About This Book
What can be more wonderful than spending time with a friend? Frog and Toad do almost everything together. When Toad worries about cleaning his house, Frog is there to support him. When Frog wants to fly a kite, Toad is there to help him. The two sit and shiver at Frog's scary ghost story, which may or may not be true, and when the hat Frog gives Toad for his birthday is too big, Frog thinks of a way to make it fit.
Then one day, Frog wants to spend time alone, and Toad is afraid that he has lost his friend forever. But Frog's explanation, as Toad soon sees, is "a very good reason for wanting to be alone," and the two finish out the day alone — together.
These beloved best friends are the stars of three other adventures by Caldecott Medalist Arnold Lobel, including the Caldecott Honor Book Frog and Toad Are Friends and the Newbery Honor Book Frog and Toad Together. Filled with warmth and humor, and illustrated in appealing tones of green and brown, these best-selling stories are a magical invitation to children to start reading on their own.
