Overview

In 1957, Harper published its first I Can Read title, Little Bear, written by Else Holmelund Minarik and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. Large type, simple vocabulary, chapter-like divisions, and decorative pictures made Little Bear perfect for emerging readers-they could read the story comfortably and not feel overwhelmed by the text. Following suit came such classics as Peggy Parish's Amelia Bedelia series, Lillian Hoban's books about Arthur the monkey, and Syd Hoff's popular Danny and the Dinosaur. Many books in this series are special in the depth of emotion evoked - Little Bear, the Frog and Toad books by Arnold Lobel, and Daniel's Duck by Clyde Bulla, to name a few - and all are enjoyed by children of all ages. Grade 1 - Grade 3.

Days with Frog and Toad is one of four in a series by Arnold Lobel. He wrote other I Can Read Books, but those about Frog and Toad have been my family¿s favorites. The suggested age range is 4 to 8, but I¿m a grandmother and I still love them. They¿re great early readers for children, and each story provides a lesson to be learned. In this book, we learn about the wisdom of not putting off `til tomorrow what can be done today (Tomorrow); perseverance...keep trying (The Kite); the fun of feeling safely scared (Shivers); how easily we can be delightfully deceived when we want to be (The Hat); and how jumping to conclusions may turn out to be just the opposite of what we imagined (Alone). The gray, brown and green tones of the drawings are easy on the eyes, are simple and just a hint comical, befitting the characters. Frog and Toad are the best of friends and no matter what happens, or how much one may misunderstand the other on occasion, they always end up spending an enjoyable time together. Carolyn Rowe Hill

I think this is a very good book because you can learn some more stuff about friend ship. Days with Frog and Toad is mostly about friendship. I think you should read Days with Frog and Toad because it helps you learn more not to brag about any thing. Frog and Toad help out the readers who are reading there books. Toad wants to play with Frog every morning. Frog and Toad are almost with other every hour. Frog asks Toad if he wants to tell him a scary story. Toad wants to wear Frogs beautiful birthday present. It took me a day to read Days with Frog and Toad. Read Days With Frog and Toad. Thank you for reading my Opinion.

I had purchased this for my son as a nook book but Barnes & Noble failed to make it clear that you can only read kids nook books on Nook HD and Nook HD+, so after telling him we bought him this book we had to tell him that he could not read it since we could not open it. Barnes & Noble needs to make it clear on these books that they are only compatible with certain devices, I should not have to go searching for the answer as to why I cannot open it. Very disappointed.
