Book Review Of “Life According To OG The Frog” @PenguinKids @fabanks92 @PenguinRandom
The adventures in Humphrey’s Room 26 are hopping back into the spotlight, from the perspective of Og the Frog!
When Og the Frog first comes to Room 26, he doesn’t know what to think. He misses his friends from the pond, there are all kinds of strange noises, and the water is his tank just might be too clean (you know, a little muck never hurt anyone). But the furry, squeaky fellow living next to him is endlessly entertaining, the kids sure are friendly, and–BING, BANG, BOING!–they put big fat crickets right into his tank.
All of this gives Og lots of ideas for one of his favorite passtimes–making up poems and songs. But he gets stumped when talk turns to sending him back to the pond. Will he have to say good-bye to Tabitha whose whole life just changed like his? Or Mandy who just started seeing the bright side of things with his help? And Humphrey, who he’s finally beginning to figure out? (From Goodreads)

Mommy rates it a 4 out of 5 stars.
This was our first jump into this world, I’ve heard the “Humphreys” Series was very cute, So I was excited to be invited to read this one with my little guys.
I liked that this book taught kids about frogs, and their environments, what kind of food they eat, what happens when they are moved from their homes. And it taught them these facts in a very endearing way. fun and educational. I liked that my boys were learning, without being aware of it.
There was an introduction to another animal my boys love, and that’s hamsters. They love the furry little fluff balls, so to have them mentioned in this book was really exciting for them. I feel like this book would teach a good lesson in compassion, and teaches kids respect animals. We really enjoyed this book, and glad we got to experience it together. Now when my boys catch frogs, they know how important it is to leave them in their natural environments once they are done holding them.
