froggy went a courtin'

February 15, 2010

I've mentioned this song book several times before, so I thought it was time to share it with you! This has become one of our very favorite songs to sing together at bedtime. The tune is so catchy that we find ourselves singing it at other times during the day as well!

Frog Went A-Courtin'

Frog Went A-Courtin', Illustrated by Feodor Rojankovsky

Frog has just asked Miss Mousie to marry him and this is what she says, "Without my Uncle Rat's consent, I would not marry the president!" (That's my President's Day tie-in! Weak, I know!) 

I've written about my chair obsession before. This page just makes me drool. I want one of EACH! 

I love this wedding cake!

This page makes me laugh. A funnel?! What kind of party is this?! (Actually, he's drinking castor oil because "he ate so much it made him sick.")

The cat attack in the end is one of our favorite parts. Juliet loves to make the screeching sound effects here. 

In the end, the frog and the mouse sail to France! (Sounds like a good honeymoon to me!)

Hopefully, you can find a copy in your library! It's beautiful. You have to see the rest of it.
