Frog and Toad Together book
Please note that a brief synopsis of many of the books included here are provided in our Library Builders section. Study guides for the same book are often available from several publishers, so we found it more efficient to give a description of the book only once.
There are few duos in literature as memorable as Frog and Toad. Frog is more adventurous, and Toad likes to be safe at home. (My favorite quote from Toad is "Winter may be beautiful, but bed is much better.") Each of these delightful books shares some of the adventures that these two friends enjoy together, in short story format. Great for read-alouds or just reading alone!
Please see our Reading section for leveled reading series such as I Can Read, Step Into Reading, and many more.
Frog and Toad are best friends who are always together. They plant gardens together, share cookies together, set out on a brave journey together, and even do nothing together when Toad loses his list of "things to do." These five simple stories about friendship by Arnold Lobel have become a classic children's book, which is also available in a set that includes an audio CD. The CD reads the unabridged book and includes two tracks - one that includes turn-the-page signals and one of uninterrupted reading.
