    1. To be making books for children is to be in a sort of state of grace.- Arnold LobelBooks have their own special resonance in the portion of our brain that holds Nostalgia. Those stories of our youth, when the life-long joys of reading were just begin to flourish, are often some of the most special. Those of us fortunate enough to have cut our teeth on Arnold Lobel’s Frog and Toad series have experienced all of the great things of reading twice: the first is when we read these touching, funny a [...]

    2. I simply adore the supremely and sweetly cute and delightful accompanying illustrations. They are tenderly caressing and evocative, and in my opinion, actually tell the story of frog and toad's friendship in a way that the rather simplistic narrative just does not and cannot. I know that Frog and Toad Are Friends is a classic of American children's literature and that for many, the book likely holds very fond and nostalgic childhood memories. However, I have always found Arnold Lobel's presented [...]

    3. Frog and Toad are my spirit animals. I love them. Sometimes, I'm Frog, who seems to be the suaver, gentler one of the pair. Mostly here though, I'm Toad, who is electrically charged and loud, can be sad for small reasons, throws occasional tantrums, and loses things. Lobel crafted this amphibian duo with love and care, which is apparent from beginning to end. The illustrations are comforting and classic; the greens, browns, ochres, dijon mustards of the palette are perfect for this world. The pl [...]

    4. "THE WHOLE WORLD IS COVERED IN BUTTONS AND NOT ONE OF THEM IS MINE!!!" Haha, oh, gosh, I can SO relate to that sometimes ;-) And to poor Toad, looking all over for his missing button, finding many others but not his! But, the nice thing is, he has his best friend Frog to help him look. And when he finds out he has caused Frog a big inconvenience, Toad does something very nice for his friend. This beautiful give-and-take of friendship is so masterfully captured in Arnold Lobel's charming classic. [...]

    5. I miss quiet cheerfulness like Frog and Toad. I enjoyed very much the whole 15 minutes it took me to read the 5 stories in here.I couldn't read it to the kids at my job (the story is geared toward much younger children than those who would understand the book as esl learners), which is a shame. That said, it merits repeated reading as an adult. It cheered me up darned well.Yes, it's cowardly to give a Caldecott Honor book five stars. It was fun. I wish I had a friend like this. It's been a good [...]

    6. 5*This was so funny. I want to talk about the funny parts, but I don't want to spoil it.pdf:arvindguptatoys/arvind

    7. There's one story where Toad and Frog go swimming. Toad can't go in the water without a swimsuit, for some reason, and he's embarrassed by how he looks in it, so he makes Frog look the other way while Toad gets dressed and jumps in the water. Later when it's time to come out Toad tells Frog to look away, but then a mouse overhears and the mouse's ears perk up at the sound of potential embarrassment. "Ooh I gotta see this!" More and more animals are drawn by the prospect of a spectacle, until see [...]

    8. Such a pity I didn't get to read this book as a child.Every time Toad would speak I'd just go, "I feel you" and "This dude really gets me".

    9. Toad the not-zen gardener yells at his seeds "Now seeds, start growing!" That is just about where I am with all my plans in life.Yep, me with a little pitchfork prodding inanimate objects while yelling, "Move it!"I find something new every time I reread Arnold Lobel.

    10. “Frog and Toad Are Friends” is a Caldecott Honor Book from Arnold Lobel about two amphibian pals, Frog and Toad who go through life together. “Frog and Toad Are Friends” is definitely a brilliant introduction to the “Frog and Toad” series that children will love!Arnold Lobel’s book about true friendship has truly deserved the honorable Caldecott Honor award. Arnold Lobel makes this story truly delightful as he pairs up Frog, a free-spirited character with Toad, a somewhat grumpy ye [...]

    11. There's Lucy and Ethel, there's Felix and Oscar, there's George and Martha, and there's Frog and Toad. Another great pair. Shelved in the easy reader section of the library (or stashed on our bookshelves in a horribly disorganized manner at home), these books rise above so many of the learn how to read books because of the stories and characters. Nothing is sacrificed to easy vocabulary. These are great stories - funny, poignant, silly - stories that are a great reward to parents because they ca [...]

    12. This is an “I Can Read Book” level 2 (High-interest stories for developing readers) children’s picture book that has 64 pages and 5 chapters.I would have adored this book when I was a beginning reader, but unfortunately it was published 10-12 years too late. I’d assumed I’d read the Frog and Toad books but after just reading this first book, I’m thinking it was my first time reading it.Thanks to the Children's Books group for alerting me to it. I’ve found so many worthy picture boo [...]

    13. Frog and Toad are friends. It's right there in the title. These amphibious Bert-and-Ernies spent their days taking walks and swimming, at least when one is not depressed in bed and the other is trying to cheer him up. Three of the five stories in the book involve at least one of them wanting to stay in bed all day. The other is a cute story about a button that teaches contrasting words -- thick/think, round/square, etc. And the last is a story about Toad's funny bathing suit. Everyone laughs at [...]

    14. Lobel, Arnold. (1970). Frog and Toad Are Friends. New York, NY: Harper Collins.Annotation: For children in first to third grade. This book is a collection of five stories about the strong friendship between the neurotic Toad and rational Frog. Children enjoy these stories because they can see themselves in the characters and they relate to the experiences Frog and Toad encounter. Arnold Lobel’s roundness of characters and tones of greens, yellows, and browns is comforting to children, as well [...]

    15. Through five engaging stories, the friendship between Frog and Toad is on display as they look for lost buttons, greet spring weather, and wait for mail. Each simple plot is resolved in a few pages, usually through a clever manner: the buttons are refashioned as embellishments on Frog’s jacket, Toad finally wakes up in time to enjoy spring, and Toad receives the best pen pal he could ask for: his friend, Frog.The text features short sentences with both monosyllabic and multisyllabic words, and [...]

    16. I used this for my 2016 challenge as "The first chapter book you ever remember reading." I was crazy about the frog and toad books when I was little. They were always a fun read.

    17. Whenever I hit a reading slump, there are a few different things I do depending on what kind of reading slump I’m in (because, yes, there are different levels.) If I don’t feel like reading, then I don’t. I do other things & try not to push it (unless it’s been too long and I’m getting behind on my reading goal, then I might try one of the other things.) If I do want to read, but nothing is holding my attention, I usually turn to graphic novels, comic books & manga, because I [...]

    18. I loved this book! It's sweetness was absolutely charming! I had not heard of this book until a friend mentioned it. She said it was one of her favorites and now, I can see why.

    19. I read this because of this:newyorker/books/page-tI'm fortunate to have a couple of frogs to my toad, and I sent them the link - and told them I wanted to be the toad, although I supposed I could be the frog if being the toad was important to them. They agreed I could be the toad."Did you read that when you were a kid?" Dom asked, and I told him that I almost definitely had, although I was generally unimpressed at that age with any story that didn't have smugglers or counterfeiters, pirates, or [...]

    20. A great book of short stories about two friends, Frog and Toad. I remember these stories from my childhood. They are classics that have withstood the test of time. We really enjoyed reading this book together. This story was selected as one of the books for the February 2012 - Friendship reads at the Picture-Book Club in the Children's Books Group here at .

    21. Great book for kids who have just learned to read. My 10 year old claims this was one of her favorite and insisted I read it to our 4 year old.

    22. Обожавам Frog и Toad, историята "Писмото" ми е особено любима от тази книга.

    23. I've been away and quickly find myself behind - oh, the panic! It seems like a good time to review some classics . . . Frog and Toad. I'd like to think everyone between the ages of 30-40 can picture the cover, a favorite page, or specific moment in the series. It was required for all at some point in early elementary to read, read, and read again a Frog and Toad book correct? Lobel did create a friendship and series worthy of memorable rereads, however, as I love the series. I have many of these [...]

    24. I already read some books by the author, but never this one, so it was time to finally do it. The stories weren't captivating, but there were some twists or funny moments. They helped well to create a warm atmosphere and showed nicely the friendship of the 2 amphibians. The art gave a pleasant oldschool tone to the read.

    25. I love this book! :D I went with a good friend of mine to Barnes and Noble and at one point we were looking at Nooks and this book was in there. I thought the cover was cute and I'm a fan of frogs so I decided to read it. My friend knows I love reading so she didn't mind. She went to look at magazines. Anyway, this is a nice, cute, and sometimes silly book about what friendship should be like. It also has funny illustrations to go along with this book. Frog and Toad have an awesome friendship de [...]
