Frog and Toad All Year (Frog and Toad #3)
Friends all year.
In winter, spring, summer, and fall, Frog and Toad are always together. Here is a wise and wonderful story for each season of the year-and one for Christmas, too.
Frog and Toad are just fun.
While we are using Frog and Toad to help with our new reader in the house we have been reading our children Frog and Toad probably since they were two. Fun for any age.
This book, published in 1976, is the third of four books about Frog and Toad, written by Arnold Lobel. This book has five stories, starting and ending with Winter tales.
As usual, Toad is a bit negative and nervous, while Frog is calm, positive and dedicated to being a very good friend to Toad.
In "Down the Hill", Frog gets Toad to come outside and try sledding down a hill with him. Toad goes reluc ...more
Kid review: 5
Going through these again, and he's loved them for a couple of years now, so they have staying power - for both of us. I can see the near future where he won't be interested in these, or books like them - and I will miss reading Frog and Toad to him (and laughing).
Themes include friendship and seasons. The text is large font, the dialog is easy to read, and there's sufficient word repetition for beginning and transit ...more

I liked when the bird said to Toad, "You are all alone." Then he got mad.
I'm not sure about the current generation, but the Frog and Toad series were a classic when my sisters and my children were growing up. In this collection, Frog and Toad, the ultimate best friends, share good times and memories throughout the various seasons. They rake leaves, build snowmen, and count on each other throughout the year. They portray true, lasting friendship.
This is a begin ...more

My Review: Another classic to share with little ones, I must say all the Frog and Toad books are timeless and can be read for generations and still resonate. I love the friendship between Frog and Toad, I really do hope that Munchkin can learn to be a friend like they are. I will say though I was a little at ...more
Frog knocked at Toad's door. "Toad, wake up," he cried. "Come out and see how wonderful the winter is!" "I will not," said Toad. "I am in my warm bed." "Winter is beautiful," said Frog. "Come out and have fun." "Blah," said Toad. "I do not have any winter clothes." Frog came into the house. "I have brought you some things to wear," he said. Frog pushed a coat down over the top of Toad. Frog pulled snowpants u...more
I've always enjoyed Arnold Lobel, but as a kid these Frog and Toad books didn't appeal to me so I've only discovered there charm as an adult.
This book sees the two friends through the year with a story for each of the seasons, beginning and ending with winter. In the first story Frog forces Toad out of the house to enjoy the winter weather but Toad would rather be home warm and snug in his bed. Next, on a rainy Spring day Frog tells Toad a st ...more

Like many of the reviews, these were wonderful stories to share with young children as they build reading skills. The friendship of Frog and Toad and the growth of Toad as an individual are wonderful to witness. Not quit as good as Frog and Toad Are Friends or Frog and Toad Together.
