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.

After reading this well written book to myself, I thought it was funny and in good prose. Not only good for children learning to read, but for the parents, as well.

When I first learned to read, this became an instant favorite. It is a great teaching tool. I recommend it to parents of 4-6 year-olds to get them to start reading as they enter pre-school and kindergarten. I also recommend it to those who grew up loving it as much as I did! You will have fun reading an old favorite!

¿One morning toad sat in bed. `I have many things to do,¿ he said.¿ Toad¿s morning sounds like my mornings! Immediately, I felt a connection with his character. The very first book I ever read was a Frog and Toad book. As a child, it was their undying friendship that kept me wanting to read more and more about their adventures. In this book, Frog and Toad help each other through their trials and tribulations ranging from making a list of ¿things to do¿ and having it blow away, to growing gardens, eating cookies, ridding their lives of dragons and realizing that dreams aren¿t real. If all friends had relationships like Frog and Toad, the world would be a crazy, but happy place!

Of all the books that I remember reading as a child, Frog and Toad always come to mind. At the age of 33, I'm a first time mother and I look forward to sharing this book with my daughter. I hope that she will love reading this book as much as I did when I began to read.

Genre: Fantasy Age Appropriateness: Intermediate Review: This book is a good example of fantasy because the story is believable but would not happen in reality because the frog and toad are personified. Frog and Toad are always together in the story. There are five chapters about flowers, cookies, bravery, dreams and most of all, friendship. Fantasy does not deceive, but tells the truth that children cannot understand unless in an imaginary story. By using your imagination, you are able to connect and relate to Frog and Toad's story. Media: This book is a good example of ink and wash because the characters and scenery are outlined with ink and filled with watercolor. The pictures allow readers to connect to the writing on a deeper level.

Genre: Modern Fantasy Age Appropriateness: primaryMedia: pencil and watercolor This book is a good example of fantasy because the animals take on human characteristics. The environment that they live in is realistic to some degree but we see Frog and Toad talking, riding a bike, eating cookies and reading. This book contains chapters that are each a mini story within themselves making this a great early chapter book for those students just starting to move up.

This small collection of stories both teaches and entertains. Frog and Toad are sweet as friends and they continuously learn from llfe experience and each other.

This easy reader is one of many in the frog and toad series. This book seems to teach kids about friendship at every turn. I loved the adventure they go on together. Frog and Toad have at many times the same logic as age level its written for which I think helps the young reader relate better. One example of this is when they are trying to have willpower and not eat the cookies but in the end they fed the cookies to the birds and then decided to bake a cake.

Media: Colored Pencil Genre: FantasyReview: This early chapter book is a very good example of fantasy because the characters in the book are animals but their actions are made to be believable. Throughout this book Frog and Toad set out on a series of adventures that animals cannot actually do, such as making cookies and planting gardens. This book is a Newbery honor book.

This book has 5 chapters but each chapter is a different story. This is a very cute book that goes through the life and friendship of Frog and Toad. The chapters are short and this is a good book for beginners to read. They also have lessons to be learned as Frog and Toad's friendship grows. I remember reading Frog and Toad books when I was younger. I personally loved ¿A List¿ and ¿Cookies¿ from this book. They are very innocent and cute stories. I feel like I can relate to Toad more because he¿s so silly and he thinks of the craziest things. In the classroom, I would read ¿A List¿ and have the students make up their own list of things to do for the day. They would make one for the school day and one for the weekend. Then, on Monday we would talk about their lists and if they completed all the tasks. Also, I would read ¿Cookies¿ and talk to the students about will power and let them share their experiences when they expressed will power.

Reason for Reading: Ds read aloud to me as his reader.Another fine collection of short stories about friends Frog and Toad. Frog is the wiser one with Toad being the one with more silly ideas. As usual we have five stories which are not related to each other. In the first Toad decides to write a list of everything he will do that day and he does not deviate from it until he looses the list, which creates quite the problem. Next Frog gives Toad some seeds to plant his own garden and Toad is very impatient for them to grow. He talks to them, yells at them, sings to them, reads them stories, plays music etc. all to no avail. The third story has Frog and Toad with a freshly baked bowlful of cookies which they can't stop eating and they try to come up with a way to make the cookies inaccessible so they can no longer eat anymore and make themselves sick. The fourth story has Frog and Toad wanting to be brave like the heroes in fairy tales so they take a walk up a dangerous mountain and encounter various dangers along the way running quickly back home and feeling quite brave. Finally Toad has a dream where he can do all sorts of performing arts in a theatre where Frog is watching him. But after each act Frog gets smaller and smaller, until Toad looses his friend altogether. Wonderful stories for all ages, but I think "Frog and Toad All Year" is my favourite so far.

I adore Frog and Toad. Perfect books for early readers. The humor is greatly appealing to young children and the chapters are short and managable. Delightful!

Five wonderful Frog and Toad stories- making a list, growing a garden, baking cookies (and not eating them), pretending to be brave, and having a dream.
