Frog and Toad Together (1987)
“Frog and Toad”: An Amphibious Celebration of Same-Sex Love
On a cool autumn day, a frog and a toad awake in their separate houses to find that their yards are filled with fallen leaves. But, unbeknown to either of them, after the raking is done and as they are walking back to their respective homes, a wind comes and undoes all of their hard work, leaving their yards as leaf-strewn as they were at the beginning. But Frog and Toad both feel satisfied believing that they have done the other a good turn. What does a child learn from this? That doing good deeds can make the doer feel good, even if those deeds go unrecognized? That those to whom we feel closest will never fully know how much we care for them?

It was a Caldecott Honor Book, or runner-up for the American Library Association Caldecott Medal , which recognizes the year's best illustration in an American children's picture book. Frog rushes over to Toad's house one fine spring morning in April, but Toad is not eager to get up. Frog eventually gets Toad up out of bed and no sooner does he explain about the whole new year they will have together than Toad decides to go back to bed. Since Toad has slept since November, he asks Frog to come back to wake him up when it is half past May. Not wanting to be lonely until that time, Frog takes advantage of the fact that Toad has not changed his calendar since November and rips off the month pages until he reaches April, but rips off the April page as well and manages to get Toad out of bed to admire the beauty of spring. One summer day, Toad notices that Frog is not feeling well and helps him to bed. Frog requests a story, but Toad has difficulty trying to come up with a story to tell his friend.
