Storytime: Frogs

Jump, Frog, Jump! by Robert Kalan

Where Are You, Little Frog? by Kayleigh Rhatigan







 When I first decided on a frog theme I thought “this will be easy, there are a ton of frog picture books, songs and rhymes.” Well I proved myself wrong! This theme went down in story time flames (along with bats which was so terrible that I didn’t even bother making a post about it). None of the books I found were very attention grabbing and my little ones just wiggled through most of it. They did really enjoy Animal Action II and Two Little Frogs, which I adapt to as many animals as possible. If anyone else has ever done a frog theme I’d love to know how it worked out for you and what you read!



Croak Said the Frog

Croak said the frog

With his golden eyes (fists up to eyes)

Sitting on a lily pad

Catching flies (grab at the air)

I have a sticky tongue (stick tongue out)

It’s as fast as can be

And I catch the mosquitoes (grab at the air)

Five Green And Speckled Frogs


Five green and speckled frogs

Sitting on a speckled logs

Eating some most delicious bugs


One jumped into the pool

Where it was nice and cool

Then there were four green speckled frogs

Animal Action II by Greg & Steve

Two Little Frogs

Two little frogs sitting on a hill,

One named Jack and one named Jill

Jump away Jack, jump away Jill

Come back Jack, come back Jill

…sitting on a pole, one named Fast and one named Slow

…sitting on a cloud, one named Quiet and one named loud
