Reviews - What do customers think about Frog and Toad Together (I Can Read Book 2)?

Frog and Toad are still great together  Nov 30, 2009
This 1972 book is still a delight to read to your child and have your child read to you. Frog and Toad are together in five featured stories including A List, The Garden, Cookies, Dragons and Giants, and The Dream.

The stories are simple, but even in this world of computer games, Pixar and pop-up books, they catch a child's attention. A List features Toad doing his first To Do list. It is a nice way to talk to a child about being organized, but being flexible if things go wrong (Toad's list blew away, but he couldn't run after it because chasing his list wasn't on his list). The Garden is good about illustrating patience while watching seeds grow. Cookies is a funny story about will power. Dragons and Giants illustrates friendship and bravery. And the last story, The Dream is another story about friendship.

Whether you use the stories as springboards for teaching tools or just to enjoy, they are wonderfully and simply illustrated and the story flows gently.
Frog and Toad Together-A Must Have!  Nov 27, 2009
Classic book to have in your child's library!
Great short stories that have wit and humor for all ages to enjoy!
I loved all Frog and Toad stories growing up and now my sons seem to love them just as much!
A Must Have and it won't be a regret!
Love Frog and Toad  Nov 7, 2009
The Frog and Toad series teaches kids simple lessons with easy stories and cute graphics. I, myself, like to read them out loud to the children. It teaches values and consequences of how yo interact with others, but does so in an entertaining way.
great memories  Aug 10, 2009
I had been looking for this Frog and Toad book for at least a year after getting some of the newer ones for my kids. I was so excited to find this original one from the 70's. The pictures brought back so many memories of reading with my mom. As always, Frog and Toad are funny and sarcastic, making for great classic stories.
Frog & Toad: The Original Odd Couple  Aug 1, 2009
There's something refreshing about a children's book that doesn't seem desperate for your attention: no bright colors, no flaps to flip, no embossed glitter, not even a rhyme, for pete's sake. Yes, Arnold Lobel's Frog and Toad books are a different creature altogether -- awash in the Grumpy Old Man color palette, from Cigar to Pool Table -- and filled with odd little stories that cannot be read aloud without summoning the spirit of Walter Matthau.

So why have these unlikely characters have become regulars in my son's bedtime reading rotation? Maybe it's the grown-up, wise quality of the stories: though written simply, and always possessing great morality and sweetness, there is a worldly little undercurrent, like a secret joke that young readers can't quite figure out, but want to understand. This opaque quality is like catnip to a toddler: the mystery of adulthood right there on the page, so tantalizingly close, but still, so confounding!

Frog is the upbeat one; Toad the darker, pondering one. While other reviewers have attempted to link them to everything from Buddhism to Catholicism -- I'll stick with the Odd Couple reference, if I may.

These two are not friends DESPITE their differences, but BECAUSE of them (a nice lesson for kids to absorb, though it's never presented as a Lesson, of course) spending every waking minute together, exploring the woods and discussing the meaning of life (and cookies). Behind the scenes, you just KNOW they smoke pipes, drink Darjeeling, wear tweed and watch plenty of PBS (especially the British Comedies).

You'll find yourself taken aback at the level of sophistication Lobel manages to convey while never actually going over the child's head: "The List," for example, hilariously mocks our grown-up obsession with Getting Things Done, while "Cookies" discusses the pitfalls and difficulties of relying on willpower, something both you and your child will be able to nod in agreement with. "Dragons and Giants" addresses real fears in a reassuring and funny way, as the pair runs for their lives from predators while insisting they are "very brave!" "The Dream" is the most philosophical of all -- Toad dreams he is a singing, dancing superstar while his friend, Frog, shrinks down to nothingness.

Five stories in total are presented here, something I would normally shy away from (what with my 2-year old audience) but Lobel manages to make it work. Even more astounding, this book can hold said 2-year old's interest while coming from the old school of "more text than pictures." Maybe there is just so much to ponder in these comforting pages that a slow, relaxed read is just the ticket.
