School Library Journal - 01/01/2016 PreS-Gr 2—Froggy is super excited to go to the public library and bring home some amazing books. While there, he is a little overly boisterous and gets reprimanded by Miss Otterbottom to use his indoor voice, not to stand on the furniture, and to act politely. Then, there is a storytime, and though Froggy thinks it is for babies, he eventually gets engaged in the story and, in his involvement, causes a big disruption. The librarian ends up incorporating his disruption into her storytime, and after it's over, they have a nice interaction. This is a typical Froggy book-Froggy goes into a situation, he makes some mistakes, he makes some observations, and everything is fine in the end. Portrayals of the library model how both how kids are expected to act in the library and how caring library staff make exceptions when rules are broken. There is no shushing, only gentle reminders. In the end, Froggy takes out a ton of books. The cartoon illustrations are typical for the series, colorful and consistent throughout. VERDICT A good story about visiting the public library and a solid addition to the "Froggy" series.—Heather Massa, East Rockaway Public Library, NY - Copyright 2016 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
