What did you like about the book?  In this newest addition to the Froggy series, the family takes a trip to Grandma’s.  As usual, Froggy’s exuberance can get him into trouble – almost knocking Grandma over, catching a baseball at a game and bonking himself on the head, getting his finger stuck in a bowling ball.  But no matter what little disasters may occur Froggy is always sure of the love and support of his family.  The bright colorful illustrations add to the fun as do the frequent sound words – “flop flop flop,” “munch crunch munch,” and  “Beep! Beep!”  Froggy fans are sure to be laughing aloud!
