Froggie Went A-Courtin by Iza Trapani

2006/32 pgs

About the Book: A new version of the folk song about a frog and his courting of various animals.

Sarah Teenlibrarian Says: I originally picked this book up to see if it could work for my storytelling class (we have a unit on folk songs). It's a cute version of the story, but it really needs the pictures to help tell the story.

Poor Froggie keeps asking animal after animal to marry him, and they keep rejecting him. But Froggie doesn't give up and it's when he meets a lovely Frog that he knows he's found his true love.

A fun retelling with adorable illustrations.
