This book symbolizes true friendship ( )
  JessicaWestR | Nov 17, 2015 |
Summary: Frog & Toad are the best of friends. They go on many adventures together from baking cookies to growing a garden. They show how true friendship really works.

Personal Reaction: This is a great series for early readers. I love reading these with kids or listening to kids read to me. Fantastic books with a bit of humor.

Classroom Extension: Sequence the life cycle of a frog on construction paper.

Have the children individually read each book in the series and have a Frog & Toad Club Wall of Fame to track completion. ( )

Another Frog and Toad adventure, or adventures rather. Their bond and friendship and ability to be honest with each other helps them accomplish all that they do. Teaching of commitment and kindness and helpfulness Frog and Toad are never a disappointment. ( )

A great children's book with insights into the joys and perils of friendship. ( )
  Audacity88 | May 29, 2015 |
Frog and Toad Together is one book in the series of the four Frog and Toad books. Frog and Toad together has five chapters, and each chapter tells a different story. The first chapter is about Toad and Frog's adventures with Toad's to do list. The second chapter is about Frog's garden and Toad trying to grow his own flowers. In the next chapter, Toad baked cookies and brought them over to Frog's house. They can't stop eating the cookies so they put them in a box and give them to the birds. The next chapter is about Frog and Toad reading a book together. They attempt to be like the characters in the story they are reading and be brave. The final chapter is all about Toad's dream. This story is about friendship and all of the different types of things you can do with friends. As an activity, the student's could come up with their favorite activity they enjoy doing with friends. ( )

Book description
Similar to Days with Frog and Toad -- a collection of Frog and Toad stories in which the two are shown to be best friends who help each other out (despite not always making the most sensible decisions, either separately or together). A wonderful read for young children, with simple and comforting stories. Preschool-primary.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0064440214, Paperback)

"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
