    Highly Recommended

    As a child I read Frog and Toad are Friends. It was so brilliant and entertaining and had morals that even adults need to learn from. I'm an adult, and I still would love to look over the book for fun. You're never too old to read Frog and Toad are Friends.

    Heart warming classic

    As a child, I adored Frog and Toad. Used to daydream about living next door and sharing their adventures. I bought this for my niece, and read it to her all the time, and find that I love the stories just as much now as I did back then, and so does she.

    Lots of fun!

    The vocabulary from school is used in the books. Fun for adults, too! Great pictures.

    Great Fun with Frog and Toad

    I bought this book for my grandson who is in first grade. He has enjoyed others in this series, so he was anxious to use his reading skills to share this book with me. Each story was good for predicting the end and chuckle at Frog's and Toad's latest adventure.

    Wonderfully written stories that teach children about relationships.

    My son's first grade teacher gives all her students "Frog and Toad are Friends" as a Birthday gift. After reading it I knew why this is one of her favorite books. My son and I enjoyed it so much I bought the whole series. The stories are wonderful to read. I have never seen a book with such sweet stories of kindness, friendship and relationships. It is a must have for every child.

    5-year-old loves Frog and Toad Together

    My 5-year-old is learning to read, and this is her favorite book so far (as in, she reads it to us most nights).
