In the begging of the story they were getting ready for a fancy restaurant. The story is all about Froggy being very immature in the restaurant. You will have to read this book to see what happens by the end.
I like this book because I can relate to this and it's funny in the restaurant and I liked how the parents and Froggy get ready for a big night out.

Froggy's parents have decided to take Froggy out to eat at a nice restaurant. This book chronicles what he has to wear and how he has to behave in restaurants. It is a fun, entertaining book about eating out and manners. The pictures are fun to see and even funny in some places. My son loves this book!

This is such a cute kids story. My son loved it! He said "see momma he's just like me!" He's referring to the trouble and mess this little frog made. I love when he can relate to characters in a book! He's only three too!

Sir or madam: Do you think that a book involving a frog should, nay, must, involve jokes such as "hamburgers and flies"? If yes, I have the book for you: No: the series.

This book is about a frog who goes out to a fancy restaurant, but when nothing goes right, his dad takes him for burgers and flies instead. Because it is a Froggy book, which is from a book series, some kids might participate when you read, "FROOOGGGGYYY" by saying, "Whaaaaaat?" which is always fun. This book is also great because it teaches kids about going to a restaurant, and how you should behave in a restaurant.

I absolutely love Froggy books in general and I hadn't gotten the chance to read this one before. The plot follows a funny, little green frog who always manages to do the exact opposite of what his parents ask.

Despite his mom's incessant pleads for him to behave and act nicely, Froggy jumps all over the restaurant, spill his water, and completely ruin the quiet and relaxing atmosphere for everyone trying I absolutely love Froggy books in general and I hadn't gotten the chance to read this one before.

Despite his mom's incessant pleads for him to behave and act nicely, Froggy jumps all over the restaurant, spill his water, and completely ruin the quiet and relaxing atmosphere for everyone trying to have dinner. When the food finally arrives, Froggy gets so embarrassed from seeing his crush Frogilina that he accidentally pulls off the tablecloth and dumps his spaghetti on his head! His mom and dad have definitely seen enough and decide to hit up a "burgers and flies" joint on the way home.

While I read the book, the first thing that jumped out was the author's craft. Jonathan London LOVES using all types of onomatopoeia. While I read the book I could almost hear Froggy "flop flop flop" all the way to the bathroom to wash up or the "zip, zap, zup!" of him getting dressed. Not only does it add to the story, but it makes it fun! And when I say fun, I don't just mean fun for the audience, but fun for the person who's reading it. It adds a sense of playfulness to the book and makes this funnier, like listening to Froggy eat his spaghetti "sluuuuuuurrrrp!" or listening to him get spaghetti all over his head "splat!"

Another thing that I noticed while reading the book was the colors used in the illustrations and how they tied in with the text. When the book starts out, the backgrounds are all yellow, or as seen through the text, proposing the problem to the reader that Froggy is starving and has nothing to eat. As soon as his mom tells him that they're going out for dinner, the backgrounds become blue, or very calm as portrayed through the text. As soon as they arrive at the restaurant, the background gets red, foreshadowing the fiasco that is about to take place in the story. Once the falling action comes along and they leave the restaurant, the backgrounds return to a calm blue.
