I'm star-rating this one for my daughter, because it is one of her favorite childhood Christmas stories. We have a whole collection of Christmas books that we have accumulated over the years, which come out and are on display in two large baskets right after Thanksgiving every year, then get boxed up after Christmas and stored away until the following year. This book is in that collection, and when the books came out this year, my daughter wanted this story to be one of the first ones we re-read ...more

Loved adding a science lesson about hibernation to this simple read for my Kindergarten and First graders. Also I used the puppet- big hit!

Froggy wakes up and experiences his first Christmas. Ages 4-8.

Froggy is usually sleeping when the holidays roll around; but this year, he is woken up, and celebrates his first Christmas.

Little ones will delight in the antics he pulls; they will be able to relate with Froggy trying to find the best tree, wrapping the best present, etc.

Froggy is always a delight to read!
I read this Froggy book with a child who is a beginner reader. We both enjoyed the story. It was cute, funny, included sounds effects, and had a positive message about the spirit. The book was also educational for child reader who lived in Florida. She had questions about hibernation, winter clothing, beavers, trudging through snow, live vs. artificial Christmas trees and more. I was surprised by how much of the content was new to her. Fun book. I hope I have the chance to read other Froggy Book ...more

The spirit of Christmas giving pervades the book. Froggy creates memories with Max the Beaver, Matthew the Turtle, and Travis the Bear. New traditions include finding and decorating a tree, opening presents, roasting chestnuts, singing carols, and having a snowball fight. Santa Owl makes a brief appearance at the end.
Any Froggy book is fun for 4-7 year old children, but this one is my favorite. I'm not sure about girls, but I've heard that boys love these books and Nicholas did! They are not a ton of fun to read over and over, but Nicholas like the repetition and fun words like zip, zop, zoop!

Froggie is usually sleeping when the holidays roll around but this year he is up and celebrates his first and best Christmas.

Little ones will delight in the antics he pulls and will be able to identify with Froggy trying to find the best tree, wrapping the best present, etc.

Froggy learns about Christmas when his friend wakes him from hibernation to celebrate. It's fun how this gets spread along to everyone he knows, friends and family alike as they create Christmas for everyone.
We love the Froggy books, and this one is another great one. Froggy's friend, Max the beaver, wakes him up from his hibernating on Christma morning to share Christma with him. Very cute and a good message.
As Froggy normally sleeps during Christmas, he celebrated his first Christmas. Max gives him a Christmas tree. Friends and family decorate the tree with pinecones and popcorn. Santa Owl peers in at the end.

This is a book about a frog that is woken up to experience his first christmas. The pictures are very kid friendly and very colorful. This book shows that one animal is waking others from hibernation.
Froggy has always slept through Christmas. Now, his friend decides to show him what it is exactly that Froggy has been missing every year. A cute story to kick off the Christmas season. =)

We like Froggy. We also like reading the english and spanish versions consecutively as it helps build spanish vocabulary of the words we don't use every day.
I love Froggy he is very funny. Although, I could do without him always answering "Wha-a-a-a-at?" to his mother all the time.
My children love Froggy's books. We like all the fun words and Froggy's is an extraordinary character!

En leer las dos versiones (ingles y espanol) aprendemos palabras que no usamos con frequencia.
We (my boys are 4 & 8) like the Froggy books but this one was boring.

Froggy and his friends and family celebrate Christmas.
