want to hear the story, not music

I love listening to an author read their own work, but the background music and sound effects were occasionally too loud and made hearing the story difficult.

Background audio is too loud.

Self explanatory title... great stories, but the support audio is annoying and overwhelms the narration.

Enjoyable story -

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

My two-year old loves to sit and listen to it. And she doesn't sit still for much. LOL! The recorded story is done well, and the background music is a nice touch, though sometimes distracting. I really would have liked to have had the pictures come through as this was a kindle version... you'd think with the technology it should be possible for them to do.

A Classic for All Ages!

I always love when the author performs an audiobook, and this is fantastic! Arnold Lobel reads the stories in the exact way I imagined whenever I've read through it (both for myself and as a read-aloud to my son). I love the use of music to enhance the story, both as background and sound effects. Even though the book is geared toward kids, it appeals to the grown-ups as well!

wonderful but no page turns

Would you listen to Frog and Toad Are Friends again? Why?

we will listen to this over and over again!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Frog and Toad Are Friends?

we love the story about when they chased the kite!

What about Arnold Lobel’s performance did you like?

these are just classic stories that have a moral to them!.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, it is fine all in one sitting, though there are several stories in it.

Any additional comments?

The only bummer is that there are no page turn signals for kids who are not yet reading! So sad!!

My grandson’s favorite

My 2yo grandson loves this book. I let him listen to it after we read several books and while he is still trying to go to sleep. It is a good length (some of these children’s audiobooks are just ridiculously too short). I have three of the frog and toad books but this happens to be his favorite for some reason.

Good story, not such good audio production

The stories are cute, and we have loved reading them. Unfortunately we didn't enjoy the audio version nearly as much. The music is too loud and, rather than being background music, can be distracting and sometimes annoying. Though the author is narrating, there isn't much distinction between the two main characters' voices. There is a subtle difference, but not enough to be easily distinguishable by young children.
As a side note, that doesn't affect my rating, Toad is narrated as a very grumpy character. I suppose that is how the author intended him, but I don't care to read him as quite so crotchety to my young children.

My two year old loves it

I do too. We listen to it every night before bed. He is a wonderful narrator. And it's long enough to put a little one to sleep.
