The second of Arnold Lobe
The second of Arnold Lobel's four Frog and Toad story collections for beginning readers - the first being the Caldecott Honor Book Frog and Toad Are Friends, and the third and fourth being Frog and Toad All Year and Days with Frog and Toad - this delightful little volume, together with its three companions, was one of my reading staples, as a young girl. Like all the Frog and Toad books, it contains five brief tales, each of which highlights some important characteristic of one or both of its amphibian heroes, and each of which benefits from Lobel's uniquely understated sense of humor, compassionate eye for the (very human) foibles of his subjects, and appealing artwork. In A List, we see the dangers of becoming too inflexible about our plans and routines, when Toad makes a list of things to do one day, and then, finding himself deprived of that list by the wind, refuses to do anything at all! The Garden follows Toad as, determined to have a beautiful garden like Frog, he impatiently waits for his seeds to grow, trying everything he can, from playing his violin to haranguing them, to hurry their germination along. Cookies offers a hilarious examination of will power and indulgence, as Frog and Toad discuss the necessity of putting away the cookies they are enjoying, all while they continue to eat. The 'successful' solution supplied by Frog ends up a temporary measure, at best! Inspired by the fairy-tales they have been reading, Frog and Toad set out to explore in Dragons and Giants, encountering a number of terrifying dangers - everything from snakes to avalanches - and insisting (even as they flee and hide) that they are not afraid. Finally, Toad's fantasies of being the best (and of showing up his friend) lead to unexpected - but thankfully unreal - results in The Dream. As always, when rereading one of these classics of beginning-reader literature, I am struck by the immense authorial skill it takes to accomplish so much - to communicate such subtle nuances of emotion; to explore, both humorously and compassionately, the vagaries of personality, and of human (I mean amphibian!) friendship - with such a limited vocabulary. It's simply astonishing! Unlike the earlier Frog and Toad book, which won a Caldecott Honor for its artwork, Frog and Toad Together was awarded a Newbery Honor for its text - one of the few early readers that can boast that distinction - and it not difficult to see why! Of course, the artwork is also immensely appealing (as is always the case with Lobel), making this an ideal title for young children just getting going with independent reading. Highly recommended, to all young frog and toads (I was, and still am more of a Toad than a Frog) looking for good books!

Primary Genre: Fantasy-
Primary Genre: Fantasy- Frog and Toad do things that humans do even though they are a frog and toad. In fantasy, animals talk and do things that are not realistic to their real behaviors. That is why this book is a fantasy. Setting: This is a backdrop setting because Frog and Toad could be anywhere. They never say where they are at or where their home is.

Frog and Toad stand up to

Frog and Toad stand up to the test of time! These are great stories for early readers, but fun for the adult who is assisting the young reader. Frog and Toad share many adventures and many of them are very silly, but through it all they remain fast friends.

Frog and Toad Together is

Frog and Toad Together is a short chapter book that is about a close friendship between two friends that are always together. The book has 5 chapters in it and they each tell different stories about their lives. All of the stories are extremely different, but some of my favorite is The Garden and Cookies. In The Garden, Frog give Toad some seeds to start his very own garden, with the warning that having a garden was a lot of work. Toad took on the challenge and did everything that he could to have his seeds grow. Once his seeds blossomed, he realized how much hard work really pays off in the end. Cookies is a chapter on the practice of will power. Toad made cookies to share with Frog, they were the best cookies ever, but they didn't want to eat all of them so they came up with different ideas to not eat the cookies. This book would be a great book to read during different parts of the year. I would read The Garden towards the end of the year to keep my students motivated to work hard. This would also be a great take-home book for students to read with their guardians. Genre: fantasy.

Summary: This is a story

Summary: This is a story about when toad made alist of things to do for him and frog. As the day went on everything that toad did he would cross off his list, for example get up, get dressed. On their day out the wind ended up blowing the list away. So they sat down and toad tried to think of what was on the list. Since he couldnt remember what was on his list he did not want to do anything because it wasnt on his list. So they say down by a rock and went to sleep because toad rememberd going to sleep was the last thing on his list. Personal Experience: As a child I remember my grandma reading this story to me several of times. I also remember reading this book in the school library. Classroom Extensions: 1. After reading the story I would have the students make a list of things that they normally do in the day. 2. I would ask the students of other ways that toad and frog could have worked out the problem of losing the list.

Summary: This Newberry Aw

Summary: This Newberry Award wnning book takes the reader through different problems and solutions. Through each step frog and toad remain together. Personal Reaction: This is a witty story with great illustraions. I mostly enjoyed the simpleness of the story to lure young kids into paying attention for an enjoyable ending. Classroom Extension Ideas: I. Science define a frog. Put the myth to rest about kisses frogs to turn thim in to princes. II. Art. draw characteristics of a frog and hang it along the students desks that can hop the furthest.
