Frog and Toad - WikipediaI wish for a second that I could lick my eyes, just to freak him out, just to make him watch what he says. So, I settle back on the couch as he goes outside to rake leaves. First, I love them so much I could weep. Second, he was right; I am just like Toad. And not only because I love cookies. They made me feel understood not just as a person, but as a queer person in love. The Frog and Toad stories, collected in four volumes, follow the adventures of two dandy amphibians.

By Arnold Lobel, Illustrated by Arnold Lobel
Frog and Toad are the main characters in a series of easy-reader children's books , written and illustrated by Arnold Lobel who also wrote Mouse Soup. Each book contains five simple, often humorous, sometimes poignant, short stories chronicling the exploits of the anthropomorphic frog and his friend, a toad. Some of their adventures include attempting to fly a kite, cleaning Toad's dirty house instead of postponing the chores to the next day, and finding out different reasons for isolation. Frog is taller with a green shade, and is more cheery and relaxed than Toad; Toad is shorter and stout with a brown shade, and while just as caring and friendly as Frog, is also the more serious and uptight of the duo. In , three of Arnold Lobel's uncolored, unpublished Frog and Toad books were discovered in an estate sale. They were consolidated into two books and colored by Lobel's daughter Adrianne Lobel.
On a cool autumn day, a frog and a toad awake in their separate houses to find that their yards are filled with fallen leaves. But, unbeknown to either of them, after the raking is done and as they are walking back to their respective homes, a wind comes and undoes all of their hard work, leaving their yards as leaf-strewn as they were at the beginning. But Frog and Toad both feel satisfied believing that they have done the other a good turn. What does a child learn from this? That doing good deeds can make the doer feel good, even if those deeds go unrecognized? That those to whom we feel closest will never fully know how much we care for them?
