Reviews

Beloved friends Frog and Toad return in this work, a happy marriage of three of the original stories with clever paper engineering. The stories retain all of their wit and charm, and are enhanced by Lobel's intricate, lively full-color pictures that fold out and pop up and add a three-dimensionality that brings the tales to life. With the aid of cardboard tabs, readers can watch Toad's seeds grow, see the two friends splashing in the river, help them fly a kite, and accompany them on more adventures. This fun-filled book should prove a big winner on bookstore shelves. (3-6)

K-Gr 3 Three of the stories from the ``Frog and Toad'' books (Harper) have been adapted to the pop-up format: ``The Garden,'' ``A Swim'' and ``The Kite.'' The narrative for each story is word for word from the original stories but each is condensed into a four-page length. The colorful pop-ups are visually appealing and true to the nature of the characters and situations, and ``Frog and Toad'' fans will welcome a new look at their friends. However, for beginning readers, the amount of print per page is overwhelming, while the limited number of pop-ups will not extend the attention span of young listeners.
