Synopsis

When Finklehopper Frog decides to give jogging a try everyone laughs at his new workout clothes--and his hoppity jogging technique. As his doubts about the sport grow, one smart bunny helps Finklehopper discover that being part of the crowd doesn't mean compromising his own froggy style. Catchy rhyme paired with bright illustrations has made this a read-aloud favorite.

"Livingston's rhythms echo Finklehopper's bounce and blithe spirit, and encourage youngsters to be happy with their own best efforts."

  • This book is catchy
    From Amazon

    The story line has a good lesson, and my daughter enjoys looking at all of the animals in their jogging suits. I definitely recommend to others.

  • Uplifting book
    From Amazon

    This is one of our favorite books. The message is great--"just be yourself" and the rhythm of the book helps deliver that happy message.

  • GREAT FIND!!!!
    From Amazon

    This book is a fabulously feel good book for ages 3-up. Purchase several- one for you & one for a gift! The message conveyed It is ok to be different accompanied by vibrantly colored pictures. See Also: Finklehopper Cheers-another great story, but not as catchy as the 1st-still, one I am happy we own.

  • Has a good lesson in the story kids will love
    From Amazon

    Finklehopper Frog, originally published in hardcover, is being released by Tricycle Press in paperback. Author Irene Livingston has published over a hundred children's stories and poems and lives in Vancouver, British Columbia. Brian Lies has illustrated over a dozen children's books and lives in Massachusetts. Wow! Everyone in Finklehopper Frog's neighborhood seems to be involved in a fitness craze and have taken up jogging. Finklehopper Frog thinks exercise is a good idea and purchases a jazzy jogging suit with pink and purple dots. He gets dressed and hits the trails--hopping. His confidence continues to diminish as other joggers snicker and laugh at him. He's feeling pretty awful until a bunny convinces him that his unique style is `a good thing' and he doesn't have to feel bad about it. The message of Finklehopper Frog is a good one and is delivered in a manner that small children will easily understand. They will giggle at the pictures and get caught up in the verse. The illustrations are delightful and add to the story. Armchair Interviews says: Children will enjoy Finklehopper Frog and want to read it again and again.

  • Very fun sing-songy book
    From Amazon

    I love this book. It is a very fun book about a frog who wants to learn to jog, so he goes out and buys a funky jogging suit and takes to the neighborhood streets. The illustrations of different animals in their homes as if they had plots in suburbia is hysterical. Poor Finklehopper becomes the laughing-stock of the neighborhood as he can't quite seem to get the hang of jogging. That all changes when he meets Ruby Rabbit who points out that frogs and rabbits hop, they don't jog. The story ends on a nice note of acceptance of all despite differences.
