Freddy the Frogcaster and the Big Blizzard by Janice Dean

There's a blizzard blowing toward Lilypad and someone has to warn the frogs! Frog News Network meteorologist Sally Croaker is busy in the newsroom and Polly Woggins is preparing for live broadcasts in the snow. It's up to Freddy the Frogcaster to spread the news and get everyone prepared for the snow storm!

The second book in the popular Freddy the Frogcaster series from Janice Dean "The Weather Machine," Freddy the Frogcaster and the Big Blizzard will entertain the whole family with a fanciful blend of weather facts and froggy fiction.

Janice Dean

Known as “Janice Dean the Weather Machine,” Janice Dean has been predicting the weather on Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network since 2004. She is a trained meteorologist and she loves to share her scientific knowledge, and the inspiration that led to her passion for weather, with kids and adults alike. Before Fox, she had a long career working at various radio and TV stations as a DJ, anchor, and host.



My Review:

Another delightful, well written and attention grabber by Janice Dean, Freddy the Frogcaster and the Big Blizzard, reminiscent of her first book Freddy The Frogcaster, this one will not disappoint. My 7 year old was just about rolling on the floor, and enjoyed the story so much; I had to read it again. He delighted in the eye-catching illustrations, and the whimsical names, Sally Croaker and Polly Woggins, and of course, he had to add his own few that he came up with.
In this book he also had a learning lesson about what the family should have to be prepared for a bad winter storm. He knows we already have some of the items that were listed, we also went over where all of the things are located, and we need to pick up some more batteries.
If you are looking for a great book, that is eye catching, and keeps your child’s attention, I highly recommend this one. My little guy did decide that he didn’t want to try the fried cricket stew.
At the end of the book there is a highly educational area on weather conditions, and again has illustrations. There is also a winter checklist with what if’s, and good hints.

I received this book through the publisher Regnery Kids, and was not required to give a positive review.
