“Frog and Toad Are Friends” is a Caldecott Honor Book from Arnold Lobel about two amphibian pals, Frog and Toad who go through life together. “Frog and Toad Are Friends” is definitely a brilliant introduction to the “Frog and Toad” series that children will love!

Arnold Lobel’s book about true friendship has truly deserved the honorable Caldecott Honor award. Arnold Lobel makes this story truly delightful as he pairs up Frog, a free-spirited character with Toad, a somewhat grumpy yet caring character, with each other and makes them the most memorable odd-couple duo in children’s book history. Arnold Lobel teaches children about the power of true friendship as Frog and Toad, though they have different personalities, would go through everything life together and still remain to be the best of friends, which will encourage many children to stay true to their friends no matter what obstacles come their way. Arnold Lobel’s illustrations are truly beautiful and simple as Frog is drawn to be taller than Toad and is green and wears a jacket and a pair of pants while Toad is shorter than Frog and is brown and also wears a jacket and a pair of pants. The images that stood out the most in this book are the images of Frog and Toad’s expressions as Frog always has a happy expression on his face while Toad always has a grumpy expression on his face.

“Frog and Toad Are Friends” is a brilliant and cute book about true friendship that many children will cherished for many years. I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is no inappropriate content for small children.
