Froggy Plays T-Ball

Froggy Plays T-Ball

Series: Froggy
by Jonathan London Illustrated by Frank Remkiewicz

It's Froggy's first day on the T-ball team, and he couldn't be more excited, with his dad as the coach and his whole family cheering him on. But when Coach Dad tells him to catch some flies out in right field, he takes the advice with his usual gusto —literally.

Froggy can't seem to do anything right, but once he starts paying attention, his playing improves. He even hits a home run, and runs all the way — to his house.

The perfect introduction to a favorite sport, Froggy Plays T-Ball reminds kids that it's not whether you win or lose — it's how you play the game (without getting bonked on the head ).
