My boys love this book! Both of them separately asked me to read it to them today, and my older son got so excited he asked if he could finish reading it aloud to me half-way through the book. At first I was unsure how the story would go when Dave wanted to catch a frog and take it home as a pet, but as I read I was really pleased with the outcome. Simple words, good repetition of some words without feeling too redundant in speech. Love it!

Such a lovely story about caring for pets and the responsibilities that go along with it. Great book about exploring nature and respecting it as well. It was a great book for building confidence in reading and kept my sons interest and the illustrations are perfect. I plan to keep and use as a read aloud for the Reptiles & Amphibians Science curriculum as well.


Good story, interesting pictures

I like how true to life this story can be. The illustrations show movement very well, and have a lot for little eyes to drink in. The pictures and story are great for young children who love to catch “pets” and try to keep them.

My favorite part of this beautiful book is Dave’s mom patiently following him on his adventures. My children loved this story.

My little one was excited to read a chapter book like the older kids. The words were perfect for challenging her but not to hard. One of her summer activities is frog catching so this held her interest.

Dave would love nothing more than a pet just for himself. When he finds a frog at the pond, he thinks that his dreams have come true! Come along with Dave as he learns to care for his new pet and the adventures that await in having a pet frog!
