It's time for bed Not if Froggy has his way Even after a long day of playing, Froggy's still not tired. His bath is ready, but first Froggy has to find his boat. And where are his pajamas? And how did his toothbrush get into the cookie jar? Oh, Frrooggyy Now it's time to go to sleep, right? But Froggy can't sleep without a bedtime story Join Froggy as he hops, flops, and zips from one familiar bedtime ritual to another.

Reviews - What do customers think about Froggy Goes to Bed?

Froggy needs a Spanking!  Oct 24, 2007
The kids I work with love this book! As I was reading this, ( and discussing with them what was happening), if was so funny when one of the kids hollered out " Froggy needs a spanking!", thus the title of my review above. I don't particularly care for the back talk and stalling at bedtime,that's going on in the book, but kids do this kind of stuff sometimes. I didn't take it as a how to manual for disrespect as mentioned in other reviews I read.
A Preschooler's Instruction Manual for Bedtime Chaos  Feb 14, 2007
Okay, first I will give you a little history. My 4 year old son suddenly began having bedtime issues after almost two years of smooth, trouble-free bedtime routines. Now we were hearing I need a snack, I'm thirsy, please close my closet door, one more story. I thought "where on earth did all of these requests come from?" As a parent, you get used to stall tactics but this was an onslaught of ridiculous, petty and frustrating requests. My husband and I racked our brains trying to figure out how things had begun to spiral out of control. Although we did not give in, the requests kept mounting.

Then along came Valentine's Day gifts from the grandparents. Included was a book called "Froggy Goes To Bed" My son opened it and said "Hey, we read this book at (pre)school!" Naturally, at naptime that was the book of choice. We sat down to read it and a few pages in it became eerily familiar. I suddenly realized where this bizarre set of requests had come from~ Froggy, the disobedient frog.

Maybe if you have older children they would not be influenced by Froggy's nasty attitude this book would be "funny". However, my 4 year old is much too impressionable for books that make light of disrespect toward parents and supply ideas for how to push your parents to the point that they say (to quote Froggy's mom) "Oh, fiddlesticks!" By the end of the book Froggy's poor mom is so tired that she falls asleep while reading, and reading, and reading to Froggy.

I absolutely would NOT recommend this book. I put it in our pile of books to donate and then, realizing how cruel that was, threw it away. I would not wish this on another parent.

A side note:
We also received "Froggy Goes To the Doctor". In a nutshell Froggy obsesses about getting a shot, is hyper in the waiting room and practically assaults the doctor during the course of his exam. He almost pokes her eye out, knocks her on the floor, bowls her over with his morning breath and so on~ all of which is treated like humor but strikes me as obnoxious and bratty.

I will not be purchasing any Froggy books for anyone I like.
Crowd Pleaser!  Jan 4, 2007
We have a collection of the infamous Froggy books and this is THE favorite!
PLEASE don't take it so seriously  Nov 28, 2006
I have to disagree with the reviewers who consider this a manual for bad behavior. Yeah, I'd never let my kid get away with the stuff Froggy seems to, but that's precisely why the kids find it funny! My almost-two-year-old gets a BIG kick out of saying "FFRRROOOGGGYY" along with me, and "I found it!" is a chorus of triumph. As for teaching the child delaying tactics, well, my son has been trying to find ways to prevent nite-nite from the time he was 18 months, up to and including playing itsy-bitsy spider in the dark... tactics that preceded his introduction to the Froggy series by several months... but I think he recognizes what's going on in Froggy and laughs at it, along with me, because he knows full well it won't work. He is WELL aware that the reading of Froggy books at night precedes lights out, and because he likes the books, has no objection. The child will take his or her cue from the parents' behavior, not from a book, and frankly, if your kid tries any of these tactics more than once, it ain't the book that's the problem.
The simple illustrations are nice and the text is quite readable. But...I am not at all sure I would want the kids reading this one on their own without discussion. The little froggy is indeed a typical kid with typical kid reactions. I found that be best use for this book was to discuss with the children just what it was the frog was doing and why it was so wrong and what some of the ramifications might be for his actions. As an example, I use the tooth brushing battle as a way of explaining just what could happen to teeth that were not brushed properly. All in all this was a okay book but the parent or teacher needs to monitor and discuss each situation.
