Frog and Toad and the World of Arnold Lobel at the Contemporary Jewish Museum

The Contemporary Jewish Museum is hosting an exhibition celebrating Arnold Lobel (1933–1987), the award-winning author and illustrator of beloved children’s books, including the Frog and Toad series (1971–79), Mouse Soup (1977), and Caldecott-Medal-winning Fables (1980).

“The exhibition features over one hundred original illustrations and works on paper highlighting Lobel’s detailed illustration technique and warm, funny tales of love and friendship, mostly among animal friends. Lobel subtly reflected on human foibles in a charming world populated by a talking frog, a toad, an owl, mice, kangaroos, and other colorful creatures.”
