Arnold Lobel is widely recognized for his "I-Can-Read" books for beginning readers. In addition to these works, he also illustrated and wrote many picture books such as HOW THE ROOSTER SAVED THE DAY, created with his then wife, Anita Lobel. Lobel won the Caldecott Medal in 1981 for his book FABLES. He will be remembered particularly for his books featuring amphibian pals Frog and Toad, such as FROG AND TOAD ARE FRIENDS and DAYS WITH FROG AND TOAD.
"As nice to read aloud as they are for the beginning independent reader. The illustrations have soft colors and precise, lively little drawings of the imaginative and humorous events in the stories."
