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! ( )

In my opinion this is a great book for children. Frog and Toad Together is a children’s book with five different chapters, each telling different stories about their lives. Each story is clever and relates to the overall message of friendship. The language throughout is clear and easy to read. The writing is organized and flows well which helps keeps the reader engaged. Lastly, the illustrations are simple, yet very detailed. For example, when Toad's list blows away, both the Frog and Toad are illustrated as shocked and gazing at the list floating in the wind. ( )

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. ( )

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
