This is actually a pretty good FAQ for people who are thinking about getting a frog for a pet.
I'm proud because it is from one of our local vet clinics here in Colorado Springs.

"A good Tree Frog for beginners is the White's Tree Frog. This frog has a funny personality and seems to be quite a popular pick. It should be warned however, that some children bore of the whites tree frog despite its funny personality, simply because they tend to just sit around a lot. Much of the behavior of the frogs however, can be traced to how much they eat (and how fat they get!). In addition, the Whites Tree frog is one of the few frogs that is fit to occasionally be handled, and it certainly has warmed the heart of many frog enthusiasts! In addition to dealing with crickets, the Whites tree frogs need a little more care than the Firebellies need, simply because they live best with humidity and are happiest when the tank is sprayed with water once or twice every day. However, as far as Tree-Frogs go, they are by far one of the easiest to deal with and hardiest species available to be kept as pets!" is this true so if its true than maybe the whites tree frog is a good choice

Your skin has oils and chemicals which could be harmful or even fatal to amphibians. Frogs absorb through their skin. Besides, frogs have toxins which could be harmful to you.
Additionally frogs are easily stressed and handling them can cause stress.
You should never handle your amphibians unless it is absolutely necessary for cleaning their habitat or for health checks.
