Frog and Toad: A Little Book of Big Thoughts

We rated this book:


I used to read Arnold Lobell’s stories a lot when I was really little. At home, we probably have almost every book he wrote! So I was excited to see what Frog and Toad: A Little Book of Big Thoughts was about.

First of all, I’m not sure it’s really for kids. It isn’t a story. It’s illustrations from different Frog and Toad stories with a quote on one side. On the other page somebody has added comments like “Friends tell you the truth,” or “Friends are there for you.” One page says, “Friends can be sweet,” and the picture shows Frog and Toad sitting in chairs and drinking tea. The quote reads, “Frog made a fresh pot of tea.”

The original stories are so much better. This book just made me want to read our old books again. Maybe this is the kind of book a grown-up person, who used to like Frog and Toad, would give to a friend. It shows you scenes from all the Frog and Toad books.
