Frog and Toad are best friends—they do everything together. When Toad admires the flowers in Frog's garden, Frog gives him seeds to grow a garden of his own. When Toad bakes cookies, Frog helps him eat them. And when both Frog and Toad are scared, they are brave together. The School and Library Journal called this beloved story collection from Arnold Lobel "a masterpiece of child-styled humor and sensitivity." Winner of the Newbery Honor award, Frog and Toad Together is a Level Two I Can Read book, geared for kids who read on their own but still need a little help. Supports the Common Core Learning Standards

I love the cookie story! I think it can teach a really good lesson about will power and making hard choices. Frog and Toad are so relatable and funny! ( )

This book is great for early readers. The stories are short and not too complex, but still include compound sentences and other complexities. I would use this book for my students as a guided reading, to help them along but to still have them read it on their own. This book would be good for 2nd graders who are able to read on their own. It would still be a challenge, but the simple sentences make it manageable.

Frog and Toad was a great book. Frog and Toad are best friends and are always there for each other. This book meets the requirements of fantasy by: being pretend (frogs do not really talk, walk, and live in houses), it was very realistic to what a humans life would be (humans plant gardens, make to-do lists, and the other stuff frog and toad was up to.), and we, as the audience, were able to imagine ourselves in frog and toads shoes. We were able to relate to them.

This is a great book for students that are just now becoming independent readers! This book has several stories backed into one book making it a very interesting read! I would highly recommend this for students beginning to read! ( )

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
