Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

"You know, Toad," said Frog with his mouth full, "I think we should stop eating. We will soon be sick." "You are right," said Toad. "Let us eat one last cookie, and then we will stop." Many "last cookies" later, Frog and Toad come up with an ingenious solution to their uncontrolled cookie consumption.

This pair of amphibian pals likes to do everything together, from list making to flower growing to dragon vanquishing. And when Toad bakes cookies one day, the two try to develop willpower together. The Frog and Toad series, including Frog and Toad Are Friends, Frog and Toad All Year, and Days with Frog and Toad, is perfect for new readers. Simple text and charming, frog-hued pictures combined with sensitive, funny, original stories show children what real friendship is all about. This Newbery Honor Book perpetuates and confirms Frog and Toad's status as children's classics. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Review

"Five tales that are a masterpiece of child-styled humor and sensitivity." -- -- School Library Journal

Format: Paperback
Frog and Toad have been around for years - I think of these asthe first series books my older children read. Once a child startsreading (with Frog and Toad Are Friends), the second, third and fourth books are welcome friends themselves.
This book, published in 1971, is the second of four. Toad is a bit negative and nervous, and worries about rules, while Frog is often cheerful and dedicated to alleviating Toad's fears and doubts.
"A List" is a funny story remembered long after reading it - Toad has a list of things to do, and anything not on the list can't be done. He loves to do something, then cross it off. But what happens when your list blows away, and "run after the list" wasn't even on the list. Worse, you can't remember what else was on the list. Frog is such a good friend, he just sits quietly with Toad as he struggles to figure out what to do.
In "The Garden," Toad would like to have a garden like Frog has, and with Frog's encouragement, he starts one. He tries directing the garden to grow, until Frog (hearing all that shouting) gives him some advise on how to nurture a garden.
"Cookies" is probably one of the best stories. Frog and Toad make cookies, and they are so good that they can't stop eating them. They determine its about will power, and in the end they end up with no cookies "but we have lots and lots of will power." Frog says.
"Dragons and Giants" is about Frog and Toads fears and how they deal with them. "We are not afraid!" Frog and Toad screamed at the same time. A funny story that children will like.

Hi my name is Sergio, and I am in 3rd grade. I am 9 years old. The book that I read is Frog and Toad Together. It is by Arnold Lobel. The stories are called the List, the Garden, Cookies, and Dragons and Giants. The last story is "The Dream." The story I liked is Dragons and Giants. I like that one because Frog and Toad think they were not brave. So they end up being brave together.
I like the book because it was cool reading about Frog and Toad. I think little boys and girls will like this book. I would give this book five stars. Boys and girls even in 1st, 2nd, and 3th grade can read this book. I give it 5 stars because I like this book.

All of the stories in this book are delightful but "The List" is by far our favorite. Who hasn't had a day like that?

Format: Paperback
Frog and Toad are two great friends who prefer spending every day with each other. Your children will smile as they read along with you.
In "Frog and Toad Together," they talk walks, do things on a checklist, eat too many cookies, learn about self-discipline (not eating too many cookies), and feed cookies to birds.
Somehow, Arnold Lobel has discovered a gentle yet honest way of presenting two childhood friends. They've got a warmth that is similar to Bert and Ernie, like loving brothers.
Lobel drew some great pictures too. There is a European classic-ness to them, and to the diction of the story.
I fully recommend this, and all of Lobel's books.

I love this book because it never gets old. I could just read it for hours and just never get board not even a little. I enjoy this book beginning to the end. When I am upset or mad I sit down and read a nice story of Frog and Toad Together. I am ten years old and have been reading Frog and Toad for years.

This is my 21 month old daughters favorite book, she especially loves the story about the cookies and cant wait to bake them. She goes to sleep to the audio tape and constantly wants to play frog and toad games. Its perfect.

I read this book when I was 6. To this day (32 years old now) I can still remember the book like it was yesterday. They were good friends experiencing everyday dilemas. Frog and Toad were my childhood favorites.
