Children's Hardcover Book, Days with Frog and Toad, Arnold Lobel, Fiction, Weekly Reader, Illustrated, Storybook, Picture Book

A wonderful children's hardcover book called Frog and Toad Are Friends by Arnold Lobel. This fictional book is beautifully illustrated. It is a 1979 Weekly reader edition.

Frog is the wiser, supportive partner easing Toad through his small frustrations and uncertainties. Frog plays the sympathetic sounding board while Toad convinces himself to clean house today and take it easy tomorrow instead of the other way round; he encourages Toad through a fourth and finally successful try at kite flying despite the robins' ridicule; he scares himself and Toad with a shivery ghost story that might or might not have happened to him; and he shrinks Toad's too-big birthday hat with water while leading his friend to believe that Toad's own big thoughts have enlarged his head. Once more, Lobel leaves the two with their friendship stronger than ever.

Arnold Stark Lobel (1933 – 1987) was an American author of children's books, including the Frog and Toad series and Mouse Soup. He both wrote and illustrated those picture books, as well as Fables, for which he won the 1981 Caldecott Medal recognizing the year's best-illustrated U.S. picture book.
