Summary

Froggie can't wait to meet Goose and Gander's new baby, Gosling! He and Rabbit spend all day preparing: they bake a cake, toss a salad, and find the perfect picnic spot. Froggie picks out his favorite toys and books to share and even makes up a new song. But when Gosling finally arrives, she takes one look at Froggie and...HOOOOOOONK!

Froggie doesn't know what to do! Gosling's not tired or hungry or thirsty, but she keeps crying anyway. Gander and Goose can't console her. Neither can Rabbit. Just when all seems hopeless, Froggie's natural charm and great silliness turn Gosling's tears into smiles and her honks into giggles.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this third Froggie and Rabbit story, the animals prepare for a visit from Goose, Gander, and brand-new Gosling, but after their friends' arrival, Froggie is so alarmed by Gosling's loud cries that he hides. In the end, however, it is Froggie who knows how to soothe the fussy youngster. Although somewhat lengthy, the descriptive, peppy prose, filled with engaging sounds and repetition, will encourage lively read-alouds. Children will enjoy the amusing details in the vibrant artwork, which depicts the expressive characters in familiar activities, from taking a bubble bath to frosting a cake. Another entertaining adventure in the series.--Rosenfeld, Shelle Copyright 2009 Booklist"
