Essay about The Frog and Toad Series by Arnold Lobel
Frog and Toad …show more content…
During those long evenings and rainy days, Frog might pull some books from his bookshelf. One of his favorites would be, Tasha Tudor’s Through the Seasons. Her simple text about how a family spends each month, brought to life with her beautiful illustrations, represents the activities that Frog and Toad participate in through the seasons in A Year with Frog and Toad. Another book that Frog would enjoy is Stuart Little by E.B. White. Stuart Little tells the story of a mouse with a great love of adventure. Frog would delight in the bravery and his heart would pound as he read the adventures of Stuart, another diminutive creature with a courageous soul. He would also relate to the selflessness Stuart shows as he risks all for the sake of his bird friend, Margalo.
Alongside the fiction on his bookshelf would be volumes of poetry. As Toad comes to tea one afternoon, Frog might share with him one of A.A. Milne’s poems, Us Two. Frog places a high importance on his friendship with Toad and this is the most defining aspect of his character. He would enjoy the closeness of Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh and their desire to spend time together, whatever the day may bring.
