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.
"Five tales that are a masterpiece of child-styled humor and sensitivity."-- "School Library Journal"
