Frog and Toad

 Four decades ago Arnold Lobel wrote and illustrated Frog and Toad Together, and last night my son giggled his way through reading the first two stories in that book. Isn't that something? After forty years, Lobel's ability to capture kindness, friendship, and humor still resonates with the children (and parents) who pick up his early readers and open their covers today.

Last month it was announced that The Jim Henson Company would be developing Lobel's Frog and Toad into a film. I can't think of a better fit.
