Frog and Toad Are Friends

Although not new books (they were first published in the 1970s), I can never resist the opportunity to recommend these masterpieces of children’s literature. Frog and Toad are friends who embark on gentle adventures and face (sometimes self-inflicted) dilemmas across the stories in these books. The tales are funny, wise and celebrate friendship in a way that children can easily relate to. If you’ve read them before, please go and read them again. If you haven’t come across them, you really need to read them!
