  • Frog and Toad are Friends

    by Arnold Lobel Year Published:

    Through five engaging stories, the friendship between Frog and Toad is on display as they look for lost buttons, greet spring weather, and wait for mail. Each simple plot is resolved in a few pages, usually through a clever manner: the buttons are refashioned as embellishments on Frog’s jacket, Toad finally wakes up in time to enjoy spring, and Toad receives the best pen pal he could ask for: his friend, Frog.
