Frog and Toad All Year (Frog and Toad, #3) by Arnold LobelMillennials are so frequently hyped as the first digital generation that people tend to forget that we were raised first and foremost with books. TV and the Internet may have shaped our identities, but so did old-fashioned, printed stories. Frog and Toad, two very different characters, make something of an odd couple. Their friendship demonstrates the many ups and downs of human attachment, touching on deep truths about life, philosophy, and human nature in the process. Their various struggles might involve deciding whether to stay in or go out, the difficulty of restraint when it comes to cookies, and the challenge of adhering to a daily to-do-list. Frog represents the practical and sensible part of the self, while Toad is emotional and tempestuous. I wanted to think about how fine everything is.

Add to Bag. If you love all the Frog and Toad stories as much as I do, it might seem like a sacrilege to rank them. But the golden rule of the Internet is that all things must be ranked, and so, here goes my attempt. Many of the Frog and Toad stories are parables about patience—waiting for your friend to wake up so you can play, waiting for the letter in the mail that never comes, and in this case, waiting for seeds to sprout in the garden. Procrastinators love this story, in which Toad realizes that his house is a mess, but plans to deal with it tomorrow. When he thinks about all that he will have to do tomorrow, he becomes depressed, so Frog encourages him to get his work done today. Toad decides to finally get his act together through that self-help cure-all: a list.

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?
