Froggy se Viste - Easy Spanish reader by Jonathan London. Recommended in Lesson 10 - La ropa - of the Sonrisas Elementary Curriculum Level 1.
The tale always delights children and in the classroom, it serves as a meaningful and fun way to introduce or review clothing words. Froggy wakes from hibernation in the middle of the winter. Despite his mother's urgings to go back to sleep, he is determined to go out and play. He puts on different articles of clothing, each with its own fun sound effect. Each time he ventures out, his mother reminds him that he has forgotten something, prompting him to go back inside, undress, and start again. He becomes so exhausted that he decides it is easier to just stay asleep. This story is just as hilarious in Spanish as it is in English. Storytellers will enjoy making sounds that will encourage young listeners to participate in the telling. The cartoonlike illustrations and funny facial expressions make this a wonderful read-aloud.
