Review: Three Dancing Frogs

Book your ticket now for a front row performance by the Three Dancing Frogs. This beautifully illustrated and choreographed story features three frogs who love ballet dancing and simply want to entertain their friends.

This rhyming story showcases a cast of Australian animals who are all eager to watch as they are being part of the fun. The illustrations have that classic, yet modern Australian feel, there is no mistaking the authenticity of this story.

The creatively crafted words provide the story’s rhythm that matches the beat of the dancing frogs and their supporting orchestra. The musical beat gives the story heart that will instantly resonate with children, capturing their attention.

Lush grasslands, gum trees in the breeze, blue sapphire skies that change colour to the deep purple of an approaching storm – gives the story an electric feel and the ambience of an impending performance.

The reader can almost hear the orchestra strike up a tune. The Australian bush provides a magical canvas for the story to shine; banksias, humming cicadas and overflowing billabongs.

Opening night arrives – will all their hard work come together? Or will someone forget their lines?

Get comfy and settle in for a story your child will want you to read over and over again.
