Als kind had ik een boekje met een aantal verhalen van Kikker en pad. Dit boekje heb ik heel vaak gelezen. Ook heb ik later een televisieserie van deze verhalen gevolgd. Ik was dus al bekend met dit boek, maar voor de Boekenbingo heb ik de verhalen nog eens overgelezen en gedeeltelijk voorgelezen aan onze dochter.
Ik blijf onder de indruk van de prachtige sfeervolle tekeningen. Heerlijk om die weer eens te zien.
De verhalen zijn simpel van opbouw, maar tijdloos en dus herkenbaar. De verhalen zijn

I used these books when I was a volunteer literacy coach and when my oldest was learning to read. I always enjoyed these books and thought they were great beginning readers -- but actually reading them aloud to my 4 year old without being concerned about sounding out the words and just fluidly reading the stories aloud - I have appreciated them in a whole new way. These stories and illustrations are just about as good as it gets!

A gift from a former pastor to our children. The gift of classics and good reading. Yes. Not only cherished by the younger ones but fun to read for our 6 year old.

In de vrije natuur gaan kikkers en padden niet samen, maar in Arnold Lobels verhalen kunnen ze niet zonder elkaar.

Alle verhalen draaien om vriendschap: of Kikker en Pad nou gaan vliegeren, gaan uitzoeken of ze dapper zijn, of alleen op een klein eilandje zitten, steeds is duidelijk dat ze heel verschillend zijn, maar elkaar toch nodig hebben.

Vroeger zelf gelezen en nu al heel wat verhalen van Kikker en Pad voorgelezen aan mijn zoons; ze kunnen er geen genoeg van krijgen.

From Sam (5 years old): I liked all of the three books. I liked all of the stories, but my favorite one was about the snow. Toad wanted to be in his warm bed. He doesn't want to be cold. Frog wants him to leave home and play in the snow. Toad said Frog was right. It is fun in the snow. Toad didn't notice but he was all alone, and he bonked into a tree and a rock. The sled dived into the snow. Toad went home because bed is better than snow. The next one is The Corner, but that's not my favorite. ...more

Mary's review: What did you like about the book, Mary? I like when the birds came to eat the cookies. What else did you like? I liked it...I'm sorry, I messed up. I also liked it when Frog snuck the hat and shrunk it in The Hat. Anything else you liked about it? Like, more generally? I like that the words are easy to read. I also liked the pictures. Do you think your dad is awesome? DAAAAD! (Mary is 6 years old)

Frog and Toad are the main characters in a series of easy-reader children's books, written and illustrated by Arnold Lobel. Each book contains five simple, often humorous, sometimes poignant, short stories chronicling the exploits of a frog and his friend, a toad. Some of their adventures include: attempting to fly a kite, cleaning Toad's messy house as opposed to waiting until "Tomorrow" to do so, and figuring out the ethics of being "Alone". Frog is taller, with a green shade, and is more frie ...more

This is an I Can Read book that can be read in all the elementary classes. The pictures are colorful and the words are easy to sound out. Each adventure has a learning experience. Spring is learning about the seasons and months and what can be done in that season verses a cold season. The story adventure has many sight words in it and it shows what a story looks like and how it has a beginning middle,and end.The lost button was a lesson on different characters in the story helping to find the bu ...more

Wat een geweldige vrienden zijn Kikker en Pad en wat beleven ze veel in deze mooie verhalen. Misschien gek, maar sommige verhalen hebben ook wel wat herkenbaars. Zo ben ik bijvoorbeeld ook goed in lijstjes maken waarvan ik zeker weet dat ik dingen kan door strepen en ben ik dol op mijn bed in de winter.
Ik zou zo nog een boek kunnen lezen over deze twee vrienden.

This was my favorite book when I was little! My teacher gave it to me in kindergarten because I already knew how to read and was bored with the tiny books for my age. She gave me this book and another one about spiders and told me to finish them over the weekend. I read the spider one as fast as I could because I was terrified of the pictures. Then I moved onto this book. I loved it so much! But I do not remember very much of it. All I know is that this is a great book for kids who have just lea ...more

Lobel's Frog and Toad tales are children's classics, but far more. His illustrations are lovely and inviting, but the writing is what remains with you. His stories highlight the small details that make up life, with every instance recognizable, each word perfectly placed but never seeming manufactured. His humor can leave you hiccuping and unstrung in half a sentence.
This is writing as close to perfection as it gets – nothing need be added or subtracted. Lobel makes Hemingway seem verbose; perha

1973 Newbery Honor Book (For Frog and Toad Together )

Three of the four Frog and Toad books in one volume. Frog is the eternal optimist and Toad the pessimist. They are really quite entertaining even for an adult.

Frog and Toad are Friends

"Spring"--Frog tries to wake Toad up because spring has come.
"The Story"--Frog is sick in bed so Toad tries to tell him a story.
"A Lost Button"--Toad loses one of the buttons on his jacket and Frog helps him find it.
"A Swim"--Frog and Toad go swimming but Toad do

Hoewel deze verhalen eigenlijk voor kleuters bedoeld zijn, vond mijn dochter er toen niet ze heel veel aan. Nu is ze 8, en ze vindt de verhalen geweldig! Omdat er altijd een interessant idee achter de verhalen zit, of iets om over te kunnen praten is ze er nu echt rijp voor. Ik zou iedereen dan ook aanraden deze verhalen niet als te kinderachtig te bestempelen. Vanaf het moment dat je kind een zeker abstractieniveau aankan, blijft dit boek je hele leven lang leuk en waardevol!

On the advice of a teacher we bought this set for our son when he was learning to read (but resisting reading). It's difficult to get boys to read, especially when they are starting out and therefore not very confident, but we found these books a treat. They push all the right buttons: the stories are self-contained and of a reasonable length; there is a simple but not patronizing vocabulary; there is repetition but it is not intrusive nor is it really obvious; and the two friends (Frog, who is ...more

This is an incredibly sweet children's book about friendship. It is also not at all as trite as the preceding sentence might imply.

Moreover, time spent reading a review of it would be better spent just reading a chapter from it.

my favorite quote: "'That kite will not fly,' said the robins. 'You may as well give up.' Toad ran back to Frog. 'Frog,' said Toad, 'this kite will not fly. I give up.'"

This book consists of 5 mini-stories, the version of this that I read I got from my parents house that I use to read many times as a child. I loved these stories, I still have the sticker on it that says that it cost a dollar. This shows that we got our money worth because it was read a lot throughout my childhood and has many ripped pages to prove this fact. I think that many children can love this book, with the language that the author uses, children can relate to it and love it. It will also ...more

This is a series of books that fantasy/science fiction. These are intended for grades 1-5. I really enjoyed all the frog and toad books when i was growing up. Re reading them I really appreciated the message and and illustrations. I think children will really enjoy one or all these books.

My daughter received this three-in-one book from a friend for her birthday, and we loved reading every chapter, especially since I remember these book vividly from my own childhood thirty years ago! With the exception of the chapter where everyone laughs at Toad's silly swimsuit (which is still amusing), each chapter provides a great lesson to discuss with children. I read a chapter every night to my five-year-old daughter and four-year-old son, and we always ended each reading with a discussion ...more

I enjoy these stories as reminders of the simplicity to be found in spending outdoorsy time with a friend. Also, I can relate to the characters. For example, one of them decides to plant seeds in his garden and is much impatient over the lengthy amount of time required to see them sprout! This is why I often buy "live/dead" flowers for my vases around the house. I am more easily gratified by the instant color and vivacity when I buy the "3 for $12" bunches at the grocery store than if I spent $1 ...more

I learned to read with these lovely books! They have much more personality than a lot of early readers have, and timeless stories that will never feel dated. They may have also began my love for bro-mance stories!

This one is right up there with George and Martha (a pair of hippos) as far as great animal friendship books that teach a gentle moral lesson. Of course Wind in the Willows is right up there too.

Recommends it for: Everyone
Structured less as a linear story than as a series of set pieces, "Frog and Toad" follows the seasonal routine of its titular amphibians, who are, as we well know, friends. Frog (Jay Goede) is the abler of the two; dressed immaculately in a silken waistcoat, he cuts the figure of a jovial English gentleman. His companion Toad (Mark Linn-Baker), meanwhile, is a bit of a goldbricker, a frumpy nebbish who would rather not be rousted from hibernation. Linn-Baker has the weaker singing voice of the t ...more

My Opinion:

Five tales about Frog and Toad. Me and my daughter read through these stories then I let her read them by herself. My daughter is not a good reader and this book helped by having repetitive words for her. She could look at the words and know what they are. This is a great help with reading this years library list from her school. Since she is a bit behind on her reading this was the right level for her. If you are looking for something that has some repetitive words for your child to
