Froggy Gets Dressed by Jonathan London
Froggy Gets Dressed is a big hit with preschoolers. In this silly story, Froggy wakes up in the middle of winter and wants to play in the snow. He has to get dressed over and over again because he keeps forgetting an article of clothing – which his mom keeps announcing, very loudly out the window.

Toad on the Road by Susan Schade
Toad on the Road is a silly book about a toad who loves to drive. If your child is learning to read this is a good choice for a frog theme beginner reader book. It is from the Step Into Reading series books for preschoolers so it has large text and a simple fun storyline.

In the Small, Small Pond by Denise Fleming
In the Small, Small Pond starts with tadpoles and then follows their adventure as a frog living in the pond with other animals. This is a fun book for preschoolers because they have to search for the frog throughout the pages.

Tuesday and A Frog thing book

These are two of my favorite frog books for young children – Tuesday by David Wiesner and A Frog Thing by Eric Drachman

Tuesday by David Wiesner
Tuesday by David Wiesner is a whimsical book full of imagination. The illustrations are amazing and are used to tell the silly story of events with frogs that took place one Tuesday night.

A Frog Thing by Eric Drachman
A Frog Thing we find out that even frogs are taught life lessons – at least a little frog named Frank was. This great story shares Frank’s fun adventure doing what no other frog has ever done – flying!  It all started when his parents told him he could do anything he sets his mind to. So Frank set his mind to flying. When Frank’s parents realize what he wants to do the try to explain that what they meant was, he can do any frog thing he sets his mind to. But Frank is determined to fly. This is a great book about a young frog who refuses to give up on his dream. It has a great ending and teaches a valuable life lesson preschoolers will understand and enjoy hearing read.
