Hold your nose, it’s a stinky book.

Amazon SummaryFrog has a problem. Burping makes him happy, but all the other frogs think it’s disgusting. When he finds a town where everyone loves to burp, he finally realizes that the other frogs may have been right after all.

This comedy of bad manners will have children laughing out loud. And they will discover, like Frog, that a little manners can go a long way. Lisa Kopelke’s lively text and witty illustrations showcase Frog and his overly gassy friends.

Dino Review: Frog burgs all the time and it stinks so bad (waves hand in front of his face). It;s okay to burp, but he does it all the time and never says excuse me. That’s not nice. He doesn’t stop and loses all his family and friends. It has a happy ending though. 

Mommy Review: What kid doesn’t like a book about burps…the illustrations and wording is so well done, that you can almost smell the burps. This is a great book about manners! It teaches kids what happens when you don’t use good manners. In the end Frog learns that it’s okay to burp by accident, not on purpose, and he has to say excuse me.

  1. Sounds like a perfect way to talk about what is and isn’t acceptable behavior. Can’t believe how grown up Dino is looking!!!!

  2. Both my girls think that burping/farting/body noises are hilarious. This book sounds like a great way to teach them to appreciate the humor but also keep up the good manners. Thanks for the recommendation!

  3. Hysterical! I love that the frog sees what it is like to be the non-burper. Thanks for sharing, Dino! Great review. Have a paw-some rest of the week.

  4. Hahaha! Now THAT is an awesome book! Great choice Dino and thanks for linking into the Kid Lit Blog Hop. Happy Holidays to you and your family Karen! xx
