May 22nd: Arnold Lobel, author of "Frog & Toad Together," was born on this day in 1933. Frog and Toad--there's no nice way to say this--are morons, and maybe that's what makes this Newbery Honor one of the most popular Early Readers ever! While your child struggles to make sense of the text, he/she is comforted by the fact that he/she'll never be as clueless as the dolts in the book! It's like hanging out with Larry & Curly while Moe fails his GED. Let's hear it for Frog and Toad!
