Froggy is getting a pet—and only a dog will
do!

 
Mom has agreed:  Froggy can have a pet. 
Off to the pet store they go.  Mom would prefer a bunny or some
mice, but Froggy and his little sister, Pollywogilina, have their hearts
set on a doggy.  And when Froggy sees the little dog with big
brown eyes, he begs to take her home.
Froggy promises he’ll
take care of Doggy: put on her collar, take her for a walk, and teach
her to sit up and beg. But Doggy proves harder to train than Froggy
anticipated—and he’d forgotten about pooperscooper
duty!
“Peppy illustrations capture Froggy with his new pup,
as well as his disdain for the dreaded pooper-scooper. This one
won’t disappoint his loyal
fans.”—Booklist

Nearly every time I read a new "froggy" book, I'm like..."meh...it's alright." This time, I was pleasantly surprised. I think this will make for a fun read aloud to preschoolers...maybe even as fun as Froggy Gets Dressed. Win!

Our daughter picked this one out herself because she loves dogs. And her and my husband lived reading it together before bed. Any book that keeps her entertained is a good book in my books.

In Froggy Gets a Doggy, written by Jonathan London and illustrated by Frank Remkiewicz,. . . well, the title pretty much says it all. Froggy demands a dog from his mother, who says no, despite having plans to go to the animal shelter that day.

At the animal shelter, Froggy acts like a disobedient little (view spoiler)[shit (hide spoiler)], while his mom yells at Froggy a lot and suggests buying dangerous animals. Seriously, why the (view spoiler)[fuck (hide spoiler)] does the animal shelter have an alligator for sale? Despite spending the entire book demonstrating his irresponsibility and misbehaving at every turn, Froggy's mom gets him a dog anyway. Froggy continues to be rude to his mom and fails to teach his dog anything. But they all have a good laugh.

I'm not sure where this book falls, chronologically, but I don't think we see the dog again. Granted, based on Froggy's behavior in this and other books, there may be a reason for that.

I feel like I could just copy-and-paste Froggy reviews: Froggy behaves irresponsibility and acts like a (view spoiler)[dick (hide spoiler)] to his parents. His mom acts like a (view spoiler)[bitch (hide spoiler)] and also behaves irresponsibly, while his dad is a deadbeat. His mom eventually caves and rewards Froggy's bad behavior. Froggy turns more red in the face than green. Story concludes with Froggy learning absolutely nothing.

This book has all the usual faults of a Froggy book, but I think this one was worse than most because of the alligator scene. Alligators are extremely dangerous wild animals and should not be owned as pets. Baby alligators grow up to be big alligators and they will (view spoiler)[fucking (hide spoiler)] kill you, no joke. Froggy's mother is not sufficiently rebuked for her truly awful, life-endangering suggestion. The very fact that the animal shelter is offering a baby alligator implies to impressionable young readers that such animals make good pets. They don't. Seriously, kids, alligators will (view spoiler)[fuck (hide spoiler)] you up. ...more

Same formula but lots of fun to read with children.

Froggy wants a pet dog so he, his mother and little sister travel to the local pet shelter to find one. Froggy learns the value of taking care of a pet and showing it love.

The formula consists of Froggy and his mother hollering out to each other and ending up with Froggy doing something embarrassing. But everyone recovers and all ends well.

A great children's book and the children learn to holler along with Froggy.

Froggy Gets a Doggy is a cute little children's book that is about a frog family that is looking to get a animal for their home. The one animal that the children want for the home is a dog. The kids are trying to convince their parents to get a dog and not any other animal. It is a funny story for Pre-K to 2nd grade to read or have read to them. This is a great family oriented story and fun for young kids.

Froggy books are classics that I grew up reading! This one is about the responsibilities of having a pet. These are great books to read aloud because they have lots of sound words.

Should Froggy have a doggy? Froggy thinks so! Not only is this book fun to read, but it can be used as a great way to introduce the responsibilities of having a dog to kids. Entertainment and responsibility at it's finest!

Read during Summer Camp Visit on July 30th, 2018.

Not only has Froggy's mom agreed to let Froggy get a pet, she also lets him get what he always wanted - a dog! Froggy learns about pet responsibilities in this cute children's book.

This is a funny fantasy book about learning to take care of a pet. Froggy learns its not all about having fun. Would be good in a text set about responsibility. Good for grades K-3.

I thought this book was very cute, like all Froggy books. My kinders and firsties have enjoyed it (pooper scooper HA HA HA). It's full of the usual Froggy silliness. As always it rankles me a bit that Froggy answers his mom by saying, "What?" instead of something more polite, but not all families are the same so I let it go. Froggy adopts a dog from a shelter, and learns what a challenge a dog can be.

Froggy books are always great beginner reader books. This one is about him getting a dog, and it teaches children how to responsibly take care of an animal. It would be a good book for children when talking about animals in science class or even just going over a unit on pets. Mainly for grades 1-4 the words are slightly challenging, but still not that hard or complex. There might be a few that would have to be explained. But not as many as in a more challenging book.

I gave this book 5 starts -- which is very unusual. Perhaps it's my bias. I love a picture book that teaches children something. In this book, Froggy and his family learn that you go to an animal shelter to get a pet. They learn (from their very wise mother frog) that you must be responsible and have a collar and leash. You must give the dog water and a soft bed. And, you must pick up after your dog. If only some adults realized this!

A. This book was about a frog named Froggy. Froggy's mom told Froggy that they were going to the pet store. Froggy knew that he wanted a dog but Froggy's mom said it would be to hard to take care of a dog. Froggy begged and eventually Froggy's mom agreed to buy a dog. When they got home it didn't take Froggy long to realize how hard it was to actually take care of a dog. Froggy had to scoop up the dogs poop and the dog kept Froggy up at night.

B. The theme in this book is responsibility.

I strongly dislike this book. More precisely, I strongly dislike the main character, Froggy, who is mouthy, demanding, and falsely confident. He sasses back to his mother and disregards her point of view and her instructions, then says bratty things like, "Mo-ooom, I *know*!" when he clearly doesn't. This low-grade disrespect is already too common among children; the last thing they need is a book to demonstrate and reinforce the behavior.

The library bag was filled with Froggy books this week (another favorite series from my daughters childhood). I still enjoy Froggys antics and enthusiasm as he does everything from getting dressed to hopping across the room. Nothing can contain his excitement at the pet store where he wants a dog (not a rabbit, alligator, or mouse). Both my neighbor and I agreed that getting an alligator for a pet might pose some problems for a family of frogs.

The adults slamming this book because "It doesn't make sense for a frog to have a dog for a pet" need to take a big step back, and realize that they're reviewing a silly children's picture book. Why are you tearing it apart like it's a Pulitzer candidate?

This may be my favorite Froggy book since Froggy Gets Dressed. It's silly and it's funny and that's what has made Froggy a great series over the years. It's going to make a great read aloud, especially if read with other pet books.

Boring and nonsensical. I just can't see this maintaining a child's interest. As a parent, there was also a message in there regarding "froggy" disobeying his mother and sticking his hand in front of an unknown dog's cage. I know that is not a message I would want my young child to see or hear.

I will state that I liked the message of pet ADOPTION vs. purchasing. I also liked the message of responsible pet care.

Froggy really wants a pet, but not just any pet: a doggy! Though his mom isn't fond of the idea she eventually breaks down and Froggy learns about responsibility as it pertains to pet ownership.

Not the most exciting read, but Froggy fans will enjoy it and the realities of pet care are realistically scripted and rendered. Recommended for PreK-2.

I have been reading the Froggy books to my son for several years. I don't know if we are just tired of them, or if this one was just not as good as the others. Neither one of us enjoyed this as much as we thought we would have. Maybe it is time for Jonathan London to move on and retire Froggy.
