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!
"The give-and-take of a fast friendship between Frog and Toad is gently affectionate." -- "C." "[The stories] have freshness, humor, and a beguiling childlike simplicity." -- "H."
