Freddy's class is visiting the news station and he is so excited to show all of his friends around! But when a report comes in about a major snowstorm heading their way, Freddy begins to get worried---especially when the Mayor and Polly don't seem to be worried at all. Freddy must find a different way of preparing for completely different weather. . . and he creates a Big Blizzard Kit that is filled with bottled water, energy bars, flashlights and more---everything a froggy would need to keep warm and safe during a freezing storm.
There's a blizzard blowing toward Lilypad and someone has to warn the frogs! Frog News Network meteorologist Sally Croaker is busy in the newsroom and Polly Woggins is preparing for live broadcasts in the snow. It's up to Freddy the Frogcaster to spread the news and get everyone prepared for the snow storm!
