Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Arnold Lobel's untimely death in 1987 robbed the children of the world of much, but fortunately his best beloved characters live on. This boxed set of paperback versions of his Frog and Toad trilogy (now in the guise of "An I Can Read Book") includes the Caldecott Honor Book Frog and Toad Are Friends (1970), the Newbery Honor Book Frog and Toad Together (1971), and Frog and Toad All Year (1976.) Lobel's subtle color-washed illustrations still have the feeling of antique, hand-tinted etchings. His equally subtle stories still have the power to move and warm readers and young listeners. Frog is still ever optimistic; Toad still the pessimist waiting for proof of life's simple pleasures. Little things like buttons, or a letter from a friend, or winter snow, expand exponentially in Lobel's skilled hands. There have been many imitations in the years since these books first appeared, but no one has equaled the originals. May Frog and Toad live forever. 2004, HarperTrophy, Ages 4 to 8.

Love this series of book and it brings back lots of great memories at the library! My son who is in 1st grade loves the characters and for me, the sections are short yet challenging and terrific to really help him with comprehension.

I love to give these books. They are stories about friendship. I gave the books to several interracial families. They appreciate that the stories are not about blue eyed, blonds. All children can identify with these characters, who have well balanced, kindly, sweetly humorous human behaviors. I received an email from a mother, saying that after reading the stories to her son many times, her six year old just started to read the stories to her! from Grandma-B

I Can Read makes has a whole line of these kinds of books for different reading levels for your child. The ones we have are for level 2 readers but I am just reading them to my son for now and they are the perfect bedtime stories.
