All about frogs not having good behavior. This books just didn't grab me but could be a good tool to teach a child what good behavior should be.

Bad frog is all about frogs who misbehave. It's written more to a toddler crowd but preschool will love it especially if you give it sound effects. There is one page that I would skip...bad frogs staying out late kissing their girlfriends. Why would that author put that in there for a book for children?! Anyway I plan on just paper clipping the pages together as that was my only qualm. Word to the wise, these frogs will always be bad so make sure to read it to kids who understand that this is NO ...more
Those Bad Frogs! Will they ever learn? They use very bad manners at the dinner table (BURP!)...Spilling water out of the bathtub (GLUB!)...Painting the walls. Could they be good? Can they be quiet? NOT A CHANCE.

Used for "Frog Fever" Family Storytime-May, 2010.

Not sure why the frogs are so bad but they do enjoy being bad frogs and I enjoyed going along for the ride! These bad frogs do all sorts of bad things and question if they will be good. Funny book with no real lesson here. Ages 3+

I didn't really like this book. I thought the story was dumb and it doesn't teach good things. I would never use it in my classroom.
Hilarious and adorable - these frogs "chew gum," "fight with their toothbrushes," and "kiss their girlfriends," among other "bad" things.

My daughter chose this one at the library today. Not a favorite but we liked the illustrations, they were fun.

Thought the "bad frogs" might decide to be good and have some redeeming qualities, but they don't.

I'm giving this 3 stars because no one teaches the bad frogs how to behave.
