Frog and Toad stand up to the test of time! These are great stories for early readers, but fun for the adult who is assisting the young reader. Frog and Toad share many adventures and many of them are very silly, but through it all they remain fast friends. ( )

I liked this book, it was a fantasy. I liked that it preps readers to read more difficult novels. It is a stepping stone from picture books, to chapter books. It also teaches valuable lessons to kids, about how to have good, positive friendships.This book has five stories about flowers, cookies, bravery, dreams, and, most of all, friendship. 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. ( )

Frog and Toad Together is a short chapter book that is about a close friendship between two friends that are always together. The book has 5 chapters in it and they each tell different stories about their lives. All of the stories are extremely different, but some of my favorite is The Garden and Cookies. In The Garden, Frog give Toad some seeds to start his very own garden, with the warning that having a garden was a lot of work. Toad took on the challenge and did everything that he could to have his seeds grow. Once his seeds blossomed, he realized how much hard work really pays off in the end. Cookies is a chapter on the practice of will power. Toad made cookies to share with Frog, they were the best cookies ever, but they didn't want to eat all of them so they came up with different ideas to not eat the cookies. This book would be a great book to read during different parts of the year. I would read The Garden towards the end of the year to keep my students motivated to work hard. This would also be a great take-home book for students to read with their guardians. Genre: fantasy. ( )

When Toad bakes cookies, Frog helps him eat them. And when both Frog and Toad are scared, they are brave. I remember reading Frog and Toad when I was a kid. They are kid transition books.

"Toad looked at the sunshine coming through the window. 'Frog,' he said, 'I am so glad that you came over.'

"'I always do,' said Frog.

"Then Frog and Toad ate a big breakfast.

"And after that they spent a fine, long day together." ( )

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
