    1. Jill Esbaum Keika Yamaguchi Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Teeny Tiny Toady book, this is one of the most wanted Jill Esbaum Keika Yamaguchi author readers around the world.

    2. Full review with teaching tools: unleashingreaders/?p=9681I should be honest that frogs and toads are one of my least favorite animals. However, that did not keep me from loving this book! So much is truly superb about this book including the onomatopoeias throughout, the way the words hop like toads all over the page, and the joyousness of these toads’ family. I also particularly enjoyed the theme of this book–it definitely shows how you shouldn’t underestimate people especially if you ar [...]

    3. This is a fast-paced read-aloud that kids will love. A heartwarming tale about a very tiny toad who wants to save her mother from danger. Another victory for brains over brawn! Favorite scene - the seven BIG, strong toad brothers pumping iron, eating flies, and washing their hair.

    4. I should be honest that frogs and toads are my favorite animal. I love everything about them! Reading this book was such a joy. I loved how the words danced across the page. If you look at the image below, you will see the way the words pop. The toads are personified in a way that makes me smile. They high five, cheer, hold each other up, etc. Teeny may be little, but she is fierce. It takes her some time to realize that she has valuable ideas. I enjoy teaching my son to be critical of gender as [...]

    5. The message is universal and timeless: Even the smallest and weakest can make an enormous difference. Teeny Tiny Toady's mama gets caught and plopped into a bucket. Though her brothers try their darnedest to free her, they simply can't manage it. So Teeny Tiny Toady uses her brain to come up with a plan that saves the day. The rhyming adds to the fun. The illustrations are terrific. Definitely a kidlet pleaser.

    6. I was fortunate enough to see an advance copy of this book, and it actually broke my adorable-ness meter. Seriously, I had to buy a new one. And, for anyone who loves rhyme or likes to write in it, this book is a master class in how to rhyme effectively and creatively while telling a story with a strong, local plot. Plus, it's funny and, as I said, adorable.

    7. A little girl toad witnesses the abduction of her mother from the pond into a bucket. She scampers home to tell her many older brothers in hopes of rescuing their mother. The brothers' attempts at rescue all fail while they either ignore their little sister or take credit for her ideas. Eventually they all end up in the bucket too. But, the little girl toad comes up with a plan that ends up saving everybody. Cute enough, I suppose. As a mother of all boys, sometimes I get a bit tired of the ster [...]

    8. Rhyming books always run the risk of having the rhyme overshadow the story. But in this one (and all of Jill’s), the story is front and center. Breaking stanzas and lines over page turns lets the story rule the format and controls pacing. Children benefit from seeing the power of little voices. In this era of rough and tough, shoot ‘em up and blow ‘em up, we need stories like this one early on to showcase the value of brains, ingenuity and courage winning over physical size and strength. T [...]

    9. What an adorable children's book!. Lil' squirts can do big things. You can accomplish what you put your mind to do. Those are the themes of this book.When someone scoops up mama toad and puts her in a bucket Teeny runs to get her brother's helpon it's up to her to do the rescuing all by herself.Just such a cute book. Gotta find a kid to read this to.

    10. Yes, heroes come in all shapes and sizes, as Tiny and her brauny brothers find out when their mom gets trapped in a bucket.

    11. Wonderful! I loved everything about this tale of the little toad that could. I just wish the book was printed with slick, glossy illustrations instead of the dull finish.

    12. Adorable illustrations and easy to read rhyming verse makes for a fun time. When Teeny's big strong brothers can't rescue Mom, Teeny uses her thinking skills to solve the problem.

    13. When I conjure up mental pictures of frogs and toads, I envision ponds, lakes, tall weeds, cat-tails, algae covered water, lily pads, water skimming insects, and the croaking of toads and frogs. So when I saw the green cover of teeny tiny toady and the dense grasses and plants with a wee little teeny tiny toady in the center, I immediately feel in love with this picture book gem.Now personally, I'm not a lover of anything frog-y, toady, or reptile-y (I'm quite certain that is simply not a word. [...]

    14. This book full of adorably pudgy toads has everything: 1. Potential for a STEM-related activities. Teeny and her brothers must solve the problem of how to get their mom out of a bucket using the power of engineering! They build a ladder and Teeny builds a kite. 2. Potential for discussion of gender roles. Why do the big brothers not listen to Teeny? Why do they not give her credit for her ideas until the end? 3. Very fun rhyming text that bounces along. Sample: "Brothers tumbled, bumble-jumble, [...]

    15. Though you might need a couple of practice reads as I did with its slightly tricky meter, this text lends itself to a lively interpretation as a read- aloud, making it a great addition to any story time collection. Possible themes: Creepy Crawlies, Reptiles and Amphibians, Family, or Big Things, Little Things.As for the art, the toads were delightfully round, warty, and mud-colored while the blues and greens of the pond/swamp setting had you sure water might drip from the pages at any moment. De [...]

    16. Within the first page Teeny Tiny Toady's mom is terrifying grabbed by a child and placed in a bucket, while screaming for TTT to get help. Ok, kind of a scary, jolting start. The rest of the tale is about TTT's big burly toad brothers trying to get their mother out and getting stuck in the bucket during the process. TTT eventually uses her brains to help her family escape. The illustrations have a manga like quality which is a neat touch. Although the story is kind of on the unnecessarily trauma [...]

    17. I appreciated how this book was both entertaining and instructive to the reader. This book subtly taught the reader that, no matter their size, they can always help; the reader was introduced to problem solving. I also enjoyed how this book has the possibility of being interactive if chosen to be read aloud during a program. The range of emotions and twists and turns present throughout the book enable the reader to remain engaged and try their own hand at problem solving before the end result is [...]

    19. Young readers will definitely be able to relate to this adorable picture book, especially those who feel like older people don't listen to them or take them seriously. Teeny's mother was captured and trapped in a bucket. Seven brothers made several rescue attempts, but wound up trapped in the bucket themselves. It was all up to Teeny to rescue them all by herself. The detailed illustrations really help tell this story of courage and ingenuity on the part of the smallest member of the Toady famil [...]

    20. When I think about how many stars to give a book, I ask myself: "Would I want to read this again?"Answer: Nope.The illustrations are absolutely lovely; they could have been lifted from a short.The story is ok. The rhymes aren't too irritating. The story champions the underdog, or frog, in this case. But a kite? Really? Ok, I'm being far too adult-y of an adult right now and must stop. Blech.

    21. Teeny runs to her seven bigger brothers for help when their mother is captured by humans. But their brawn isn't enough and they won't listen to Teeny's ideas and suddenly, all seven of them are in the bucket, as well. It is Teeny, who must use her ideas to help save the day. "An idea fluttered deep inside her warty little head till she chased it round and pinned it down. I've got it! Teeny said."A simple story with a powerful message.

    22. Okay, so I'm a little biased about this book, at least as it relates to the illustrations, because it was illustrated by Keika Yamaguchi, who also illustrated my book WHAT ABOUT MOOSE? But this book is simply adorable. It's active and clever and full of fun language. The meter had one or two trouble spots for me on the first read-through, but overall a very fun read. And the illustrations are completely charming.

    23. This is darling. Teeny, tiny toady's mother is caught and placed in a bucket. She enlists her brothers to rescue her mombut they are unsuccessful and end up in the bucket also. Teeny thinks and thinks until she comes up with an ingenious plan. I like that her plan doesn't require her to be big or strong but does require her to use creativity, problem solving and intelligence.I also love the illustrations!

    24. It doesn't take the biggest or the strongest toad to save the day, but it does take one that's clever and has lots of heart. Teeny runs to get her brothers to help save their mother when she is scooped up and put into a pail. When her brothers fall into the pail, Teeny devises a plan that saves them all.Great read aloud text that has a lot of rhythm and rhyme to it. Digital artwork is lush and reminds me of a Disney movie in the best way.PreK-2.

    25. Oh, my! Teeny Tiny Toady’s Mama has been caught in a bucket by some people collecting toads and other creatures. Teeny runs to get help from the other larger toads, “wishing she could be a bigger, stronger/hero kind of toad.” Written in rhyme with pages filled with emotion and action, the story is one with a message, being little doesn’t mean one can’t contribute in a BIG way. Very fun story for the little ones, with a happy ending!

    26. Celebrate the triumph of brains over brawn! Teeny Tiny Toady has seven big, strong brothers, but no one listens to her clever ideas (unless he's claiming as his own) to save their mother who is trapped in a child's bucket.When only Teeny Tiny Toady is left to save the day can she? Will she? This pink, warty hero is pretty spectacular.

    27. Teeny Tiny Toad needs help getting his Mama out of a bucket! Can she do it without any help?The illustrations in this book are excellent digital renderings. Teeny's manga eyes are kitten-adorable, and the soft sketchiness of the illustrations are framed well with plenty of white space.Unfortunately, it is very text-heavy and the rhyming is a bit clunky even if the design is well-done.

    28. Love, love, love! The rhyming story was excellent with great comedic timing! I have a soft spot for underdogs and Teeny Tiny Toady finding a way to save the day appeals to me greatly. I was reminded ofNinja Red Riding Hood it was so much fun!

    29. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher, Sterling.A fun read aloud with potential for predicting what will happen next. Could also be used in a STEM unit by having the students invent ways to get Mama out of the bucket!

    30. Fast-paced, rhythmic, poetic read aloud.It was such a fun to read, I would love to share it with my kids if the beginning wasn't so scary. The book kicks off with a scream of, "HELP!" I'm not sure if some of them would be able be able to catch frogs again without imminence guilt.

    31. The cutest title ever! This story is shared in a rhyming format with onomatopoeic type works. 3T comes through at the end and I love this underdog type of books. The illustrations are water colorish.
