Little Tree Frog woke that morning in May
and readied himself for Jamboree Day.
Then he hip-hop-hurried round far and near
to tell everyone the day was here.
'Now scrub your necks and shine your shoes
and call your cousins and spread the news!'
“A bright green frog with a…megaphone stands in front of his house in a lush jungle setting, then hops from place to place to tell the other animals that it is Jamboree Day. In bouncing, hand-clapping, toe-tapping rhyme, Frog exhorts the animals to ‘spread the news!’ From crocodiles to cuckoos, they dance, march, fly, and row to the jamboree…this is fun for storytime or one-on-one and children will join in and ask for repeats.”
