School Library Journal - 08/01/1998 PreS-Gr 1--In this fourth book for Froggy lovers, children are sure to relate to that pit in the stomach feeling that often comes with the first day of school. Froggy's biggest nightmare comes true--he shows up for school in his underwear. Luckily, that scenario is just a bad dream, and the big day proceeds without a hitch. This is a great read-aloud with sounds and words that encourage active participation. Remkiewicz's large, vivid cartoon illustrations show Froggy's amusing, priceless facial expressions as well as those of his family and assorted animal classmates. A charming story to calm those pre-school jitters.--Kathy Mitchell, Gadsden Co.

Booklist - 06/01/1996 The fourth book about Froggy begins with a nightmare many kids will recognize: he finds himself at school in only his underwear. Luckily, it was all a bad dream. He wakes up in his bed and gets all dressed up for his first day at school. He's so nervous he can't pour milk on his bowl of flies for breakfast. In class he has to learn to keep his voice down and pay attention, but his ebullient performance at circle time is a great success. The big, bright cartoon illustrations pick up the silliness of nervous Froggy, and children will laugh at his innocence and sympathize with his jitters.
