About this book

Froggy is going to the doctor for a checkup, and he?s feeling a little nervous. ?What if the doctor wants to give me a shot?? he thinks. He worries as he dresses and then he can?t sit still in the waiting room. Finally, it?s time to go in and change for his exam, but . . . OOOPS! He?s forgotten his underwear! And that?s just the beginning of Froggy?s hilarious doctor visit that ends reassuringly with a gold star and a lollipop.

Reader's Thoughts


Here is Froggy again, and this time, he is getting ready for his annual doctor's checkup. Froggy is excited until he remembers that he might have to get a shot. But, as you read the story, you can tell that the doctor is more the one who should be worried rather than Froggy. Froggy is a cute story that many children would find very funny. The illustrations, by Frank Remkiewicz, are amusing and help children understand the story a little bit more. The bright picutes also make it attractive for younger readers. I would recommend this book to children in preschool to first grade. I would also recommend it more to children after a doctor's visit rather than before. I will say that I did not really like the part when the doctor acted like she was going to give Froggy a shot. That might either get children's hopes up or show that doctors know that the shots are not good, rather than down-playing shots. I also listened to the audio version of this book. I felt that it was well done by John McDonough. I especially like the voice he added for the mother. I felt that was a good example of how children hear mothers. I alos think he did a good job reading the onomatopoeia that was in this story.




This book explains a child's fear of going to the doctor in a hilarious, easy to understand way. Froggy provides for some great entertainment at the doctor's office, too, as he forgot to wear underwear to the doctor and his mom had to make some out of paper for him. My boys LOVED that part! Cute and funny read.

I saw this book used in my observation of a preschool class, and it was really cool the way they incorporated it. They had an actual pediatrician come in and she read them this book, which is all about going to the doctor, and then she showed them all of her "doctor tools" and let the kids use them. It was a really neat lesson. This book is also a really good one to read to younger kids to let them know that the doctor isn't scary. Children need to hear that from a young age, because it seems really scary.


Funny book for 3 to 3rd grade. Unexpected underwear scene in the book. Good book for sound words and teaching how to read with expression.

This book is great for discussing visiting the Doctor and routine visits that helps keeps us healthy. Students may have anxieties about seeing a doctor because they think they may be receiveing a shot. This book is also great for making connection to life.


My kids recently discovered these books and love them. They are rather fun, and even our little two-year old will repeat words that get repeated throughout the book. It's pretty cute. Definitely a kid favorite.

Very cute pictures and once again, the animals are used to perfection to depict a real human scenario.This book would be perfect for a kindergartener or 1st grader who is scared to go to the doctor.
