FROG AND TOAD by Arnold Lobel

FROG AND TOAD by Arnold Lobel appeared in the 1970s. It is a nice easy read,  a fresh, unsentimental story always with a happy end. The series of the books comprise: Frog and Toad Are Friends (1970), Frog and Toad Together (1972), Frog and Toad All Year (1976), and Days with Frog and Toad (1979). 
It is a very nice book because great care was taken that the illustrations and the story match in simple but clear visuals:

The Spanish translation is very good too: Sapo y Sepo son amigos, Días con Sapo y Sepo, Sapo y Sepo, un año entero, Sapo y Sepo inseparables.

  1. This book was so lovely.It should have been translated in different languages.Very informative and so true.Spanish translation or in any translation it would be a blast.Luckily, I can't see machines taking over the jobs of human translators in the near future, as they have done with so many other professions.
