School Library Journal - 10/01/2018 PreS-Gr 2—In the oft-sung, cumulative classic children's song, Long portrays the main character as an innocent-eyed, but sometimes goofy frog surrounded by his watery habitat. The illustrations are a great strength of this book. The charming artwork adds comedy to the song and creates a demand for repeated readings. Dark green hues dominate the illustrations created in acrylic and colored pencil. The art fills each page and will show well in a storytime presentation with larger groups. Unique to this rendition is the addition of a tiny snail and a small turtle who contribute their own comic relief. They provide side comments about the major action in the story—"There's a log? There's a log!" (as the turtle sarcastically retorts, "It's just a piece of rotten wood."). Music is appended. VERDICT Refresh musical and storytime collections with this old favorite that has been updated with delightful images.—Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
