Read an Excerpt

Finklehopper, Finklehopper,
Finklehopper Frog saw that all the other folks were going out to jog.

Finklehopper whispered,
“I will buy a jogging suit.
I’ll get myself a jazzy one,
a dandy one, a beaut!”

So Finkle got his hat and coat and locked his little door,
then hopped to Mrs. Chimpanzee’s.
She ran a clothing store.

I bought this for my 3 year old grandson and he loved it. We read it over and over when he is at my house. I'm now looking forward to the new book with Finklehopper. The illustrations are colorful and lively. The book is in a rhyming fashion with repetition that the younger children love. And the story line and lesson is very good,too.

Finklehopper has been my son's favorite book since he's a year old! Every night at storytime, this is the book he wants read to him, and he makes sure he stays awake until we finish it. I love the illustrations and the meaning of the story. A definite must have on your child's bookshelf.

From a basket of books, my daughter fishes this one out time and time again. This is a nightly read at our house; we love the painterly illustrations, fun rhyme and great message. At 21 months, she will sit still for multiple reads in a row and several of the pages are lovingly worn and torn. A fantastic book with lots of fun things to look for in the illustrations.
