Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. PreSchool-Grade 2—Mischievous, warmhearted, silly, and touching, this short collection of stories in rhyme trips easily off the tongue in true Arnold Lobel style. In playful fashion, they feature Miss Frog baking pies and sugar buns, two lazy toads contemplating the night, a bright green frog playing the violin, a school for squirming polliwogs, and an adventurous jumper—often with a surprise-ending twist. A poem about a frog party, for example, concludes with: "They danced in the meadow/They danced in the street/They danced in the lemonade/Just to cool their feet." Adrianne Lobel, a set designer by profession, catches just the right mood in applying frothy, airy colors to her father's line art. A short introduction reveals how the collection came to be some 20 years after Lobel's death. This delectable combination of word and image is a treat not to be missed.—Barbara Elleman, Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Amherst, MA END

About the Author

Arnold Lobel (1933-1987) was the award-winning author and illustrator of many beloved children's books, including the classic I Can Read books about Frog and Toad, and the Caldecott Medal winning Fables.



Adrianne Lobel grew up to be a noted set designer who also produced the Broadway musical A Year with Frog and Toad. Adrianne's discovery of several of her father's handmade books illustrated in pen and ink for family and friends led to this new picture book. An artist herself, Adrianne added color to prints of her father's line art using watercolors and dyes. Adrianne lives with her daughter in New York City.

Frog and Toad were a delightful duo that many children first learned about in the "I Can Read" series of books. You may have learned about being a best friend through this books all the while laughing at their antics. These classic books are still around, but now the discovery of a "lost" book will thrill you. No, we won't see a full story, but rather some wonderful, whimsical rhyming stories.

A Toad Was Feeling . . .

A toad was feeling
Sad and grumpy
Because his skin
was rough and lumpy.
"My skin is bad,"
Said he. "I'll hide it.'
He bought a coat
and jumped inside it.
"And now," he said,
"I do not worry . . .
Outside I'm nicely
Soft and furry."

I love these little miniature portraits of frogs and toads and think they would nicely compliment the original Frog and Toad books. In the front of the book Adriane Lobel discusses how these little "stories" were lost and rediscovered. She also briefly discusses her father, Arnold Lobel, and how she had to "shake [herself] of fear and to produce watercolors with the same freedom and effortlessness that approached" that her father used to create. I think she did a marvelous job and this book is worth adding to your timeless collection of Lobel books!

Great reading fun for small children. As a dad of a 3-yr old book critic, I'd say that both she and I recommend it!

I purchased this as a gift for my friend to read to her baby. She loves frogs and toads so I thought it would be well-accepted. I love the little rhymes. They are fun, but send a good message too. I think she will enjoy reading them and her son will enjoy them as he gets older.
A nice hardbound book.

Arnold Lobel's THE FROGS AND TOADS ALL SANG receives fine color drawings by Adrianne Lobel as it tells of singing frogs and toads in rhyming stories. A silly book celebrates the singing of the amphibians, with warm color drawings throughout.
