Author: Arnold Lobel

Reading a book about fearsome dragons and giants makes Frog and Toad wonder if they are brave. The two best friends decide to find out by climbing a mountain! Learn how friends help make things better as we follow their adventures, then meet the live versions of our heroes, along with some of the other creatures they encounter on their journey.

Velma Glatch and the Way Cool Butterfly

As Velma Glatch begins first grade, she worries about being overshadowed by her older sisters’ accomplishments (or even being noticed at all). Velma’s love of science and a class trip to the Butterfly Conservatory change how she feels and definitely get her noticed!
