Throwback Thursday -Frog and Toad

It's time for another Throwback Thursday! This is a weekly feature I created so I can share pieces of my bookish childhood with you.

The other day I was in Barnes & Noble and saw something I hadn't thought about for years -Frog and Toad! It was an illustrated series by Arnold Lobel. I loved Frog and Toad, even though (or perhaps because) the illustrations consisted of only shades of green and brown. Each book was a collection of stories about their adventures. They each had their own distinct personalities: Frog was taller and more easy-going, and toad was the shorter and more serious of the two.

Who else remembers Frog and Toad?

Love and (a book) light,



  1. I haven't heard of these books. Lovely illustration though.

  2. Wow I don't remember Frog & Toad but I do remember the illustrations. I was obviously very young when I had these books as I don't remember anything of the story but those pictures bring back so many childhood memories.


Your comments always make me smile. <3
