About the Author

Arnold Lobel (1933–1987) illustrated many wonderful children’s books but is most beloved for his Frog and Toad stories, including the first one, Frog and Toad Are Friends, published in 1970. The books have garnered much acclaim, including a Caldecott Honor for Frog and Toad Are Friends and a Newbery Honor for Frog and Toad Together. These were followed by Frog and Toad All Year and Days with Frog and Toad.

Anita Lobel's name is synonymous with the best in children's literature. She is the creator of such classics as Alison's Zinnia and Away from Home, and she received a Caldecott Honor for her illustrations in On Market Street. She is the creator of two books about her cat, Nini, One Lighthouse, One Moon (a New York Times Best Illustrated Book), and Nini Here and There. Her childhood memoir, No Pretty Pictures: A Child of War, was a finalist for the National Book Award. Anita Lobel lives in New York City.

It feels terrible saying you don't like a children's book, but I really didn't like this one. I loved Anita Lobe's illistrations, but I didn't like the text. It was too repetative for me.

Good for teaching about the Oregon trail.(3-4th)I enjoyed this book because it was witty and clever

Kids will love the art, especially girls with the flowers. The book had a lot more meaning once I knew it was written by a Holocaust Survivor. This could be good when going over the Holocaust to ask the kids what they think the symbolism is.

My daughter and I picked this book out at the Library.  She is starting to learn sight words and to read. I love this book because it has repetition of the sentences. It's made it a little easier for her to remember what word were what, even if she does have a little trouble with the different flowers. I will definitely be buying this book soon.

I love this book. The pictures are beautiful, it is these pictures that my grand kids like, the words are fun but geared for older pre-school kids as it is long in text. I will read it over and over as the pictures support the written work.

I've loved this book since I was little, and it's still one of my favorite gifts to give!
