What I loved: Each passage is a snippet of a story, but it is easy to take the message from each. Some of them are quite funny, while others are quite sweet. This collection is a really delightful read, and will definitely have readers wanting to go back to the original books. The illustrations and passages are really expertly chosen and connected by the overarching theme of friendship, presented through phrases accompanied by the passages and illustrations.
This book is really designed to be more of a gift than a book you would just read straight through, as there are snippets of story but no overarching plot. However, young readers will still enjoy reading through it.
Final verdict: Perfect for the friend and/or Frog and Toad fan in your life, this picture book is a charming collection about friendship.
