    Frog and Toad is a chapter book in which two best friends named, frog and toad, go on adventures together. Each chapter is a different story with the first chapter being about toad not wanting to awaken from hibernation and frog tricking him, the second is about Toad trying to think of a story to tell Frog, the third is about Toad losing a button on his jacket and Frog helping him find it but eventually finding out he had the button the whole time so he sows Frog a jacket with many buttons, the fourth chapter is about toad wearing a bathing suit when they go swimming and not wanting anyone to see it but everyone waits around the water till he gets out, and the final chapter is about Toad never getting mail so Frog writes him a letter to make his friend happy. This is a good fantasy chapter book because the story is split up into chapters and Frog and Toad are personified and live in houses and wear clothes. I would read the stories individually to primary students and as a chapter book for intermediate. illustrations: watercolor

    A great beginning read for children, although there are not too many pictures I still enjoyed the book. I think this would be great for bedtime and could be used to teach or emphasize the importance of friends.

    I liked this book for many reasons. One thing I really liked about this book were the illustrations. The illustrator was able to create very appealing illustrations only using the colors brown and green. This color scheme adds to the theme of the overall story, as it is about a green frog and a brown toad. I also thought the illustrations were extremely sweet and did a great job of telling the story of Frog and Toad's friendship. For example, you can see Toad's concern in the illustration of him bringing Frog a hot cup of tea in bed when he is sick. I also liked the plot in this story. It includes a lot of humor which made the story very fun to read. For example, I found it silly when Toad thought that standing on his head would help him think of a story to tell Frog. The illustration of Toad standing on his head added to this humor by showing his awkward body and bulging eyes as he waits in a headstand. I also liked that the plot included some conflict that needed to be resolved. I thought that this kept the story engaging and made the reader want to continue to see what would happen. For example, at one point in the story Toad cannot find his button and Frog helps him look everywhere to find it. I believe that the overall message of this story is that good things will come to you if you do good for others. This is shown through Frog and Toads selfless actions throughout the book, such as when Toad finds his button on his floor at home and gives his jacket to Frog for helping him search for the button when he had it all along.

    This is a really good book on friendship and teamwork that would be good in younger level classrooms. It's hits topics such as embarrassment, being patient, and of course, being a good and supportive friend. I think it would be a fun read loud because it's a few stories within one book, so the students would be excited to hear about Frog and Toad's escapades each day.

    Arnold Lobel's four Frog and Toad books - Frog and Toad Are Friends, Frog and Toad Together, Frog and Toad All Year and Days with Frog and Toad - were some of my absolute favorites as a girl, and I read them again and again, never tiring of those two amphibian friends, and their various activities and adventures. This first entry in the series, originally published in 1970, and chosen as a Caldecott Honor Book in 1971, contains five brief stories (as do all the Frog and Toad titles), and introduces us to the somewhat irascible Toad, impatient and sometimes rather gloomy, and the more optimistic Frog, calm and very kindhearted.Here, in Spring, we see Frog, attempting to waken his resistant friend at the end of a long winter's hibernation, and resorting to an amusing subterfuge. It's Frog who is in bed in The Story, as a concerned Toad, worried for his friend's health, tries to come up with a tale to keep him entertained. A Lost Button details the friends' search for Toad's missing jacket-button, while A Swim follows them as they take a dip - with humorous results, when Toad is reluctant to allow others to see his swimming suit - in the stream. Finally, The Letter sees Frog attempting to ameliorate Toad's depression, at his lack of correspondence. Warmhearted without being sentimental, humorous without being hilarious, these simple stories have a gentle quality that is reassuring for young readers, while the adorable illustrations - greens and browns predominating - are both engaging and soothing. Of course, any devotee of these characters has to ask herself, at some point, whether she is more of a Frog or a Toad. I suspect that, although I'd like to be more of a Frog, I'm frequently a bit of a Toad. What can I say? I've been known to lose my temper, when my belongings go missing; to struggle to leave my comfortable bed, on particularly weary mornings; and to refuse (point-blank) to be seen in certain apparel. Yep, I'm definitely more of a Toad. Still, a woman can always try to be more frog-like, can't she...?

    Frog and Toad are just the best! They make me smile.

    I simply adore the supremely cute illustrations. They are sweet and evocative, and in my opinion, they tell the story of frog and toad's friendship in a way that the rather simplistic narrative just does not and cannot. I know that Frog and Toad Are Friends is a classic of American children's literature and that for many, the book likely holds very fond and nostalgic childhood memories. However, I found the text rather dragging when I read this book as a child, and I was still finding the narrative somewhat long-winded, and even a trifle monotonous when I recently reread Frog and Toad Are Friends for a group discussion in the Children's Literature Group's Picture Book Club. I think that while the text does manage to successfully show the deep friendship between frog and toad, the accompanying illustrations are actually much more evocative of that friendship and certainly much more fun and entertaining (I was actually getting a bit annoyed at the many repetitions and at times just wanted the stories to be over and done). I would still recommend Frog and Toad Are Friends as both a read-aloud and for independent first reading activities, but I honestly cannot see all that much in the narrative that is magical or exciting (in fact, I think for me, this book would have worked and would work better as a wordless picture book).I do have one small confession to make. The very first time I read Frog and Toad Are Friends was in 1976. I was ten years old, and we had just immigrated to Canada from Germany. The book was given to me as an in-class reading assignment, and I felt annoyed and embarrassed that I, a grade four student, who had been reading rather lengthy German children's books for more than two years (since grade two), was suddenly in a position of having to read books originally conceived for much younger children (due to my lack of English language skills). I have always wondered if that feeling of childhood embarrassment might have contributed to my rather lukewarm reaction to Frog and Toad Are Friends. However, even now, as an adult, I simply cannot get myself to really, truly enjoy the text (of course, I now no longer feel that sense of embarrassment and I truly am able to appreciate the wonderful illustrations, but the narrative continues to feel somewhat lackluster to me).

    The best thing about the 'Frog and Toad' books, and all of Arnold Lobel's children's books, is that the reading level is appropriate for young readers AND the stories are funny and entertaining. Frog and Toad have cute personalities- which is rare for characters in stories as easy to decode as these. They model friendship- fighting and making up, finding ways to surprise each other, occasionally tricking one another. These books are a staple in my classroom library and will be in my children's personal library some day, too.

    This is an early chapter book for the primary grades. This book is in the fantasy genre. In this ink and wash book, Frog and Toad are on a different adventure for each chapter. The two friends are constantly doing some mindless task such as looking all over the forest for a lost button, which they soon find is at home. No matter what happens in each story, Frog and Toad are best of friends and put their minds together in everything they do. This book could be used in lessons about friendships.This book could be used for independent reading or small reading groups.This book characterizes both Frog and Toad as small, simple creatures with simple minds. The illustrations reinforce this as they are done with very little color, and the clothing they wear and things they do reinforce the words on the page.This is a good example of fantasy because two amphibians can talk and are best of friends. There are also lots of other animals who speak in the stories, and all are personified.

    I love this book. I love the pictures and the writing that goes with the pictures. I would trul recomend this book to anyone that loves short stories. I will also use this book in my classroom to help students learn how to read.

    Reason for Reading: Son read aloud to me as his reader.The first book in the Frog and Toad series and a Caldecott honor winner this book introduces us to the now classic characters with the familiar format of five short stories of their friendship. Of two different natures, they bring out the best in each other and enjoy life and nature to the fullest. The simple stories will delight young and old alike. My son, now on the old side for these books, but just at the perfect reading level for him, still enjoys the simple, honest humour found within the pages. He enjoyed this book and wants to read the last one we still have left in the series to read. A perennial favourite and a keeper for my shelves!

    Frog and toad books are great for the second grade levels. The way that the frog and toad are friends and always there for each other. Children learn to trust and have fun with others when they can. Throughout this book they were always there for each other when they were either mad or angry. Teachers could really use this with second graders.

    Cute and funny- a classic.

    This is the story of friendship.The book has 5 differnt stories about their escapades. Frog and Toad help each other during illness.They accept each other (Frog is optimistic and Toad is sometimes a grump; however they respect one another. They have fun together and enjoys each others company. When Toad loses a button after retracting their steps to no avail, Toad finds it in his home.All the buttons collected while retracing their steps through the meadow,woods,and river,he sewed them onto his jacket and gave the jacket to his friend Frog;who was very happy to have it. Frog tried to cheer his friend who never recieved mail,so he writes to Toad but gives it to snail. It takes 4 days to reach Toad. Frog and Toad waited together patiently until it arrives and Toad is happy. The illustrations ink and the colors are in hues of green and brown.Personal Reaction:I enjoyed the book. Friendship requires knowing,loving and supporting each other, no matter our faults.Classroom Extension Ideas: 1. After reading the story, children could be asked to describe their friends.2.In the story of the "Lost Button" it could be used as a concept for teaching opposites.

    Truly a classic children's book. A Caldecott winner for good reason and the lessons in these simple stories are wonderful.

    A Frog and Toad book with five short stories. "Spring," "The Story," "A Lost Button," "A Swim," and "The Letter." A good start for any beginning reader as there is large print and a small picture on each page. Simple pictures, and good short stories that are all about their friendship and how they always want to be around each other.

    Frog and Toad Are Friends is a classic that remains so because of its unique ability to portray friendship that children can relate too! Each story in the book relays the small but meaningful emotional difficulties and victories that friends go through together.

    I'm in the minority I guess with this book. I didn't find it all that engaging or fun, nor was I blown away by the illustrations. But it is a chapter book for young readers and may be a good start for them. Two characters - Toad and Frog - and what they do together. Each story has a lesson.

    The classic and beloved Frog and Toad book! This book is a good book for early readers as well as to read aloud to early elementary students. The characters are likeable and we can relate to them.

    Frog and Toad Are Friends is a chapter book for young readers. The illustrations offer clues for young readers that will help keep them engaged. Each chapter offers a new story for the reader, and includes the elements of a story such as plot, setting, characters, etc. Frog and Toad are two friends with an unusual friendship. Though they have similarities their differences are very much highlighted in these stories.

    This story is in a chapter book about Frog and Toad and the many adventures they go on together. This story, Spring in particular is about Frog wanting to get Toad to stop sleeping and play with him now that it is spring time!Toad is not interested and wants to go back to sleep so frog finds a way to trick his friend so that he will wake up and want to go outside to enjoy the spring weather.

    Love that it has chapters - kids that age get really excited when they can read a chapter. Toad is the dumb one, I always forget. And I really enjoy the illustrations (take that Nicolajeva) although they are very 70s.But an interesting juxtaposition - Frog and Toad are very anthropomorphized, but the rest of their world is realistic even the other creatures,The swimming story is interesting (Toad doesn't want anyone to see him in his bathing suit and when he eventually comes out of the water, Frog laughs at him - no sorry resolution).

    This series is a great way to get children to start thinking about the dynamics of friendship. They illustrate the ways that friends help each other out as well as the ways that friends can upset one another.Frog and Toad Are Friends invites beginning readers to celebrate friendship in these happy stories. An important thing about this book is that students can read them by themselves.

    This book follows Frog & Toad on their adventures throughout their days together. It consists of five funny short stories with wonderful illustrations. Out of all of the stories, my favorite was "A Swim".

    Frog and Toad Are Friends is a good book that tells a stroy to children about a friendship. I think children like this book so much because it is a chapter book which makes the children feel like they are accomplishing a lot when reading this book. The author also gives children a good example of friendship.

    My favourite book of my childhood - it always makes me think of my brother and I.I don't think there is anything homo-erotic about this. It just gives an entertaining read upon a Utopian and Dystopian friendship if at all. If I were to do a similar work as my first book, I would be quite stoked about it to be honest. Frog and Toad rules !!!

    Frog and Toad are indeed, friends. This book shows a comfortable friendship and the things friends do for one another. The text is large and easy to read, and the words are simple, but the story is so full of elegant wit. I would recommend this so much more over so many of the more contemporary early reader books which have so little substance. Granted, some children may find the book a little old-fashioned, but I think if they give it a chance they will quickly get engaged and find themselves laughing out loud.

    This is a great book for you to have in your classroom. I would have it in a 2nd grade. It is very easy to read but it has five different stories and adventures that frog and toad go through.

    This is a great book for children to show them the true meaning of friendship. Frog and Toad are Friends has five short stories that show how these two friends get along - and what they do for each other.
