One day, there was a frog named Froggy. He didn?t know how to swim so his mom tried to teach him how to swim. She told him to say, ?Bubble, bubble, toot, toot, chicken, airplane, soldier? while he was trying to swim. This was supposed to help Froggy remember where his arms and legs should go while he swam. He tried it, but it didn?t work. He went to get a snorkel, water mask, and flippers. Froggy jumped into the water and tried swimming again. He swam all night long and was able to sing ?Bubble, bubble, toot, toot, chicken, airplane, soldier? as we swam. In the end, he learned how to swim!

Our favorite part of the story is when Froggy doesn?t know how to swim because he thinks that frogs can?t swim. It made us laugh so hard! Our least favorite character was the mommy because she said silly words to Froggy. We liked Froggy better because he was really funny and looked silly in the snorkel and flippers. This story relates to our lives because we like to go swimming, too. Also, we like to wear a water mask with a snorkel and a bathing suit when we go swimming.

This story has pictures. They help us understand the story because they tell us what is happening. Otherwise, we wouldn?t understand part of what is going on. We also think that it is funny to look at Froggy in his bathing suit and snorkel. We think others should read this book because it is fun to read all of the time. We have read it over and over.
