However, I have always found Arnold Lobel's presented I simply adore the supremely and sweetly cute and delightful accompanying illustrations. Therefore, and personally, I think that while the narrative does manage to more than adequately show the deep friendship between frog and toad, the accompanying illustrations are actually so much more evocative and expressive of that comradeship and certainly considerably more fun and engaging I was actually getting more than a bit annoyed at the many textual repetitions and at times really just arnold lobel ebook collection the stories to be over and done with.


That being said, I would still and strongly recommend Frog and Toad Are Arnold lobel ebook collection as both a read-aloud and for independent first reading activities, but I honestly and very much personally cannot see all that much in the narrative that is magical or all that exciting and in fact, I think for me, Frog and Toad Are Friends would actually work much better as a wordless picture book.

I do have one small but likely revealing and important confession to make.

Frog and Toad Are Friends

I was ten years old, and we had just immigrated to Canada from Germany. However, Frog feels better and allows Toad to get in bed so he can tell him a arnold lobel ebook collection.

Frog tells a story detailing what Toad has been doing arnold lobel ebook collection him throughout the chapter, but the time Frog finishes, Toad is already fast asleep.

Retracing their steps, the friends return to the meadow, the woods, and the stream where they had walked. Frog, a sparrow, and a raccoon each find buttons, but none of them are Toad's missing button his was a big round thick white button with four holes. Eventually, Toad gets so angry over not finding his button that he runs home, and arnold lobel ebook collection his missing button had fallen off before the walk.

To make it up to Frog for the wild goose chase, not only does Toad sew his button back on his jacket, but sews on the other buttons they found as well and gives it to Frog the next day.
