Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
On the advice of a teacher I bought these for my son when he became interested in reading signs but still preferred to be read to and claimed he couldn't read. We would read them together: him a line, me a line. The characters and stories are very engaging, for both young and old, so one doesn't tire of them. Then after a couple of weeks of this, one day he picked up the book and read us a whole page, and within a week a whole story. Months later, they still remain his first choice to read to himself, and we have lots of fun laughing over the situations that Frog and Toad get into and out of, as they relate very well to a child's normal experiences (ice cream melting too fast, not wanting to get up in the morning) and form excellent non-moralistic talking points about situations, solutions and behaviour in general. I am now about to buy some more of the Arnold Lobel books and several parents at the school have borrowed from us, then bought their own, copies. There are some Americanisms in the books, but they don't get in the way of a story that British children can understand and come to love.

4.0 out of 5 stars The frog and toad collection "box set" 20 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback
Just a warning to people. It says box set which makes you think that it's all of them. There are 4 frog and toad books and for some reason there are only 3 here. Apart from that it's hilarious even after all this time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic stuff 5 Aug 2007
By Sue
Format:Paperback
We read these to and with our daughter when she was much smaller. The time when frog had to write a list of things to do and started it with 'write a list' is part of a shared family joke now! Wonderful books which bring adult and child onto a rare equal footing as the humour and pathos of the little stories unfold. Am now buying for my nephew so that I can enjoy them again :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Arnold Lobel - hero 5 Mar 2007
Format:Paperback
How does he do it? The Frog and Toad tales are classics. Arnold Lobel's stories of the the two chums Frog and Toad have a fable-like quality. But there is no moral tone here - the two amphibians cope with life's small difficulties - a messy house, lack of willpower, a lost button - with each other's help, and a few failures as well as lots of success. The illustrations, like the text, are full of charm and wit. And the text is just right for young readers, say 6 or 7 years old, to cope with. Perfect!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 13 May 2010
By A Fan
Format:Paperback
I love Frog and Toad and I love this box set. My 5 year old is learning to read and the books she brings home from school tend to be extremely dull, i.e. children go to school for the first time, children have a haircut, ducks eat bread etc. The stories of Frog and Toad are unique because they are easy to read for learners but also FUN - the simple sentences have a lot of humour and non-moralising intelligence behind them. Now my daughter looks forward to reading time rather than seeing it as a chore and also likes to talk about the stories too. She loves "The List" and "Cookies" (the willpower bit at the end is hilarious) as well as the Christmas Eve story.

I would recommend this box set to anyone whose child is learning to read (and even to read to yourself!) and it definitely deserves its 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frog and Toad Classic Entertainment 3 Mar 2006
Format:Paperback
This is a wryly amusing book for the parent to read to the child, or for the child to read themselves. The style of understated humour makes it all the more hilarious. Neurosis for children - perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful frog and toad 17 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback
The boxed set contains Frog and Toad All Year, Frog and Toad Are Friends, and Frog and Toad Together. What fabulous books - true classics which have not dated. They were my favourites as a child in America; our UK-raised children love them now; they have been cherished by every godchild and friend who has received them as gifts from us... Fun to read and not too predictable, they are super stories with lovely illustrations. Thank you, Mr Lobel, for delightful books which parents enjoy reading. (By the way - if you like these books, also buy SMALL PIG, my other own-childhood-favourite-now-recycled-for-our-kids-who-love-it-too)...

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 6 Year Old Read 2 Oct 2009
Format:Paperback
After reading reviews, took a gamble that American Spelling wouldn't spoil the benefit.
Wow! These are light & fun for the reader & for the Adult listener. The layout is excellent, both type face & drawings - providing a easy move to a Story rather than Picture based text. So far no non-English Americanism's noted. After Julia Donaldson, the most enjoyed books by both reader & parent!
