Frog and Toad All Year
by Arnold Lobel

Frog and Toad are best friends. These five brief stories follow the duo through the seasons, beginning in winter, when Frog tries to coax Toad to come outside. Toad does not want to leave his warm bed. “Blah,” Toad protests, “I do not have any winter clothes.” Frog brings him some. “Frog pushed a coat over the top of Toad. Frog pulled snowpants up over the bottom of Toad.” “Help!... My best friend is trying to kill me,” says Toad. Properly dressed for the weather, the friends head out together for a great sledding adventure. The fun continues with an ice cream cone monster in summer, and an attempt to do good deeds for each other in the fall, always with a great dose of humor. These brief tales teach your youngsters about the seasons’ rhythms and the details that make each special, but most importantly, they herald the pleasures of friendship and the celebrations to be found in shared moments of surprise and delight.
