Clara Gillow Clark May 24th, 2010 I love Frog and Toad and I LOVE Owl at Home. I'm sad that Arnold Lobel died so young. I'm sure he still had a lot of wonderful characters to share with the world. He lived on Washington Square Park in the Village and when I commuted to New School for Social Research on 12th St, I would sometimes drive along his street wondering where he lived. Btw–We share the same birthday! How cool is that? Laura Pauling May 24th, 2010 I don't think Frog and Toad will ever become outdated! kristinlgray May 24th, 2010 Mandy – a friend of mine had a Frog and Toad themed nursery for her baby. Clara – What a neat story. Happy Belated Birthday! Laura – classics through and through T. Anne May 24th, 2010 When I see classic children's books it makes me feel cozy and makes me think of fall.
