Does Froggy have a girlfriend?

He can't even think straight when she's around. When Frogilina smiles at him through the monkey bars, Froggy falls smack on his head-bonk! So with Valentine's Day just a week away, Froggy gets busy making an extra-special valentine. The fifth book about the irrepressible Froggy, this is sure to keep children giggling with delight.

An IRA-CBC Children's Choice Book

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Froggy's First Kiss I'm always looking for special books for my daycare. Well, the Froggy series has touched the 4 year old in my care. I can read them over and over and he cann't get enough of them. I hope Froggy will continue with new adventures. His favourite is Froggy's First Kiss. He is in junior kindergarten at school and has his eye on a special someone just like Froggy.

From Our Editors

Froggy’s in love! That tenacious, loquacious, happy-go-lucky little creature that made Jonathan London’s other delightful Froggy books such a hit with kids has lost his heart. Frogilina, the new girl, is the object of Froggy’s affections — and with Valentine’s Day only a week away, he’d better get cracking. Unfortunately for the smitten frog, that’s exactly what happens, as he falls off the monkey bars and then bumps his head when under his desk, all in his efforts to impress his lofty goddess. Froggy’s First Kiss is a wonderfully onomatopoeic way to share the joys and heartaches of first love — and the comfort of going home to mom when things don’t work out!
