Children's Book of The Week - Frog and Toad Are Friends

Hello all. Welcome to my new weekly blog segment. I'm not a child, I don't have children, but I work with children. Thus, I like children's books. Every week I will be posting a review of some of my favorites.

Book Title: Frog and Toad Are Friends
Reading Level: Ages 5 to 8


The adventures of a Frog and Toad who are best friends.

My Thoughts

When I was a kid I always loved the Frog and Toad books. However, I never owned this particular one as a child so it was a new experience for me. Frog and Toad Are Friends consists of five short stories, which you can read all in one sitting or read separately. What I love most about the book is that both Frog and Toad are such great characters. The each have their own personality. As you know I love a book writing with a quirky sense of humor and this book definitely has that. It gave me the biggest giggle while was reading it. The story in which Toad attempts to think of a story to tell Frog when Frog is feeling sick was the most hilarious of all. This is a good pick to read to the young ones, and the first and second graders should be able to enjoy reading it by themselves. If you have a Nook Color I high suggest you get the enhanced version of the book. You can read it yourself or you can have it read to you. The guy that reads it does all the voices and brings the characters to life. I will have to get more Frog and Toad books from now on. I had such a good time reading this.
