G. Henebry (Parent Council Volume 5)
A very likable and friendly suite of early reader word games based on Arnold Lobel's amphibian odd couple. There are five activities, each with three levels of difficulty. "The Great Button Hunt" teaches logic, using shape and color identification. "Wake Up Toad" offers riddles. Story order is the focus of "Toad's Tales," and "Snail Mail" is a sentence completion game. In "Silly Swimsuits" the user is asked to solve for inclusion on level one, antonyms on level two, and synonyms on level three. Program navigation is simple. Most level one games are suitable for the pre-reader. MAC Or MS-Windows. 1997, Fox Toons Interactive, $14.95. Ages 3 to 8.

Frog and Toad are best friends; they do everything together. When Toad loses a button Frog helps him find it. And when Frog is feeling sick Toad cheers him up. Frog and Toad are Friends is a heart-warming collection of five stories that can be read one by one or all in a row. This set of adventures is not only interesting to read, but it is the recipient of a 1971 Caldecott Honor Award for Lobel s outstanding illustrations. Category: Adventure; Award Books; Beg. Chapter Books; Humor. Grade Level: Primary (K-3rd grade). 1970, Harper Collins. Ages 5 to 9.

I have sung the praises of the I Can Read series in both hard and paperback, on numerous occasions and in many places. Now Penguin have chosen six of the best to go into Young Puffin and one hopes that this will help them to reach the widest possible readership; The Frog and Toad stories and those about Little Bear should be part of every child's literary experience. I Can Read Category: Infant/Junior. . ...., Young Puffin, 1.25 each. Ages 5 to 8.

Annalise Taylor (Carousel 53, March 2013)
Now re-released as part of the Essential Picture Book Classics series, Frog and Toad are Friends is just that, an essential childhood collection of stories. These stories were first published as part of the I Can Read books; simple stories to assist children learning to read, and to read alone as they became more proficient. How many of today s reading scheme titles will be treasured for their stories in forty years time? I read and re-read my well-worn copy of this book when I had moved onto substantial chapter books, but I continued to be drawn back to Toad s na ve, grumbly character and Frog s optimism and wisdom. These stories are not fancy, they don t rhyme, they don t end with a punch line but there is a quiet warmth and humour between the two friends that as a small child I found comforting, and as an adult reading to my own children I found amusing. Those not in the know may overlook this book s understated illustrations, but they will be missing a long-lasting treat. Category: First Steps. HarperCollins (R), 6.99.
