Lansing theater group brings ‘Frog and Toad’ books to life

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — A beloved classic of children’s literature has come to life at Riverwalk Theatre in Lansing.

“Frog and Toad,” a series of four books written and illustrated by Arnold Lobel, tells the story of two best frog friends that go on adventures in a wooded marsh populated by other talking animals.

The endearing books have been favored by many parents since 1970 thanks to their ability to impart the value of friendship to children through Lobel’s simple writing and charming artwork.
