I once saw amusing illustrations from this book, thinking that they were from the original edition of Wind in the Willows I picked this up when I realized they were in fact, JE books written not many decades ago Somehow, I had missed them when I was growing up.This little book is so charming For some reason, I couldn t stop smiling when reading this This is a series of short stories about the friendship of a pessimistic, anxious Toad and an optimistic, encouraging Frog Though Toad is quite depressive at times, he still cares deeply for his best friend, and goes to great lengths to keep Frog safe and brighten his day I couldn t help but think Toad was a little too relatable at times. This third of four Frog and Toad from Arnold Lobel provides five short stories describing the adventures of two friends throughout the seasons of the year From the time they come out of their winter s sleep to encounter the freshness of springtime, on through to their Christmas Eve spent together, Frog and Toad remain the best of friends despite their obvious yin and yang relationship Lobel s beautiful and soothingly colored drawings bring to life not only the funny adventures, but the disparate personalities of Frog and Toad The text is printed in large, easy to read font, and the crisp dialogue is easy for the beginning reader to follow This was a great favorite of mine as a child, and one that my own children now enjoy just as much It s a perfect way to show children the difference between optimism and pessimism, as well as portraying the joys and benefits of friendship Ages 4 8 Going to go see the play, so thought we should pregame since Trent didn t know who Frog or Toad were Now he s a fan find me ONE better book i dare u This took way longer than expected as a 2 day kitchen renovation has turned into a week long half the house renovation Good as always though 5 art5 storiesThis is a bit of nostalgia I ve loved these two since I was a kid The kind of book I ve just been waiting to read to Squirt There s an understated humour in these stories that really makes him laugh Best of all is the exploration of friendship Squirt won t be doing half bad if he learns what a friend is from Frog and Toad. This little book has a story about Frog and Toad for every season winter, spring, summer, fall, and a Christmas story I think this is the best collection in the Frog and Toad books Each story is fun Frog and Toad go sledding Frog tells Toad a story of waiting for Spring The two eat giant chocolate ice cream cones I love the illustrations because Toad always wraps his big mouth around the ice cream In Fall, the two rake each other s leaves secretly, but then the wind blows them away, so they ll never know And the Christmas story is a bleak tale, typical of the final story in these Frog and Toad books Toad worries that Frog has been eaten and he ll never spend another Christmas with him again But Frog arrives safely, and they have a pleasant Christmas Eve in front of the fire.
