Frog and Toad All Year
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.
This little book is so charming. For some reason, I couldn't stop smiling when reading this.
This is a series of short stories about the friendship of a pessimistic, anxious Toad and an optimistic, encouraging Frog. Though Toad is quite ...more
This is a bit of nostalgia. I've loved these two since I was a kid. The kind of book I've just been waiting to read to Squirt.

So apparently I always read this book in the pre-Spring season, and with my niece! Still a sweet little story of some friends who love each other, despite one of them being rather a pessimist. I need to read the other stories in this series.
I'd read the Frog and Toad books years ago and just loved them! Read this one to my niece today, and I'd forgotten what sweet stories they are! I loved the pictures and reading the simple words to her. These really are timeless stories, ...more
June 2019 - Ben knows all the stories pretty well after listening to the audio book on repeat - I think "Ice Cream" might be his favorite in this one.
I liked when the bird said to Toad, "You are all alone." Then he got mad.
