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. ( )

In this delightful fantasy tale, Frog and Toad deal with several dilemmas. In one chapter, Toad can't stop eating the delicious cookies that Frog baked. In another chapter, Toad loses his To-Do List. As Frog and Toad encounter a variety of circumstances, they learn how to overcome the obstacles that they face.

Summary
Toad made cookies and brought them to Frog. They couldn’t stop eating the cookies because they were the most delicious cookies ever. They kept trying to stop eating the cookies but they couldn’t. So Frog thought of different ways that could help them stop eating but Toad kept finding ways that they could still be able to eat the cookies. Finally Frog called the birds over to them and gave them all the cookies so now there were no cookies. Toad decided to bake a cake because there were no more cookies.
Personal Reaction
I liked this book and the children did too. The children were very interested and thought it was amusing when Frog would come up with ways he could eat the cookies while Toad was trying to stop them from eating them.
Extension
We could do a food reaction and make homemade cookies. We could make our very own bird feeders and hang them outside.

Summary: Frog and Toad Together is definitely a wonderful classic! It is about two friends, a frog and a toad. They go on many adventures in this book. The adventures are in short stories or chapters if you will.

Personal Reaction: I have always loved this book. There are so many adventures that Frog and Toad go on and they always have each other's backs. I feel like they are the true definition and example of friendship.

Extension Ideas: Discussing and reading classics would be a good time to read this, or when discussing Newberry Award Winners. Other good times to read this book in the class would be when lessons are about friendship, reptiles, amphibians, adventures, or working together.

Summary of Book: Frog was in his garden when toad came over. Toad noticed frogs garden and wished he had a garden like frogs. So, frog gave toad some seeds to grow his very own garden. Toad was very impatient with his seeds, that be began yelling at the seeds because they weren't growing. Frog told toad to leave the seeds alone for a few days to let the seeds get water and sunlight. The seeds still didn't begin to grow so toad thought the seeds were afraid of the dark. So toad, brought the seeds candles and sang songs to the seeds. Finally one day the seeds began to sprout and toad thought finally the seeds aren't afraid anymore.

Personal Reaction: This book is a good book about friendship and how patience is important. Readers can learn that it takes hard work and dedication to make things grow. Just like toad learning how to be patience is important and pays off in the end.

Classroom Extension: 1) Have students make their own plants. Give the students seeds to plant in cups.
2) Have students check seeds everyday and have students write in there journal if there was any change in the growth of their seed.

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
