Arnold Lobel's beloved amphibian besties are celebrating their 50th anniversary! The first beginning reader title, Frog and Toad Are Friends, was published in 1970 and received a Caldecott Honor. The second title, Frog and Toad Together, received a Newbery Honor two years later. There are four books in all, each featuring five short stories, and they are a staple of most childhoods. They certainly played an important role in mine! If you'd like to celebrate this golden anniversary, check out one of the books from the Hoover Public Library. You can also find good ideas on the official website from HarperCollins.
