Staff Reviews

This is hilarious sequel to Frog on a Log? Of who can sit on who.  But now Frog wants to change the rules, because he doesn’t like to be sat on by dogs.  I love reading this book out loud.  It has great rhyming words that most people wouldn’t think of.

Frog is turning the rules upside-down in this riotous, rhyming sequel to Frog on a Log?!

"You know the rules," said cat. "Cats sit on mats, frogs sit on logs, and dogs sit on FROGS!"

"Well, I'm changing the rules," said the frog.

In this hilarious sequel to Frog on a Log?, frog decides that he does not want to sit on a log, and he definitely does not want a dog to sit on a frog! So he changes the rules. Now, dogs sit on logs, and cats sit on gnats! But what will frog decide to sit on now?

Chock-full of absurd animal rhyme pairings, Dog on a Frog? shows young readers that every animal has many special places to sit. Reminiscent of Dr. Seuss's Beginner Books, this sequel is a fun, educational read-aloud story that helps build reading skills!
