Frog Trouble

In honor of Spring, I bring you a stampede of frogs.

Frog Trouble and Eleven Other Pretty Serious Songs
For ages one to older than dirt
Songs and Illustrations by Sandra Boynton
Recording Artists include"
Alison Krause “End of a Summer Storm”
Dwight Yoakum “I’ve Got a Dog” 
Fountains of Wayne "Trucks"
Ben Folds "Broken Piano"
Other cool songs:
Alligator Stroll
Heartache Song
The hardcover book includes words and music for the songs, bios of the musicians, instructions for a paper frog puppet, and a cd with all twelve songs.
My boy's notes:
In the song, “I’ve Got a Dog”, It’s as if Dwight Yoakum was singing, “I’ve got a dawg.” The song “Trucks” started in the key of D, went down to C, went up to D-flat, and went back to D. There was a song that talked about when pigs really fly! What does deepest blue mean?
