You could literally pick vocabulary off of the level list and use the words loosely together, and you could publish a level reader.

Thousands have done this. What Arnold Lobel did, was to write some of the deepest most meaningful plot lines in the history of children's books and they ALL adhere to level vocabulary.

Frog and toad the garden edit ] Toad bakes some cookies and goes over to Frog's house to share the cookies with Frog.

Toad has made the cookies so delicious that he and Frog at first cannot stop eating them, even when they promise themselves to stop. Frog eventually announces they need willpower to stop themselves from eating all of the cookies.

Even though Frog puts the cookies in a box, ties up the frog and toad the garden with string, and puts it on a high shelf, Toad points out what they can still do to eat the rest of the cookies.

Frog eventually opens the box, but this time takes it outside and allows flocks of birds to eat the remaining cookies.

The Dream[ edit ] One day, while Toad is asleep in bed, he has a dream in which he is on stage and wearing a costume. A voice from an unseen character presents Toad as the Greatest Toad in all the world with Frog as Toad's only audience.

Toad does every act great playing the piano, frog and toad the garden on a high wire, and dancing and while he does these things and asks Frog if he can do them, Frog shrinks in size and admits he could not do them.


Eventually, the dream becomes a nightmare when Toad's dancing act has made Frog shrink rapidly to even be seen or heard.
