|Who is Keroppi the Frog?|
|Recently featured in the New York Times and Seventeen Magazine, the
dynamic Keroppi is rapidly becoming one of the hottest characters in the country. He's brought to
you by Sanrio, the same company that brings you the tremendously successful Hello Kitty. Keroppi's
image can be found on over 300 products in the U.S.
He lives on Donut Pond, and is the natural leader of a large group of friends. Together, they explore their world, making new friends. As Keroppi said to his pal Christopher who was moving out of town, "Don't forget to write!"
|Why is he called Keroppi (ke ro` pee)?|
|In the United States, we pronounce frog croaking as "ribbit, ribbit;" in England,
many interpret the sound as "brakket, brakket." In Japan, however, frogs say "kero, kero." When
you say "Keroppi," you're calling him just like his friends do!
Lucinda Karstedt, Educational Consultant for the Keroppi Day Hopper, states, "I have found, in the word-processing elementary computer lab, that the key to a successful language arts/writing program is the relevance of the material to the students. The Keroppi Day Hopper personal journal fits this requirement."
