Frog & Toad and the influence they’ve had in children’s books

Over a span of 26 years, Arnold Lobel wrote and illustrated many children’s books and received many accolades, including a Caldecott Medal, two Caldecott Honors, and a Newbery Honor. He’s among a select few to have been recognized for both his illustrations and his writing. Yet, while his name resonates with many, it’s his characters Frog and Toad who have become one of the most acclaimed duos in the children’s book world and a bit of a pop culture phenomenon.
