Product Description

From Amazon

Frog and Toad agreed: it was a perfect day for a swim. And Frog was kind enough not to look at Toad in his bathing suit, per Toad's request. But when the swimming was over, a crowd had gathered to see Toad in his funny-looking suit, and neither Frog nor Toad could make them leave.

The endearing pair hop along through five enchanting stories, looking for lost buttons, greeting the spring, and waiting for mail. Their genuine care for each other makes Frog and Toad two of the finest amphibious role models around. Young readers will chuckle with Frog as they watch Toad's silly efforts to make up a story. And they will applaud Toad as he finally wakes up after hibernating all winter. The fifth story will warm the hearts of any would-be pen pal--or anyone who has ever known what it's like to have a true-blue (or green) friend.

Arnold Lobel's comfortable brown and green illustrations invite and delight every reader, setting the tone for warm, funny stories about friendship. A Caldecott Honor Book and finalist for the National Book Award for Children's Literature, this installment of Lobel's classic Frog and Toad series is another essential addition to any youngster's shelf. If you need even more of Frog and Toad, don't miss Frog and Toad Together, Frog and Toad All Year, and Days with Frog and Toad. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.


"The give-and-take of a fast friendship between Frog and Toad is gently affectionate." -- -- C.

"[The stories] have freshness, humor, and a beguiling childlike simplicity." -- -- H.

5.0 out of 5 stars perennial favourite and a keeper for my shelves Feb. 2 2012
By Nicola Mansfield HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Reason for Reading: Son read aloud to me as his reader.

The first book in the Frog and Toad series and a Caldecott honor winner this book introduces us to the now classic characters with the familiar format of five short stories of their friendship. Of two different natures, they bring out the best in each other and enjoy life and nature to the fullest. The simple stories will delight young and old alike. My son, now on the old side for these books, but just at the perfect reading level for him, still enjoys the simple, honest humour found within the pages. He enjoyed this book and wants to read the last one we still have left in the series to read. A perennial favourite and a keeper for my shelves!

5.0 out of 5 stars Friendship. Just the perfect blendship. July 6 2004
Recently I had the exceedingly wonderful chance to see the new musical of "Frog and Toad" at the Minneapolis Children's Company. A fabulous production in and of itself, it got me to thinking about the original books on which the musical is based. Like many children I was raised on such books as the lovely, "Frog and Toad Are Friends" and I've remembered some of the stories fairly well. It's amazing to me that Arnold Lobel was able to write stories that are patient simple without ever being dull or pedantic. These stories are clear and concise and unaccountably lovely. For your average early reader I not only recommend, "Frog and Toad Are Friends" but I recommend it to the reader's parents, grandparents, school crossing guards, dentists, air traffic controllers, and anybody else who might just happen to be able to speak the English language.

In "Frog and Toad Are Friends" the book consists of roughly five short stories. The first is one of my favorites. In it, Frog has decided to wake Toad from his hibernation and introduce him to the new spring. Toad's response is, "Blah". Frog tries a number of different methods of luring his friend into the warm beautiful day, the most touching of which is his simple argument, "But, Toad, I will be lonely". Frog's eventual solution is to fast-forward Toad's calendar a little, making it instantly May. Toad is a little shocked at the date but he's happy to see the spring weather. In the second tale, Frog is sick and Toad attempts to take care of him. His different methods of coming up with a story to tell his friend inevitably lead to his own illness, however, and soon it is Frog telling Toad a story instead. The story "A Lost Button" shows Frog and Toad out looking for one of Toad's lost buttons.

5.0 out of 5 stars My almost 3 year old's favorite July 3 2004
By Keith
The three book collection was hidden on my son's shelf from the time he received it from our priest as a gift when he was a new born. I found it a couple of months ago, and since then we have been reading the stories every evening and often during the day too. No matter how many of the stories I have read, my son asks for more and more. Since I have to read the stories every night, I am happy that they are adorable and entertaining for even the adult.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love Frog and Toad March 11 2004
By A Customer
Frog and Toad Are Friends is a great book. Frog is smart. Toad is not. Toad just copies other people. Frog thinks for himself. Frog and Toad are best friends, and they take care of each other. I like the pictures in this book. They tell a lot about the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic tale of eternal friendship Feb. 21 2004
This is a beautiful and touching tale with lovely illustrations.
But instead of buying this alone, I suggest you buy the FROG AND TOAD TREASURY which includes the first three FROG AND TOAD volumes together in one edition. Then get DAYS WITH FROG AND TOAD and you'll have them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adventurously Good March 16 2003
Format:Library Binding
This is a book that I grew up reading. I think that it is a great book. It has many adventurous stories in it. Some parts of it are funny. I like how they use a frog and toad for the characters, it makes the story a little more interesting. The book also involves a little bit of trickery. I would definitely recommend this to kids that want to read a good book. It contains some good points throughtout the book. It also shows about friendship. I really liked this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book+cassette great for non-readers Dec 29 2002
Santa brought the book+cassette version of Frog and Toad to our 3 year old for Christmas and she has already listened to it about 20 times. (Although the package says it's for ages 6 to 9, frankly, I think it would be too babyish for kids that old.) Listening to the cassette is perfect for pre-readers and it will help develop aural skills too -- a quality sorely lacking in our visual culture.
The audio version is read by the author. He does a good job of making it lively to listen to. The use of music adds to the aural experience for kids.
I am now on the search for more of these book/cassette combos because they provide Mommy and Daddy with a few minutes of peace with a simple, but educational, activity that our VERY busy 3 year old can do on her own.

5.0 out of 5 stars K-2 Teachers: Must buy! Nov. 16 2002
By A Customer
An excellent book for teaching across the curriculum! Science and Math.
Frog and toad actually posess many characteristics of real frogs and toads! Frog is more energetic and moves faster than toad, they hibernate etc.
Also check out the Gems guide called "Frog Math" which has a whole series of math activities to go with the Frog and Toad stories for K-2 students.
I have taught K-02 and all of my students LOVE Frog and Toad and they are well worth reading if you are teaching about Amphibians.
I am distressed that the Spanish translation was done in error! They call Frog "Sapo"(which means toad!)and Toad is called "Sepo".
