Synopsis: Froggy's mother knows that everyone's nervous on the first day of school. "Not me!" says Froggy, and together they leapfrog to the bus stop.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Make a lunchbox button, and draw your first day of school.
•  Do you remember having any dreams about school? Draw.
•  Make a frog that jumps by cutting out a flat frog shape, and taping legs to it which are drawn on one tightly folded (3 times back and forth, top flap is taped to body, bottom flap is feet) piece of construction paper.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
