This is a story about when toad made alist of things to do for him and frog. As the day went on everything that toad did he would cross off his list, for example get up, get dressed. On their day out the wind ended up blowing the list away. So they sat down and toad tried to think of what was on the list. Since he couldnt remember what was on his list he did not want to do anything because it wasnt on his list. So they say down by a rock and went to sleep because toad rememberd going to sleep was the last thing on his list.

Personal Experience:
As a child I remember my grandma reading this story to me several of times. I also remember reading this book in the school library.

Classroom Extensions:
1. After reading the story I would have the students make a list of things that they normally do in the day.
2. I would ask the students of other ways that toad and frog could have worked out the problem of losing the list. ( )

This is a great transitional chapter book about two best friends Frog and Toad. The text is very simple and is great for first, second, and third graders who are working up to the level of reading full chapter books. The two always back each other up and show the reader what a true friendship look like. For example, Frog has an amazing garden that is an inspiration for Toad's and with Frog's help, Toad builds his own. Each story in this chapter book are short and simple, yet enjoyable so it makes for an easy read that flows with ease for beginning chapter book readers. The illustrations are simple as well, but go along with the story perfectly and give readers a visual of exactly what is happening on each page. The main idea of this story is to be a good friend who always support and defend one another. ( )

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
