Froggy's Sleepover is about Froggy who is at a sleepover with his beaver friend. Froggy and Beaver can't decide on whose house they will stay at because they get frightened by each other's dark and unknown house. They eventually pick which house to stay at by the time the sun comes up and then they sleep through the day. This book doesn't really teach a lesson to the kids but to the parents I think it teaches them to have your child make a decision then go through with it. Not to let them keep g ...more
This book is an enjoyable read. Froggy is going on his first sleepover at his friend Max's house, and that is the beginning of a long night for these two friends. They wind up spending much of the night traveling back and forth between each other's homes. I love how the author Jonathan London used onomatopoeias throughout the text, such as "sloof, flop, shlump, floof, and slam" to further illustrate what is going on and engage the readers in the text. It can be used in a 2nd or 3rd grade classro ...more

This story is about Froggy going to his first sleepover. Froggy is so excited to sleep over his friends house, but doesn't realize how scary and uncomfortable it can be to be away from home. He thinks of a way to head back home by using the excuse that his mother makes great popcorn. It isn't long before his friend gets homesick and thinks of a reason to go back to his house. The boys go back and forth between houses until they finally fall asleep the next morning. I wasn't a huge fan of this st ...more
Froggy is excited about his first sleepover at friend Max’s house until bedtime, when shadows and scary sounds make him homesick. Typical Froggy fare, the text includes the expected onomatopoeia (flop flop flop, schloop) and scenes of Mother calling out reminders to the forgetful amphibian. There’s nothing new here, but fans will recognize their own fears in Froggy and Max and will smile at their silliness. Brightly colored illustrations add to the fun. Follow up a read-aloud session with a clas ...more

Cute little situation that honestly disturbed me. I can't say that even I would allow this madness. My kids have asked several times if they could do this, and the thing is I have never met their parents and they haven't made the attempt to contact me; about said sleepovers. As a parent I would only that my kids would go to a trusted friends house, one where I trust their parents. All in all I'm just rambling so carry on with your night.
This book is about Froggie and his friend who want to have a sleepover. They both want to stay at each others houses, but neither of them want to leave their own house. They go back and forth dragging their belongings to each house until they decide to fall asleep at 9am. I thought this book was good and related to young children very well because young children get homesick a lot.
Froggy's Sleepover is a good book.The book is about 2 friends both afraid to spend the night away from home. They spend the night traveling back and forth from one house to the next. A great book to read and discuss with your students about sleepover. I am sure they will all be able to make a personal connection to this one.
This book will be fun to share with young students because they might be experiencing sleep-overs with new friends so they could easily relate to this book. All of the froggy books can be used to make text to text connections. To extend this book try using it for author studies!.
My girls must have picked up a fondness for 'Froggy' from daycare. They like the story with its simple onomatopoeia. Normally, I'm all for things that make a story fun to tell, but there just isn't much here to hold my interest.
They like the stories. :)

A cute book in which Froggy is going to have a sleepover at his friend Max's house. After a series of kid size problems, Froggy and Max eventually fall asleep. Poor parents! A good book to prepare any child for their first sleepover. =)
This book is great for students because they are learning about making friends and how to act. Froggy ends up being scared when he goes to spend the night with someone and many kids are able to relate to that and realize that it's okay.

Another great "Froggy" book. Students could discuss confronting the fears of sleeping somewhere other than their own home. Could also be used to teach onamotopeias and how to be a good friend. Grades K through 2nd.

Froggy and Max are so funny!!! Froggy and Max move back and forth for everything, because Froggy and Max get hungry and thirsty and, because they feel comfortable at their own house.
