A silly story that is more for little girls than little boys.
Anthony Mitchell
This story was a classic tale of the ugly frog who turns into a handsome prince. This time instead of a kiss from a pretty girl,it was acts of kindness for three straight days that lifted the evil curse from the frog and changed him back into a prince.
My Response to this story was very lukewarm and thus my 3 star rating. This story was very predictable and less dark than some of the other Grimm fairy tales.
"Open the door my princess dear,Open the door to thy true love here! And mind the words

Even though the book "The Frog Prince" by Sindy McKay isn't my cup of tea, I actually thought the story was really interesting. I had the opportunity to read this one of the kids I used to babysit. The story has a very nice and calm plot and is very relatable to young readers. The ending of the story really made my friend happy when the frog turned into a prince. Then following that event the princess and him lived happily after. This book is defiantly a good read for younger readers.

This was great. My page had maybe 3 paragraphs and the kid page had roughly 4 lines. When the kid page had a harder word, like princess, it was only after I'd used it so it was fresh in his mind.

I just put 4 more of these on hold at the library. They come in different levels but this level works well for where we are :-)

This is a traditional fairy tale about a young prince, vanity and finding the true beauty in people. This story takes place long ago and it brings the reader to a place of magic and wonder. This would be a good story to incorporate in younger grades, but the moral can transend through all grades.

"The Frog Price" is one of the most known and popular tales by the Brother Grimm's.

This tale follows a young pricess who was playing with her favourite plaything, a golden ball, when it fell into a fountain.
But when she looked into the fountain, it was so deep that she couldn't see the bottom of it.

While crying for her loss, a frog came out of the water's fountain and asked her why she weeps so bitterly..
When she replied, he said to her that he will give it back to her for a promise to stay at

This is not the exact book that I read, but I couldn't find it listed. The thing I would like to focus most on is the main character of the princess and her portrayal. I found it interesting that this book seemed to deviate from the normal theme of what a typical fairy tale princess should be. Most other princesses are supremely beautiful, as is this one, but they are also incredibly kind. This is something that this princess is not at all. She does exhibit the normal damsel in distress way abou ...more

The Frog Prince by Jacob Grimm and Sindy McKay is a spin-off of the Princess and the Frog. This folklore story is intended for the young reader and is different than the classical one which was illustrated very well. Instead of the frog having to be kissed he has to have the princess be nice to him so he can turn back into a prince. The theme of the book are keeping promises which the princess doesn’t do a good job at first, the evil magic that turned him into the frog, and happily ever after. O ...more

This book was similar to the frog prince story I had heard growing up. It fits all of the stereotypical fairy tale qualifications. The love is between the prince and princess. The Villainis the wicked witch. The magic/ surrealism is included when the prince was enchanted by a witch. The frog changed from frog to human. The lesson or moral is you must always keep your promises.
And, of course, the happy ending is they got married and lived happily ever after.

This particular version of this Grimm tale is out of print and a bit difficult to find but it is well worth the search as the illustrations are great. The tale of the Frog Prince sticks to the original quite well, which is refreshing, but the illustrations truely make this book. If you can find it, this is one that you might well want to add to your collection.

i used to love this story when i was a child but now I'm a adult i can not understand something? when the frog changed into a prince he got married to the princess but when he was a frog she treated him bad but they got married(O_O). was reading this to my son :].... book was The Complete illustrated stories of the brothers grimm (edition published 1984)
Neil Nicholson
This book can be used to talk about fairy tales which usually include some type of talking animal. In this version of the story, the prince does not want a kiss. He just wants to eat from the princesss plate and sleep on her pillow. The story ends with a happily ever after. I would recommend this book for kindergartners and 1st graders.

I liked it because it's a classic. I have heard it many times before. The illustrations were very nice. I really like the approach it takes in teaching children to not take people at face value. Rather, it is important to get to know a person based on their qualities and not solely their appearance.

When I was a kid, we have a boxed set of fairy tales and one of them was The Frog Prince. I used to hate reading this! The illustrations of the frog used to gross me out and I would lose my interest easily and grab another book to read. Harhar. I never read the full story until now!

I enjoyed this retelling of the Princess and the Frog in this story. The illustrations were nice. I liked the moral of the book it shows the meaning of true friendship and the importance of keeping promises. I would recommend this for K- 3rd grade.

It was refreshing to read this take on the princess & the frog. I am assuming it is the original. Either way, the ending was very interesting.

While I don't think the illustrations or writing is anything great, I do like this concept of an adult reading page and a child reading page.

Told from the frog's point of view, it's a bit of a different story. Well done. Twists and turns.
