If you’re like me, you’re always on the lookout for a fresh, new read, or eager to rediscover an old favorite. With this in mind, I decided it was time to survey the First Book staff to see their favorite First Book Marketplace titles for winter reading.
My favorite is: Frog and Toad all Year by Arnold Lobel. As a kid, I loved reading about finding lost buttons and all the other adventures shared by Frog and Toad. As an adult, I appreciate the fact that Toad doesn’t like to get out of bed.
