Quotes & Awards

  • “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...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.”

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Campbell | 1/12/2014

    " I think the frog and toad books are good because they're interesting and they're about frogs that are trying to solve things that are sort of like mysteries. I like that they have mysteries, because mysteries are my favorite kind of books. Frog and toad are also cool because I like how they make their habitat and everything like a frog would be, the only thing that is unrealistic is mail and houses and beds. "
