Synopsis

When Finklehopper Frog decides to give jogging a try, everyone laughs at his efforts. But Finklehopper learns that it’s best to be himself and do what he loves--because that’s the perfect way for him!

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.

“Livingston’s rhythms echo Finklehopper’s bounce and blithe spirit, and encourage youngsters to be happy with their own best efforts.”
--Publishers Weekly

“An entertaining read-aloud.” --
School Library Journal

“The rhythmic text will be fun to read aloud, and the story may encourage kids to get up and do some hopping of their own.” --
Booklist
