My children LOVE Frog & Toad books. They are at the perfect ages (4 &6) to really enjoy stories read to them. To be honest I was begining to worry b/c they have never been big on sitting & listening to me read books…..until now. I read 3 books every school day to them plus their Bible reading & they are starting to eat it up! Anyways, Frog & Toad books are their favorite & I encourage you to check them out if you have never read them. They were first published in the 70’s I think so they’ve been around for a while.
Here is a description of them from Wikipedia:
“Frog & 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, simply named Frog and 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 pondering the ethics of being “Alone”.”
