The “Frog and Toad” series
written and illustrated by Arnold Lobel
Arnold Lobel wrote this series of books featuring little stories about kindred spirits Frog and Toad over 30 years ago and they have become award-winning, timeless classics. They are the kind of books you read as a kid and you will read to your children and grandchildren. There are four books in the original series: Frog and Toad are Friends, Frog and Toad Together, Frog and Toad All Year and Days with Frog and Toad. The books even inspired a 2003 off-Broadway musical that was nominated for three Tony awards. Each chapter book contains five stand-alone stories suitable for beginner readers and story-lovers of all ages. From a writer’s viewpoint, each story is absolute perfection. Short and sweet, warm and funny, they are all about the beauty of life and the bond of friendship, no matter what species you are.
