School Library Journal - 01/01/1996 PreS-Gr 1--It's now summertime for the hero of Froggy Gets Dressed (Viking, 1992). When an overzealous swing ride tosses him into a pond, his patient mother assures her terrified son that all frogs are great swimmers, and she teaches him how. He is still reluctant until he puts on his flippers, mask, and snorkel. Then he won't get out of the water--all night! Vivid watercolor cartoons add to the humor, showing the comical facial expressions and hilarious beachwear. Froggy's childlike dialogue and the sound words--``zook! zik!''; ``flop flop...splash!''--make this story a wonderful read-aloud. Pair it with Marc Brown's D.W. All Wet (Little, 1988) to promote discussion about overcoming fears.--Betty Teague, Blythe Academy of Languages, Greenville, SC - Copyright 1996 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
